    Avicii dies aged 28

    Swedish DJ Avicii has died in Muscat, Oman, at the age of 28, according to reports.

    His representative said in a statement: “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.

    “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman, this Friday afternoon local time, 20 April.

    “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.”

    DJ Calvin Harris tweeted: “Devastating news about Avicii, a beautiful soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do. My heart goes out to his family. God bless you Tim x.”

    In 2016, Avicii retired from live performing due to health reasons, having suffered from acute pancreatitis owing, in part, to excessive drinking. In 2014, Avicii had his gallbladder and appendix removed.

    A documentary about the DJ’s career, Avicii: True Stories, was released last fall, chronicling his final world tour and his health struggles. It features peers like the DJs Tiesto and David Guetta, as well as musicians Chris Martin and Nile Rodgers. “Everybody knows Avicii but very few people know Tim,” said director Levan Tsikurishvili. “I think this documentary really shows Tim’s struggle and strength of character.”

    Avicii last released new music in 2017, with his six-track EP Avīci. He was best known for hit songs like Wake Me Up and Levels, both of which peaked at number one on the Billboard list of top dance club songs. Twice-nominated for a Grammy Award, Avicii’s debut album True, released in 2013, premiered in the top ten in ten different countries.

    Sad news. I wasn't really into the music he produced lately but is the age of 28 is really too early to go.

    I really liked these back in the days.

    Really sad news! So young. Quite liked some productions of him. "Wake me up" was quite catchy to be honest. May he rest in peace!

    such a shame if anyone goes so soon. Wake me up was truly unique track and i like it to this day, his earlier tracks under Tim Berg were enjoyable as well.

    Looks like it's suicidal because he wasn't happy in life. This is something a lot of young and old people face and fight against everyday. Looks like the saying is true, money does not buy happiness.

    He was the most influential EDM artist in the last decade alongside Guetta.

    No matter how mainstream his productions were, the guy always brought top production quality.

    Most important, he was a real musician. Not only a producer.

    RIP. Just goes to show there are hidden and unknown troubles behind producers lives that you wouldnt know about.

    You know it comes across as rather entitled, insensitive and disrespectful to bring this up right now, right? This isn't fucking about you.

    He will be remembered. And it just goes to show how important keeping your body in good shape really is, even at a young age. Not only physically but psychologically as well.

    Not really, he did say that while it's sad and he is entitled to his opinion if he feels his music was terrible.
