Tiësto & Paul van Dyk Are The Most Traveled Musicians Of All Times

One of the major differences between EDM acts and other acts, be it rock or country or rap or whatever, is the amount of touring that goes into their performances. While major rock groups like the Rolling Stones and Muse will embark on epic world tours in dozens and dozens of cities, they generally happen at most once a year – likely less than that. Dance music acts, on the other hand, travel constantly due to residencies, tours, support, and one-off shows that you might never even hear about.

Because of this, two EDM acts have been tagged by Travelbird as the most traveled musicians of all time. Those two acts are Tiësto & Paul van Dyk.

Over the course of his career, spanning over two decades, Tiësto has reportedly traveled over 1.5 million miles, two hundred thousand of which were just in the last 12 months alone. That adds up to the equivalent of 62.53 revolutions around the world, or 6.52 trips to the moon.

Comparatively, Paul van Dyk has traveled 1,442,933 miles; 115,968 of those miles were in the past twelve months. However, van Dyk famously suffered a crippling injury last February when he fell off stage at an ASOT show which caused him to cut out a large portion of his travels. We expect that his numbers for the last year would be significantly higher if not for that accident.

Tiësto & Paul van Dyk beat out world-famous musicians like Bob Dylan, Metallica, and Aerosmith for the top two spots – and their touring in the last 12 months is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition, as well.

Tiësto & Slushii Are Collaborating [Video]

Tiësto and Slushii have been sighted in the studio together, and their collaboration sounds oh-so-juicy. The unexpected project sports typical Slushii production, with some added melodic flair a la Tiësto.

We have no idea when the track will be releasing, but it sounds pretty well pieced together already. It’s only a matter of time before this starts shredding its way through live sets to the jubilation of fans around the world. All signs are pointing to Slushii having a massive 2017.

Tiësto Unveils Sub-Label AFTR:HRS with Inaugural Track

One of the most long standing titans of EDM has brought a new sub-label into being that will surely spark many new creations to come. We are, of course, talking about Tiësto. Maybe you heard its inaugural track previewed by someone with close ties to the DJ, or maybe you even heard it while dancing during his set at Ultra. Either way, it’s finally built up enough critical mass to be officially shared with the world.

The new label is called AFTR:HRS and its first track comes from an unknown artist named BLR. The track, ‘Nungwi’, merges deep trop-house with elements of stadium-trap and definitely has the potential to become a summer banger if it’s received well. Over the years, Tiësto’s been known to divine what’s just beyond EDM’s consciousness and turn it into intuitive genre-blends that make every footfall of the beat oh-so-satisfying. Previously this has been accomplished with his well respected Musical Freedom label, giving rise to artists like HardwellMartin Garrix, and The Chainsmokers.  We’ll be watching closely as AFTR:HRS progresses, and see if it gives this old master of EDM the new kind of reign he’ll enjoy.

Below you’ll hear an excerpt of BBC Radio 1’s Dance Anthems, which premieres the official release of the track ‘Nungwi’ by BLR, the first official release off of Tiësto’s new label AFTR:HRS:
