Avicii masterpiece ‘Dancing In My Head’ turns 7 years old

For many, Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii was best remembered for commercial hits such as the iconic ‘Wake Me Up’, but for his earliest fans, the name ‘Tim Bergling‘, or in this case, ‘Tom Hangs’ (another alias used by Avicii), will always mean one thing: Progressive house filled with rich melodies and an unmistakable signature style. Having burst onto the scene with his remix of Bob Sinclar‘s classic ‘New New New’ and his Out of Miami Mix of Sebastien Drums‘Sometimes I Feel’, Avicii took things up a notch on this day in 2012.

Taking Eric Turner‘s original version of ‘Dancing In My Head’, the Swedish maestro flipped the record into one of the greatest prog-EDM anthems ever made, blessing the release with a sweet hook and superbly rhythmic build. Eric – who had previously worked with Tinie Tempah on ‘Written In The Stars’ – laced the production perfectly with his vocals, and so a new classic was born.

Now turning 7 years old, it’s a big happy birthday from all at We Rave You to this iconic masterpiece. So sit back and enjoy the finest slice of Avicii, a true genius who we miss daily. Relive the masterpiece below:
