One of dance music’s most well-known contributors, Tiësto’s influence on dance music over the past 20 years has been decidedly profound. From his globally syndicated Club Life Radio show to his fashion collaboration with Guess and his dedication to aiding the AIDS epidemic in Africa, Tiësto has transcended the studio and dance floor to create a global brand. His achievements are vast and plentiful, including, but not limited to; a Grammy nomination, numerous MTV awards, performing at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games to an audience of billions, and even a wax statue at Madame Tussaud’s. From his humble beginnings as a young trance DJ, to performing worldwide for millions of adoring fans, Tiësto has truly become a universal phenomenon. His record label Musical Freedom, launched in 2011, is home to his own releases as well as those of dance music’s most promising talents. Hand-picked by Tiësto himself, the label has seen numerous Beatport chart toppers and launched the careers of countless artists. 2012 has been an impressive year for Tiësto; after working with superstars such as Kanye West, Coldplay, Gotye, Katy Perry, Bono and many more, the iconic producer launched his own radio channel on Sirius XM, released a line of headphones, and continued to tour globally at dance music festivals worldwide.
