Tiësto returns to the Essential Mix after long-standing hiatus

Last night on BBC Radio 1 Tiësto made his triumphant return to the Essential Mix airwaves. Following his 2006 appearance on Tong’s iconic show, the Dutch dance kingpin and Musical Freedom figurehead spent 8-years in Essential Mix silence until he returned last night with a special After Hours Edition for the world’s most important mix show. Even with a career as lauded as his, Tiësto’s return came to make a statement — one that comes immediately and without hesitation. Casting itself into the deep with Tube & Berger’s “Come On Now (Set It Off),” Tijs signals a sharp sea change in what we’ve come to expect from the mainstage’s greatest advocate. From there the track selection continues on it’s unorthodox but deeply engaging path. The little known Parra For Cuva feat. Anna Naklab version of “Wicked Games” makes an appearance, as well as, SoloWg’s “L.O.V.E.,” Funkerman’s “Age of Love” and a throwback to one of the most remixed songs of the early EDM boom – Imogen Heap’s “Hide & Seek” as redone by Maze & Masters. House focused and deeply groovy for nearly the first hour and a half, Tiësto brings some tasteful club energy back into the mix as he closes out, showcasing Matt Goldman & Gazzo’s “Six Point Five” and bookending his return with Oliver Helden’s “Gecko.” For any Tiësto doubter, the king’s return to Essential Mix form comes complete with a muzzle for his critics.
