Sam Cameron's Marbella Nightlife Blog #11: Madonna Introduces 'Amazing' Avicii On Day Two Of Ultra Music Festival01-05-2012 Comments (5)
We have been talking about the growth of House Music and Artists such as Avicii, but from that to being introduced and presented (as a fan) by Madonna is a huge step!
Madonna makes a special appearance at the Ultra Music Festival held at Bayfront Park in South Beach. Wearing a black top with "MDNA" on the front, the title of her upcoming new album which is set to be released on Monday March 26th, black bootie shorts, striped gloves and laced up high heels, Madonna introduces DJ Avicci set. The event that has become known as the hottest dance party is the US, UMF brings together the worlds best DJs, producer and electronic-leaning bands with 150,000 mostly 18-25 year old music fanatics. Miami, FL.
Swedish house music producer Avicii is currently one of the most popular artists working in music — yes, in music, not just his native EDM. And that star standing was only reinforced on Saturday night when he headlined a gig on day two of this year's Ultra Music Festival.
Toward the end of the segment, Avicii praised Madonna for using EDM beats in her past work. It then cut to Madge extolling the power of live music. Just as it began to occur to the crowd that Madonna might actually be at Ultra, there she was, striding to the front of the stage.
"Hello, everybody, I've finally made it to Ultra Music Festival", she said. "I've been here in spirit for many years, but it's good to be here, finally. In my world, music and dance are not separate," she continued. "Electronic music has been a part of my career since I started, and I can honestly say, 'A DJ saved my life.'
"How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?" she then asked with a coy smile, making a reference to the drug MDMA, which not only had the crowd roaring back at the nod to rave culture, but also happens to be a thinly veiled wink at her new MDNA album title. "Are you ready to dance? Are you ready to sweat? Are you ready to make some noise, mother----ers?! This next DJ is amazing! Get ready for Avicii!"
With that, the lights came up on Avicii at the decks. Madonna then glided into the DJ booth to rock out with Bergling to her latest single, "Girl Gone Wild." She stayed for the duration of the song, smiling, singing along and laughing with Avicii.
Of course, Madonna has always been a friend of EDM. After success working with the likes of William Orbit, Paul Oakenfold (who recently visited Marbella), and Stuart Price (a.k.a. Jacques Lu Cont), she paid homage again to the club culture she loves over the weekend. Considering the pop queen's co-sign, Avicii's star has never been brighter.
"Tune of the Week" is of course Avicii's Remix of Madonna's "Girl Gone Wild"! Enjoy!
Will House Music & DJs have a biggest peak-point than this? Let's see!
