Avicii - Levels
You'd be forgiven for thinking Avicii's last minute inclusion on Leona Lewis's Collide would overshadow any future releases by the Swedish DJ - with all the furore over the track it did more than take away from the actual quality of how good the producer's command of dance essentials on the song were. The inspired reworking of the Perpetuum Mobile piano riff, the rise and fall of the track's surging bassline - that was all him.
But he's back, and with a club-busting smash to boot - new single Levels boasts one of those indelible dance hooks that on first hearing already feels familiar. Surely, if anything, the sign of a future classic. With all the R&B/dance crossovers at the moment, Levels is a refreshing return to good honest floorfiller magic at its best.
Levels is released on the 2nd January.
