Has Tiesto been over-exposed since he won last year's top billing? Or is he just beginning to reach out into the world of popular music? Only time will tell with this, in our opinion, up-and-comer. Tiesto has a lot to prove to gain the respect of many in our Forum.

Says Tiesto of his recent success: "Last year when I got voted No.1 I noticed that a lot of club promotors took me more seriously, and people from the business and other DJs took me much more seriously ... I got a lot of better jobs as a DJ and a lot of good remix offers and everything, so it's been a phenomenal year for me."
