This past May, Illenium disclosed the fourth and arguably most prosperous offering from his third studio LP, ‘Ascend‘ with “Good Things Fall Apart” alongside Jon Bellion. In an unprecedented sighting earlier this week, the Godfather of dance music himself,Tiësto, was revealed to be the single’s first official adapter.

The rendition serves as a shining complement to Illenium’s original breakup ballad, as the Dutchman pores over progressive synths while still maintaining the emotive epicenter of Bellion’s sultry lyrics. Fan expectations remained wary upon the remix’s initial announcement as it seemed improbable to do justice to one of 2019’s most colossal dance releases, but Tiësto has proven over time that doubt only emboldens him. With Illenium’s forthcoming studio album slated to hit shelves August 16, subsequent remixers will be hard-pressed to eclipse an offering of this caliber.

Tiësto reimagines Martin Garrix, Macklemore, and Patrick Stump’s ‘Summer Days’

Tiësto reimagines Martin Garrix, Macklemore, and Patrick Stump’s ‘Summer Days’Summer Days Tiesto Remi

Martin Garrix surprised fans by teaming up with Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and Macklemore for “Summer Days.” Given the star studded list of collaborators, the song has unsurprisingly become a global hit, reaching the 18th slot on the Spotify Global Top 50. “Summer Days” is catchy to its core with a groovy production backdrop that serves as a foundation for both collaborators to steal the show with their vocals.

Longtime mentor and electronic music legend Tiësto has remixed the release, and in typical Tiësto fashion, he has transformed the song into a booming big room track perfect for the mainstage. He retains the vocals from Stump, but he makes the entirely new big room house production the focus of the track, having the vocals serve as a complement to the electronic elements. Tiësto’s remix of “Summer Days” is out now via STMPD Records.

Avicii’s ‘TIM’ LP soars to No. 1 on Billboard’s dance music chart

Avicii’s ‘TIM’ LP soars to No. 1 on Billboard’s dance music chartAVICII TIM

It’s been just over a year since Avicii, known by friends and family as Tim Bergling, passed away, but the Swedish producer continues to make his mark on fans worldwide as his third full-length album, TIM, reaches the summit of Billboard’s Top Electronic/Dance albums.

Following in the footsteps of 2013’s True and 2015’s Stories, TIM is Avicii’s third LP to hit #1 on the US dance music charts, and with good reason. The rave DJ turned Grammy-nominated producer always had a knack for writing arrestingly heartwarming melodies, but Bergling’s maturation as a musician also came with a great deal of respect and appreciation for his peers, particularly singer-songwriters. True to character, TIM is 12 tracks deep and presents just as many collaborations, incorporating talent from industry goliaths like Imagine Dragons and Aloe Blacc.  

The success of TIM isn’t just a celebration of the life and music of Avicii, but a testament to his values as a creator. With all of the album’s proceeds going to the Tim Bergling Foundation, and further remixes from fellow legends like Tiësto, it’s clear that the beloved Swedish producer’s legacy won’t be fading into darkness anytime soon.

TIM was released on June 5 and can be purchased here.

Tiësto spins a fervent big room remix of Avicii’s ‘Tough Love’

Avicii’s posthumous LP TIM may still be on repeat for many, but it should come as no surprise that remixes from the who’s who of dance music are also joining the fray. Tiësto, who’s proven time and time again that he’s as much of a studio slugger as he is a festival trendsetter, just dropped his rendition of the Swede’s “Tough Love,” giving the Eastern-inspired single a club-ready flip.

One aspect of Tiësto’s skillset that’s allowed him to remain so synonymous with electronic music at large for so long is his ability to produce tracks which defy their own existing musical epoch. The Dutchman’s remix of “Tough Love” is no different, finding the delicate balance between fresh and familiar that his fans hold so near and dear. Such a memorable rendition is all the more possible because of the vision and talent behind Avicii’s original, allowing it the aural dexterity for a fierce remix such as this. Few-to-no electronic artists put as much focus into not just quality vocal recordings, but sophisticated and poignant songwriting as Avicii did. Tiësto recognizes this like the invariable veteran he is, creating audible space in the production for Agnes and, Vargas & Lagola‘s heartfelt vocals to carry the weight of the newly transformed club beat.

Tiësto, Jonas Blue, and Rita Ora strike a pleasing balance on new collaboration, ‘Ritual’Tiesto Jordan Lloyd

Tiësto, Jonas Blue, and Rita Ora are here with their highly anticipated collaboration, “Ritual,” and instead of it being a formulaic pop hit, Blue and Tiësto find a way to combine driving instrumental arrangements and a progressive drop into a crowd-pleasing product that’s fit for club floors and radio airwaves alike. The track was teased by all three artists on their socials earlier in the week leaving fans wondering which direction the trio would go with the release. Jonas Blue is known for his feel-good crossover hits, and the genre of Tiësto’s productions are always a surprise.

“Ritual,” leans on a building melody that features a humming backdrop juxtaposed against Ora’s captivating vocals. The break is a progressive highlight that is bound to find its home on the main stage. “Ritual” will almost certainly be yielding Tiësto, Blue, and Ora their next hit, and the release is out now via Universal Music.

Tiësto and Rita Ora announce forthcoming collaborationTiesto Hakkasan

Tiësto is back with his next high-profile collaboration, linking with Rita Ora for a brand new single. News of the collaboration broke with Rita Ora’s recent announcement on Twitter that she will sing vocals on Tiësto’s next track, “Ritual,” which is produced alongside Jonas Blue. Rita Ora is not new to the electronic music world, having previously been a vocalist for Avicii and Kygo releases.

“Ritual” comes hot off the heels of Tiësto’s recent EP Together, which features a collection of big room and house-leaning releases, as opposed to commercial crossovers.

The “Jackie Chan” producer peaked at 52 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his Post Malone collaboration, so it will be interesting to see how Tiësto’s next major pop collaboration unfolds. “Ritual” is set to be released on Friday, May 31 on Universal Music.
