DJ Tiesto: Rock Star

Very popular Dutch DJ Tiesto has just completed a three date sold out run at Hammerstein which is interesting but not the reason for this post. Here is the reason for this post as reported tin NYT: “Tiësto’s next album, “Kaleidoscope” (Ultra), is due for release on Oct. 20; through the Hammerstein set, the video display often showed kaleidoscopic images. The album is not a disc-jockey set — Tiësto does those for Sirius XM satellite radio — but a collection of new songs and instrumental tracks. Tiësto collaborated with singers from inside and outside the dance-music sphere, among them Jonsi (from Sigur Ros), Kele Okereke (from Bloc Party), Nelly Furtado, Priscilla Ahn, Cary Brothers, Calvin Harris and Tegan & Sara. Most tracks are poppy songs about love, devotion and inner strength, buoyed by the trance beat.” This is yet another step in the evolution of dance away from anonymous DJing to the Mark Ronson DJ as rock star which is changing the genre by leaps and bounds.
