I remember back in March when Avicii first released a short sample of a track he was working on called “ID”. When I first heard it I was obsessed and new it had the potential to be an absolute banger. This week Avicii has released a further edited version of what was known as “ID” and personally I think it has the best electronic riff of the year so far. Just an unbelievable song that will have you jumping like no other, even though I think he could improve the vocals which are also featured in a Pretty Lights tune. Avicii is the frontrunner in the electronic music world and tracks like this one just keep reinforcing that. If anyone out there ever has the opportunity to see Avicii live, I highly highly HIGHLY recommend it. Enjoy.
Avicii was by far the best live show I have ever attended. The kid is unbelievable. He went on around 2 am and left around 4, but for those 2 and a half hours between a crazy light show, awesome fog machines, hot ass girls dancing left and right, drinks and drugs flowing, and an amazing set by Avicii, I had died and gone to heaven. 2011 was a huge year for Avicii and now with the drop of “Levels” the future is looking even brighter for this young Swede. The best tracks he played which really got people going were of course his huge hit “My Feelings For You” as well as an ode to the great SHM and Laidback Luke with “Leave The World Behind”. If anyone ever has the opportunity to see Avicii anywhere in the world, don’t even hesitate for a second to buy a ticket. House music at its best. My one complaint was the insane number of guidos at Pacha. Not Avicii’s fault though, those fuckers travel in packs.
