The Jung and the Restless

Tiësto proves that sometimes rock 'n' roll archetypes are true

But it didn't last long — for me, anyway. My trance trance faded as quickly as it set in. On my way out, I talked to Tony Rodriguez, a bloodshot, 33-year-old DJ from Miami who first saw Tiësto ten years ago at South Beach's Shadow Lounge. "Even back then, we could tell he was gonna be huge," he said, reminding me that in 2004, Tiësto played the opening ceremony at the Athens Olympics. I asked him what exactly made this guy one of the best-loved musicians on the planet. "It's the music — most of what he plays, he produced. It's his technique for blending; it's how he tries to get the feeling of everyone in the room."

To some, apparently, this Globetrotting DJ has trotted his way into a whole other reality. "Tiësto's always taken it to another level," Rodriguez gushed. "Now he's taking it to another dimension."
