Swedish DJ, artist, and producer Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, has died at the age of 28.

Avicii was one of the reasons behind the inspiration that propelled Raver Magazine to come into existence. I remember the first time I saw him perform on the rooftop at Club 50 in Miami during Miami Music Week. I will never forget how his music got the crowd bumping all the way to the Main Stage at Ultra Music Festival. His story and his music will live in my own heart, but I know for a fact that it will also live in the hearts of every Raver that loves dance music. Regardless of your faith, belief or creed, Avicii and his presence will undoubtedly never end – his spirit will reign on forever.

Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this challenging time…

Swedish DJ, artist, and producer Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, has died at the age of 28.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” reads a statement from his representatives.

He was found dead in Muscat, Oman, on Friday afternoon local time, the statement said.

“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.” The statement didn’t give a cause of death.

Avicii was known for hits like “Wake Me Up,” Hey Brother,” and “Levels.” He was nominated for Grammys for Best Dance Recording in 2011 and 2012, for the songs “Levels” and “Sunshine.”

brohug the streets

Sweden's BROHUG delivers a pair of innovative singles on their fierce EP The Streets. Throughout "On It" and the title track, the bass house trio interweaves elements of hip hop and trap alongside their signature wubs to craft some of their most relentless work yet.
 
Although the Swedish trio are relatively new faces to the scene, BROHUG has taken the world by storm with their refreshing brand of club music. Organically fusing bass house with deep, tech-driven sensibilities, BROHUG’s signature sound made its way into the catalogs of Heldeep RecordsSpinninTchami’s CONFESSION imprint, and Mad Decent’s sub-label Good Enuff. Kicking off 2017 with a bang, BROHUG put out two consecutive EPs, their Dim Mak debut Giggle Juice, followed by Knuckles. The former dominated Beatport’s Electro House Releases chart at #2 and received widespread support from Steve AokiMartin GarrixDavid GuettaDimitri Vegas and Like MikeAfrojackand many more. Showing no signs of slowing down, BROHUG unleashed two more hits in May, their latest original “If I’m Wrong,” and even teamed up with Moby on a fresh reboot of “Natural Blues.”
 
This August, BROHUG brings their show to North American audiences, including tour stops at Hard Summer, Electric Zoo, Sun City Music Festival, and more.
