That time that Avicii produced Dubstep for Flo Rida

Avicii Good FeelingAvicii‘s history was incredible, full of successes and hits that became milestones of electronic dance music during his career.

Avicii was a top producer, and with the official releases, he “secretly” produced many tracks for many artists.

For instance, we might remember the most famous such as Sky Full Of Stars for Coldplay and Lovers On The Sun for David Guetta.

But how many of you remember Avicii’s signature in “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida? 

The song came out on 29 August 2011 and today counts more than 540 million views on YouTube. But, of course, we are talking about the same melody used for Levels, whose lyrics were cut from Something’s Got a Hold on Me sung by Etta James in 1962.

The very absurd backstory of this track is the presence of a small but evident Dubstep portion on the third drop. This might sound incredible if we think it was produced by Avicii, who never made anything in this genre (dubstep), at least officially.

However, it seems that Avicii was producing dubstep music with Aloe Blacc in that period. Indeed, did you know that there is an official release with Aloe Blacc released in June 2022? Of course, we do, but you can catch up on this story by reading our article HERE.

We do not question the success obtained by this song which is fantastic perse, filled with old school Pop/Dance vibe, particularly popular in that historical period. After all, “Good Feeling” remains a small Pop-Dance masterpiece.
