REVIEW: Tiësto feat. Bright Sparks - On My Way out on Musical Freedom / PM:AM Recordings / Universal

Grammy Award-winning DJ/producer Tiësto released his new single, “On My Way,” featuring the exciting up-and-coming vocalist duo, Bright Sparks. The song is available now via digital retailers and streaming platforms, http://tiesto.lnk.to/onmyway.

“On My Way” is Tiësto’s first official single of 2017. The song, which makes use of flames imagery to suggest a cycle of rebirth and reinvention, serves as an anthem for anyone ready to seize the opportunity presented by a new year. Coupled with the track’s melody and simple message of following your dreams regardless of naysayers, Tiësto’s new release celebrates the individuals that stay true to themselves in pursuit of their ambitions.

The release of this new single marks an important moment in Tiësto’s career and will kick off an event-filled weekend for the dance music icon. Tomorrow night, Jan. 14th, Tiësto will celebrate his birthday with a special performance at Hakkasan Nightclub in Las Vegas. Earlier that day, Tiësto will be honored with a ceremony inside MGM Grand’s lobby, where he will be presented the Key to the Las Vegas Strip. County Commissioner Steve Sisolak will present the artist with the highly-coveted key and proclaim Jan. 14 as “Tiësto Day” in recognition of his dedication and success as an artist and his support of the City of Las Vegas.

This is only the beginning of what promises to be an exciting 2017 for Tiësto. He will continue touring worldwide, with 2 sold-out performances at Brooklyn Hangar on Feb 24th and Feb 25th, which mark the DJ’s first shows in the borough. With new videos and music releases in the pipeline, Tiësto fans have much to look forward to.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]On My Way is the brand new single by the superstar DJ and producer Tiësto that features Bright Sparks. The track is simply magnificent feel good euphoric deep house at its best. Sparkling grooves, organic drum programming, summery guitar riffs, dreamy strings, and of course excellent mouthwatering trumpet riffs in the drop that remind you Kungs style and bring that happy atmosphere with its irresistible rhythm. The vocal is memorable with lyrics that you can easily digest with the word radio pop anthem written all over it. When winter days look darker and a ray of sunlight appears behind the clouds certainly you feel like playing On My Way on repeat mode. #PureGold Love IT[/content]
