Avicii feat. Aloe Blacc- Wake Me Up (Pretty Pink Remix)

Well… I guess the time has come for CasaSwoop to give in and do some fucking Avicii. As you may have noticed, here at CasaSwoop we pride ourselves on bringing you fresh tracks outside of what you’d normally listen to. Obviously, we all know Avicii and Aloe Blacc’s mega hit so I’m just gonna let you access your collective club memories and do without the analysis on this one. One thing of note is that the original does apply some country elements which I find noteworthy, albeit a bit of a cop out, but that’s not important. What is important is Pretty Pink’s remix. I mean, hot damn. This track really brings it. Pretty Pink is one of the few female remix DJ’s out there and she does a fantastic job of turning what is sort of a vapid, empty club mega hit into something juicy and full. She strips out the prototypical EDM fade and reverb layering and worthless “background crowd screaming” shit and brings out the actually beautiful piano and guitar lines. She also rerecords the lead vocal and adds a musically stimulating harmony line that complements the original melody. For all you EDM fans out there, this remix probably isn’t for you, but it is in keeping with the vibe that we’re creating here at CasaSwoop. So give them both a listen below and comment with your thoughts!
