Avicii: chart-topping EDM star dies at 28

The producer and DJ, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead in Oman

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

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 an Instagram post, Diplo called him a real groundbreaker and influencer to all your peers while Deadmau5 tweeted: nobody can deny what he has accomplished and done for modern dance music and im very proud of him.

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

A documentary about the DJs career, Avicii: True Stories, was released last autumn, chronicling his final world tour and his health struggles. It features peers such as 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 Tims struggle and strength of character.

Avicii last released new music in 2017, with his six-track EP Avci (01). The album was nominated for a Billboard music award in the category of top dance/electronic album. In his most recent tweet, sent out on 17 April, Avicii thanked Billboard for the nomination.

He was best known for hit songs Wake Me Up and Levels, both of which reached No 1 on the Billboard list of top dance club songs. Twice-nominated for a Grammy award for best dance recording, Aviciis debut album True, released in 2013, madethe top 10 in 10 different countries.

The DJ, who was born in Stockholm, was regularly ranked in the top five of Forbes list of highest-paid DJs before his retirement. In 2012, he became the first electronic musician to headline New Yorks esteemed Radio City Music Hall.

In a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, Avicii reflected on his decision to stop touring, explaining how multiple hospitalizations and life on the road began to take their toll. None of us today can fucking handle our emotions most of us are running around being reactive, he said.

Thats why I had to stop touring, because I couldnt read my emotions the right way. The whole thing was about success for the sake of success. I wasnt getting any happiness anymore.
