Tiësto and JAUZ – Infected Out Now on Musical Freedom
Today, DJ/producer and dance music icon, Tiësto, released the new track “Infected” with one of dance music’s most exciting up-and-coming producers, JAUZ on Musical Freedom Records. The song, which will also be used by Budweiser in an upcoming campaign, and is available as a free download. In celebration of their highly-anticipated set at one of the world’s largest dance music festivals, Tomorrowland, the two powerhouse producers decided to gift fans the larger-than-life track, “Infected.”
“I’ve been lucky to have my fans support my music for so long. I’ve given lots of tracks and remixes away over the years (including my remix of “All of Me”) but I want to start doing it more,” said Tiësto. “I have a few new releases that we’re going to give away between now and the end of the year and this is the first one. I loved working with JAUZ. He’s made some amazing tracks and I think this one we made is huge!”
The artists worked together to create a song inspired by the transformation that happens when fans are immersed by the energy, experience and music at Tomorrowland. The song captures the belief that music is the ultimate form of self-expression, with the ability to “infect the soul.”
Look out for the original music video for “Infected,” created by Budweiser, to be released on Monday, July 18th.
