The best of: Tiësto
Widely considered as the King of dance music, Dutch legend Tiësto has cemented his status as the industry’s godfather through a double-decade career packed with stunning live shows and incredible hits. We Rave You check out our Top 10 Tiësto tracks of all time:
10) Don’t Ditch
Teaming up with Marcel Woods, the Dutch legend pairs synth-led chords with a rumbling breakdown to form a party classic.
One of Tiësto’s more commercially successful hits, Redlights is a Musical Freedom classic, and always a highly popular part of the maestro’s live sets.
8) Maximal Crazy
Loud, brash, and in your face, ‘Maximal Crazy’ is a thunderous big-room production for flailing limbs to dance wildly to.
7) Zero 76
A Tiësto and Hardwell collaboration which introduced us to the latter, Zero 76 packs that famed ‘dirty Dutch’ sound.
6) Escape Me
A vibrant release from 2009’s Kaleidoscope album, the rich and silky smooth vocals of CC Sheffield lace this modern classic perfectly.
5) In The Dark
Throwing things back to the days when Tiësto was establishing his reputation as a trance-master, the emotive ‘In The Dark’ is a one-of-a-kind.
A pumped up dance masterpiece in unison with Mad Decent owner Diplo, ‘C’mon’ later received a vocal mix from Busta Rhymes, but it is the original which shines brightest.
Born in 2015, KSHMR collab ‘Secrets’ has already become one of Tiësto’s biggest ever with a simply gigantic drop we could happily listen to on a loop all day!
A true trance classic, Tiësto’s mix of this iconic original is the embodiment of all hands in the air, eyes closed, in a state of euphoria at Ibiza’s Amnesia.
1) Adagio For Strings
Perhaps the greatest dance production ever made, ‘Adagio’ has it all… from the orchestral string opening through to the Dutch master’s clattering drop.
