If you ever wanted to break into the world of dance music, this is your chance. The 23-year-old Swedish producer Avicii has launched his six week project titled Avicii X You that is a casting call for beat makers around the world to show their skills. Over 3,200 artists from 140 countries have already submitted more than 7,000 melodies. Want in?
Week two is all about the bassline. You can download the samples here from his site and rework the sounds with your own style and flair. Once done, upload it back online and join the largest music collaboration the world has seen.
The “Levels” hit maker plans to take best melodies, basslines, beats/rhythms, breaks, effects and turn them into one massive song.

“My main ambition with this project is to create a large, worldwide music collaboration. It will be incredibly cool to create a house piece out of so many talented artists’ different ideas,” Avicii said.
