Tim Bergling, or better known as Avicii the superstar DJ and producer announced a project where he plans to collaborate on his next hit with anyone. All are welcome to submit their beats for him to morph into a hit. There will be 5 stage to the project where artists and upload their samples inline with the chosen theme picked by Avicii. He will then in executive producer fashion, curate various sounds from the vocals, to the baseline into a glorious montage of community artistic endeavor in musical form. Each week three of his favorite contributions will be put up for public vote. The track will be premiered February 26, 2013. “My main ambition with this project is to create a large, worldwide music collaboration. It will be incredibly cool to create a house piece out of so many talented artists’ different ideas,” says Avicii.
“With the ‘Avicii x You’ project we are trying again to shift a paradigm and for it to become another ‘first’ using today’s possibilities through social technology. As usual, we hope to raise awareness not only for Avicii being an amazing producer, but also for the electronic dance music scene and how song producing is not exclusive to only trained musicians. It’s a world-inspiring, community-engaging and fun project,” says Ash Pournouri, Avicii’s business manager and producer in his own rights.
Partners in the project are At Night Management, Ericsson, and Universal Music. All the royalties from this project are being donated to the charity House for Hunger. The whole process will be documented on camera and then premiered throughout the project. So get scratchin, you only have til February 13 to submit here.
