Born Tijs Michiel Verwest in the Netherlands, Tiesto got his start in the mid-'90s releasing hardcore/gabber tracks under a variety of monikers. After a brief stint collaborating with Ferry Corsten as Gouryella in the late-'90s, he garnered significant attention under the name DJ Tiesto with a massively successful remix of Delirium's 2000 hit "Silence". In 2001 he released his solo debut LP In My Memory, an impressive collection of songs that earned him superstar status with international club hits like "Lethal Industry" and "Flight 643". Over the course of his remarkable career Tiesto has released more than 35 DJ mixes, dropped more than 100 remixes, played on stage at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, and been named "The Greatest DJ of All Time" by Mixmag. In 2014 he made his major label debut with his fifth album A Town Called Paradise, supporting the album's release with a string of highly anticipated tour dates.
