Tiesto: I always dreamed to have this job. I always wanted to be a DJ since I was kid and then when you make it, it’s the best feeling ever.
Stephanie: This Dutch superstar is one of the leading names in electronic dance music. He sold at stadiums worldwide and he’s played in front of billions at the 2004 Olympic Opening Ceremonies. Hi! I’m your host Stephanie and welcome to watchmojo.com and today, we’re speaking to Tiesto.
You recently parted ways with Black Hole Recordings. I know that you created a new label, it’s called Musical Freedom, so I was wondering why did you decide to create that and how is it different from what you’ve done with Black Hole Recording?
Tiesto: Yeah, with Black Hole Recordings, I mean I have an amazing run for more than 10 years. I thought it was time to change. As a producer, I changed a lot. My new album “Kaleidoscope” you can hear a lot changes in my sound and also, as a DJ, I’ve changed a lot. So, I felt like I needed a new home to put my creativity out. That’s why the label is called Musical Freedom because I felt like is the old label and everything, I was more in a certain corner, basically Trance. And now, I feel like I’m more open-minded for everything. I can make tracks with 360 Mafia, with Dizzee Rascal, with Black Body, with Cigarros.
I’m all over the place and I think that’s a good thing.
Stephanie: With so many different people that you worked with, who’s left that you’d like to collaborate with?
Tiesto: Basically, I just made a wish list of like 30 people and almost everyone want to welcome me. It doesn’t matter if somebody’s famous or not or down low, it’s more like, if you can add something to the song or give me inspiration, that’s more important.
Stephanie: I mean you’ve incorporated rock trends throughout your career, what’s stage are you at right now?
Tiesto: There are no boundaries anymore. I can play everything from really hard trends records to an eclectic Boys Noise Record. Expect the unexpected is nice for the show and I think people appreciate it too, that’s I stepped out of my safety box. It’s always safe to play Trance and everybody go crazy but it’s now more challenging to make people crazy with different music. I would say my style, you could name is eclectic.
Stephanie: Now, you’ve clicked for so many different cities all around the world for so many years. I was wondering, what do you think gives your music such an international appeal?
Tiesto: It’s just very pure. It’s not an act. What I do is just straight from the heart, what I play and then I’m almost myself on stage and also, the music I produced. I’ve been producing music to make hits or to be cool. I just make it because I like it and I play it because I like it.
It’s the best feeling in the world, when I’m on stage. When I’m a DJ, I’m just in the zone. I don’t feel who I am anymore, I just am living the moment.
