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:

Making the switch over from an established career in sports journalism to the world of dance music in 2016, Jake Gable has cemented a spot as one of the industry's most in-demand names during his tenure to date. Working on highly successful press campaigns for the likes of Tiësto, MK, and many more during his time at one of London's most premiere PR outfits, Gable has also proved his hand as a skilled journalist, interviewing acts such as Oliver Heldens, Martin Solveig, NERVO, and many more at international events like EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and Amsterdam Dance Event. Working tirelessly as the CEO & Founder of UK company The EVENT, Gable also doubles up as a tour manager, playlist curator, dance music influencer, and DJ, under his JK-GBL alias. Further adding strings to his bow as a freelance copywriter - where he has worked for numerous iconic artists such as Axwell, and labels, such as Third Party's Release Records - Gable is best known for producing two of the biggest editorials in We Rave You history; The first a breaking news story on Swedish House Mafia's return at Miami's Ultra Music Festival in 2018 (a world exclusive), and the second titled 'Avicii: The Truth...', an inquest into the EDM star's passing, published less than 24 hours after his death.
