Having previously racked up huge success with singles like ‘Nevada’ (40 million Spotify streams) and ‘Astronomia’ (36 million Spotify streams), Dutch duo Vicetone is back, this time unveiling the sweet and sumptuous melodies of ‘South Beach.’
Soaked in their signature progressive house sound, packed with rich chord patterns, and vibrant hooks, ‘South Beach’ is as fitting as a tribute as possible to the great Tim Bergling aka Avicii.
“We will never forget that fateful day in April 2018, when we received the news of Avicii's passing while we were on tour. Our plane had just landed in Denver for a connecting flight when our manager texted us about his unfortunate passing. We could not believe that this was real and simply didn't want to believe it. We have never really been the kind of people who got heavily affected by celebrity deaths. Until that moment.”
Vicetone is equally comfortable crafting cinematic instrumentals as they are creating vocal-driven club anthems, with ‘South Beach’ – as the title suggests – offering a vibrant slice of slick summer vibes. “South Beach is one of the first original songs we made as a duo back in 2012 that was heavily inspired by Avicii’s sound. To this date, it is still one of our favorite instrumental tracks that we have ever made,” the pair added.
“We searched several of our old hard drives to see if we still had the project saved somewhere. As luck would have it, we did. And now we finished it, six years later. ‘South Beach’ is our musical tribute, a homage to one of our biggest musical influences. While it saddens us that we will never be able to tell him how much his music meant to us, we hope that this song will honor him and his style of music. He’ll be forever in our hearts.”
