We all love Avicii‘s original songs. Even if you think “Le7els” is overplayed, you’ve got to admit, it’s one of the greatest dance music hooks of all time. It’s on par with “Do You Think You’re Better Off Alone,” and Avicii backs it up with a ton of other hits that are just as ubiquitous.
His is a talent that’s been tapped by everyone from Coldplay to Madonna, and that’s just for original production work. He’s done even more for artists looking to bolster their own original with a serious slammer of a remix. It’s hard to whittle it down to a list, but here are some of the best songs Avicii has remixed for your listening pleasure.
Robyn – “Hang With Me”
Oh, Robyn. It’s almost impossible for you to be even more perfect, but Avicii does a really awesome job with this one. That arpeggio, though.
Daft Punk – “Derezzed”
The Tron: Legacy soundtrack is essentially the fourth Daft Punk album and saw the robots throw some dystopia into their humanity-vs-electronics formula. Avicii took the hard-hitting single and turned it into a hopeful house tune. This is a happy ending, for sure.
Major Lazer – “Get Free”
Certainly one of Major Lazer’s most beloved hits, Avicii keeps all the parts that give the track its color and adds his own flair. It’s rather edgy for Avicii’s song catalogue.
Dada Life – “Cookies With a Smile”
Dada Life know how to make the aggressive sound incredibly catchy. Avicii tapers that rave rage with a repetitive rhythm that smooths the song’s edges but still urges your body to get moving.
Little Boots – “Remedy”
Do you need a pick me up? Looking for the perfect final push at the gym? Want something to jam to while you’re getting dressed for the club? This upbeat fun fest is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Bob Sinclair – “New New New”
The original is one hardcore club banger. Here we groove at a steady pulse as Avicii turns up the song’s brightness. It’s hard not to throw your hands up to this one.
A serious classic gets a serious update. The golden days of disco are never over in our hearts and minds, especially not when Avicii is still touching studio equipment. May he continue to record for years to come.
