All about Dj Tiesto

Tijs Verwest was born on 17 january 1969 in Breda. His interest for music started very early,at the age of twelve he already created music. When he reached twenty it became very serieus. Now a days he is one of the most famous and beloved DJ 's in the world, according to Paul Oakenfold the "Godfather" of the English dancescene. Since november 1999 he monthly performes as a resident in Gatecrasher at Leeds, the most popular club of England. In february of that same year he has a break trough with his spectecular set at Innercity. And with Gouryella, a production with Ferry Corsten, he get's a Top-20 hit in England. But however the fame and glory of this incredible DJ the man behind DJ Tisto is still a very normal guy from Breda.

The beginning ...

Tijs has always had the feeling that he wanted to share his music with others. He never seriously had in mind to become such a star but everything became more and bigger. At the end of the eighties he mostly played in a little club called Spock, in Breda. Every thunderday, friday and saturday from 22.00 till 4.00 hour in the morning. At that time Breda wasn't the center of House music but that has made the style of his music and the final 'sound of DJ Tisto'. There weren't any other DJ's so he wasn't influenced by the style of others. Spock was very small club, however very extravagant like the Roxy. There was space for two hundred people.

"It didn't matter if there where less people, I could do what I wanted, the isolement from other DJ's was good. Through that I could develope myself and my music."

In the beginning of his carrier as DJ he mostly played new beat and acid house, sometimes some Madonna.Tijs likes the work of Madonna because her music shows that she likes to dance. Before the release of her album there where already dancemixes. for example 'Vogue' was one of the songs of Spock.

...Til now

These days his Dj agenda is filled till june 2000. In january is travelling to Japan for two weeks and half of february he leaves the Netherlands to go on tour in America. In The Netherlands he's planning to perform more exclusive, like two times a month at big party's and at festivals, that's for sure because he loves that! He also loves to do sets for seven or eight hours.

" Because when you play somewhere for two hours you'll never know what's before and after you. you can't play the same ID's. Seven hours is long to play and after such a performance I am exhausted, because when I play I have to translate my feelings into music. That needs a very hard concentration. Fifteen minutes before I begin I am so in myself that I don't hear anyone talking to me. Playing music is more than put some vinyl on my equipment. timing is the most important thing in house music. You can play the same tracks at two nights but at one night the public get's bored, the other night the people are partying there heads of! Beeing a DJ and perform is like a topsport."

Well there's one set everybody knows about and that's the one DJ Tisto played at the first Innercity. It was the breakthrough for him and his music.

" Innercity was one of the best party's for me that year, not only because it was my breakthrough. at that time I didn't even realised that but the party was very big and very good. The first Innercity was for me the first big night to DJ and I think that set was one of my best ever! it was a perfect set for a perfect public!"

After Innercity DJ Tisto's DJ agenda was soon be filled with festivals like the Love Parade, Natur One, gatecrasher summer 1999 and Hyperstate. He travelled also to party island Ibiza.

" The people who are coming to Ibiza just want one thing and that's good music and party! They are very open minded, I 've been there three times this summer, a week and two times for four days. That's long enough! because you don't get any sleep. The party at Ibiza is 24 hours a day. When you're going to Ibiza a week is enough, than it's still fun."

Tisto also performes monthly at Gatecrasher in England.

"Gatecrasher is amazing! When your standing there you see an ocean of people. It's a can full of people. Gatecrasher isn't very big, but there can party 2.500 people in it.The public is very faithfull to you. When you're in a little depression during your set the public pulls you through.They love breaks, when the beat faint they're starting to shout and scream, clapping there hands like the English footballteam has scored a penalty!it gives you the feeling you're giving a concert. The interaction with the Gatecrasher public is very special."

Unless the amazing succes of his work Tijs Verwest is still the same guy as before. He wanted to do something back for the people who already where his friends before the breakthrough. In authum 1999 he started a recordshop called 'Magik the recordshop' in the hart of is home city Breda in West-Brabant. Together with Arny, Tisto's bussinesspartner, he started there also the Blackholelabel. The serie Forbidden Paradise and the Guardian Angel label was the idea of Arny before.

Until now this is the succes and life story of this fabulous DJ, the coming year 2000 you can expect many, many more of DJ Tisto.
