Read our interview with Tiesto below:
- What would be your top tip to give someone who wants to start DJing?
It’s very important to be yourself and find your own style. Never try and copy anyone else. Of course, lot’s of practice is essential
– If you had to pick a country, other than Holland, that you like to DJ in, where would it be?
I have to say the United States. I spend most of my time there and my big residency is at Hakkasan in Las Vegas.
– Who would you say are your biggest musical influences?
It’s interesting because growing up I was really into rock and heavy metal. I used to go to a lot of those huge rock festivals. So it wasn’t until I saw a DJ playing at a local club in my hometown in The Netherlands that I realized this is something I want to do. To this day I’m into a lot of different musical styles.
- How does it feel to have songs like ‘Wasted’ that are considered some of the biggest and best club songs in the world?
It’s really great. I go out an make music that I personally love, so to have other people enjoy it as well is something special
– Who is the best person you have worked with on a track or live?
I don’t think I can say there was a “best” person. It was fun to work with artists like Bono, Jonsi, Hardwell, and of course Martin Garrix, who I collaborated with on our upcoming single “The Only Way Is Up.”
Thanks a lot.
