“I COULD BE THE ONE” #1 IN UK AND TOP 10 ON BILLBOARD
Avicii has posted the official new Bent Collective remix of Avicii vs Nicky Romero “I Could Be the One,” and it’s getting major traction. The “I Could Be the One” track is shaping up as the biggest dance tracks of 2013, hitting #1 on the UK official singles chart and #4 on Billboard’s Dance Club Play Chart this week. The video has nearly 19 million combined Vevo/YouTube downloads.
Bent Collective is an engine for collaboration with a shared goal of fusing the talents of emerging DJs and producers and putting their collective stamp on the over-ground of dance music. The various members of Bent Collective are already successful in their own right and within their respective lanes. Together, they promise to ramp up collaborative fusion and move the goalposts for dance music forward as the genre continues to dominate the music industry. Coming together for Avicii vs Nicky Romero’s “I Could Be the One” are three of Europe’s biggest talents, Danny Verde (Italy), Steven Redant (Belgium) and Guy Scheiman (Israel).
Each worked in their own respective studios in different countries laboring through travels, gigs and solo projects to accommodate the deadline for the “I Could Be The One” remix. Through the wonder of Skype and shared programs the trio hatched the bottom end of the track with Steven even flying from Brussels into Danny’s “Holab” studio in Milan for the day, while Guy Skyped in with his contribution. The mix and its various sections and parts passed back and forth. The fusion worked, with the final layers of the process resulting in an anthemic take on an EDM future classic.
