Avicii played main stage at this year’s Ultra Music Festival and through down a contreversial set debuting tracks off his new album. He collaborated with artists such as country star Mac Davis, bluegrass musician Dan Tyminski, singer Audra Mae, soul artist Aloe Blacc, Incubus guitarists Mike Einziger and Ben Kenney. His set got critsized for having too much of a country and live influence. The live instrumentation may have been a little to overwhelming for the DJ mold seen at Ultra. The funniest part is that people hated on Avicii when he would played “Levels” non stop and other typical house tracks, and now hate on the guy for stepping outside of the box and bringing in live instrumentation to house music.
He just let loose “Promo Mix 2013″ featuring a lot of the tracks he debuted at his live set. The mix basically sounds the Avicii you know with some adiditonal live elements. It spans from progressive house to some gritty electro action. Loving what I have heard so far. Listen and let us know what you think? Enjoy!
Avicii – Promo Mix 2013
Diplo has brought out quite the variety of his friend DJ’s to do guest mixes for his weekly Diplo & Friends Radio Show, yet I don’t think anyone saw this coming. He shockingly brought Swedish superstar Avicii, which Diplo hilariously reassures us how he is indeed friends with Avicii in the mix. Do not worry as the mix starts with 10 minutes of non electronic throw back tracks that might throw some of you off, trust that this is easily one of the best guest mixes we have heard in awhile. The mix quickly progresses to a fitting D.A.N.C.E. by Justice and Eric Prydz throwback. He then moves through a fantastic mix of refreshing disco and unexcepted tracks. He even includes original song from Etta James sampled in Levels. It makes sense that he would showcase his abilities as a DJ and stray away from his typical succescingle progressive house singles. This mix really grounds him as a DJ and shows that he is still very much tapped into the underground, and not a sold out commercial DJ despite his quick rise to worldwide fame. Sit back and really peek into this mix and see a different side of Avicii. Enjoy!

Avicii recruits Mike Posner for vocals on his latest house anthem. It’s got an older Avicii feel filled to the brim with uplifting piano lines. Some might get a little turned off by Mike’s vocals, but they do work with the overly poppy house track. I could really see this track being Avicii’s true first North American radio single. What do you think? Are you feeling it? Enjoy the preview taken from his Creamfields set below. Overline extended the preview to let you enjoy it a little bit more. Stay tuned for official track name, release details, etc. Enjoy!

Avicii has doen a little bit more then make a name for himself in electronic music throughout the past year. He just hit 2 million fans and is giving this track away to his fans as a gift for all their support. It’s a harder more dark sounding track then the typical Avicii track, reminding me a little bit of Deadmau5 or Afrojack. Turn up the bass, enjoy!
