Ladies and Gentleman, step right up! Welcome to the Sound Circus — where all the house music freaks come together for a musical experience that will get your heart pumping, legs moving, and fists bumping.
I always love finding out that some of my favorite DJs are trying new things in the digital space. Tiesto – while at the forefront of his career and his genre, is also helping pioneer the social sphere this year at the CES conference in Vegas. This coming Wednesday January 11th at 10pm PT – Tiesto will play a live 90 minute set that HP/Intel will stream LIVE on Twitter. This is the first “concert” of its type on Twitter and will not only be looped for over 48 hours, but will also allow users to interact and engage with each other during the live stream. I think this is a unique opportunity for HP/Intel to test out Twitter’s new brand pages and for Tiesto to enlarge his social influence and music sharing capabilities online.

Sander van Doorn pres. Purple Haze ft. Colin Janz – Timezone *Hot new progressive track
Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re single or not ~ spread the love today! This mix of music is a melting pot of quasi-love songs…slow, sensual, sappy, & some for sexy time 🙂 Here we go…
Ok – my female vocalists are BACK yet again (this was by accident)! Don’t ask me why, but the songs for today speak of well.. independence, empowerment, and most importantly – having fun. I’d like to call these tracks more of “feel good” songs that act as a kind of inspiration for your everyday life.
For those of you that know, I always love to DJ the other Static Revenger/Richard Vission song – I like that. Well here’s the newest one! Static Revenger feat. Luciana – Skin I’m In (Mind Electric Slammer Remix) This is who I am and all that I need.
With a little latin flair to it, this one is perfect for summer! Jason Rivas – To Start Again (Jason Rivas Back From Ibiza Vocal Mix) Bring it back and start again. Work it out that only love remains.
My affinity for John Dahlback is definitely clear in the abundant amount of songs I have of his. This remix is another one of his “masterpieces” shall I say. D-Malice ft. Rebecca Knight – Poison (John Dahlback Remix) Like poison you take hold of me…
I remember when this song first came out (it was right before I saw him live). It was a hit then and it’s still a hit. Each of these remixes is different, so listen to both! Tiesto ft. Tegan & Sara – Feel it In My Bones (Marcus Schossow Remix) OR (Paul Webster Remix) I feel you in my bones, you’re knocking at my window, you’re slowly letting me go, and i know this feeling oh so, I feel you in my bones.
This progressive track is very smooth all the way through & I definitely love the singer’s voice. Check out the Zoo Brazil and Paolo Mojo remixes also. Mason – You are Not Alone (Glenn Morrison Remix). I used to think that my life had to mean something but it turned out, I had to find out the hard way…create my own meaning.
Another remix off of Tiesto’s Kaleidoscope album. This one is a little more progressive. Tiesto ft. Nelly Furtado – Who Wants to Be Alone (Andy Duguid Remix) Don’t take me home till the sun comes up.
To be honest, I wasn’t loving this song very much when I first heard it. Over time, it definitely grew on me. Let it grow on you too! Kelly Rowland – Commander (Original) OR (David Guetta’s Fuck Me I’m Famous Remix) From here on out I’ll be your commander, No fear no doubt, I’ll provide the answer
I have to say I was a little inspired by Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, & Ferry Corsten’s podcasts this week and last week. I’m not one to intently listen/follow trance (it’s a little too much for me personally), but songs that aren’t too hardcore do spark my interest! Recently, I’ve witnessed a transformation within the dance music genre. It is becoming more commonplace for DJ’s & producers to now create songs that fuse dance sub-genres together. From Kaskade & Morgan Page to Tiesto… these artists’ new albums have cleverly combined house, progressive, & even trance. While these sub-genres still exist in their purest form, as a DJ & music lover, it is refreshing to be able to listen to a little of everything wrapped in one song.

Ok – it’s Monday. Who REALLY likes Mondays? Not many of us I presume. This Monday is going to be different. Why? Because this post is going to be all about Tiesto! (Sorry in advance to those of you who are not fans). In anticipation for Tiesto’s slew of performances this coming week at LA’s Shrine Auditorium, I wanted to get everyone pumped up for the show – yes that includes MYSELF! I could literally sit here and name all of Tiesto’s top songs, my favorites, or best collaborations, but there’s not time for that. Since he just released new album Kaleidoscope in October 2009, I will be listing my favorite tracks off this new cd. Just as David Guetta’s new album featured numerous collaborations, Kaleidoscope spans a wide range of guest vocalists. This post won’t have any song descriptions, but a small blurb of lyrics (since I am a sucker for those). Ok, less talking and more music. Here we go.
Knock You Out feat. Emily Haines
Somebody to rough you up/Somebody to make it tough/Somebody to bait you/Somebody to love
Here on Earth feat. Carey Brothers
And the closer that you get, with the force of all the weight/And it’s also clear, do you want to feel her
Escape Me feat. CC Sheffield
Pierce my lips/Don’t shred me down to strips/You’re way too good at it/You’re way too good at it/Escape me
I will be Here feat. Sneaky Sound System
When the big road falls apart/And you think that the feeling will linger/You need somewhere to start
I will be here
I am Strong feat. Priscilla Ahn
Look at me, here I am (I am strong)/Reaching for your arms again/Saw the hurt and all the pain (I am strong now)/And get back on my feet again/(I am strong now)
Who wants to Be Alone feat. Nelly Furtado
But with that moon in the sky/Who wants to be alone/And when the stars shine so bright/Who wants to be alone/Don’t take me home/Til the sun comes up till the sun comes up
Feel it in my Bones feat. Tegan and Sara
I feel you in my bones/You’re knocking at my windows/You’re slow to letting me go/And I know this feeling also/This feeling in my bones
