Farewell to a legend

Avicii the musical genius has moved on and we hope he may rest in peace. Yes, this is true, Tim Bergling aka "Avicii" has passed away last night and was found dead in Oman. He has been such an inspiration to us all and for most, the reason they discovered electronic music. His most famous track, "Levels," will live on to be one of the most played songs for a long time to come.

We still recall the first time we heard this track in 2011 in January at Tiesto's club life residency at the Hard Rock hotel in Las Vegas. Tiesto said "this is a new track from my friend Avicii" and everyone knew the future superstar was destined for greatness with that track. There are so many amazing songs that he would release along the way in his short but successful career, we are listening to all of them here in the office today. We want to extend our heartfelt condolences to everybody who was touched in any by Avicii's music, shows, or wonderful personality. Lastly, we want to express our deepest gratitude to Avicii and his entire team for being a pioneer, and changing the way the world viewed dance music.

My first ever festival was TomorrowWorld, there I truly learned that this music, this energy, this feeling, is my true passion. Avicii Sadly could not make that festival and announced he has stopped touring around the same time. As my festival family was being created, we all had one main commonality…the love and lore of seeing Avicii one day. Sadly, that day will never come. BUT, what Tom did do unknowingly to him, was bring together a group of people from different nationalities, ages, races, and demographics to become close friends. That is what I think music is all about, and that is why I thank you Avicii.

Last week i started listening to Avicii again. His newer material was so good. I go through periods of listening to different genres with my mood, and listening to his art was truly memorizing. Then i hear the news of his sad passing :’( Difficult to hold back the tears listening to his amazing music. Gone but never forgotten! RIP legend!

As a kid, i was expected to listen to the Jonas Brothers or Avril Lavigne but instead I was the outcast and I listened to Tiësto, Calvin Harris and Avicii, I remember falling in love with Levels the first time i heard it and it was just mesmerizing, im 18 now and even til today i still have that same feeling with that song and im a local DJ in my town and i always play it because i love it so much, and hearing about his passing was so hard on me, i was literally in school when i heard about it and i just bawled out crying, Avicii is a big inspiration to me, if it wasnt for me discovering him as a kid i dont think i would have ever love EDM as much as i do and to now even producing and playing my own tunes, Avicii thank you, your a god and a legend 🙏🏼

I honestly don’t know where to begin!! My heart stopped and I began to cry when I found out and quickly double checked because I thought it was fake at first!! Then my biggest fear was confirmed and filled with sorrow!! He is gone too soon from our world!! His songs have meant so much too me and pulled me through some tough times and brought my family and me so much joy!! My kids were even sad when they found out because levels is one of the first songs they can remember dancing and jamming to!! May you forever make music in the stars sweet tim!! RIP you will be greatly missed!!

Two weeks ago I put Avicii’s debut album back into the cd slot in my car to revisit how much I was in love with that entire LP. I haven’t taken it out since. Since he has passed it has hit me really hard how much a persons music can influence you. I received multiple texts from friends i haven’t heard from in a long while right as the news got out. They all told me how saddened they were and appreciate how happy they were that I introduced them to his sounds. He has influenced so many and I hope that he has passed knowing that he has done so. RIP Avicii you will never be forgotten.

How does one begin to describe such an immense gratitude to a man who created such greatness. Tim was not only a pioneer of great music but a leader and for that I think he deserves more than what was given to him. One of my main reasons to join this community of electronic/dance music; the rave community is he brought something in my heart that gave me hope and happiness when I needed it the most all through the power of his music. There are very few artists that can give me such a feeling of joy that he brought and not to sound chessy but I can still hear avicii’s sound in a lot of music that has been made by other artist that bring that same vibe that he did to me. No artist will compare to him in my life. You will be missed and never forgotten and I say this with a heavy heart because he truly impacted me. Rest easy brother ❤️

He got me back into EDM, his music always got me out of a rut, and he made me happy at the toughest times. Waiting for Love, Wake Me Up, Without You, Levels, those songs helped me out so much. They made me so happy and they brought out the best of me. Avicii is my favorite DJ and I always planned on seeing him. One day I will again. I remember when he went on his break from music, and I knew when he came back he would drop some heat, and he did. Every album, I was just immediately happy, he made that happen with his music. He will always be part of our family, he will always be with us under the electric sky. See you soon, brother.

definitely a legend, I remember when I saw him for the first time in 2013 in Mexico City, definitely the best night of my life so far, even he made me cry, then I had the oportunity to see him at EDC Mexico at 2014 and it was amazing, he was my favorite dj, and for many of us more than that, he was an example of life, and I am not talking just about me, some other dj’s and people who where inspired by his music
His music is more than that, his music is full of messages and inspirational messages.
as he said “One day you will leave this world behind, so live a life you will remember”
Tim will be always in our hearts, and will live forever
I’m gonna miss you Tim
RIP LEYEND

I was dumbstruck when I heard the news today. I always loved Avicii’s music. “Wake Me Up” came out when I was at the lowest point in my life, and helped me out more than I can put into words. It became my anthem as I pulled myself up and grew into a better person. He inspired me to start DJing and producing many years back. I keep a signed photo of him on my music wall as a dose of inspiration whenever I need it. I can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done for not only myself, but the dance music scene as a whole. He will be greatly missed.

Avicii, like Kaskade, Deadmau5, Skrillex, was a pioneer in way I saw music. I’ll never forget listening to his remix for Armin’s “Drowning.” There were literally hours I’d spend listening to that song in my room. His songs were always just so god damn catchy and no matter what genre you loved; you were singing it at the top of your lungs when your favorite DJ or Avicii played it… “Waiting for Love”, “Wake Me Up”, “The Nights” . I could go on and on. I’m going to miss Tim so much. His music will be his legacy. 28 is way too young to go and Tim had so much more to give to the world. Rest in Peace.
