Tiësto isn’t his real name — shocker, right? His given name is Tijs Michiel Verwest and, if you didn’t know, he is a Dutch disc jockey and record producer. In fact, he was dubbed as the “greatest DJ of all time” by the magazine called Mix, as well as this he was named the “Godfather of EDM” and the “best DJ of the last 20 years”. That is quite a claim to fame.
This guy specializes in the progressive house, future house, electro house, trance, deep house and big room house music genres (basically everything that will get you going crazy to the insane beat.).
But, how did this amazing man manage to climb to the top of the dance music world? Well, we are about to dive into what brought us this epic DJ.
This man’s music career began when he first started to put serious time and effort into this art form at the age of 12. When he hit 14, he was hired by schools to DJ at their end of year parties — what an achievement. From here, with sheer determination and help from is manager, he scored regular slots at clubs in the Netherlands.
His earliest notable projects began in 1994 when he released beats under Chemo and Coolman (a sub-label within Noculan Records). Later on, he signed with Basic Beat Recordings which is when his career really took off.
Surprisingly, Tiësto didn’t release his completely solo album (called In My Memory) until 2001 when he created his very own label named Magik Muzik. The next year, 2002, was a pretty big one for him too since he played for nine hours straight during the Dutch Dimension festival. Talk about hard-working.
Recently he has worked with artists such as Mabel, Rita Ora, ZAXX, Olivera, Dzeko, Post Malone and Preme to create absolute bangers which he showcases in his live shows all the time.
Not to mention that he has won many awards including MTV Europe Music Awards, Zilveren Harp Music Award, BG Magazine Award, Edison Music Award, Grammy Award and Mixmag Award, to name only a few.
While this super-cool DJ is based in the Netherlands still, he takes the time to bless us (and you, of course) with his presence during our Exodus festival. We are honoured to host such a coveted producer and artist that never fails to impress and entertain the bustling, party crowds that flock here.
