Swedish superstar DJ and producer, Avicii, releases his latest single this week. Not quite new, since the original backing track by the man himself leaked around a year ago. But he’s finally presented the finished official radio edit of it. ‘Levels’.
Even if you haven’t frequented an actual club all year, you’ll still probably be familiar with this track. It’s been the subject of television syncs, radio began playing it premature to its release, and despite the fact that it’s only officially come out this week, it’s actually already been sampled! Flo-Rida samples ‘Levels’ (which itself samples ‘Something’s Gotta Hold On Me’ by Etta James) on his track ‘Good Feeling’. So yes, as dance tracks go, it’s been pretty much inescapable all year.
He might have left it too long for it to be enough of a hit to rival ‘Seek Bromance’ in the chart stakes, but regardless of what sales or chart positions are to come in the following weeks, this is already one of the biggest dance tunes of 2011 around the world.
And we still love it!
