[Epic] Tiësto & KSHMR ft. VASSY – Secrets (ARMNHMR & DATHAN Festival Edit)

Secrets (ARMNHMR & DATHAN Festival Edit)

Every once in a while you come across an awesome track that just makes you jump up and down uncontrollably. Southern California-based duo ARMNHMR (proonounced “arm and hammer”) just released this epic remix of Tiesto‘s “Secrets” with their producer friend Dathan, and it’s an absolute banger for many festival goers. Slightly speeding up the bpm, the duo cleverly incorporated trap elements into the mix. The vocals by singer VASSY was the perfect complement to the melodies crafted by the heavyhitting synth. They also spiced up the various beat drops, further shaping the to-be festival anthem. These maneuvers all contribute to the seductive vibe of this track.

If you dig this tune, or you even slightly bobbed your head to this, be sure to show some support and grab a free download of this track here. We can’t wait for their next release!

[TMN EXCLUSIVE] Interview – Tiësto

Icona Pop
I Love It (Tiësto's Club Life Remix)

In this day and age we’re constantly barraged with new musicians. Every digital corner we turn, tucked into every crevice of the internet, we find producer after producer who are doing impressive work. With that being said, there are few names that truly embody what EDM is and how it has came to be over the past decade. One of those names, a name that is a mainstay in both the EDM community and the pop community, is none other than Tiësto.

Dutch producer Tijs Michiel Verwest has been in the game longer than most, and has experienced far more success than most. Even beyond his accomplishments in the world of electronica, Tiësto has crossed over into the eyes and ears of the mainstream. His music engages both the nightlife crowd as well as your casual listener. With a list of accolades longer than have the patience to read, we’ll get right into our quick Q and A session with one of the biggest names in music.

TMN: First and foremost, it’s an honor to have a chance to ask you a couple of questions. We’ve been longtime fans, and we really appreciate a moment of your time. With that being said, let’s get down to business!

Let’s talk about your childhood. Your moniker is actually a variation of a childhood nickname, correct?

Tiësto: That’s correct, it’s a nickname based on my real name, which is Tijs.

TMN: What was your upbringing like in regards to music? Were you classically trained on piano? How many different instruments have you learned how to play throughout the years?

Tiësto: I do not play any instruments. What I do is create a melody on the keyboard and then fine tune it with computer software programs to make it perfect.

TMN: What about the early days as a DJ – what was The Spock like? What were your sets like way back then?

Tiësto: It was both amazing and terrifying. Of course I love music and so wanted a stage to spread the music I care about to other people. Still, just starting out and playing in front of a crowd those first times was nerve racking – especially in front of my home crowd!

TMN: What do you feel was the biggest influencing factor in your success from back in the mid to late 90’s?

Tiësto: Well it was really good timing. Trance and dance music was huge then plus I had a string of big releases. My remix of “Silence” by Delerium really brought me to international audiences and my album “Just Be” was enormous. Momentum kept building and building.

TMN: With so many chart topping tracks, it’s a little difficult to narrow down a few to talk about. However, we would like to know what some of your personal favorites are.

Tiësto: “Take Me” – because it sounds like the old Tiësto melodic sound but also is a more current new sound, similar to the records I am producing today.

Zedd ft. Foxes – Clarity (Remixes) [Released Today]

With every passing year, German producer Zedd increases his exposure tenfold, having gifted the world ubiquitous hits like “Shave it”, “Spectrum” and of course the much cared for single ‘Clarity’ featuring the longing vocals of Foxes. Today Feb 12th, with the help of Tiësto, Style Of Eye, Brillz and a Union offering their own talent to the mix, Zedd is releasing the Clarity Remixes EP containing four tracks, all of which bring a unique rendition to the massive single.

Both Tiesto and Style of Eye elevate ‘Clarity’ to a festival-ready big room level, exposing the contrast between strong electro house basslines with delicate serenading vocals. Union, however, converts the original progressive track into a light ballad following it with soft strings over a layer of emotional piano notes (ahh the feels). And if neither of these are bouncy enough for you, Brillz brings in trap-proof rendition.

Preview them below, purchase them on iTunes.

New: Kanye West – Lost In The World f/ Bon Iver (Tiësto Remix)

Kanye West and Tiesto, two juggernauts in their respective genres, can now be experienced together in one single track. An unlikely union, the remix of ‘Lost In The World’ had been circling around the web ever since Tiesto dropped it on his Miami Ultra 2011 set. After waiting for clearance Tiesto recently put it up on his podcast for our listening pleasure. Expecting something more mellow and house, Tiesto gives us a fast paced attitude filled rendition of the track that is actually much satisfying and original than some of his previous remixes to date.
