Being progressive house music’s most acclaimed break-through artist lately and the creator of 2011’s hugely successful leak, Levels, Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, Tim Berg or Tom Hangs, has literally become a superstar of great measures, also inspiring young producers from across the globe. Although some may consider him disrupting dance music promptly and thoroughly with last year’s release of Bromance, followed by the lyricized Seek Bromance, the truth is: the mastermind of commercial, dance-friendly synth leads has had success coming since 2008. The towing of large amounts of well-polished offerings out and onto blogs since his early years quickly made him stand out as an impelling and captivating force. However, breaking through arguably and officially with the 2010 anthem, Avicii, his hard-working management and the complete music scene, have all witnessed the inevitably significant rise of our Swedish native.
With a wealthy roster of tracks, including Blessed, Fade Into Darkness, Sunshine and the yet to be released Levels, propelling himself through 2011, Bergling invites the legendary Future Music Magazine to document and review an hour-long studio session to find out the essence behind the success of the hit-maker. Not only is he telling and showing us his favorite arrangements, arpeggio’s, hooks, plug-ins and providing a few tips on how to optimize and arrange the instrumentals to its fullest in creation of a full-on anthem, but the entire studio session boasts the production of the unheard Dancing In My Head from Avicii, starring the amazing voice of the Boston-bred Eric Turner – the singer / songwriter mainly recognized from his work on Written In The Stars with Tinie Tempah. And from the looks and listens of it, I’d say we have got another smash on our hands..!
