"I had heard their record and really love what they are doing," Tiesto tells Spinner. "My manager tracked them down and we hooked up, but I know they liked it."
The enlessly touring DJ is currently promoting his recent mixed-album 'In Search of Sunrise, Vol. 7.' "On a typical day, I leave the hotel around noon, fly for two hours, arrive in the new city, do about one hour of interviews, soundcheck, have dinner with promoters, friends and other artists, hang back stage for an hour and then perform," he says.
Tiësto's dropping many new tracks this time 'round, straying from many of his older productions that have been staples of his set in years past. "Expect some never heard before rare remixes and Tiësto custom made tracks," he says of the tour and evolving sound. "Being labeled just Trance wouldn't do me justice. I am a melodic DJ. I love melody and vocals and since that is known as Trance, I don't mind."
Meanwhile, catch a lo-fi video of Tiësto teaming with his girls Tegan and Sara at Bonnaroo, below.
Tiësto is currently in the midst of a three-night stint at NYC's Webster Hall. See a full list of dates here.
