The rise of sampling and the return of dance music thumping in the clubs mean that once again the DJ has come into focus. Tiesto, it appears, is at the top of his game and is atop the field. According to Forbes new list of the highest paid DJs, he made the most, scoring $22 million. This means Tiesto tickets are worth millions as club owners throughout the globe try and recruit him to blare his electronica laced with dubstep. The mere mention of his name is going to bring thousands to the club, making that venue the hottest club of the night.
His style is that of the future, combining the major club music developments since the rise of electronica since the late 1980s. Tiesto was there, then in his homeland of the Netherlands, and began an unlikely career. Over the course of time he has combined trance with the latest electronic developments and pop influences. This means a house-dubstep sound is the future. This should make the stock in glow sticks and reflective sunglasses soaring.
Stock in DJ Tiesto tickets has certainly soared, with 2012 being the ninth year he has orchestrated a world tour. With any hope, these latest Forbes rankings and his untitled globe-trotting trip will take him from third on DJMag’s Top 100 DJ Ranking to first. At the very least, the recognition from one of the most popular and respected magazines in publication and a few magazine television shows will boost interest in his most recent mix, Club Life: Volume Two Miami. So will the traffic he is receiving on the In the Booth Series he started on YouTube. Tiesto gives his fans a chance to see just what it is like to perform as a DJ for one of these gigs.
This has truly been an incredible year for DJ Tiesto. His accomplishments are gaining traction outside of his niche and he has even had his death falsely reported (that means a person matters in the entertainment world).
