Stockholm-based DJ and producer Kim Söderlund AKA Kimchii is a multi-faceted artist with a background in jazz and rock guitar. Distilling his classical training with a penchant for dance music- particularly disco, R&B, and house- Kimchii is a well rounded creator with depth. His recent offering “A HOMAGE” is a reimagining of fellow Swedish producer and certified dance music legend Avicii‘s “Levels.”
A devastating blow to the dance music community, Avicii’s death in 2018 still lingers in the hearts of artists and fans alike. Despite the great loss, Avicii’s work lives on through other artists who perform, spin, and rework his classics. “A HOMAGE,” Kimchii’s disco-funk take on “Levels,” is both a light in a tunnel of darkness and a funky reminder that legends never die. The original song shines through Kimchii’s grooving basslines and playful horns, breathing a nu-disco life into one of the greatest dance music hits of all time. A heavenly gesture to Avicii and a showcase of Kimchii’s remix prowress, “A HOMAGE” is a feel-good anthem steeped in electricity.
