Tiësto and KSHMR

Tiësto debuts brand new KSHMR collaboration at Ultra Music Festival

A key talking point of any major festival is undoubtedly the involvement of arguably the biggest name in dance music, Tiësto. And following his live set during Day 2 of Ultra Music Festival in Miami, this year was no different. Taking to the stage at the Florida festival, the Dutch legend treated fans to a new team-up with one of the most talented producers in the industry, KSHMR.

Having forged an iconic reputation over two decades, Tiësto has always been admired for his innovation and constant need to evolve his sound, despite many still hoping for a return to the earlier trance sound of his back-catalogue. And it is once more his innovation that can be praised here, as he teams up once again with the American DJ following their huge 2015 anthem, “Secrets.

The mysterious ID, dropped to the thousands in attendance, is a dynamic new big room piece with hints of reggae vocals and a meloncholy breakdown, moving listeners with a beautiful melody before exploding with a typically potent drop. This production is likely to be one 2017’s biggest summer anthems, so check it out now below and let us know your thoughts!
