Tiesto was born on 17 January, 1969 in Breda, the Netherlands. He used about a dozen of nicknames such as Da Joker, Drumfire, Handover, Cirdcuit, Paradise in Dubs, Passenger, Rose, Steve Forte Rio, Stray Dog, Tom Ace, Wild Bunch, DJ Tiesto, Allure.
In 2001 it was decided to remove “DJ” label from his name and became just Tiesto, one of the most famous DJ names ever.


Starting the young career Tiesto founded some short-term labels (from 1994 to 1997), such as Noculan, Basic Beat and Lightning.
However the global fame shined on him when he founded Black Hole Records in 1997, where he released the BHR label’s CD Series: “Magik” and “In Search of Sunrise”.
In 2001 Tiësto realized the first solo album called “My Memory” which was famous with mixing of original compositions and club anthems. This album had more commercial fare. The following year found his catalog expanding with the release of the third installment of his hypnotically elegant, Ibiza-influenced, and aptly named mix compilation entitled In Search of Sunrise. Just Be followed in 2004, as did Parade of the Athletes, which served as the soundtrack to the opening ceremony of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. By the time Elements of Life appeared in 2007, Tiësto had added rock and pop music to his repertoire. Released in 2009, Kaleidoscope included a rangy guest list, running from Sigur Rós vocalist Jónsi to pop singer Nelly Furtado. A year later, Magikal Journey: The Hits Collection 1998-2008 rounded up some career highlights, while 2011 saw the launch of a new city-based mix series when Club Life, Vol. 1: Las Vegas hit the shelves. Club Life, Vol. 2: Miami followed a year later, featuring Tiësto’s remixes of Coldplay (“Paradise“) and Gotye (“Somebody That I Used to Know“).


It’s difficult to imagine that a 24-hour busy musician can sleep, let alone relationships. However, in 2006 Tiesto was in relationship with Dutch model Monique Spronk. Gossips say that in 2008 he cancelled his wedding with his girlfriend Stacey Blokzijl which was planned in Colombia. The reason for cancelling the wedding was the busy schedule and short time for preliminary preparations. It’s supposed that in 2009 this relationship was broken off because of delays to their wedding.
