Vicetone are one of progressive house’s darlings, and they’ve been making music since the genre’s heyday in 2012. Since then, they’ve gone through a variety of styles, but they’ve never forgotten their roots.
After Avicii’s death earlier this year, every producer has been dealing with it in their own ways. Many producers like Nicky Romero and Tiësto pay tribute to him at their shows, others like Arty create their own songs in tribute. We can now add Vicetone to the latter list.
Their new song “South Beach” was announced yesterday with a lengthy statement explaining the history behind the track and Avicii’s influence on it (below).

Now that it’s out, fans can finally hear what it’s all about.
In an exclusive to Your EDM, Vicetone state, “‘South Beach’ is our musical tribute to one of our biggest influences of all time, Avicii. We started the track in 2012 and finished it this month, 6 years later. We hope that it will honor his revolutionary sound and the impact it had on our musical upbringing.”
