With house music flourishing at the moment, Tiësto is readying what may be his grooviest album yet.
Tiësto has certainly been a key contributor to the current boom cycle in the genre, achieving big-time commercial success with “The Motto” and “The Business,” the latter of which is currently pushing nearly 900 millions streams on Spotify alone at the time of writing.
