Contact beatport and have the track taken down. If what the guy says is true then he has the producer original file.
Why is this even an issue? File a copyright claim, and the issue is over. If Asalto doesn't have a copyright on the track, he's kind of screwed anyway.
I just bought it, couldnt find it anywhere else. Awesome track!

Oh God this pretty much EXACT situation happened like, 2002 also I think with a Trance song. It still gets sampled today, I forgot the name of it, but basically some guy on a Mp3 site uploaded the same song and it went to #1 for ages. Was un-real but, I think with the way things are today, with 15 year olds chucking random loops over all ready made EDM songs and shit and calling it a "mash up" then putting it on Sound Cloud it's bound to happen. Especially when we have things like Sample Packs that are royalty free. All someone has to do is make a sample from that pack the main feature of their song then pretty much everyone else who has legally paid for that sample and uses it would be seen as 'copying' in the eyes of that producer. It's all ridiculous.
Tiesto - adagio for strings. Was released without no mention of Barber on the sleeve.
No here I think it was. I remember seeing a few places it was called like "Tiesto- Barber Adagio For Strings" Maybe not officially though?
Ummm, whats the name of that PPK song? Thats the one I'm thinking of but I can't remember the name?
There are exactly two things to do:
1. Sue the guy.
2. Try to get a preliminary injunction to get the song out of the stores before the final court decision.
Now if you listen to Tiesto's version here, you will see that it's not so much different from the William Orbit version. Only that William Orbit released his track in 1999 whereas Tiesto's version didn't come out until 2004...
So basically, William Orbit made a coverversion of Barber's composition and made the origin of the main theme transparent in the title of his track.
5 years later Tiesto turned that same classical song that had already been made into a trance song into another trance song which happens to sound not too different from the first trance song without mentioning the composer of the orignial theme or the first trance song. On a scale of 1-10, Tiesto's level of creativity and originality for this song would be, let's see... - minus 11...
