Avicii has teamed up with PlayStation for a new 'rhythmic space pilot game', named 'Invector', which puts the player in the cockpit of a futuristic craft, with the task of flying down gravity defying tracks and through various symbols that correlate to different beat variations, thus creating music as they make progress.
Avicii launched a remix competition for ‘Without You’ featuring Sandro Cavazza last month (August).
The winners see their submission officially released via Geffen and featured on the DJcity blog. They also receive a $5,000 ($US) cash prize.
The two winners have now been announced as French producer Notre Dame and Japanese producer Tokima Tokio. You can hear their submissions below.
Swedish EDM star Avicii has shared the video for his track 'Lonely Together', which features Rita Ora on vocals.
The five-track EP, 'AVĪCI’, is the first piece of music from the Swedish DJ and producer since he decided to retire from performing live.
The EP features collaborations with AlunaGeorge ('What Would I Change It To’), Billy Raffoul (‘You Be Love’) and Vargas & Lagola (‘Friend Of Mine’), as well as Sandro Cavazza, who contributed vocals to the release’s first single ‘Without You’.
Avicii’s much-anticipated ‘True Stories’ documentary will debut at select theatres worldwide on 26th October. The showings will be followed by a 30-minute concert film of Avicii’s 26th August (2016) Ibiza set, currently his final live show.
Avicii’s forthcoming documentary ‘True Stories’ is set to premiere fall 2017. Ahead of the film’s arrival, the producer has become more candid about his touring fatigue, disappointing former collaborators, his continued inability to enjoy music in the live setting, and trading success for happiness earlier in his career.
Going to concerts regularly leads to a happier life, reports Victoria’s Deakin University. The university surveyed 1000 Australians and discovered a correlation between concert-going and overall satisfaction of daily-life.
Avicii launched his Avicii FM radio show over the weekend, broadcasting live via Facebook on Saturday (2nd September). You can listen to the show below.
On the first instalment of Avicii FM, the Swedish EDM star played every track off his recently released ‘Avīci’ EP, as well as talking extensively about his time in The Amazon following his retirement from touring.
Oliver Heldens has extended an invite to the entirety of the internet to assist with his upcoming single ‘Underwater Melon’. Heldens is seeking suggestions for lyrics and album artwork.
At present, the instrumental sees Heldens veer towards unfamiliar mid-tempo glitch-hop and trap-inspired beats. According to Heldens, the lyrics will assist in making the track “real”.
“This is your chance to collaborate with me and I’m excited to hear what you got!” motives Heldens via his official website.
