DJ Tiesto - In Search of Sunrise Vol. 7

2008-07-31 05:22
Now that's not to say there's not a lot of that kind of thing on here – this is Tiesto after all - and he doesn't disappoint his legions of fans the world over with this formulaic trance-lite.

Not that there's anything wrong with trance-lite. CD1 is the more laid back of the 2, the kind of chilled melodic vocal trance one would hear at a beach bar or early in his set. CD2 caters more for the 2am dancefloor with its pumping rhythms and huge breakdowns. Both discs contain a number of exclusives and remixes by Tiesto himself and a number of the key players in the euphoric trance scene.

Sorted. All in all, it's a fine example of just why DJ Tiesto is consistently voted the most popular DJ in the world.

Truth be told, I put this most recent of Tiesto's hugely commercially successful "In search of sunrise" mix series into my CD player with great unease. I expected to be driven half crazy by a double disc dose of euphoric trance and hands in-the-air breakdowns.
