Avicii has returned to making quite some noise in the EDM scene. Since August he has released a new EP and hosted a Beats 1 Radio takeover. Now the DJ who created some of dance music’s biggest hits has come out with the first installment of his AviciiFM Radio Show.
The Radio show, which is about an hour long, has a variety of tracks that have been trending over the past few months. Its starts off with a minute and half intro that features some of Avicii’s live performances over the past few years. Several of his tracks from his new EP ‘Avīci (01)’ are featured. The Avīci (01) tracks are intertwined with tracks by Don Diablo, EDX, 3LAU, Dombresky, and more. The radio show has a laid back and dance like quality at the same time making it the perfect choice for many listening scenarios.
Throughout the mix Avicii speaks about feedback on his new music. He states that his new track ‘Without You’ has received the most positive feedback. This isn’t a surprise as Avicii has become progressively popular with for his style of blending folk and dance music together.
What is a surprise is his contrasting use of house tracks such as Odd Mobb‘s remix of 3LAU’s ‘On My Mind’ and Boy 8-Bit‘s ‘Want You’. Avicii culminates his mix with DJ Licious‘s ‘Ses Salines’ and his very own track ‘What Would I Change It To’ featuring AlunaGeorge.
Even though Avicii has announced his retirement from performing live shows we are glad that he is still producing music. He recently took to Twitter to tell his fans that “He will never stop producing music, I will continue to speak to my fans through it“. This is only the first episode of his radio show and you should definitely be excited for more to come.
Avicii went live with his show on Saturday but you can still listen to it on his Facebook page below.
