Tiesto is always full of surprises. One of the most celebrated artists in all of dance music has skillfully maneuvered many transitions over the years. He started out as an icon of trance and slowly moved into the mainstream consciousness. Today he produces every genre under the sun and does so with massive success. Just last week we were in awe of his remix of J Balvin’s ‘Bum Bum Tam Tam’ and this week we have another unexpected surprise from Tijs.
Tiesto, Post Malone, Dzeko, and Preme – Jackie Chan
Tiesto was one of the first artists in dance music to experiment with rap crossovers. His single with 3 Six Mafia, ‘Feel it’, was a bit ahead of its time, and did not blow up with much popularity. But that just shows how forward-thinking Tiesto was in the late 2000’s. Now Tiesto has once again teamed up with a rapper. This time the result is downright spectacular.
‘Jackie Chan’ is a collab between Tiesto, Post Malone, Dzeko, and Preme, and is a funky little single that will surprise you in the best ways possible. It seems that this team of producers has channeled Chromeo a bit for their latest work. While the verse from Post Malone is featured heavily, Tiesto and Dzeko have masterfully kept this tune rooted in the dance paradigm. All of this helps it be something original – it isn’t just a trap beat produced by an EDM artist with a verse over it. It is something much more.
Tiesto and Post Malone – LISTEN
I went into listening to this song with every intention of not liking it, but after just a single listen I can safely say that Tiesto has defied expectations once again. In my opinion, Tiesto is producing some of his best work since his famed LP, ‘Kaleidoscope’. He has really found his stride in modern day music in 2018, and I cannot wait to hear what comes next. Check out the single below.
