Tiesto (pronounced /ti?sto/; born Tijs Verwest (pronounced /t??s

v????st/) on January 17, 1969) is a Grammy-nominated Dutch trance DJ and

record producer. He has become one of the world's most famous people in

the trance and electronic dance music scenes. Although he has used many

aliases in the past, he is best known for his work as DJ Tiesto. On his

latest productions, however, he has dropped the "DJ" label and is now

known simply as "Tiesto", an alias which is a twist on his childhood



In 1997 he founded the label Black Hole Recordings with Arny Bink, where

he released the famous Magik and In Search of Sunrise CD series. In 1999

he collaborated with Ferry Corsten to create Gouryella. The act released

songs that are regarded in the club circuit as all time classic trance

songs. In 2001 he released his first solo album In My Memory which gave

him several major hits that launched his career as well as his remix of

Delerium's "Silence" featuring Sarah McLachlan which exposed him to more

mainstream audiences. As his popularity rose in the early 2000s he

became the first DJ to perform to a large crowd without any other DJs or

opening acts. He was crowned the "World’s No.1 DJ" 3 consecutive times

by DJ Magazine from 2002 through 2004.


Just after releasing his second studio album Just Be in 2004, at the

Summer Olympics he performed live at the opening ceremony in Athens,

Greece becoming the first DJ to play live on stage at an Olympics Games.

The live performance was released as the mix-CD Parade of the Athletes

later that year. He was chosen as the official ambassador for the

Dance4Life foundation in May 2006, and released the song "Dance4Life"

with Maxi Jazz to help spread the awareness of HIV/AIDS. In April 2007

he released his fourth studio album entitled Elements Of Life. The album

reached no. 1 on the Dutch album chart as well on "Billboard Top

Electronic Albums" in the U.S. and received a nomination for a Grammy
