From being ranked #1 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 List three times to becoming the first DJ ever to play at the Olympic Games, Tiesto has certainly marked his territory in the realm of electronic music.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, we can add another attribute to his endearing legacy. It’s been a decade since the Dutch mastermind controlled those famous BBC Radio 1 decks, and his sound has certainly developed over the past ten years. After announcing the launch of “Club Life Afterhours” on Sirius XM, Tiesto decided to drop his previous style of sound in order to unearth a genre known as deep house. To call his latest Essential Mix “underground” would be a cop out; because really, there’s nothing underground about it.
Tiesto fanatics may need a Xanax before listening to his latest two hour, chilled out compilation. Featuring more of that feel good tech-house, the original mix sort of side-steps that quintessential techno energy that Tiesto usually provides his listeners. The world of EDM consistently shifts from musical trend to trend, and most of our favorite artists are too abashed to take the leap into the unknown. First, Avicii went honky-tonk at Ultra last year. And now, Tiesto has shocked the world and taken his sound deeper than the Mariana Trench. These men deserve our honest recognition for exposing the possibility of negative feedback.
Trailblazers like these two men are far and few, and they have the ability to carry our industry into the next realm of production through inventive experimentation and doubtless creativity.
Here’s to the trendsetters.

It’s that time of the week again.
Here’s a few of our favorite sets, mixes, and compilations from the past week. Tritonal starts us off with their 17th version of ‘Tritonia’, a trance-based mix featuring some of Chad and Dave’s favorite songs from the past month.
Next up, take a journey into Pryda with the man, the myth, the legend, Eric Prydz. This particular set was recorded live last week at Privilege in Ibiza for BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix of the Week. Just press play, and kiss the next hour and a half goodbye.
And last but certainly not least is the latest from our favorite bro Pierce Fulton. Last night Pierce, Charlie Darker, Popeska, Audien, DallasK, Walden, and Something Good put on a live web concert on Spotify titled ‘Get Weird’. While only Pierce has uploaded his set, we are hoping for the other artists to follow in his footsteps. Check after the break for a free download!

The creator of OWSLA is back with a brand new BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. Skrillex has taken North America by storm and now he attempts to win over our brethren from across the pond with brand new material from his collaboration with German electro sensation Alexander Ridha aka Boys Noize. If hip-hop influenced, acid disco-house isn’t your thing, do not fret. Sonny has included plenty of jams guaranteed to get your motor running on this hangover of a Monday.
It would appear as if this former Emo artist is changing his style once again, but what did you expect? After conquering the dubstep scene and bringing it to the forefront of mainstream music in the U.S., Skrillex diverges into yet another electronic scene. It is quite clear that he has the production skills to take on almost any genre.
So, how does it sound?
Well, that’s up to you to decide. We think it’s just more great music from Sonny Moore.
Give it and listen and tell us what you think.
