Tiësto honored with Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to EDM

Posted at March 5th, 2016 | by Sarangh | in

If there is one man whose contribution to the electronic dance music scene is invaluable, it certainly is this man. Tijs Michiel Verwest better known by his stage name Tiësto, has devoted over 20 years of his life to this industry and he has stuck around ever since his early days right at the top. He has proved to be one of those few artists who acclimates to the gradual revolution and the evolution of electronic dance music. After all the meticulous work behind the studio and bringing the entire essence of trance music to the spotlight throughout the late 90s and early 00s, and also being the first DJ to ever perform at the Olympics, the Dutch DJ/Producer has now added yet another milestone to his name.

The 47-year-old Dutchman has been officially proclaimed as the next winner of the prestigious Edison Award, an award specifically given only to those who truly deserve it for their progressive contributions to the electronic dance music industry. Tiësto will be the first ever electronic DJ/Producer to receive this honour, and nobody can deny the fact that he definitely deserves this, beyond any doubt.

Here’s what the judging panel had to say about this legend’s win:

“‘He does not stick to a winning formula that guarantees commercial success, but looks to the boundaries of the musical spectrum and challenges them through special collaborations.”

Tiësto would always be one of those producers who is revered by all the other people in the electronic dance music scene and not to mention he has also turned out to be the inspiration to many young and upcoming DJs and producers in the electronic dance music community.
