Avicii's Levels in Reverse

Could @avicii's Levels be the most audibly pleasing dance track of all time? I say that because despite @official_flo's blatant beatjacking of his original instrumental, I'm starting to get the feeling that music fans appreciate his version more. Considering how many more people in the US know Flo Rida compared to Avicii, that's a pretty big deal.

That's only the beginning of why it's such a legendary beat too. As the story goes, @georgemonev put the icing on the cake when he cemented the track's other-worldly status by flipping the synthesizers in reverse. I know what you're thinking, the only time I've heard a track in reverse has been to hear some crazy hidden message. Not the case with this one as the original song maintains it's catchy, dance-worthy sound, but with a completely different sound. I can't say I've heard anything like it before, it's nuts on so many Levels. The folks over at P&P put it best when they said, "It’s like a fucking rainbow captured in audio form."

Needless to say, there's a 100% chance I will be mixing this in at my next gig as a change of pace, rabbit-out-the-hat style surprise. Lead in with the original, flip it in reverse, and coast home with Flo Rida's radio version (©). Let 'em know...#YouHeardItHereFirst
