Call it poor timing, but for whatever reason, Tiësto and Swanky Tunes’ ”Make Some Noise” failed to make a lasting impression. Not to say it was a poor track, in fact the combination of Ben McInerney’s voice and Tiësto and Swanky Tunes’ driving bassline was quite engaging. Many months later, however, Musical Freedom has announced a forthcoming Dyro remix to “Make Some Noise,” to be released on February 26th alongside a remix from Skidka. In typical Dyro fashion, the remix employs a tremendous, enticing build up and a exhilarating electro house drop. While Dyro’s style has become a bit stale in the past, it seems particularly apt to this remix.Posted by
In anticipation of his Clarity remix compilation due out Feb 12, Zedd teased Tiesto‘s rendition of the powerful production today. Last year his concept album by the same name became a defining release in the young producer’s career. “Spectrum” — the first single off the album — reached number one on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart and a remix EP featuring reworks from artists like A-Trak & Clockwork, Arty, and Armin Van Buuren to name a few. Zedd is ready to give “Clarity” the same treatment with another extended play via Interscope Records.
Blazing into 2013 as one of Dancing Astronaut‘s artists to watch, Henrix treats us to his latest remix for Tiesto’s “Love Comes Again.” Straying far from the big room model set by Hardwell’s 2011 rework, the Miami-based rookie stays away from his ground-and-pound progressive sound and provides melodic structure. Putting a twist on Tiesto’s beloved 2004 anthem, Henrix expresses his versatility and continues to establish himself among the rising producers of our day. Oh, and we’re still waiting for Size Records to release “Hit It.”

As a DJ, it is a cruel thing to tease your fans for months while they anxiously await the release of your newest single. After many long weeks of holding out for more information, some fans may be driven to extreme forms of madness, while others will probably resort to sitting in front of their computers, hitting refresh for hours on end. Who knows–we all handle stress differently. The elusive culprit, in this case, is Dutch producer Sidney Samson. Since debuting the first preview of his latest collaboration with Martin Garrix last December, Samson has done little to quench the thirst of his countless fans who are (literally) itching to drink his kool-aid and get a taste of what is yet to come.

Watch This: Behind the scenes of Tiesto’s College Invasion Tour, its intense preparation, and school spirit from Zedd in Arizona
Tiesto set off on his College Invasion Tour last October, but had to postpone the dates after suffering a back injury. He picked up where he left off this December in Tucson, Arizona with support from Zedd and Allure. The event’s after movie — which is more of a mini-documentary on its own — brings us through the intense preparation required to throw an event of its caliber. Interviews and behind the scenes footage reveal dance music’s biggest stars clashing with the nation’s most dedicated party-goers and the chaotic results.
The venue in the desert had been transformed into a rave-playground with the same production used for Coachella, and Tiesto delivered a festival-like set for the college crowd. Even Zedd and Allure had school spirit in Tucson – watch this.Posted by
Tiesto picks up in the new year where he left off in 2012 — treating pop tracks to his big room remix remedy. Previously Tijs has taken his hand at Calvin Harris’s “Sweet Nothing,” David Guetta’s “Just One Last Time,” then Youngblood Hawke’s “We Come Running.” Next in line is none other than Passion Pit and their summer single, “Carried Away.” Tijs seems to have a way with indie pop, mastering his gigantic chords and euphoric energy around such vocals and mellow vibes. If you’re into Passion Pit’s delicate tunes and Tiesto’s grand sound, enjoy best of both worlds.
