Avicii Offers $5K in Official 'Without You' Remix Contest

Sean Eriksson


Avicii needs a new official remix, and he doesn't wanna do it “Without You.”

The elusive producer retired from touring, but his camp bustles with activity in the wake of his post-road return, Avici. “Without You” is one of my favorite songs on the EP. Vocalist Sandro Cavazza rips into the mic as the beat blasts up a mountain of confident defiance. It's a song about leaving your past behind and facing a future full of joy. Who doesn't want that for themselves?

You, too, can grab your happy future of dance production fame if you face Avicii's challenge. He's giving away the stems to his happy single and offering fans of all experience levels the opportunity to compete for his favor.

He teamed with DJCity and Geffen Records for the effort. DJCity will select its favorite top 10, and Avicii will hand-select the winner. The best remix gets released via Geffen Records as the official remix, plus $5,000 and a feature on DJCity's blog and social media.

Only one entry is allowed per contestant, and all entries must be submitted to DJCity no later than Friday, Sept. 8, at 11:59 pm PST. Finalists will be announced Wednesday, Sept. 13, and the winner will be announced Wednesday, Sept. 20. The contest is currently underway, so don't wait. Get to mixing.
