UPDATE: “The album I posted was not an Avicii album. It was a collaborative album headed up by Nick Terranova. Nick was the lead. ““Rockers” being the people inVolved there was a lot of my good friends people I considered “Rocks” working on this album… Howie Hersh on piano”s myah Marie Jeremy Carr miss bunty and of coarse Austin Leeds… and of coarse Tim… I’ll post a live video about this on Monday on Starkillers Facebook,” writes Nick's brother.
The passing of Tim Bergling has sent shockwaves through the dance music community. Avicii will without a doubt go down as one of the most legendary dance music producers of all time. After news of his passing came out to the public many of his fans were curious if we would ever be able to hear the wealth of unreleased music Avicii was rumored to be sitting on. Today we have a chance to hear some unreleased Avicii from a truly unlikely place.
Starkillers has had a historic career and is best known for his collaboration with Nadia Ali, ‘Pressure' which was iconically remixed by Alesso. Today Starkillers revealed he had a full long play album of unreleased music from a collaborative project with Avicii from 2009. Starkiller's brother uploaded all 12 tracks from the album to YouTube for fans to enjoy today now that the former written contracts are null and void. Here is the statement from Starkiller's brother:
“In 2009 I got to spend quite a bit of time with Tim (Avicii). Him and my brother Nick (Starkillers) made a lot of music together, while they lived together in Las Vegas. Most of that of that music didn’t come out as contracts where written and that following summer the history that we all have come to know happened for Avicii. Here is some of the music that did make it. Not as close in the last few years. But he will be missed by my brother and myself very much.”
There is no doubt that listening to this music is a bit bittersweet. It is some great stuff but just reminds us all the more that Avicii is truly gone. The tracks have a deep feeling of Tim's early work like that of his massive hit, ‘Street Dancer'. Check it out below.
Gonna miss @Avicii here’s the album we did in 2009 #ripavicii so many memorable times with you in Vegas this was the world we got to create together I hope u find peace brother https://t.co/UHBDsu7CwW
