"Incredible!" says Tiësto when asked how life has been since the birth of his son just weeks ago. “Being a dad is the best and I highly recommend it!" His second child arrived around 18 months after his first daughter was born, so you might think music is not top of his agenda right now. How wrong you'd be: "I can’t wait to teach him how to DJ," beams the Dutch legend. “I think my goal is to collaborate on future tracks with him, and also with my daughter because we need more female DJs in this world!”
Also this year, the ever-present Top 100 star was excited to be back in Europe playing shows. He is someone who is famously always on the move musically. “My sound is always evolving slowly but steadily,” he reckons. “I just like to play what I love, a bit of classic old stuff combined with fresh new sounds.”
Tiësto has a much anticipated new album coming in 2023, but before that, he has "plenty of bangers" coming on his own Musical Freedom label.
