Tiesto Honored For Contribution To Electronic Music

Tiesto Honored For Contribution To Electronic Music

It is a common saying in the entertainment industry that the more haters you have, the better you are doing. That statement seems to be quite true for Tiesto. While it may seem like there are many people who are unhappy with his departure from trance, there are just as many people, if not more, who adore his new style. And the adoring side has clearly shown its strength as Tiesto has just won the Edison Award for his contributions to electronic music.

The Dutch award is given only to artists who have dedicated their lives to the advancement of the music industry. Probably the most influential Dutch producer, this well-seasoned veteran was the very first DJ to perform at an Olympics ceremony. Moreover, he is arguably one of the main reasons why electronic music is as prominent in our society as it is today.

Tiesto has been voted the world’s No. 1 DJ multiple times, received a Grammy for his remix ofJohn Legend‘s “All Of Me“, runs a successful radio show and still makes time to perform at many festivals. Whether you love him or hate him, there is no denying that he has done incredible things for the electronic music industry.
