Charli XCX’s New Single “Break The Rules” Gets A Monster Tiesto Club Mix: Listen

Charli XCX is on a roll at the moment. After earning a well-deserved commercial breakthrough with Iggy Azalea‘s summer-soundtracking smash “Fancy”, the 22-year-old swiftly returned to the upper reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 with infectious The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack cut “Boom Clap”. In fact, the song was so successful that Atlantic Records had to delay the release of her third LP Sucker until December 16.

It’s time now to step up the promotion for the album’s second single “Break The Rules” and the Brit is clearly aiming for club domination by commissioning a batch of killer remixes. They are all pretty great but the most notable is Tiesto‘s ferocious overhaul. The legendary Dutch DJ ups the BPM and throws in some killer drops. Listen to the monster floorfiller after the jump.

Tiesto Debuts “Let’s Go” Featuring Icona Pop: Listen

“One night to save the day / We’ll show them all,” Icona Pop sings in Tiesto‘s “Let’s Go.”

While “Let’s Go” is hardly Tiesto’s first crossover effort (that may be his remix of Delerium‘s “Silence,” featuring Sarah MacLachlan), the bridge makes clear exactly why the veteran trance DJ thought Icona Pop to be a good fit for his music. That all-or-nothing attitude, matched with a slightly vindictive streak – all of that was in the Popping Up duo‘s breakout hit “I Love It,” a song that Tiesto actually remixed before this Town collab surfaced.

“Let Go” appears in Tiesto’s A Town Called Paradise (out June 17), his first release in five years and an album-length tribute to Las Vegas, where he’s hosted residencies over the years. Hear the new song after the jump. More »

Tiesto Announces Feature-Filled ‘A Town Called Paradise’ LP, Debuts “Wasted” Video

Tiesto‘s first album in five long years is a feature-filled ode to Las Vegas titled A Town Called Paradise. The Dutch DJ’s breakthrough hit “Red Lights” is included as well as new single “Wasted”. He also debuted the Matthew Koma-voiced floorfiller’s video today (April 25), which is set in the 1960s.

All fourteen tracks sound promising but it will great to hear what the legendary EDM producer cooks up with Icona Pop (“Let’s Go”) and New Zealand diva Ladyhawke (“Last Train”). Other notable cuts include “A Town Called Paradise” featuring Zac Barnett from American Authors and collaborations with dance outfits Krewella and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool.

Tiesto Follows Up Crossover Pop Hit “Red Lights” With Matthew Koma-Voiced “Wasted”: Listen

Tiesto‘s decision to try his hand at an Avicii-like crossover dance-pop hit turned out to be inspired. “Red Lights” swiftly became the biggest (non-remix) hit of the Dutch DJ’s blockbuster career and is still climbing the Billboard Hot 100. He’s hoping to find similar success with catchy follow-up single “Wasted”, which features the voice of Matthew Koma.

“Wasted” is an even bigger step away from the 45-year-old’s usual hard-hitting trance/electro-house comfort zone. While “Red Lights” crossed over thanks to an exceedingly catchy and commercial topline, its follow-up combines elements from pop, rock and EDM. “I like us better when we’re wasted,” sings Mathew over strummed guitar before the synths arrive. It’s instantly hummable and very radio-friendly, which is the whole point. Listen to Tiesto’s next hit after the jump. More »

Icona Pop Team Up With Tiësto On “Let’s Go”: Hear A Snippet

Icona Pop are not done giving the world shouty rave pop anthems, as they’re back with a feature on a new Tiësto track called “Let’s Go,” which is a very Icona Pop-y title for a song. The Swedish gals linked up with the Dutch EDM producer/DJ as part of some 7Up campaign involving seven DJs across the globe, and a 30-second snippet of the strobe-lit song can be heard in a new ad.

“Let’s Go” seems to mine that new folk-EDM sweet spot that Avicii unleashed onto an unsuspecting public with “Wake Me Up,” starting with a strummed acoustic guitar before it explodes into your standard electro-euphoria. Hear it below. More »

Tiesto’s “Red Lights” Video Is One Hell Of A Wild Ride: Watch

Put On Your Seatbelt!
Tiesto‘s brilliant stab at an EDM-pop crossover anthem “Red Lights” now has an eye-popping video that will, no doubt, be played in nightclubs and sweaty gyms for years to come. The theme of the colorful visual is finding freedom and that’s represented by a couple of small town girls (with supermodel looks), who escape their boring lives and head to Las Vegas.

Along the way the lovely ladies ride motorcycles, flag down cars by flashing their breasts, wash vehicles in skimpy outfits and swim in their underwear. After stripping their way to Sin City, our heroines crash Tiesto’s club, dance to “Red Lights” and even do shots of Jaegermeister with the Dutch DJ. All in all, they had a pretty good day.
