Here to save us from the doldrums of December is the young English producer, Samuel. With his latest production, he tackles the ailing Avicii, revamping the original with a tropical twist. Avicii - Dreaming Of Me (Samuel Remix) The guitar laden original vaguely captures the feeling of a Simon & Garfunkel / Toto track, only to quickly transform into a cheesy early 2000's dance track. Don't get me wrong, I love Avicii, but this track certainly wasn't his best effort. Samuel took the original melody and gave the acoustic guitar a more noticeable presence, even adding a powerful piano riff. However, the true departure from Avicii's original occurs at 1:51 with Samuel's soaring synth line carving a fresh melody, closing out a massive year for dance music globally.
