Just days after his massive mainstage performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Tiësto is making headlines again with some brand new music. The Dutch superstar has just released a 4-track EP titled ‘I Like It Loud’, featuring collaborations with John Christian, Matisse & Sadko, Mesto and MOTi. Tiësto already premiered some of these tracks as ID’s in his set at Ultra, and unveiled right afterwards that he’d be releasing his new EP – which is almost an entirely Dutch affair – on Friday March 30th.
The EP kicks off with Tiësto’s collab with John Christian, Marshall Masters & The Ultimate MC called ‘I Like It Loud’. The track is a remake of Marshall Masters’ Hardcore monsterhit by that same title, dating back to 1997 when Hardcore and Hardstyle was already extremely popular in The Netherlands. Tiësto reworked the track into a fist-pumping Future Bass banger, guaranteed to rock the mainstages of festivals all around the world this Spring and Summer.
Next up is ‘Dawnbeaker’, a team-up with popular Russian duo Matisse & Sadko. The track is a true Progressive House anthem, but it also features elements of Trance with its high-pitched chords, as if Tiësto were to go back to his roots. ‘Dawnbreaker’ is one of the ID’s that the world’s former number-1 DJ included in his Ultra set last week.
The third tune is titled ‘Break The House Down’. It’s a combined effort between Tiësto and fellow Dutchman and Electro House DJ/producer MOTi. The highly energetic track injects listeners with a dose of main stage energy, by seamlessly blending both producers’ trademark sounds. MOTi and Tiësto have collaborated a few times before already, like on their 2014 single ‘Blow Your Mind’, and they even remixed several tracks together, such as Major Lazer‘s smash hit ‘Lean On’.
The fourth and final track of the EP is a collab with young Dutch prodigy Mesto titled ‘Coming Home’. Tiësto has been a fan of the 18-year old Melle Stomp a.k.a Mesto since his 2015 hit ‘Bouncy Bob’, a tune that he produced together with good friends Martin Garrix and Justin Mylo. ‘Coming Home’ is a pretty typical Future House track, with several drops and a thumping, upbeat melody.
The ‘I Like It Loud’ EP is released on Tiësto’s Musical Freedom label and is available right now. Check it out below via Spotify and let us know which track is your favorite.
