Tiesto - Kaleidoscope

It's Tuesday again B Siders...and it's time to introduce some more techno music in your life. Techno Tuesday has been beating your socks off for about a year now, and it's really helped me groove on some sick beats. Hopefully it has for you guys also. Tiesto here is a Dutch DJ, musician and producer. He's gone by many other aliases, but DJ Tiesto or simply Tiesto is his most popular moniker. He was born in the Netherlands in 1969 and started getting into music at age twelve. At that point he started DJing for birthday parties and stuff of that nature. When he got a shot to DJ in a club, he never turned back. He refined his skills in the electronic forum for a good number of years before going big time. Most of Tiesto's work in the past was trance style electronic - and this being much more collaborative with popular artists. This is considered his most experimental album to date because of that fact. Tiesto enjoyed this so much, he helped Three 6 Mafia with their track 'Feel It' featuring Sean Kingston and Flo Rida. His personal life has seen some tough relationship matters. He was dating a model, that didn't work out. He was engaged to a different lady - postponed the wedding multiple times due to not having enough free time, then broke the engagement off because they kept pushing it back. It's lonely at the top for a high end DJ. There is NO question he knows what he's doing behind the turntables though. Even this record, which seemed to alienate many of his die hards, is quite exceptional. There are a ton of dance tracks that will get your toes tapping. If you're in that beaty mood today, give 'er a listen.
