We just can’t help ourselves, and neither can you!! Avicii is back again and this time it’s in the main room at Fur!!!
In the few years Avicii has been producing, he went from mild-mannered Swedish upstart to being named breakthrough DJ of the year by Tiesto, Laidback Luke and Dirty South and now he himself has broken into the DJ Mag Poll at #39!!!
The last time he was at Lima was so unbelievably packed we had to book him at Fur this time around. There’s no way around it, he’s that good, the fans (you!) are that good and the music is off the charts!! AVICIIIIIIIIII
Avicii had only been producing a few months when his friends noticed that the productions were amazingly professional and that they had just witnessed a great talent being born. Avicii started out with doing a remix of the theme music for the Commodore 64 game ‘Lazy Jones’, but decided to drop it as it inspired him to make his own ‘Lazy Lace’ – released almost immediately on Strike Recordings.
Avicii was instantly fascinated with producing and spent many hours in his home studio creating one fresh tune after the next. Avicii never tried to get caught up in a specific subgenre of house, but wanted to keep the productions up to date and innovative. His music is inspired by the likes of Laidback Luke, Steve Angello and Tocadisco, but also Daft Punk, Eric Prydz and that of Axwell.
What Avicii wants is to create music for people to listen to and come to love, whether it be at home or in a dark nightclub. Avicii puts great emphasis on melodies in his productions and wants to appeal to fans of many different house music genres. Avicii signed on to At Night Management in May 2008 and within a month the buzz around them spread noticeably and they were recognized on labels such as Joia Records, Vicious Grooves and Ministry of Sound, just to name a few. By the end of that month, Avicii had already signed a big deal with Vicious Grooves in Australia and were head on target to soon explode over the entire globe.
