DJ reactions and official statement for Avicii's UMF set
Yesterday, we posted Avicii's mind-boggling set from the 2nd weekend of Ultra. Seems like we weren't the only ones confused by the country and bluegrass influenced tracks the Swede played from his upcoming LP. One of the most discussed mixes of UMF raises the question whether it was a purposful hype-creating move, or just a radical change of direction for the usually uplifting progressive house producer. Among comments like 'find a new career bro' were some people who found the eclectic set excellent.
Twitter DJ reactions were as followed:
