NEW YORK- On the eve of releasing his fifth studio album "A Town Called Paradise," Dutch superstar DJ/producer Tiësto delivers a unique live performance at SiriusXM's Electric Aquarium in New York. EDM has definitely changed the way the world sees pop music, and now mainstream music is shaping the career of the Dutchman. Moving from the chilly trance sounds of 2009's Kaleidoscope to embracing euphoric vocals of Matthew Koma and other album collaborators has transformed the 21st century Tiësto.
The Dutchman DJ gathered on the eve of "A Town Called Paradise" (out now on Casablanca/Republic) in front of a packed SiriusXM concourse crowd to showcase the latest tunes off the album. Beginning with an interview with SiriusXM's Ben Harvey, Tiësto opened up the interview fielding questions from the contest-winner fans in attendance, the prototypical question "will you ever go back to trance," and his thoughts on all the star-studded collaborators on the album.
After the conclusion of Harvey's interview, Tiësto then got the Electric Aquarium buzzing, playing an approximately 30 minute set of some of the hottest tracks off the album. Later airing on SiriusXM's Electric Area at 9 PM ET, Tiësto allowed fans to enter the aquarium while dancing and enjoying singles "Wasted (feat. Matthew Koma)" and "Red Lights."
Fans were then able to conclude the experience with personal photographs with Tiësto, ending a unique experience for all. "A Town Called Paradise" is out now everywhere via iTunes!
