Megastar DJ Tiesto plans virtual treat for Scots audience

Dj Tiesto will be joined by stars including Nelly Furtado, Calvin Harris, Muse and Kele Okereke on stage at his Edinburgh concert next month.

But the Dutch megastar DJ won’t have to juggle diaries and egos.

The guests will be there virtually, thanks to an incredible new technology system.

Speaking exclusively to The Razz, Tiesto said: “On this tour, the visuals are unbelievable. It looks like the people are there beside me in 3D.

“I have a system called LiveSync, which is completely unique to me. It is the only one in the world.

“It looks almost like the people are really there on the stage with me.

“Even though I am mixing the records live, the technology lip-syncs it with the image of the vocalist so it looks like they are there, singing live. When my track with Calvin is on, it is as if he is there with me singing live.

“I always want to be the innovator and this new show is incredible.

“People who saw me last year will be amazed. It’s completely different.”

Tiesto has long been regarded as dance music’s top dog, but he admits teaming up with mainstream stars has given him a new lease of life.

“It’s another reinvention for me, ” he said. “Bringing in guest vocalists has changed everything and opened up a whole new world for me.

“It’s still Tiesto but with a much more diverse feel. My style has changed a lot. They sent me off on a wholenewdirection. Who would ever have expected me to make track swith Calvin, Nelly, Sigur Ros and Kele from Bloc Party? Such a crazy mix.”

Tiesto has been bitten by the collaboration bug, and has his next target in mind.

“I have a very big list,” he said. “I love playing festivals. It’s a great chance to meet bands and potential collaborators.

“My dream would be Muse. I just remixed their single and they are my favourite band. To get them in the studio and make a new track would be perfect.”

Tiesto plays Ingliston on March 6 with his new single, Who Wants To Be Alone, featuring Nelly Furtado, out one week later.
