Why do people hate Tiesto so much? I'm not really into trance myself but had a phenomenal experience with T. on the main stage last year. Anyone else? C'mon don't be shy, there were like 40,000 of us. Personally I'm into anything that moves me weather it's Tool, Radiohead, Boards of Canada, Mogwai, Ladytron, Muse, Aesop Rock, or the deepest, darkest house music you can come up with. There was a fantastic euphoric vibe at Tiesto that I experienced. My musical pallet is diverse, I assure you. I can't wait for Aphex. I'm stoked for Modeselektor. Digitaliism killed me. Rolled my balls of for Benny and most of Felix. I don't subscribe to any sort of trance following, but I just don't understand why there is so much annamocity for Tiesto. I have a close friend who is striving to succeed as a DJ playing minimal tech- house (in Scottsdale of all places) and even he has some love for Tiesto. It just seems like everyone is bashing Tiesto (the worlds largest ice cream truck) Anybody hate T. who used to like him? Maybe you just have to be really fucked up to enjoy trance. But even then would trance not serve that purpose? I'm willing to admit that I don't care for Trance in general but I'm talking about the party here. Furthermore I've only heard that Tiesto is a really nice guy in person.

Um, there were not remotely 40,000 of you. I've never seen that small a crowd at the main stage, seriously. People were fleeing in droves.

Also, Tiesto is fucking garbage. Endless sixteenth notes. That's all his unbelievably excessive synthy bullshit is.

Ehhh...okay i do not claim to be an electronica aficionado, i don't know any of the technical shit and i don't really care to. so i am sure some people around can give you some more profound reasoning.

but personally, tiesto is boring. im more into psy-trance myself. but i have heard better and more interesting trance at tiny ass la parties.

also it just bothers me that so many people who know nothing about electronic music think tiesto is the shit because of his name recognition, and they dont know anything better. or its cool to like him or whatever. its just false and annoying.

and why the fuck has he won dj of the year 3 times?? no one is that fucking great. there are countless other talented djs in the world who deserve recognition.

finally, his comment last year fucking pissed me off, i dont remember exactly, but something like I'm sorry I have to cut my set short, SOME PEOPLE DECIDED TO PLAY OVER, but I know all of you will be at my show in LA. Thanks everyone for wanting to suck my dick so hard. Tiesto has the biggest tastiest cock in the world!!!

I enjoyed his Coachella set, but I was a mile away, laying down on the ground...so I dont know if my opinion counts, but that 5min rant intro was horrible. I think Parade Of The Athletes is a pretty good cd... but thats about it. I dont care much for him at all. Not my kind of electronic music.. I prefer the Prodigy/Chemical Brothers/Justice/Boys Noize type shit.

Everyone gets their panties in a bunch, because they think tiesto is shit and shouldn't be getting all the publicity he does. He is basically the Dane Cook of the Trance world.

that is actually an excellent analogy.
dane cook is the tiesto of comedy/tiesto is the dane cook of trance

seriously... QFT.

Ok I guess i'll play along here.

I didn't see him at Coachella last year, but I caught him in DC last september. It was fun, none the less, but the man spun for 4 hours... It got boring after 1 and a half. Trance can't be spun that long - seriously, its just the same beat over and over again.

And I think thats why he (and other trance names like Oakenfold) get the shit he does - because trance is easy to make and mix. In my opinion, the "best dj in the world" list that he tops every year is more of a popularity contest... seriously, it should be called "most popular DJ of the year". But I have a feeling they base that list on success. After all, the man plays stadiums in Europe.

So yeah he is ok live. It's nothing spectacular. It wasn't anything close the amount of fun I had when I saw Felix, James Zabiela, Danny Tennaglia, and Sasha/Digweed a month earlier, but it wasn't bad. I had a good time, just got bored after a while.

So to sum it all up, Tiesto is ok. Would I see him again? maybe, depending on various factors.

I literally don't believe the man is aware of any notes other than quarters and sixteenths. That's fucking it.

You don't become the World's Number One DJ without earning it. All of you are jealous.

thats what i cant stand is he doesnt do that much real mixing cause he is to busy holding his hands in the air....just like when i seen oakenfold he was infront of the decks signing autographs the running back to quick mix during the last measure.....

he probably is a very nice guy.. and I actually own 3 of his albums and he has done some good remixes.. i would never pay to see him spin records.
but is Tiesto anything other than an avg. DJ?
no. pushing a button, turning a knob and then doing a jesus pose is pretty mediocre to me. why do you think he is so amazing? people in south america worship this guy, like he is the virgin mary. i agree with everyone who thinks he is the paul oakenfold of trance.. over-rated..
but don't take my word for it..

I've only been bedroom DJing for a few months, and I can say with the utmost confidence that I am a more talented and creative DJ than tiesto.
end of story.
that man can't spin for shit, he has no manual skills, he completely ignores the roots of both EDM AND turntablism, and he doesn't deserve his own gear.
he could replicate his set with a fucking behringer BDJ and a laptop, but to fake talent, he loads up a big old flashing table with tech 12s, cdj-1000s, and either A&H or pioneer all-digital mixers, all fucking midi linked, because HE HAS NO TALENT.

who spins real vinyl and digitizes it? tiesto. why? because he can't even fucking beatmatch, let alone keymatch without an automatic beatsync.

So then you wonder, what is Tiesto doing, that others are not doing? Marketing himself well? Obviouslly he is doing well for himself, as he can sell out arenas, and majority of DJ's can not.

frozen pilgrim
03-22-2008, 10:12 AM
that's EXACTLY what it is- marketing
tiesto is actually a lot like limp bizkit

carefully POST-produced, and extremely well marketed, but hollow and therefore prone to eventual collapse

If I had to guess, that list is based off of success and popularity.

Because he's 40 years old and married a teenager. Talk about jealous.

um. i might be mistaken, but i am pretty sure the dj of the year contest is entirely public vote, so indeed it is name recognition and popularity. and dumb fuck can vote.
