    Story behind DJ TiŽsto's 'Theme from Norefjell'?

    Hey,

    This might be a bit of an odd inquiry, but a track of DJ TiŽsto's, his 'Theme from Norefjell' - and the subsequent Magikal Remake and DJ Jan & Christophe Chantzis Remix - what is Norefjell and the story behind Tiesto making a thematic track for Norefjell? To my understanding Norefjell is a skiing resort/center in Norway, but I've also heard of a TV show maybe, and that makes sense to have a theme, I guess. I am just wondering, odd inquiry I know.

    Thank you.

    From Wiki: Norefjell is a Norwegian mountain range in the Scandes Mountains system. It stretches between the valleys Eggedal (west) and Hallingdal (east) in Norway. It covers parts of the municipalities FlŚ, Sigdal, and KrÝdsherad, all in the county Buskerud.

    He might just like the place

    Pretty sure its not a theme. Its one of 'his' earlier works when he wasnt all that big, yet.

    Probably back from a time when his inspiration came from beautiful places, such as mountain ranges he visited. I wonder where his inspiration comes from now...

    Actually, Tiesto played quite alot of gigs in Norway in 98-01. One of The most famous are his set from a event called Hyperstate. Some might say that he got his breakthrough around this time and was big in especially Norway. So i guess the track is a kind of a tribute. Also, he has several times expressed his fondness of The nordics. He got a apartment in Stockholm.

    OK so I just checked, and he does NOT have a wife.

    In all seriousness this answers a lot for me. This is what happened - "Sell yourself/scrap your integrity, and you WILL become huge superstar, feasting on and FUCKING THE FINEST WOMEN whenever you want, until your old and your dick doesn't work. This is FOR SURE the number 1 reason for him going the direction he has.

    Could you seriously resist that offer? At the end of the day, he has all the money he needs. High grade pussy > Money > Integrity. I mean...hes coming up to 50 and gets to pillage the shit out of girls in their prime. He is living THE DREAM. I completely understand now...

    TiŽsto was booked for several gigs here in Norway in the period 98-2000. One of these places where Norefjell; a Norwegian ski resort. As far as I know, TiŽsto was so impressed by the Norwegian mountains and scenery (as they really lack those in NL), so he made Theme From Norefjell, as a tribute.
    The fact that he was pretty popular in Norway, might have been a reason for his success in the rest of Europe as well.
    "Who's this dutch guy? Why is he so popular in Norway??"
