Tiësto puts his spin on Passion Pit’s track + a trippy video to boost the effort

Tiësto put a new tune out there. It's not an original, but it doesn't lack orginality. The Dutch trance and progressive head put his spin on Passion Pit's lovely tune 'Carried Away'. He held back on the raw electro house vibe he's put into his productions lately. So the overall feel goes nicely with original, the track's just become dance-floor friendly as he's added some big room chords and dance elements. The video is a really cool one as well – who wouldn't like to jump out of their body's to form 5 clones in a heartbeat?
