Such sad news. 28 year old Swedish producer & EDM DJ, Tim Bergling also known as Avicii, passed away Friday afternoon. His rep confirmed with a statement, “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” the statement reads. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.” He was nominated Tuesday for a Billboard Award & tweeted his gratitude shortly after. Lots of celebrities & friends of his have reacted via social media. His loss is one the EDM genre will feel for a long time. Rest in peace.
Wow, I would like to take a moment to pay tribute to the man who really opened my eyes as to what my productions could one day sound like. @Avicii was a genius and a music innovator, and I can not believe he is no longer with us. RIP to the very best.
