Local muso gets the Tiesto treatment
We've always wanted to sing on a Tiesto album but the closest we ever got was the shower. But for local Singer songwriter, Elan Lea, that dream is now a reality.
Elan will feature on the world famous DJ's new album "“A Town Called Paradise” with his song “Calling On Angels”, a track he co-wrote in 2012.
Talking about the track, Elan says the track was conceived during a " special trip" to the UK about two years ago, where he wrote the track with his good friend Andrew Murray. "I sent “Calling On Angels” to a long time friend who works pretty closely with Tiesto - don’t be mistaken - even long time friends can take their time to get things done! It took over a year and a half for that call to come" Elan recounts.
Elan goes on to explain what happened next. "Tiesto has heard your song and wants to know if he can have a crack at remixing it. I can't repeat my exact words because you’ll need to bleep too many words out, but let’s just say that what I said meant 'yes absolutely by all means, and how can I help?'"
