The hottest lad on the block who is only 22 is coming to Dublin
Avicii’s most notable song has been the single “Levels” which was released officially 28 Oct 2011. The song had already been a major hit in the EDM world all through 2011 but after its official release it became a huge mainstream hit giving Avicii and the EDM movement even greater notoriety. The song was written by Avicii, Ash Pournouri, and an unidentified third party, and contains a vocal sample from the 1962 gospel-inspired “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” by Etta James. The same vocal sample was used first by Pretty Lights in his song “Finally Moving” in 2006. This sample was also used by Flo Rida in his single “Good Feeling”. This song has been remixed by several artists, the most popular were made by Skrillex, Cazzette and Noise inc.

As MTV news wrote, following his mesmerizing stage time with the pop legend;
“Swedish house music producer Avicii is currently one of the most popular artists working in music — yes, in music, not just his native EDM. And that star standing was only reinforced on Saturday night when he headlined a gig on day two of this year’s Ultra Music Festival”
