Legendary DJ/Producer Tiësto has unveiled his brand new edit of ‘BOOM’, teaming up with rap superstar Gucci Mane to form a potent floor-filling mix of his 2017 track of the same name. Out now on Musical Freedom/PM:AM Recordings.
Long admired as the man at the forefront of electronic dance music’s rise in popularity, the Musical Freedom label owner brings a heavy bass feel to the production, teaming up with Sevenn, as Gucci – a headliner at 2017’s Coachella Festival – laces the release with his fast-bars, and wittily lyricized flow.
“My track “BOOM” is already a massive club hit, and I figured that it still had some room to grow with the right feature. I’ve always liked Gucci’s flow and music, so I approached him and he was down! This particular collaboration came together organically” says Tiësto. “What I’ve learned about teaming up with other artists is that everyone’s ear is different and everyone has their unique approach to working with a track. I know my sound very well, which can make collaborations difficult because I’m not willing to compromise my style. But, when my collaborations work, they really work. This track is an example of that.”
This cross-genre collaboration comes after the original track’s massive success, garnering over 100M streams worldwide and widely recognized as one of the most supported tracks among DJs in 2017. As a sign of things to come, ‘BOOM’ kicks off what promises to be a hallmark year for the dance music icon.
In addition to the music, Tiësto has announced several major tour dates for 2018, including February shows at Festival Hall in Melbourne and Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, as well as a massive day-long event for Steel Yard London in May. Tickets are on sale now.
