Avicii and Lenny Kravitz Make Superlove

Whenever I saw @avicii and @LennyKravitz collaborating on the same track, I immediately got suspicious that it was some random mash up that "(fill in random DJ name)" put together. Shame on my for that knee jerk presumption, the track below is waaaaay too well put together to be anything but a superb concoction of electronics done by Avicii himself. It features his characteristically crisp synthesizers and exemplary use of tempo to keep listeners engaged. I wouldn't get too excited to hear much of Lenny, though, since he really only added a cameo vocal mid-way through the track.

The dime goes to Beatport on this one since it's currently sitting at #1 on the Top 100. I'm about half way through downloading the top 25 and as I mentioned earlier in the week, there's going to be an influx of new EDM on the blog as a result. If I were you, I'd keep a close eye on the top 100 if you're a fan of anything and everything electronic. I've got it bookmarked and as long as it keeps bearing wonderful fruit like the track below, I'll keep visiting daily. I'm still trying to figure out how exactly Beatport is going to play with iTunes in the open market, but as long as electronic artists keep feeding Beatport the new tracks and giving the cold shoulder to iTunes, it'll be an interesting battle to watch.

I'm pretty chapped Avicii is coming to Philly and I'll be flying back from Cancun. Oh well, he'll continue to be in the top 5 of my concert bucket list...#GreatWhiteBuffalo
