Genre-defying Swedish talent Avicii is back with a fresh new tune “Dreaming Of Me.”  “Dreaming Of Me” goes back to the classic Avicii sound of beautifully crafted melodies heard most notably in “Bromace.”  The emotional tune also features the folk vibe Avicii adopted in his album ‘True.’  Avicii recently spoke to Billboard about ‘True’ and his next album saying, “I really love the direction I went with this album because I ended up with something I never had before, which is real songs other than house songs.  I like house music, it’s always where I begin and it’s my number one passion. But those tracks are also made for the dancefloor. […]

Dutch heavyweight Fedde Le Grand is back at it with a powerful, euphoric vocal house anthem “Lifted.”  The hard pounding drums and angelic vocals deliver pure euphoria perfect for late night raving hours.  Working with a phenomenal female voice in this progressive smasher, Fedde Le Grand has never been one to repeat himself and “Lifted” is no different!  “Lifted” was first premiered at Sensation Amsterdam – Into the Wild and later in the FLG TV Special: Road to Sensation USA.  The track also features a well known EDM singer/songwriter but TURN UP THE BASS is not at liberty to further discuss those details.

Premiered at TomorrowWorld “We Are Legend” is a mad collab between Belgium brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Dim Mak head honcho Steve Aoki.
