If you were expecting traditional Avicii EMD, think again! The DJ sensation’s newest single featuring Aloe Blacc is a genre-smashing blend of electro, folk and soul for a summertime dance party like never before! Take a listen and check out my full review!
The Swedish DJ collaborates a ground-breaking track with soulful R&B singer, Aloe Blacc, and alt-rock guitarist and co-songwriter, Mike Einziger of Incubus. The result is an unprecedented genre-blend of harmonizing electronica, folk, soul, and rock with influences of country/bluegrass uniquely filtered between.
From the opening acoustic guitar through the Avicii-esque dance beat, “Wake Me Up” is summer pop smash for the masses. The first single off the Swedish DJ’s forthcoming album offers the perfect portions of electro, folk and soul, appealing to fans of both Mumford and Sons and house DJ’s.
Tim Bergling, the world renowned DJ, producer, and innovator behind Avicii, tweeted the following message yesterday- “#WakeMeUp with @MichaelEinziger @aloeblacc is crossing borders and genres globally! Happy to see it be received with open arms by the world!”
There is no doubt Avicii is pioneering a new era of EDM, bridging the gap between diverse styles and introducing an exciting new genre into the world of music.
