LiT UltraBar boasts their brand new state of the art 75,000+ Watt Sound System and 60 DMX Universe Interactive LED Light-show.
He won DJmag's Top 100 DJs poll three times in the early noughties (2002-4), but if anything, Tijs Verwest aka TiŽsto is bigger than ever now.
"The whole year has been one amazing highlight, everything has been going great," TiŽsto tells DJmag when we finally catch up with him just before deadline. "Being able to end my College Invasion Tour in Los Angeles playing the largest single DJ show ever in the US was really something unbelievable for me, that's going to really be memorable for the rest of my career."
Even though it wasn't his biggest gig ever (he's kinda been used to playing stadiums over the past decade), his gig at the 26,000-capacity Home Depot Stadium in LA was a big deal in American music terms. Along with Guetta and the Swedes, he's crossed over into the US mainstream thanks to his enormous pulling power and hits such as 'C'Mon (Catch 'Em By Surprise)' with Diplo and Busta Rhymes in 2011. Does he feel like he's the originator of stadium DJ gigs?
"For me it isn't really about competition, DJs like Swedish House Mafia and David Guetta are doing great things and I'm loving watching electronic music grow so fast around the world," he says. "Right now I'm just focused on putting the best show together for my fans and giving them a night that they'll never forget." Music has always been the biggest passion in TiŽsto's life and he felt the need to share that passion with other people. Between 1985 and 1993 he performed as a resident at several clubs in holland and in these years he developed an important foundation. Together with Arny Bink he founded tge record company Black Hole Recordings which provides the world with all sorts of quality dance music. On Black Hole TiŽsto has his own Magik and In Search Of Sunrise Series, which are very succesful all over the globe. He also mixed the first two Space Age volumes, and most recently Nyana.
His remix of Delerium Featuring Sarh McLachlan - The Silence was the first house track ever broadcasted on daytime radio in northe america and was four weeks in the U.K. top 10 chart. In 2001 TiŽsto started a new sublabel, MAGIK MUZIK which is providing the world with TiŽsto's finest productions and his favourite tracks. The first releases were the 2001 anthems Flight 643 and his long awaited artist album In My Memory, and lately massive anthems from Umerk, Mark Norman and Mr Sam vs. Fred Baker. Summer 2002 Black Hole Recordings UK is born, a sister company set up to service the english market. After winning almost every dance related award in 2002 a crown was put on his career by being voted the number 1 DJ in the world in DJ Magazine's top 100.
The year 2003 has been a year filled with highlights. TiŽsto is now officially the first DJ in the world ever to sell out a stadium event with a solo performance for over 25.000 people. Like Nyana, the TiŽsto In Concert DVD has reached the gold status, same for the hitsingle Traffic which is the first instrumental track to reach the numner 1 chart position in 23 years. In 2003 TiŽsto has won 3 TMF awards (Holland & Belgium), 2 Dutch DJ awards, one MTV holland award, and was again number 1 in DJ Magzine's top 100, first time a DJ got this spot twice in a row!
