Tiësto, real name Tijs Verwest (born January 17, 1969 in Breda, Netherlands), is one of the world’s leading trance DJs. Although he has used many aliases in the past, he is best known for his work as DJ Tiësto. However, his latest productions have him dropping the “DJ” label and he is now known simply as “Tiësto.” In Europe, Tiësto is best known for his famous remix of the Delerium single Silence (featuring Sarah McLachlan) and for his interpretation of Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings. Tijs will be permanently attached to his Tiësto alias, an Italian twist of his childhood nickname, and this acclaimed remix that brought him into the strata of world-renowned DJs.
