Tiesto joins the high profile ranks in DJ Hero 2

It is apparent that Activision is pulling out all the stops when it comes to their scratch and slide sequel Dj Hero 2 as they have added yet another big name to the game’s roster. The trance superstar Tiesto — the only DJ to ever play the opening ceremonies for the Summer Olympics — has been added to the swelling list of huge names.

“DJ Hero 2 is all about bringing people of different backgrounds, ages and music tastes together to have some fun DJ’ing their favorite music. The way the music comes together is fresh and unique and as a DJ, I couldn’t ask for more than that,” Tiesto explained in today’s announcement. “I am excited to be involved with this medium and to be contributing to a great game with an amazing soundtrack.”

With the addition of Tiesto we’re getting a nice range of some slightly older and more seasoned DJ’s as well as the fresher and more recent blood from the likes of Deadmau5. It’s also clear that there is a shift more towards the Electronic side of the DJ’ing scene as apposed to the previous installment which leaned more to the side of Hip-Hop.
