Don Diablo reworks Avicii, Sebastien Drums’ ‘My Feelings for You’ for Vicious Records’ 30th anniversary compilation

Since his passing, many have reworked Avicii’s compositions, though few have seen the honor of having a release published officially. Vicious Records has enlisted several artists to do so in commemoration of three decades of dance hits from the esteemed imprint. The Aussie label’s 30-year anniversary celebrations are set to begin with the release of more than 20 reworks of some of the label’s most iconic tracks. Avicii and Sebastien Drums’ once inescapable “My Feelings For You” is one of the first to be released by Vicious, remixed by house luminary Don Diablo.

Instantly becoming a quintessential Avicii select by 2010, the track further cemented the artist as one of the top EDM producers of the day. “My Feelings for You” was an electro-house take on a 1999 cut from Phillipe Zdar and Hubert Blanc-Francart, better known as iconic French electronica duo Cassius. The song featured an inimitable, soulful vocal loop sampled from Southern soul songstress Gwen McCrae, as heard originally on her funk track, “All This Love That I’m Giving.” The late producer transformed McCrae’s heartrending vocal sample into a timeless progressive house anthem.

And now, Don Diablo has carefully crafted a blazing rework of the former Beatport chart-topper. Emotive and resounding, the remix stays true to its original counterpart, with a focus that doesn’t waver from McCrae’s soulful affirmations. Overall, the remix is an apt homage to Avicii’s legacy and a testament to Don Diablo’s compositional versatility.

Streaming proceeds will go directly to the Tim Bergling Foundation, an organization founded by the late artist’s family after his sudden passing in 2018. The organization, originally established to advocate for suicide prevention, now works on addressing issues of climate change and nature conservation—learn more at the foundation’s website.
