So I will say this. I saw Tiesto play his first live set in North America in Toronto, CA at a venue known as "The Docks". It was April 2000 and the crowd had little idea what was in store for them. All I can say is to find it on YouTube and look at the track list. Sure, the mixing isn't the best you'll ever hear, but the track list is why it was an instant classic. I'll never forget hearing those 3 and a half hours of classics. Man we had it so good back then! 😍😎

I first heard of Tiësto back in 1999 when I was in Virgin Megastore shop and saw his first In Search of Sunrise sitting in the rack. I recognised a lot of the tracks so decided to buy it, and immediately loved it. I was a big fan for the next couple of years, and probably the best memory was travelling from London to Bournemouth to see him DJ in early 2000.

We arrived at 22.00 expecting him to be the main DJ (playing at around midnight or something), instead he started at 22.00 and so we missed the beginning, but enjoyed the rest of his set. Once he'd finished, I noticed him standing at the back of the venue, sipping a drink and watching the next DJ. No one really knew who he was and so he was able to enjoy the music on his own for a while, before eventually leaving.

I loved Magik 6 Live In Amsterdam, but that mix album was probably the beginning of the end, in terms of me listening to his music. I can't really comment too much on his music since about 2003, as I haven't listened to much of it, but those early memories were great, and were part of the reason I starting buying records and learning how to mix.

One of my favourite DJ's / producers of all time... That is what i thought it was. I know since a few years that none of alle the productions or remixes that are 'made' under the name "Tiësto" were made by him.
The ghost producers that like Ronald Van Gelderen, Dennis Waakop Reijers, ... are the real ones behind the scenes. He has chosen for the money and popularity. Some underrated guys like M.I.K.E. Push, Ferry Corsten, Daniel Kandi, Fred Baker, ... should get more respect than this guy...

Probably one of the most overrated Trance DJ's of all time.

The new Insomania track is the first track in so many years that actually sounds superb from Tiesto! Great vocal progressive house!

Shocked to come in here after a few years to see how commercial this guy has become. Just a bunch of complete wank of electro big room house and dance pop. He has become washed up and flushed out so it is sad to see an artist like Tiesto do whatever he can to maintain in the game by leaving his old fan base and produce commercial dance-pop hits for 12 year olds.
sad sad sad.. But that is the price of going to the top. You have to come down at one point.

SO much salt in this comments section. Yeah I get it, the main consensus is that Tiesto's music has been declining since the turn of the decade, and I generally agree with that. Everyone thinks that pestering him over and over about making trance again will actually get him to make trance again. But no, that will never work. So get over it; stop wishing for nostalgia that will never come. Choosing to follow the trends isn't a bad thing at all. If you hate his new stuff just listen to his old stuff.

*gets completely pestered for having a differing opinion*

Used to make some incredible House and Trance music. Contemporarily, not terrible. It's no secret that his shift from Trance to Big Room House caused a noticeable drop in quality. However, while I'm not a large fan of big room house, his most recent works aren't terrible, just don't expect something far from the easily monetized generic music you'd find on Spinnin Records.

Definitely give some of his older works a listen. If you're a fan of big room house, his newer stuff may interest you.
