DJ Tiesto---The Best DJ In The World
One of my favourite DJ's is non other then DJ Tiesto.Tiësto is a Grammy-nominated Dutch trance DJ and record producer.He has become one of the world's most famous people in the trance and electronic dance music scenes.
As his popularity rose in the early 2000s he became the first DJ to perform to a large crowd without any other DJs or opening acts.He is also noted for being the first DJ to play live on stage at an Olympic Games at the 2004 Summer Olympics opening ceremony in Athens.
In addition to receiving numerous awards for his work he was crowned "World’s No.1 DJ" 3 consecutive times by DJ Magazine from 2002 through 2004 and received a nomination for a Grammy Award in 2008,for his album Elements of Life.
DJ Tiesto had an interest for music since the age of twelve.When he was twenty he decided to dedicate more time to it and began DJing professionally at school parties and then moved on to become a resident DJ between 1985 and 1994 at several clubs in the Netherlands after his manager and friend Wilfred encouraged him.
In the mid-1990s,he started to produce trance,which led to his breakthrough in 1995 when he started building mixed compilations,something nobody else did at that time.
The last time Tiesto came to Singapore,i was working at the then Ministry Of Sound (Singapore).Trust me,u guys wouldnt have imgained the amount of people who jam packed the club on that night to witness Tiesto work his musical magic.It was pure madness and electrifying.People were so close to each other,there wasnt anymore room to fill the 3000 capacity crowd in the club.Not to mention the throngs of crowd lining outside the club to get it which stretched for another 2 km.
Below are some vidoes of DJ Tiesto in action,enjoy the music guys. =)
