Laidback Luke has revealed two big things this week, firstly announced his proposal to long time girlfriend Ashley Noel and now today he’s announced he’s one of a lucky few to have been requested to remix Avicii’s recently released ‘S.O.S’, a collaboration featuring Aloe Blacc that came along with the announcement of the Tim Bergling Foundation charity and the forthcoming album ‘Tim’.
Laidback Luke says of the remix “[Avicii’s] Family reached out to me asking if I could do it, it was something Tim wanted, I am super honoured“ he goes on to say of it that it s a tribute mix and lets us know it was a difficult thing to make this remix emotionally.
Looking towards the early days of Avicii, Laidback Luke’s forum was an important and frequented place for new talents learning how to produce as there was no tutorials and remake all over YouTube, the forum is where Avicii first found a community to share his idea’s with and it no doubt helped shape his productions in a major way. It’s amazing to see this go full circle with Laidback Luke now remixing one of his last ever pieces of music.
It’ll be out this Friday and we’re unsure wether there are other remixes of S.O.S at this stage but Tiesto played his own remix of the latest single “Tough Love” this past weekend at EDC Japan which you can also watch below. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as more get official release dates.
