Swedish Dj, Remixer, and producer, Avicii performed this Monday at the Austin Music Hall as part of a one million dollar House for Hunger January 2012 Tour. The tour which boasts 26 high-performance shows packed into 27 days, began on January 5th, just on the heels of a Best Dance Recording Grammy nomination for the co-produced David Guetta track “Sunshine.” Austinites were able to hear for the first time live Avicii’s newly released single “Levels” which has been declared the “Tune of 2011” by David Guetta in DJ Mag. Avicii and his manager and executive producer, Arash “ash” Pournouri have also announced a commitment to donate $1 million in gig fees personally received from this tour to Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, comprised of more than 200 member food banks across the country.
AVICII: This is my second time in Austin. Don’t know really as I’m so busy not having any time off.
AVICII: Not at all. Took a while for it to reach that level. People had to get accustomed to the hook. Still amazed at the reaction I get from it.
