From his tremendous original songs and remixes, unforgettable live shows and penchant for offering some of todays brightest stars their first big breaks, Tiësto is a dance music superstar in the truest sense. Voted “The Greatest DJ Of All Time” by Mixmag and the “#1” DJ by Rolling Stone, Tiësto was one of the first dance music artists to break through into popular culture having performed at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games while also having a statue at the famed Madame Tussauds created in his honor. He’s also the only dance music artist to have their own channel on Sirius XM.
Last night was the 57th Grammy Awards, and truly a day to remember as the Electronic Dance genre catches the attention of a rapidly expanding audience.
Among his groundbreaking accomplishments, Tiesto has won many awards but this is his first ever Grammy Award for Best Mixed Recording of his “All Of Me” (Tiesto’s Birthday Treatment Remix).
“Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to accomplish so many of my dreams and goals but it wasn’t until last night that I was able to bring home something that I’ve wanted for a very long time. It was such an honor to step on that stage and accept the Grammy for Best Remix for my remix of John Legend’s “All Of Me”. Receiving the award for this remix was even more special because I made this remix only because I loved the song and thought I could add something special to it and John agreed! I want to dedicate this award to all of my fans for their love and support.”

And Tiesto wasn’t the only one making moves into the Grammy nominations, in the same category with Tiesto were Ming, Audien, Eddie Amador, Kaskade and Robin Schulz!! Aphex Twin, DeadMau5, Little Dragon, Röyksopp & Robyn and Matt Zo were all nominees for Best Electronic Dance Album. In addition Basement Jaxx, Disclosure, Duke Dumont, and Zhu for their nominations for Best Dance Recording.
Our genre expands into the music world as a whole more and more with each year, reminding us that music will always find a way to connect us all.
