Here is a dubstep remix by Skrillex of the song “Levels” by Avicii. This is a really great remix of Levels. Skrillex brings his classis dubstep sound to this song. Levels uses the same Etta James sample as Pretty Lights 2006 song “Finally Moving”. Levels also inspired the song “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida’s.
“Levels” (stylized as “LE7ELS”) is a song by Avicii, containing the vocal sample from the 1962 gospel-inspired “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” byEtta James, as written by Leroy Kirkland, Pearl Woods and James. A preview of the first version was uploaded on December 18, 2010 on YouTube, and it was originally called ID. Then on March 23, 2011 the definitive version called Levels with Etta James’s vocal was shot on YouTube.
