TIËSTO – Elements Of Life

With Tiësto

Directed by Guus Albregts

Dutch DJ Tiësto has been voted the World’s #1 DJ by DJ Magazine three years in a row (2002-2004). His superstar status stretches around the world as stadiums of dance music fans party facing the stage like there’s a band performing. But, it’s just Tiësto and his CDs, the video wall and occasionally a guest singer. Tiësto’s Elements Of Life album got a 2008 Grammy nomination and he also released a remixed version.
This was shot on his world tour at the Copenhagen show with a huge crowd. Some will still find this phenomenon strange, but at least he’s playing some of his own music throughout other acts like Deadmaus, Unity Street, Imogen Heap, Pascal Feliz, Miko, Breakfast, Carl B., and D’Alt Vila – 21 tracks in all. This is not exactly the Saturday night hotel club DJ spinning but a huge production with big sound, flames and fountains.
Disc 2 contains another 20 tunes shot at Tiësto parties, including Tegan & Sara, Delerium, Cold Blue & Del Mar, Airbase and 8 of his own cuts.
In the sleeve notes you even get a breakdown of the transportation, sound and lighting system, lasers, video projection, pyro and water logistics and configuration used on the tour.
Extras include an on-the-road documentary, music videos and TV spots, as well as an mp3 soundtrack.
