Avicii tries mixing country music with EDM....and TOTALLY SUCCEEDS!


I know there are a few -- or at least one -- Avicii haters on this board. And that's kool and the gang. I mean, to each their own. But I think even the Avicii haters will have to toss out some props on his latest offering.*

DISCLAIMER: I've only heard this one track, and so I don't know how many more of these EDM-country tracks he's done or how good they are. But, as I see it, he just drained his first jumpshot.

Avicii - Wake Me Up

I just listened to the track as you requested BR. I have no issues with Avicii and enjoy some of his stuff. But a dressed up terd is still a terd.

There is something very wrong with that. Because country fricking blows.

To me, it doesn't sound like the country I would hear if I were to turn on a country radio station this very second.* It just sounds like awesomeness.


*If it sounded like Kenny Chesney and I posted it, I would kick my own ass.
**To be clear, if I turned on a country radio station, I would kick my own arse even harder.

A bit old now, but I love the track.

Been blasting it in my car for a few weeks now.

Why even bother posting?

Somewhere in a web server right now there are electrons being forced against their will to store the 0 and 1 values that represent your post.

Perfectly good electrons. Enslaved.

Easy, hipsterface, it's been out less than a month. Nobody who isn't presently wearing an ironic t-shirt refers to a song released on June 25th as "a bit old now".

They play it all the time on bpm xm. It's ok. I usually switch over to area when it comes on.

I'd be interested to see who mixes this into their sets and how.

How was that "country"?

Sounded like a EDM version of Mumford and sons.

his tim berg stuff is amazing, i was so pissed he only played one track during his set, the rest was the new stuff he is trying and no one is feeling it. This track is actually really old he debuted it at Ultra Miami where he got promptly booed
