Avicii-1Μετά και την εμφάνιση του στο Ultra Music Festival την περασμένη Παρασκευή ο Σουηδός παραγωγός δέχτηκε δριμεία κριτική από μεγάλη μερίδα των θαυμαστών του για την μουσική που έπαιξε στη σκηνή του μεγαλειώδους φεστιβάλ του Miami. Πολλοί κατηγόρησαν τον Avicii ότι αλλάζει το υφος του, ενώ άλλοι έγραφαν πως θέλουν τον «παλιό» Tim Berg.

Η αλήθεια είναι πως ο νεαρός καλλιτέχνης πειραματίστηκε και παρουσίασε κάτι το ξεχωριστό, πέραν ενός συνηθισμένου dj set με κιθάρες και πολλούς καλλιτέχνες να τον συνοδεύουν επί σκηνής.

Διαβάστε την ανακοίνωση που εξέδωσε ο Avicii:

«Wow looks like I stirred up some controversy with my set friday night at UMF. Seeing alot of people who dont understand. My full set wasn’t being streamed, only the last 40ish minutes with all new material from my album.

In a 75 minute set, I brought a 15 minute different breakdown with live musicians to a festival with nonstop dance music for 3 days straight 2 weeks in a row . I really wanted to switch things up and do something fun and different, as I always strive for, and this album is about experimentation and about showing the endless possibilities of house and electronic music. Its about how to incorporate acoustic instruments from different styles and influences you wouldnt expect and still stay true to your own sound and musicality which for me has always been about the melodies and positive energy. I will always produce music that I love and listen to. But my album is certainly not «country», and people have gotten hung up on an instrument we used for the live cover of a song. Every song on the album is a fusion with house and electronic music.

We wanted to make a statement, and theres really no better place to make one than UMF mainstage. People will soon see what it’s all about.

My music is open to anyone who wants to listen to it and I will always stay true to my sound. Love you all who listen with open hearts and open minds. These past few months Ive been so lucky to have had the chance to work with so many talented artists and to bring them there when I launch the album was amazing and they all did an amazing job.

This was my first time performing with a band and I couldnt have asked for more a professional team, I really want to thank @MichaelEinziger and his fiancee, @vatoben and @JoseAPasillasII from Incubus, @Aloeblacc, legend @Mac Davis, @audramae and @dantyminskii for joining me on stage.»
