Mol, Belgium (November 5, 2014)—Tiësto’s Elements of Life has been remixed for release in DTS-HD MA 5.1 and Auro-3D by Ronald Prent, chief sound engineer and co-founder of Wisseloord Studios.
Tiësto’s third studio album, Elements of Life, was Grammy-nominated for Best Electronic/Dance album during the 50th annual Grammy awards in 2008 and certified gold in numerous countries.
The album has been mixed by Prent and mastered by three-time Grammy Award-winning mastering engineer Darcy Proper. Elements of Life in DTS-HD MA 5.1 and Auro-3D will become available on Pure Audio Blu-ray (24 bit/96kHz) through Magik Muzik/Black Hole Recordings. The album will be released worldwide in December 2014.
The album contains collaborations with JES, Christian Burns, BT and Maxi Jazz of Faithless, and includes a bonus track: Tiësto remix of “He’s A Pirate,” from the original soundtrack of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
Dennis Waakop Reijers-Fraaij, the producer—with Tiësto—of Elements of Life, commented, “Finally, I could hear all the subtle details in terms of space and depth within the Auro-3D mix, which I couldn’t get from the stereo mix. Auro-3D and dance music make a fantastic combination as they are both all about the experience. Auro-3D is finally the largest step towards truly three-dimensional audio, as this is the way we experience sound in the real world. Suffice to say, I’m very much looking forward to further cooperation in the near future.”
Wilfried Van Baelen, CEO of Auro Technologies, said, “Mixing an album by such a prestigious artist as Tiësto—the number-one DJ in the world three years in a row—shows that there's a growing appreciation for the immersive 3D sound developed by Auro Technologies.”
