The term 'Superstar DJ' is thrown around a lot these days.

However, there is one Dutch DJ who is more than entitled to receive that title.

Or should I say "SIR" superstar DJ! He tells The Fergal D'Arcy Show he he has been officially Knighted!

Tiesto has the stats to back it up:

  • 36 million albums sold
  • 8 billion streams
  • Grammy Award
  • “The Greatest DJ of All Time” - Mixmag
  • "The Godfather Of EDM" - Billboard

I chatted with him and was really impressed. He played me a track and I loved it but suggested a few changes to the melody and that track turned out to be 'Animals' I was so happy to help the new generation of DJs

- Tiësto on mentoring Martin Garrix

He also recalls fondly meeting the late Avicii for the first time.

He has also remixed some of the biggest stars from Katy Perry to Miley Cyrus and most notably John Legend's outrageously huge megahit 'All For You' which would have got nowhere without his crafted remix attention.

Irish people lapped up his 'Addagio For Strings' and 'Silence' and he has filled The 3 Arena.

On Irish fans:

"I absolutely LOVE you guys!!"

Listen here to this incredibly cool and sound Dutch dance legend chatting about starting in his teens and realising at an early age, "I can get paid for doing this sh*t woooaaaaah" how he loves upcoming DJs like Martin Garrix, his love for Irish fans, his many achievements in Dance and loads more
