    A Town Called “Ghostwriter” This will be a two part review:1. First off a little reality for those who do not know any better. Tiesto is not a producer and this is not his music despite his name being on it. Go anywhere online, specifically Youtube and type “Tiesto in Studio” and you will come up with zero results, then type “Future Music Studio” and you will see who the real producers in the EDM industry are, once again Tiesto is nowhere to be found. You will NEVER find any resources online of Tiesto in a studio making music and deciphering the process like you do with so many other artists which I will not name because I do not want to sound bias and lose credibility for this review, but its easy to see. Google the name Dennis Waakop Reijers and specifically a Beatport article on him and you will see who the real Tiesto is or at least the producer behind the music dating back all the way to the late 90’s. In other words Tiesto never created his own music, not back then and not now. Tiesto is a great DJ and puts on great shows, but he puts his face and name behind music that isn’t his. Don’t take my word for it though, do your own research and find out for yourself. He travels the world in a jet, plays shows on a nightly basis, collects millions by pushing buttons, waiving his hands in the air and putting on a smile. Why is he smiling? Because he is laughing at the way people have bought into his brand and how he has fooled the naive masses into his system and believing that he is bigger than what he really is. Tiesto is a business for example just like Apple, and like Apple he doesn’t make his own products (music) Apple is a product built by many components, these components consist of Hitachi hard drives and Samsung memory cards for example but Apple in itself is a “Brand” not a manufacturer. Tiesto is also a brand, not a Manufacturer. He is a DJ but also a brand name business consisting of many components which include his own manufacturer (Producer Dennis Waakop Reijers) to make his music, his pilots, his advertisers, his social media geeks, etc. It’s a business consisting of many components (people) that is beyond just making music and Djing. Of course this contributes to his massive success as no single man can do it all by himself and obtain the status and success Tiesto has reached and sustained for so many years. In order to remain successful it is ALWAYS about adapting to current trends and styles in order to remain relevant and not go into obscurity as so many others have but at the same time this “almost” always involves selling yourself out as so may Tiesto fans would agree he has done. Others have stuck to their own genres and remained true despite not being as popular and technically have won more awards but for Tiesto it’s strictly about milking the cash cow and stacking those Benjamins and he has used Ghostwriting as a vehicle to obtain success and reach into your pockets and now others are following in his footsteps to the point where we have Ghostwriting companies willing to produce tracks for you and stamp your name on it! Ladies and Gentlemen this is the state of the current EDM industry. This was a rude awakening for me when I first realized this. I wanted to see how he made his music. I followed him all the way back to his Space Age and Magik series when he played Trance, I even purchased his Just Be and in My Memory limited edition Vinyl collection and had them personally signed by him. I even purchased his Another day at the office DVD and his Tiesto in concert DVD’s, I was a huge fan and supporter. In another day at the office you catch a minor glimpse of his studio and see the person who works on his tracks, i believe this might even be Dennis. But that’s the only glimpse you get. When I found this out I was highly disappointed, like when you find out that Santa Claus and the Tooth fairy do not really exist and that they are fake or that Superman doesn’t really fly. You feel deflated and realize that your Hero is nothing but a con-artist. You have been duped and fooled while they are laughing all the way to the bank!2. As for the album, Daft Punk said it best in a Rolling Stone article that the EDM industry is not evolving musically and is in its comfort zone. As a fan this could be a state of diminishing returns as everything sounds the same and everyone is trying to sound and copy each others style. I remember when Deadmau5 first came out everyone was astonished and attracted to his beats precisely because he sounded so different than anyone else at that time. His sound was polished and sonically superior to anything else but of course it was only a matter of time before others started copying his samples and therefore his style and incorporating them into their music and calling it their own.A town called paradise is a pop dance album reminiscent of everything else that is out there right now. It doesn’t push any boundaries and at times you might even get the feeling that you are…
