If the strength of an artist’s performance at Ultra Music Festival, the official opener to each festival season, predicts that of one’s year as Hardwell claims, then Tiësto is positioned to make nothing but power moves in 2018.

Tiësto’s no-holds-barred performance at Ultra 20 notably featured five new IDs, and the announcement that the festival favorite would drop an ensuing EP on the Friday following the conclusion of Ultra’s anniversary celebration. After the consecutive release of two singles that signaled the sonic leanings of the EP, “Dawnbreaker,” and “Coming Home,” I Like It Loud has arrived just in time to quell fans’ post-Ultra blues.

Although “Dawnbreaker” deviates from Tiësto’s recent gravitation towards the big room constructions characteristic of commercial festival sets in its more muted approach, one distinctly reminiscent of Tiësto’s trance beginnings, I Like It Loud is a product of palpable, main stage-oriented energy. The EP’s title anticipates the vigor of the production as a whole, one that is further supplemented by the two remaining tracks on the EP, the eponymous “I Like It Loud,” and “Break The House Down.” The first release since Tiësto’s fifth studio album in 2014, the songs that comprise I Like It Loud will render the EP a formidable force in the 2018 festival circuit.

Tiësto shines in new collaboration with Matisse & Sadko

Tiësto is set to release a new EP on March 31. Ahead of time, he gave fans a preview of what to expect with “Dawnbreaker” — a collaboration between the electronic music legend and Matisse & Sadko, and it is out now on his label Musical Freedom.

This track is among the five new songs that Tiësto debuted during his set at Ultra Music Festival, and it is a divergence from the commercial and big room house the producer has been putting out as of late. The track is almost reminiscent of his trance roots, with high-pitched chords and an upbeat vibe. Tiësto fans of all varieties will certainly welcome this new EP if “Dawnbreaker” is indicative of the EP’s style as a whole.

Ultra celebrated a monumental twentieth anniversary this past weekend. Organizers wrapped UMF’s birthday with several landmark wins — its acquisition of Winter Music Conference, a Swedish House Mafia reunion, and a long-fought promise to return to their beloved venue at Miami’s Bayfront Park.

Along with the weekend came a bevy of top industry taste maskers spotlighting the upcoming year’s most popular dance floor anthems in their sets.  Over the weekend, 1001tracklists.com compiled a list of the Top Ten most-played tracks at Ultra Music Festival. From singles one might expected to see from names like DrakeSkrillex, and GTA, a deeper listen into the list reveals some tracks that will surely surprise and delight.

In years past, the tracks dominating Ultra’s main stage were seen as a way to forecast which generic trends might be dominating the festival season cycle. The sheer diversity in this year’s compiled list displays a wider range of genre crossing, however, which speaks to dance music’s diversification of tastes and sounds.

Here are the top ten tracks most played tracks at Ultra 2018.


1. Drake – God’s Plan [OVO]


2. Gammer – The Drop [Monstercat]


3. 4B &TEEZ – Whistle [Premiere Class]

On March 23, Tiësto took to the Ultra 20 main stage for a special sunset performance. During his 90-minute set, the godfather of dance music brought out a couple of surprise appearances, including his fabled alter ego, Marshmello, along with a loveable closing moment when his fiancé, model Annika Backes, joined him for a kiss.

What made Tiësto’s performance so special, however, was how much unreleased new music the Dutch powerhouse producer dropped onto his Miami audience — five brand new tracks, to be exact. The new music will be a part of Tiësto’s new EP being release this Friday, March 30th. The release marks the first new material from Tiësto since 2014, when he released his fifth studio album, A Town Called Paradise.
