Pierce is back with his second installment of the Get Weird radio show. This time around the young music aficionado mixes together 10 unlikely tracks for an hour of pure audio bliss. In an hour flat, Pierce mixes tech house, progressive, trance and nu-disco to create a weirdly unique mix that is sure to satisfy fans of any genre. From Primordial’s “Solarity” to A-Trak’s bumping remix of “New Lands” this mix dips its feet in the underground and the mainstream.
AN21 & Max Vangeli have been fueling the hype for their debut album, People of the Night, since embarking on a tour of the same title last fall, where they let loose some of the album’s tracks. One of the most notable is their production alongside Tiesto, POTN‘s title track which has been released as the second single to follow up “H8RS.” Unlike the aggressive Steve Angello collaboration, “People of the Night,” embodies AN21 and Max’s sound that we expect to prevail on the album – melodic bangers with captivating vocals. The production is carefully crafted with uplifting chords, enticing bass, and a refined sound that works wonders in a nightclub but has the strength to move a festival audience. Head to Beatport to make “People of the Night” your own ahead of the album’s August 6th release date.
Let’s all just admit it: Tiesto wants to take over your life. In addition to invading your wardrobe, your headphone choice, your SiriusXM channel, and your iPhone games, he is taking it to the next level and launching a new Artist App on Spotify. Essentially, Tiesto will help curate a musical experience for listeners through the “Tiesto’s Club Life” app. We’re told that it will boast regular track selections, including single of the week, album of the month, festival of the month, and a periodically updated chart. Tiesto went on to call Spotify “one of the most exciting platforms out there,” before declaring that it is “helping to redefine the way people listen to music.” You can access the app right now from the left navigation bar in Spotify’s desktop app; no word on whether it will make the jump to mobile.
(Editor’s Note: Spotify has a free plan that’s pretty awesome — especially when you’re at work.)
While we’re not excited for school to start back up again, we are excited for potential enrollment at Tiesto University. After releasing a teaser a few days ago, Tiesto has officially spilled the beans on his newest Club Life College Invasion Tour. The tour will start in Syracuse on October 2nd and last eleven days, hitting different cities along the way. The Dutch superstar is bringing some friends along for the tour but we aren’t privy to that information just yet. If your school or city didn’t make the cut, keep your eyes open as more dates should be announced soon. Read on for a full list of locations, dates, and where to buy tickets.
Update: Supporting talent has not yet been confirmed. This post has been clarified to reflect that.
Update 2: (June 27) As we hinted, Dada Life and Bingo Players have been confirmed for “select dates” of the tour, and tickets are starting to go on sale. For full details, see the official website.
Update 3: (July 10) More dates have been added to the tour in Chicago and along the West coast, along with the addition of Tommy Trash to the lineup in select cities!
Pop stars, rock stars, actors, and heiresses aren’t the only celebrities teaming up with brands to promote their products, DJ’s are doing it too. After catching wind of Afrojack’s mayonnaise commercial we got to thinking about the variety of these advertisements floating around and decided to compile them in one place. The collaborations range from fitting to amusing while some are downright strange — nonetheless they’re all indicative of EDM’s explosive growth and influence across the globe. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments. (more…)
Tiesto has announced the follow up to his Club Life College Tour, which touched down at American universities from coast to coast last year and included his historic performance at California’s Home Depot Center. The 2012 college tour is set to begin in October, precisely one year after his last academic journey. Expect this round of Club Life to reach even more campuses nationwide and to heavily feature music from Club Life Volume 2: Miami. More information including tour dates and venues will be coming shortly, so keep it locked here.
Tiesto and Showtek may be opposite in production style, but that hasn’t stopped them from uniting for a maddening new track dubbed “Hell Yeah!.” Tiesto’s big room sound clashes with Showtek’s darker vibe to form a frenetic banger that is transparent through both subgenres. Both producers maintain relevancy on the track, featuring Tiesto’s sound at the prominence and Showtek’s hardstyle at its best – think “Maximal Crazy” on steroids. The unlikely collaboration didn’t make the final cut for Club Life Miami, but would have been one of the better offerings on the compilation. If you’ve been waiting for a harder effort from Tiesto, the day has come – ”Hell Yeah!” is available on Beatport via Musical Freedom.
Editors Note: This track was first previewed during Tiesto’s set at Ultra Music Festival 2012

Tiesto and Wolfgang Gartner have released the official video for “We Own The Night,” one of the first singles of Tiesto’s Club Life Miami album. The duo dedicates the video to all DJs around the world — you know, the folks who own the night — and consists of nearly four minutes of concert footage with some pretty cool visual effects. Not only does it star Tiesto and Wolfgang, but there are cameos from tons of other DJs, including Sander Van Doorn, Alesso, Chuckie, Benny Benassi, Dada Life, Avicii, Fedde Le Grand and more. In fact, it pretty much becomes a who’s who of DJs, essentially proving to the world that this is the unofficial DJ anthem. It’ll get the energy flowing — just as the world’s greatest DJs are supposed to do.
Tiesto first played his remix of Kanye West’s “Lost In The World” at Ultra 2011 and it has taken over a year to make its digital debut. The day has come and it’s been worth the wait – Tiesto has premiered the track on his 267th episode of Club Life. His remix of “Lost In The World” is unlike other electronic artists attempts to cross over into hip-hop – it is an extraordinary recipe when the legendary DJ produces a remix for one of the most famed artists in hip-hop. Both superstars are known to treat their efforts in grandiose fashion, so by coming together, they plan to outdo any electro/hip-hop grouping. Stay tuned for more information on this massive track as it comes our way.
