Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc – Wake me up

"Wake me up when it's all over, when I'm wiser and I'm older. All this time I was finding myself and I didn't know I was lost."  Poignant lyrics sang by Aloe Blacc.  I really love those lyrics and am just going to leave them to speak for themselves.  Who I really want to talk about is Avicii, I've heard of Avicii a few times over the past few years but nothing has ever really prompted me to look him up and find out a bit more about him until this tune.

This song makes me want to be at an outdoorsy festival, dancing with a drink in hand next to my favourite people, it was because of this that I went on a little search of said DJ genius.  It turns out Avicii is a young and extremely talented Swedish DJ, record producer and remixer who was named the 3rd top DJ in the world by DJ Magazine in 2012.  His house beats and funky melodies have become a recognisable style that he is constantly improving and shaking up.  Avicii plays regular sets in Ibiza and it seems like he's conquering the music world already, at only 24 years old - respect.

DJ Hedegaard remix — Smoke Weed Everyday

The Personal Thoughts of Hana Difrawy...

I've always had a place in my heart for the legend that is Snoop Dogg, I mean I use his language daily fo sheezey weezey and Dr. Dre has to be one of the most legit people in the Hip Hop business today.  When "The Next Episode" was originally released as a collaboration between Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, it was one of those songs that you listen to until you kill it, memorising every word along the way.. I did that.


I would hear the song every once in a while in club or at the pub and still know all of the lyrics, choosing only appropriate times to preform them of course.  And THEN, I was at our local pub last weekend for the usual SNR (Sunday Night at the Runner), when "The Next Episode" made an appearance through the speakers from someones i-pod, but oh no, this was no normal version of the song.  Suddenly a bit of sexy reggaeton was remixed into the groove, it caught me by surprise and definitely got me on my feet within less than 3 seconds.. that's pretty quick.. I was impressed.

I grabbed the owner of the i-pod and demanded to know how and where I could get it, so I did.  And here I present to you, the brilliant remix of "The Next Episode" by DJ Rasmus Hedegaard!!!  Look out for this geezer, he is a fabulous DJ and knows exactly how to work those decks to get you dancing and shaking everything you've got, check him out at: rasmushedegaard.com
