After a brief stint of silence from Sweden’s hottest stadium-filling export Avicii, Pete Tong premiered a new studio endeavour amid his Essential Selection from the chart-raking producer of affirmative melodic persuasions. Not quite hitting in on the epic properties we have come to associate with this Swedish superstar, ‘Last Dance’ is as solid of an inaugural release for 2012 as the world could have hoped for. Leading a whistle-based top line through an affirmative dose of upfront keys and solid drums for Warner Music, Bergling remains as potently tied to his advanced melodic stylings as ever. While his previous exploits were always going to be a tough act to follow, ‘Last Dance’ is a promising indicator that the new material has finally started flowing for this Swede.
‘Last Dance’ is released soon via Warner Music.
Update (22/8): A preview of the vocal version is now available, as premiered on Swedish radio channel P3.
