Avicii breathes new air and power into the continued ascension of his most prominent anthem to date – Levels. Named the next “Bromance” as early as late 2010 after making its debut and prime-time appearance in the Swedish prodigy’s Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, but frankly, his break-through single doesn’t even come close to competing with the gem that has been crowned by the likes of an everlasting string of top-class DJ’s and even been acknowledged as an essential “life-safer” lately. Despite the fact that many producers consider a leak of a tune bad, our fellow tunesmith based out of Stockholm reckoned otherwise after witnessing his live set-adapted mash-up with the almighty vocals of Etta James’ ‘Something’s Got A Hold On’ go viral in cyberspace to be played by the likes of literally all major and minor DJ’s across the globe and line up an overawing 16 million plays on YouTube.
Clearly driven by the rapturing and now world renowned synth leads which, even though they may not feature any shape or form of vocals, will catch you crooning the chord progression of complete perfection in no-time. Having had a year, jam packed with an abundance of success and fame, such acclaimed releases as Fade Into Darkness, Sunshine, Sweet Dreams, Blessed and the remix on Drowning, the unstoppable march of Levels continues as it at last sees its official release through Avicii’s recently launched sublabel of Ministry Of Sound, LE7ELS, backed by Universal Music. And despite its widely known leak, this year’s unquestionable hit single is certain to storm the global charts as of now, fuelled by a surpassing melody, distinct euphoria and an outstanding ability of getting people to wanna move.
