Avicii + Mixtape

I haven't done a music post in ages it seems like. I had my finals this week... grrr, but on the bright side, I AM DONE and this weekend I'm heading eastward and upwards to Vegas to see one of the greatest House producers of all time... well I think so anyway. I'm talking about Avicii aka Tim Berg aka Tom Hangs aka Tim Bergling (his actual, real name), the 21 year old who reins from Sweden and has continued to drop insane tracks like rain comes out of the sky.

I don't know how he does it, but its pure eargasm every damn time. He's seriously the best thing to come out of Sweden since Ikea... and I f*cking love Ikea! I don't think a lot of my readers listen to house, but I urge you to give Avicii a listen. He self-describes his music as "big-room, melodic house." I think his emphasis on melodies really gives his music soul and really, just makes you want to dance, whether you're listening in your car or in a dark nightclub. Here are some of my favorites:

Avicii Man Man 
Avicii Swede Dreams

Avicii "ID" aka Levels

Tim Berg Before This Night is Through (Bad Things)

Avicii & Sebastian Drums My Feelings For You
Armin Van Buren Ft. Laura V Drowning (Avicii's Unnamed Mix)

Tom Hangs Ft. Shermanology Blessed (Avicii Edit)

Other songs I'm obsessed with (links are to where you can download the song):

Craft Spells . Party Talk
Sebastian Tellier . La Ritournelle (Mr. Dan's Mix)
Body Language . You Can
The Dodos . Walking
Summer Heart . Please Stay
Sonny & The Sunsets . Too Young to Burn
Calvin Harris Ft. Kelis . Bounce
Dirty South Ft. Rudy . Phazing
Familjen . Det Var Jag
Jai Paul . BTSTU
Nancy Sinatra . Sugar Town
Tyga Ft. Adele . Reminded 


  1. I like your music post and cool photos too

  2. I LOVE AVICII TOOOO! Dang it now I'm all jealous you get to see him - have fun - safe travels -

  3. No matter how hard I try i still can't get into the whole electro-house (synth sounding) scene. I guess I'm just a sucker for real instruments / hip-hop artists who use their talent. cheers

  4. Looks like we have similar taste in music! Have you seen any of these DJs live yet?

  5. @ Rita: I totally understand. It took me a while to get into the electro-house scene too - I was all about real instruments and hip-hop but I don't know... one day I just started to understand it and Avicii is a great stepping stone for getting into this type of music :)

    @ Ashley: I haven't! This will be my first time!

  6. Awesome music post!! :) Thanks for sharing!

  7. nice thanks for pointing Avicii out to me, never heard of him!

  8. ughh your music taste is DIVINE!!
