What makes Avicii, 24-year-old Swedish DJ/remixer/producer, a mad genius is he is so much more than than all of this. He’s also a composer, innovator, and has one of the best ears in the business IMHO. Avicii is a huge fan of melody and thinks outside the box. He took a big risk and did what no EDM artist has ever done before. Avicii injected soul and organic instruments into house music on his latest album ‘True’ that dropped this week. He’s revolutionizing the EDM scene and taking it main stream. He’s mashing up genres no one else thought to combine like on the worldwide smash “Wake Me Up” where he mixes Aloe Blacc’s soulful voice with a folk band and house beats.

I’m calling it now just wait y’all. Avicii’s album ‘True’ is going to be one of the biggest if not the biggest album in the next 12 months! It’s full of singles. It’s hard for me to pick just one so go listen to the entire album. I’m going to leave you with this single “Hey Brother” featuring Dan Tyminski, a bluegrass artist that is a member of the band Alison Krauss and Union Station.
