The world renowned DJ, who's real name is Tim Bergling, has passed away which has been confirmed by his publicist.
Not Avicii :sob::sob::sob::sob:.
One of the best events I ever went to. I shed a tear when he played his remix of Drowing. Man, this one saddens me.

The Swedish musician was nominated twice for a Grammy Award for his work on 'Sunshine' with David Guetta in 2012 and also for his song 'Levels' in 2013.
He hit the top ten in more than fifteen countries and topped the Australian, Swedish, Danish and US charts.
In August 2017 he released a six track EP and said: "I'm really excited to be back with music once again. It has been a long time since I released anything and a long time since I was this excited over new music!
My focus on this first EP of the album was to get a mix of new and old songs: some that fans have been asking about and waiting for mixed with brand new songs that they have never been heard before!"
"Do you think about me when you're all alone? The things we used to do, we used to be. I could be the one to make you feel that way, I could be the one to set you free" :notes: :musical_note: #Avicii
