It’s barely been a week since Avicii’s posthumous album TIM was released, and Tiësto is already coming out swinging with a new remix of the artist’s song “Tough Love” with Agnes, Vargas & Lagola.
“Tough Love” was released as the second single from TIM and features an Arabian influence in the strings with a more subdued drop section that plays more to a quick-paced ballroom dance than jumping and raging in a crowd at a festival.
Tiësto figured there should at least be some of that; he puts his own spin on the original by taking the melody and chopping it up, modulating it, and giving it a much more bouncy rhythm. Now tuned for the main stage, tens of thousands can rage to Avicii again when they catch Tiësto dropping this live.
