00:00 Nov/30/1999

World famous DJ Tiësto is a performer that has transcended musical genres. His achievements include a Grammy nomination, numerous MTV awards, and performing at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games to an audience of billions. He has a globally syndicated Club Life radio show and a Club Life iTunes artist podcast and was voted ‘The Greatest DJ Of All Time’ by Mixmag in 2011 and #3 in the ‘DJ Magazines Top 100’ 2011. He has worked with superstars such as Kanye West, Coldplay and Katy Perry. He will also be making an appearance at this year´s Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Recently DJ Tiësto gave a short interview for the Forbes Magazine. He was interviewed by Dan Schawbel. In this interview he answered questions about subjects like his influences, daily routines and house music.

Tijs Michiel Verwest better known for his alias Tiësto doesn’t have many quiet days, as you would imagine. He’s almost never longer than two days in the same spot. Although the constant travelling might be fatigueing, he tries to keep a healthy diet and get as much sleep as he can.

Tiesto can’t actually pinpoint how house music took off in America, but he does say that a lot of elements have had to come together. Mainstream pop has been adopting elements of dance music and live shows. No matter what the exact reason is, the main thing is that the scene has erupted in 2012. He doesn’t really bring out which artists have influenced him in the near past. Drawing from a really broad range of artists and DJs, he’s always looking out for new melodies, beats and inspiration.

Of course a lot credit must be given to Tiësto’s fans which the DJ holds and appreciates most of all. Whenever he has time, he communicates with them on social media sites. A lot of people really enjoyed the possibility to witness gigs which Tiësto broadcast via Twitter in January.
