Tiësto: “It’s really amazing to see this picture again. It was after this that things really took off. I often think back to that old club and what a special time it was to break through. Now I feel like I’m at the top of my career, but here I am 17 years younger – an age when you really feel abyss and pleasure. I wanted to work all the time and everywhere. Of course I had no Idea of what was ahead of me back then. Every week, every day something happened that made me think here’s another step forward”

“It really is a very cool picture, except I was still smoking then. I quit when I was 30, I used to smoke those packs a day, but it made me so sick. I haven’t smoked for years, but if it wasn’t so unhealthy I’d start again right away”
