Tiësto has paid tribute to the late Avicii, with a studious remix of ‘Tough Love’. There was no doubt that we were to see some of the most influential dance music names lining up to remix tracks from Avicii’s posthumous album ‘TIM’ released only twp weeks ago. The likes of Lucas & Steve and Laidback Luke have already had the privilege of applying their own special touch to the Swedish prodigy’s work.
This Friday, we were treated to one more; a very special Tiësto remix of the second single from the album; ‘Tough Love’. In the remix, he builds on Avicii’s masterful foundations, guiding blissful piano melodies around the enchanting, reworked vocals of Agnes, Vargas & Lagola. Although it lacks the same oriental feel Avicii intended for the original, Tijs has not disappointed, blending in his own signature synths and drums seamlessly.
The 50-year-old has driven his version to be even more energetic, giving the track more of a club feel ready to enliven crowds worldwide. Even before it’s release it had already proven popular with fans, as Tiësto debuted it at EDC Japan back in May.
