Avicii - Wake Me Up (Faruk Orakci Deep House Remix)
When the two-time Grammy nominated 23-year-old, Swedish Avicii unveiled a full folk band to perfor bluegrass-tinted cut "Wake Me Up” featuring Aloe Blacc at a massive Miami gig, the song was met with skepticism. But as the single raced up international pop charts and set the tone for his earnest and idealistic second album, TRUE, Avicii was vindicated.
To Simply call him a DJ, a producer, or a remixer would be a misnomer: he is actually a pop composer, commonding huge, unabashedly uplfinting melodies set to mainstream dance tracks, with a nary sample or interpolation in sight. Adam Lambert and Nile Rodergs give "Lay Me Down” a silnky ’70s vibe, destined for two-stepping platform dancing shoes around the world. Meanwhile, cameos from unexpected vocalists like Oklahoma’s Audra Mae ("Addicted to You”) and the revered bluegrass artist Dan Tyminski ("Hey Brother”) suceed in Avicii’s ambitious vision: making a viable folk-flavored EDM album.
The album was released on PRMD records, a newly established and influential dance label from Scandinavia that represents new and emerging talent from the region and beyond.
The fastest new release to #1 is receiving the remix treatment in a huge way. Italian producer EDX has taken onAvicii‘s newest hit, "Wake Me Up,” one of the many tracks first played during Avicii‘s groundbreaking set on the mainstage of Ultra Music Festival Miami. The track is an infusion of his trademark progressive style and country, with vocals from Aloe Blacc. EDX‘s recent hits include "Hazed” on PinkStar, and his collaborative remix of "Blood Pressure” with Leventina. It is a well known fact that Avicii will be releasing his debut studio album, "True,” on 13 September 2013. This is the second time that EDX has remixed an Avicii track, after he put his spin on"Silhouettes” last year.
In his remix, EDX starts the vocals over a funky drum loop, which begins to fade into the original guitar as the verse progresses. The chorus begins, and EDX begins his unique chord progression, chopping the chorus into loops, and adding percussion to build the song. The addition of pitch bends begins to tease the impending climax, and the track soon drops into the deep sound we love from EDX.
Stay tuned for the release date.
