Avicii – Levels (Skrillex remix)
Another day…another dubstep remix. This time Skrillex has been given the official duty to remake Avicii’s ‘Levels’ which is fair to be crowned the best trance song in many years. With this in mind, Skrillex is immediately put on a tight rope and has to do well, because otherwise he could be soiling a classic.
The remix is ok. Typically with Skrillex you can expect a lot of cutting wobbles and bass throughout the track, but he’s chosen to put a bit less in this time, which seems more suited. Instead, the real positives are the subtle changes, such as changing the pitch and adding a few filters into the track. The outcome is a fairly decent song, and confirms that trance and dubstep may have more in common than some would like to admit!
