Tiësto is moving at a speedy pace as 2014 approaches. Coming off a year that had his Stockholm compilation charting across the globe, he’s already moving forward with a new album. Broadening the horizons of his brand, Tijs has launched clublifebytiesto.com, a new site dedicated to Club Life interaction between fans and his world of music, travel, culture, art, and fashion. The site takes on the rapidly trending Pinterest model with seemingly unlimited scrolling and content made to be more easily shared — loaded as a myriad of photos and very few words. Club Life by Tiësto has also incorporated merchandise for purchase.Posted by
Another week of Club Life radio brings an unexpected track selection as Tiësto gifted a very special two-hour mix dedicated to the 1990s. Offerings such as Robin S’s “Show Me Love” and ATB’s “9PM” will evoke nostalgia during the first hour while Haddaway’s “What Is Love” and Danny Tenaglia’s “Music Is The Answer” does the deed during the second. Travel back in time with Tiësto’s Club Life episode 388 and find the tracklists on his SoundCloud page.Posted by
Tiësto’s trance and EDM personas are well-known, but a deeper side of him seems on the horizon. After releasing a Musical Freedom trap-remix EP last week, Tijs has announced the addition of “Club Life After Hours” to his Sirius XM channel. The deep and vocal house focused show will run for a full 24-hours beginning at 5AM on Sundays and ending at 5AM on Mondays. While he will DJ the inaugural “Club Life After Hours” mix, guest DJs are scheduled to take the reigns on future editions.
While Tijs considers the genres appropriate for chilled out easy listening, don’t expect to hear any deep house in his live performances. Tiesto explained,
“Stylistically, I don’t think [house is] ready for my live sets just yet because I like to play a little more energetic and uplifting, but who knows in the future.”

Time for another treat that’s been premiered on Tiësto’s famed Club Life – this time a gem from Parisian DJ duo Jidax, otherwise known as “The French Phenomenon.” The 21-year-old prodigies have released several hit tracks on labels such as Dim Mak and PinkStar, including an official remix of Avicii’s “Fade into Darkness” that garnered support from the likes of Afrojack, Thomas Gold and others. “Legacy” is a smooth progressive track complete with catchy vocals, an upbeat tempo and alluring buildup – merci Jidax.Posted by
Looks like we aren’t done with holiday gifts quite yet — Canadian production team Sultan & Ned Shepard just released an Indie Mix of their monster hit “Walls” off Tiesto’s Club Life Vol. 2 Miami from earlier this year as a free download on their Facebook page. As could be expected from the title, this mix strips out the big room sound of this track and replaces it with a twinkly and soft bottom line, perfect for ending a long night out. Enjoy the free track below!
Miami-based, Henrix has been picking up a lot of steam lately since a few of his tracks including “Let’s Rave” have been featured on Tiesto’s Club Life podcasts. His newest EP consists of five huge tracks like “Encore,” which samples the Jay-Z song of the same name — but not in the way you would expect. There is something surprising in all of the tracks, like “Destiny” where a hard-hitting bass is contrasted with lighter synths. The best part about this EP is that it’s free, so grab it past the break and let us know what you think in the comments.
We’ve got bad news for Tiesto fans: due to a back injury, Tiesto has “been advised to take the month of October off from performances.” That means his historic Los Angeles show at the Staples Center, along with a string of dates for the latest Club Life College Invasion tour have been postponed until February for the most part. Tickets for October shows will be honored at the rescheduled dates, but refunds are also being offers.
“I hate to disappoint my fans and be told I have to sit still for a while, but I am relieved we were able to reschedule the dates. I’m looking forward to seeing you all very soon!”
Keep reading for all the rescheduled tour dates, as well as ticket refund information. Get well soon, Tijs!
Update: Since the tour dates are now changed, supporting artists are not yet confirmed for the updated schedule. More information to come soon.
We’re still enjoying Arty’s latest releases like “Open Space” and his “Spectrum” remix, but of course he’s obviously still working on new material. Well, Tiesto premiered one of the Russian’s newest offerings on his most recent podcast, giving the world its first listen of “Grand Final.” As with most Arty tracks, it’s got a slow but uplifting build, and a nice section in the middle to change things up. There’s not much other info available about the track just yet, but check out an unofficial rip from YouTube below.
Tiesto already has his own radio channel on SiriusXM with a very impressive lineup, but he’s looking to add a new show to the mix — and he’s giving you the chance to host it. For the contest, fifteen winners will each win tickets to an upcoming Club Life College Invasion tour date and host a one hour show that will air on Club Life Radio. At the tour’s conclusion, Tiesto himself will choose one of the candidates to host a monthly show on the channel for up to six months. It’s a pretty incredible opportunity for an aspiring DJ or producer — hit the link below for all the details, and be sure to enter before the contest closes on September 21st.

He’s back with another quality offering, “Angels,” which premiered on Tiesto’s Club Life 269. Loi maintains the coquettish vocals of the original but breathes new life into the track with a melodic build and swirling synths. We’re keeping this San Fransiscan producer on our radar because we expect big things from him — and so does Tiesto.
