Recently fallen hard for these deep house tracks, both remixes and originals. Perfect for cold, moody, weekday commutes, these beats deliver soothing relief from crying babies, flat tires, and the rest of life’s occasional crap.
Stream this and our other mixes, days in advance, on 8tracks!
Update (9/15): With a full leak coming two days in advance, here is the official version of “You Make Me” :)
I can’t wait any longer– Quick on the curtails of the announcement of his closing set for the first night of the ever-epic Electric Zoo comes an ‘exclusive’ rip of the second single from Avicii’s forthcoming album, entitled “You Made Me”…and it’s damn good.
I felt in the air, I swear. That foreboding silence of an oncoming major record… Avicii’s “True”.
Not due ’til September 13th, the album leaked almost a month early, and can be listened to in its entirety on YouTube. The album stays the course of Avicii’s latest country twang, but brings back that familiar happy, dance-party sound we all first fell for… All in all: damn good. Available for pre-order on iTunes here.
I will absolutely be the first one to admit: I made a mistake. I barely gave this song a 5-second listen before giving it the cold shoulder when I first heard it at Ultra Miami earlier this year. But now that it’s been rehashed in the studio — most noticeably, with a strengthened bass and sped-up melody — I haven’t stopped listening to it since it’s premiere on Pete Tong’s radio show last Friday. And finally, we have a version worth releasing…
Three Sundays later, and we have the return of our column. Apologies for the delay, but two things: one, my excuse is pretty good (yea, I blame Ultra), and two, this week’s edition is awesome. I called it the We-Missed-You edition for two reasons. One, duh, I missed y’all. Two, it features a few of my favorite songs by artists we all know and love — but haven’t heard them perform in their sets in years.
My first solo foray into the EDM world, I paid my buddy $10 and saw Avicii perform an intimate set at Pacha, and when he played this first song, I nearly cried of happiness, all hyped up, alone in my own Avicii-bubble. Years later, the feeling still returns. Then there’s Jacques Lu Cont, or the Thin White Duke, who somehow kept us in our seats, jumping with this Killers track in Madison Square Garden last year when the Swedish House Mafia — now dissolved — headlined the first electronic show there. Sit back, close your eyes, and know you’re in good hands… It’s time for #SyncBackSunday.
At the beginning of last month, goldenboy superproducer Avicii announced a project in which he’d review submissions for melodies, basslines, beats, rhythms, breaks and effects to create one internationally-collaborative track. Reminiscent of the days of The Postal Service (who are, by the way, back on tour…?!), mailing recordings of vocals and effects crosscountry back in 2003 to create hits like “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight”, Avicii x You.com received nearly 13,000 submissions from 4000+ artists in 140 countries. What resulted is a happy, light, bouncy house tune that one will be sure to hear in Avicii sets. Melody, kian sang; bassline, DJ Naxsy; beat/rhythm, Martin Kupilas; break, ВАНЯ ХАКСИ; and effects, Jonathan Madray, Mateusz Kolata, and Christian Westphalen.
Avicii also recently celebrated 3 million likes on Facebook by releasing a new mix of “Your Love is So Amazing”. His video productions have been top-notch lately, so I thought I’d include it.
Update (2/07): The form for reservations is now available! Packages are available for 3, 5, 7, or 10 nights during Miami Music Week (March 15-25), starting at $550/night. Get there soon if you’re interested — rooms are going fast!
At long last, the official release for Avicii & Nicky Romero’s 2012 mega-hit, retitled “I Could Be The One”, has arrived! And with it, the best video yet from the 3rd greatest DJ world-over… Enjoy, and happy New Year!
