If you want to remain still--at your desk, at your job, in your car--then stay away from Pendulum. Errant shards of synthetic sounds whiz past your head as the mechanical pulse of drum 'n' bass collides with the sensual weightlessness of the female voice, and the processed beats move steadily forward. It's a continuous current of erotic poetry revealing a futurescape of robotic, ecstatic sound.
Dutch deity DJ Tiesto has mastered taking dancefloors on fantastic journeys through prolonged breakdowns and fantasy-filled electronic melodies--so much so, arenas sell out left and right even when he's solo on the bill. Though he started out playing unabashedly anthemic trance tunes, Tiesto has grown into spinning and producing a blend of upfront trance and progressive house that keep fans salivating.
