[UPDATE: The track previously attached and included in this post was mis-titled “Avicii & Alesso – The Rules Has Changed“. This latter track is actually titled “Archie.V – Magic Is Timeless“. I sincerely apologize for the error, i did not do my homework and this consequtial lack of research has made my blogging credibility seem worthless. In the future i will make it my mission to check the facts. My whole-hearted apologies once again.]

 
While he made the biggest of strides in 2011 it seems dazzlingly comforting to imagine what Avicii and the At Night family have in store for us in 2012. I’m thrilled! Perhaps its time to take the reigns behind the decks of another BBC Essential Mix (wink, wink, wink). Kicking off the new year with the single most selfless act i’ve seen in the EDM industry so far Avicii and the team are at the forefront of the love movement that accompanies our culture. The House for Hunger Tour hits cities around the USA beginning Jan 5 and aims to raise $1,000,000 for those in need of one of the most essential things: food. We were given the very kind opportunity to catch up with Tim during the holidays and here’s the result. I hope you all are having the best of holidays so far, be safe and…have fun!

Tim, considering that you are currently sick i must say you are a trooper for taking on this interview so thank you. Plenty of ginseng my friend! Okay, 2011 has been a monumental and eventful year for you and the At Night family – to say the least – nice work, really. What’s your new years resolution coming into 2012?
Avicii
For 2012 Im gonna just keep doing what Ive been doing in 2011, keep up the touring and alot of studio work! Theres alot of really big stuff coming up for next year that I’m really excited to be able to show you guys! (see flyer below)
ReySon
Do you enjoy any winter sports when your not cooped up in the studio? Should i be keeping an eye out for a few EDM celebs on the slopes in Sweden? Haha. Or, perhaps you’ve taken up surfing being in LA so often?
Avicii
Haha I used to ski before but seeing as I have almost no time off anymore its really hard to find the time for it!
ReySon
With the Christmas holidays now in our rearview mirror for yet another year, what did you get your folks this season? Most of the times the hardest gifts for to get are those for ma & pa, haha.
Avicii
I brought my parents over to the states for a two week vacation, this way i was also able to celebrate christmas with them!
ReySon
With intensive touring comes the grateful opportunity of visiting so many cities and the cuisine that accompany them. You must have savored a few meals while on tour, do any stand out? Perhaps a particular dish or have you been pigging out on In-N-Out burgers…don’t lie? Haha
 
 
Avicii
Hehe well thats one of the plus sides of this profession, that I get to eat at some of the best restaurants in the world, but even so its really hard with a busy schedule to stay away from fast food. I really enjoy the sushi at Nobu! One of the best food experiences ive had so far though was at a lowkey brazilian meat restaurant in Sao Paolo!
ReySon
If the genie from Aladdin were to grant you three wishes, what would you wish for? Remember, you can’t wish for more wishes, that’s one of the rules! Haha
Avicii
Haha hmmm I would probably ask for health, wealth and happiness for me and the people close to me.
ReySon
Pancakes, waffles or crepes? Pick one!
Avicii
Crepes!
ReySon
How do you drink your coffee? By the off chance you don’t drink coffee, what’s your favorite energy drink? I have to know whether to bring you a cup of java or a case of energy drinks the next time your in the neighborhood (Toronto). Haha.
Avicii
I dont really drink coffee ! If i had to choose it would be red bull!

    Please edit your post for basic grammar. It makes you as a writer and your website seem less credible to me when you haven’t taken 2 minutes to do basic editing in simple English. (Capitalize I, you’re instead of your…etc.)

    Haha, we have a grammar nazi on our hands. I try my hardest to use proper grammer kiddo, but were not all perfect and some of it does slip by. I apologize. I also try to balance the format of my writing using everyday slang and proper formal vocabulary. Its an EDM blog yo, not New York Times ;D

    “when you haven’t taken 2 minutes to do basic editing”…

    Proper grammar would insist that you spell the word “two” as opposed to using the digits when writing a sentence. Just sayin’ dawg.

  • http://thedropmusicblog.com Karina

    I understand, but you can still use slang words and proper punctuation. Other premier music blogs like gottadancedirty.com & vacaywave.com have a laidback, humorous way of writing but it still looks clean and professional. Just a thought for you to chew on :)

    Bottom line: i will improve on my grammar.

    As for GDD.com & VW.com…I know Jonah and Kai, they’re rad guys. I truly don’t believe grammar played the ultimate role in the success of their blogs though. They simply blog about quality music. They provide free downloads and/or exclusive releases. A music blog in a nutshell: posting about music before anybody else – possibly for free – and providing informative content.

    Best of luck with your blog Karina! I love your logo. Design and branding is everything in a music blog…

    Correct grammar is an indication of intelligence, anybody who substitutes “you’re” (you are) for the incorrect “your” has clearly missed the school boat. I can live with numbers written as digits, but don’t get me started on people writing “should of” instead of “should have”. Urrgghhh!!!
