How Tiesto’s ‘White Lotus’ Remix Moved the Series to the Dance Floor


The influence of the ‘Renaissance’, the main title theme of the second season ofWhite Lotus” is felt far beyond the screen. Since the season premiered in Fall 2022, “Renaissance” has moved the Killers into action as soon as they hit the stage, and Dominic Fike has closed sets with him. But where the song really hits is the dance floor.

Grammy award-winning DJ/producer Tiësto, who is a huge fan of the series, started to include the series in his sets towards the end of 2022. The “Renaissance” remix has been officially released with the approval of HBO.

Chilean Canadian composer for the second season Cristobal Tapia de Veer got his original musical ideas from the script and conversations with the show’s creator Mike White. Of his studio in Montréal, de Veer says White “wanted the music to feel like it was boiling under these characters.”

He re-imagined the borderline dangerous original theme music through a piano as calm and romantic, keeping the tension at its core as it rises to a dancefloor-ready techno beat.

The renamed “Renaissance” theme plays with the opening credits once against the wallpaper – only evoking 16th-century Italy rather than an island setting in its time.

The remix features Tiësto’s signature fluttering structures and tension-releasing drops while retaining the infectious nature of the source material. “I wanted to create something that highlights the beauty of the original piece but takes it to another level in terms of energy for the dance floor or the festival main stage. The original song is already incredible on its own, but it needed some extra Tiësto spice for my sets,” he says. Variation.

Tiësto’s “Renaissance” remix is ​​the only official remix ever. But those who made their own bootlegs of the song include Diplo, Sofi Tukker, Flux Pavilion, Westend, Enamour, Will Sass and Shouse. Smart money is making at least a few of these “Renaissance” remixes more legit.
