Avicii teases new tracks at EDC, we’ve got the rips
We’re still digesting the insane amounts of music that were played at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Electric Daisy Carnival, but we simply had to share these two tracks with you. Leave it to Avicii to take our breath away with fresh new material amid an extensive lineup of DJs — all of whom brought their a-game to dessert’s biggest dance-a-thon. Right now we don’t have anything more than “New ID” for the first track up (though we’re lovingly referring to it as “ID^2”). The build is phenomenal, and kind of reminds us of the older Avicii production, “Skype.” If you ask us, it’d be killer with a vocal track — and we know how Tim likes masterfully pairing those. The second track has a more electro feel to it, and is a possible re-work to The Temptations’ “Papa Was A Rolling Stone.” For now you can bookmark the SoundCloud rips below, but we promise to let you know more as soon as we do. For now though, what do you think?
Update: Commenters have pointed out that the first new track has an uncanny resemblance to Michael Woods’ “Drop Zone,” so we might very well be looking at an early cut of an Avicii remix to it. We’ve heard from other sources that it’s most likely getting a vocal track eventually as well.
