I HAVE 2 COMMENTS.
They should change the title to the 30th richest business men that AUTO BEATMATCH CDJS for people with horrible electronic music taste.
THE ONE THING WE CAN ALL LEARN FROM THIS ARTICLE IS THAT, DESPITE BEING WORTH 65 MILLION DOLLARS, TIESTO'S TASTE IN WOMEN IS AS ATROCIOUS AS HIS TASTE IN MUSIC.
You guys obviously don't know that the reason why Tiesto is worth.
$65 million is because.
he owns his own clothing line,
he's been on the dance circuit since the 90's so he's a veteran,
he offers a paid fan club membership,
he has more world tours than anyone else on this list,
he's sponsored by big name brands like Coca Cola, Smirnoff, Pioneer, and a few others,
and he has his own record label which lets him keep the majority of his sales to himself as well as a portion of the sales of the artists that he signs.
Tiesto is admired throughout the dance world as a great artist but in the economic world he is revered as a brilliant business man.
Does Judge Jules still DJ? Surprised he's on that list.
Ian, I know you travelled in more underground circles, but surely you know this atrocity to music?
Says The Star's Ben Rayner, I music journalist who knows dance music better than most.Say's who, the douchebags that would have gone to that show?
It took the two studio rats, each rocking an uncharacteristically minimal array of electronic gear, a bit of time to feel each other out and massage their back-and-forth transitions into something approaching seamless, but that was part of the fun; the two-hour beat down was audibly live, utterly improvised on the fly and enjoyably raw. Hard as nails, too.
Although the end results might differ in complexity and appeal to different strata of electronic-music fans, Hawtin and Deadmau5 are both, at heart, adherents of punishing maxi-minimalism who can seriously bang it when they want to, and they really let us have it on Tuesday night. By the end of it, in fact, they’d sent a good third of the Stubb’s crowd fleeing into the streets of Austin and the volume was so intense that one half-expected to see flocks of migratory birds falling stunned from the sky.
Hawtin was maybe the dominant partner in this enterprise, but Deadmau5 — who’s a wee bit younger than Hawtin and admitted earlier in the day that he was slightly awestruck at the opportunity to play alongside Plastikman — held his own and reaped a good shot of credibility from the experience. And again: it was fun. I think that was the point. “Serious” electronic-music fans, myself included, sometimes forget that we’re allowed to enjoy music at a visceral level. It doesn’t have to be academic. It can just be a good time. This was a good time.
