Tiësto has certainly been in the spirit of holiday giving this year. After rocking the concert for World AIDS Day on Dec 1 (which was livestreamed), he’s dropped a compilation to match, Dance (RED), Save Lives. The comp is available only in digital format and is apparently making a huge impact with little promotion. It’s now dominating Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart, climbing over recent classics like Skrillex‘s Bangarang EP and Calvin Harris‘ 18 Months.
The album is available for $8, with every “red” cent of proceeds going to the Global Fund for AIDS research, and with contributing artists like Afrojack, Infected Mushroom, Major Lazer and Hardwell, there’s something for every EDM fan. So get festive, get down, and give a holiday gift you can be proud of!
The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
