Tiësto Does Shuffle Dance Video for ‘Grapevine’

The latest Tiësto single “Grapevine” has a brand new music video about people shuffle dancing and other stuff is flashing by too.

Last October Tiësto, aka Tijs Michiel Verwest, released “Grapevine” a rousing progressive house track that samples Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” circa 1968. Now there is an official video that includes shuffle dancing and a lot of random video clips.

I’m just about to lose my mind…” intones Gaye again and again over Tiësto’s prog house beat.

The project was directed and animated by Thomas Dutton. It includes original shuffle dancing routines as well as creative commons footage from the Public Domain Project by Pond5 and NASA Image and Video Library. It’s a simple yet rousing idea for a dance video.

The “highly anticipated banger” is getting mad props from shuffle dancing enthusiasts across the globe, including Instagram famous dog Ghost the Samoyed seen below.

Shuffle dancing is as popular as ever at EDM festivals and warehouse raves alike. Don Diablo recently shuffle danced with his girlfriend in a music video. And Steve Aoki has been sharing shuffle dance routines to his music on his official social media accounts.

Tiësto will play select US dates this winter, including Omnia Las Vegas on January 19, Shaq’s Fun House in Atlanta, Georgia on February 1, and Hakkasan Las Vegas on February 2, 2019. He will spend the spring and summer on a world tour. Peep the tour schedule.

Stream and/or download “Grapevine” by Tiësto via Musical Freedom Records from your music provider of choice.
