THE WORLD MOURNS & REACTS TO AVICII’S DEATH

In 2011 we were introduced to Swedish DJ and producer, Avicii, after he released his top charting hit Levels. He was at the forefront of the EDM wave and he came armed with an arsenal of smash hits. 

Avicii born Tim Berling was discovered at  21 years old on MySpace Dutch producer Laidback Luke.

In less than a decade, his arsenal of hits include club bangers such as Fade Into Darkness, Wake Me Up, Silhouettes and Hey Brother . His career defined the beginning of the radio-friendly EDM era.  In 2013 he headlined the Ultra Music Festival and that is one of the most momentous moments in his career.

SWEDEN MOURNS THEIR VERY OWN SUPERSTAR

Thousands of fans in Sweden gathered in Stockholm to pay tribute after his shocking death on 20 April while on vacation in Oman.

Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia were in attendance too. “It is with great sadness that we received the news that Tim Bergling has died. We are grateful that we got to know him and admired him as an artist and the nice person he was,” the royal couple said in a statement issued to local media over the weekend. He performed at their wedding in 2015. The couple added that,“He made our wedding unforgettable with his amazing music.”

He will unfortunately be remembered with an aura of tragedy. Although he was 28 at the time of his death. His death puts him nearly in the so-called 27 club. In 2016 he retired from touring due to health problems including acute pancreatitis, triggered in part by excessive drinking. Although, his cause of death remains unknown.
