Product Overview

Internationally recognized as one of the world's premier DJs and producers, TIËSTO's career highlights to date are many, but recent exploits include a GRAMMY nod for his last artist album, 'Elements of Life' and headlining both Coachella and Bonnaroo Festivals. After a run of four top-selling electronic artist albums, TIËSTO presents "Kaleidoscope", an artist album in the truest sense: collaborations with a variety of music talents from the worlds of dance, pop and rock: Jónsi Birgisson from Sigur Rós, Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Nelly Furtado, and Calvin Harris!

Album Notes and Credits
Fans of Tiesto's progressive-flavored trance anthems of the early-`00s were already well versed on the DJ-turned-producer's fondness for ethereal, siren-like vocals and epic-sized productions (best illustrated on female-fronted remixes featuring the likes of Sarah McLaughlan, Sixpence None the Richer, and Faithless). But, despite the relative pop leanings of such past collaborations, Tiesto never enjoyed major success beyond the club circuit. KALEIDOSCOPE, the producer's 2009 album, not only has its sights set on a more mainstream pop/rock appeal but--with guests spots from Bloc Party's Kele Okereke, Sigur Ros' Jonsi, and Canadian twin-songstresses Tegan and Sara--possibly beyond into indie credibility. Betraying the influence of the aforementioned Icelandic post-rockers, the album kicks off with the appropriately majestic "Kaleidoscope," a hypnotic, leisurely epic of dreamy synth pads and Jonsi's wispy falsetto. A consistent, dreamlike quality is sustained throughout, particularly on the piano- and breaks-driven "It's Not the Things You Say," featuring Kele Okereke, and "Feel it in My Bones," a gritty electro-pop ditty backed by the clean vocal harmonies of Tegan and Sara. And even if Tiesto's nods to dreamy indie pop and rock may be unfamiliar ground for his diehard trance and progressive followers, KALEIDOSCOPE contains enough unmistakably Tiesto-esque calling cards along the path that they're sure to enjoy the ride either way.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.117) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[With] flanged rhythms, kinetic yet varied tempos, and enough anthemic bursts of sanctified electronica to incite a stadium of football hooligans to dance..."
Billboard (p.32) - "KALEIDOSCOPE represents a virtual avalanche of personality."
Q (Magazine) (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[His career] will be enhanced by this collection of stadium-size anthems, which proves almost as big a surprise as its guestlist.
Artist Bio
TiestoTiesto's career is punctuated by landmark achievements -- the first DJ in the world to sell out a solo stadium event for over 25,000 people 2 nights in a row, he scored a number one hit with his single Traffic, the first instrumental track to reach the top spot in his homeland of Holland in 23 years. His remix of Delerium featuring Sarah McLachlan's Silence was the first house track ever broadcast on daytime radio in North America, (it became an international dancefloor anthem and also spent eight weeks in the UK top 10 chart). He played live in front of billions of people during the Parade of the Athletes at the official opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Athens. But despite his meteoric success, Tiesto remains grounded about his achievements and clearly loves making and playing music above the accolades it brings.The future for Tiesto promises yet further success, both as the solo artist he's become and the DJ we know him to be. "My Elements of Life album is doing well, In Search of Sunrise 6 is coming up and there will be more remixes, definitely," he agrees, "but it's hard to look too far into the future. Every couple of months it seems that something new, unexpected and exciting is happening!"
