Swedish House Mafia Feat. John Martin – Don’t You Worry Child

If you made it to the end CONGRATS! This list represents not only how Tiesto’s style changed but how dance music evolved in general. We can feel that it was more flowy and groovy before ~ 10 years and now it is all about that bass.. wait what? no, drop. Good thing we didn’t dropped that Darude – Sandstorm joke, even though, it is a really good tune!
