Tiësto has one of the longest-running radio shows that electronic music has to offer with “CLUBLIFE,” and now the veteran producer, alongside his record label Musical Freedom, is launching a new mix series in honor of his new AFTR:HRS imprint. The imprint was launched alongside Tiësto’s new side project VER:WEST, and to celebrate the new mix series Tiësto as VER:WEST is the featured artist for the launch of the new series. The series is titled “AFTR:HRS Sessions,” and the monthly sessions will host 60-minute live sets from DJs and producers worldwide. The series will focus on artists and mixes that feature melodic house and techno, which is AFTR:HRS’ primary focus.
Discussing the AFTR:HRS Sessions plans, and the label’s goals over the next 12 months, Tiësto says,
“With 2021 now getting underway myself and the Musical Freedom / AFTR:HRS team wanted to give fans something to get them through the tough months ahead with the ‘AFTR:HRS Sessions.’ I would describe VER:WEST as melodic house music. It’s a lot deeper and more chill and very different energy than Tiësto and hopefully that can be showcased in the upcoming AFTR:HRS releases and artists we have the pleasure of working with. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to play in front of fans but I hope that 2021 will be the year we can all get back out there at a festival together.”
News on “AFTR:HRS Sessions” including upcoming featured artists will be announced in the coming weeks. Listen to the series’ inaugural session below.
