Featuring shimmering vocals from Absolutely—who has written songs for the likes of Normani, Ty Dolla $ign and Anitta—”Waterslides” is a phenomenal jump into uncharted waters for Tiësto. Together with Rudimental, he’s crafted an upbeat anthem with a vivid soundscape painted by fluttering synths and steady percussion.
The production is a masterful showing from all involved, showcasing just how effortlessly dance genres can flow when in the skilled hands of master craftsmen.
“I’m always open to exploring new and different styles of music, and when I started closing out my festival performances earlier this year with some drum & bass tracks the fans went insane,” Tiësto said in a press release. “It was incredible experimenting with this genre and working with Rudimental and Absolutely on this one!”
Tiësto has already started 2024 off strongly after announcing a first-of-its-kind performance at Super Bowl LVIII and a high-profile Vegas DJ residency with Groot Hospitality and Tao Group. Rudimental, who have also remained a decades-long force in electronic music, also kicked off the year in a big way after dropping “Alibi” alongside Ella Henderson.
“Waterslides” is out now on Tiësto’s own Musical Freedom imprint. You can find the new track on streaming platforms here.
