EDM CHARTS’ OFFICIAL REVIEW: TIESTO | CLUB LIFE VOLUME TWO MIAMI [MUSICAL FREEDOM]
It really doesn’t get much bigger in EDM than Tiësto. He’s been doing it for years and knows what it takes to make an impression on his fan base. The recently released compilation “Club Life Volume Two Miami” is a grand slam. The mixture of artists and exclusive remixes make it a great follow up to “Volume One Las Vegas”. This album easily rivals some of the other great compilations out there such as Anjunabeats and Tooolroom Records.
Below is a preview of the top 5 tracks from the new release:
This is arguably the best track on the album. The remix by Tiësto and Hardwell is amazing to the say the least. The Naked and Famous are an indie rock band out of New Zealand, and the original song itself is catchy in its own right. The remix speeds up the track and adds filtering to the vocals. The build is eye catching as it crescendos into a pounding bass line, which is definitely Hardwell’s influence on the track.
“We Own the Night” easily is the most club friendly track on the album. It is slightly on the verge of being “poppy”, yet it maintains its electro house elements thanks to Wolfgang Gartner. Songbird Luciana brings her gritty vocal influence to the track, giving it sultry and sexy feel.
British progressive house duo Third Party elegantly pull of this track. “What Can We Do” is full of soul and passion, and the instrumental perfectly blends with the vocals.Anastacia’s vocals are deep and impressive. It is one of those tracks that Tiësto cleverly procured on the compilation to complement his style.
The mega hit by Coldplay “Paradise” gets a makeover from Tiësto. We’ve all heard the Fedde Le Grand Remix but the Tiësto version has lighter more airy feel to it. Throughout there are ladder builds and strong push on the synths. It has a unique vibe, and you really couldn’t have a great compilation without some presence of the Coldplay hit.
“Chasing Summers” was one of the first tracks leaked from the recently released album a couple months ago. It is Tiësto at his best, pumping out an energetic instrumental single. It has somewhat of a dark feel to it, with a deep pounding bass line that is contorted over some heavenly synths. It is somewhat of Tiësto meets Markus Schulz, in an odd way.
