The Death Of Levels (Electronica Oasis Bootleg Edit)

In memoriam 2011-2012

After today, we will not be mentioning Avicii’s ‘Levels’ ever again.

Even though people are still freaking out to it, it is dead. Dead, dead, dead.

Hard to tell when it became an inside joke and pariah of a track (maybe when Avicii Tweeted ‘Got a big surprise planned for you guys at the end of my set!’ and Zedd Tweeted back “You playing Levels?’ or when @@ decided to add Hot97 horns to it,) but ‘Levels’ is nothing more than an LOLcat at this point.

(Paris Hilton ‘dropping it’ in Brazil didn’t help it’s case much either.)

No offense, Avicii. We loved this track. A year ago.

We gave it it’s golden-star-with-smiley-face-on-it back in December, when we named it our No. 1 track of the year. No need to rehash its history. You had your moment, ‘Levels.’

To commemorate it long over due death, we’ve mixed together our favorite ‘Levels’ remixes (there’s a lot of them. Can you ID them all?)

So, for one last painful time da nuh nuh nuna-nuna nuna-nuna nuna, DA NUH nuh nuh nuna-nuna nuna-nuna nuna!

    Was this really necessary? Making a mix of a bunch of levels songs?

    regarding the ID’ing: I think I heard Avicii – Levels in there some where. Not sure about the rest

    2011 – 2012? The official release of the EP was in 2012, but the track has been around since 2010 so you are either too early or to late with the dates?

    What a ridiculous article. Why are people still just associating Avicii with ‘Levels’ , yes it’s a brilliant track, slightly overplayed at this stage, but there is so much more to him as a DJ and producer. Tim has some excellent new tracks, ‘This Is So Good’ , ‘Silhouettes’ to name few.

    “This Is So Good” is from Ehrencrona, actually.

    Yes I realised my mistake soon after. Seeing as that’s all you could respond to, clearly you know I’m right. Still a pointless article, Avicii isn’t relying on Levels, that’s just all you know him for!!

    You’ve clearly missed the humor of this article or you’re in some sort of Avicii denial. I like to remember Aveech for this.

    The first official release of this track was in fact March of 2011 where it was first identified as ‘id’. Its often amusing to see commentary where the focal point is to try and prove the poster wrong. Feel free to bash it just like any other youtube commentary, but know you look like a complete asshole just because you’re trying to prove a blog writer (who’s probably done his or her research) wrong.

    Everybody’s a music snob on the internet. Comes with the territory. I’m guilty of it from time to time.

    Let the debate rage on, trolls!

    Listen, Joey Joey Joey, why do we need you’re shitty view on “Levels”? What makes u good enough, to question or state, that we’re all tired of the song? You’re nothing but a useless twat, that’s bored, and needs to hate on a song, over the computer.

    For god sake, get a freaking life, enjoy the music, and stop hating on Levels. You might almost be the only person in the world, that hates the song.
