Its being two years as we lost one of the most amazing and talented producer, AVICII. So Aloe Blacc and tiesto sat for a conversation and Tiesto revealed that AVICII was heartbroken after his UMF 2013 set.
In this live stream Aloe and Tiesto shared so much memories about Tim and suddenly this happened. He said that people was not that satisfied with the sound of “Wake Me Up”.
Aloe Blacc and AVICII first played this track on Ultra Miami 2013. So Tiesto played after Tims set. Fans in Miami, though, were shocked and many stopped dancing when they heard the new blend of EDM and country.
It was “an interesting moment,” Aloe Blacc said, adding, “I don’t know that the audience was ready for what we did.” He said it felt “strange” on stage and asked if Tiësto felt he needed to build the audience back up. Tiësto did not feel that way, but agreed that Ultra attendees did not seem ready.
PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE, IF YOU HAVE SO MANY NEGATIVE COMMENTS COMING AT YOU, THAT IT CAN ACTUALLY HURT YOU AS A PERSON. I THINK TIM DEFINITELY GOT HEARTBROKEN BY WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS BRILLIANT,” TIËSTO SAID. “AND IT WAS BRILLIANT. I MEAN ‘WAKE ME UP’ IS THE BEST SONG IN THE WHOLE WORLD.”
“AT THE MOMENT, YOU PUT YOUR HEART AND SOUL IN YOUR ALBUM. YOU PLAY IT FOR THE FIRST TIME LIVE AND THE WHOLE CROWD IS KIND OF BOOING IT AWAY. AS A PERSON THAT FEELS VERY TOUGH,” TIËSTO SAID. “I WONDER IF THAT HAD ANY INFLUENCE IN HIM LATER FOR THOSE INSECURITIES, YOU KNOW.”
Tiesto also reminds all the negativity came from social medias. It really hurts, as an artist, it effects a lot. Aloe Blacc recalled there was “a lot of backlash”.
“WHEN YOU’RE THE PERSON THAT’S RECEIVING ALL OF THAT, IT’S DEFINITELY GOING TO AFFECT YOU AND MAKE YOU I THINK FEEL A BIT SELF-CONSCIOUS OF WHAT YOU’RE DOING,” THE SINGER SAID. “I’M GLAD THOUGH, THAT IT DIDN’T DETER HIM FROM MAKING THAT THE ACTUAL SONG THAT HE WANTED TO RELEASE.”

The fun part is most of the people who hate it at the first time loved it after two months later.
After this incident, AVICII posted on his social medias regarding this.
Avicii explained that his album was about “experimentation and about showing the endless possibilities of house and electronic music.” He clarified that it was certainly not country and that he “wanted to make a statement, and theres really no better place to make one than UMF mainstage.”
“PEOPLE WILL SOON SEE WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT,” AVICII WROTE. “MY MUSIC IS OPEN TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO LISTEN TO IT AND I WILL ALWAYS STAY TRUE TO MY SOUND. LOVE YOU ALL WHO LISTEN WITH OPEN HEARTS AND OPEN MINDS.”
Look what Wake Me Up did to him. Won over millions of hearts and minds. Late last year, ‘Wake Me Up’ earned the spot as the highest-charting dance music track of the decade.
R.I.P. Tim. You are still in our hearts.
