Swedish electronic music DJ Avicii found dead at age 28

Swedish electronic music DJ Avicii found dead at age 28

While dealing with the recovery, the DJ had canceled many shows and stopped going on tours for his music.

Maitrai, who met Avicii (real name, Tim Bergling) at a five-star resort in Muscat last Friday and Saturday, says, "I was playing there and I recognised him".

"The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this hard time", the statement said. Baron said no further statements would be released. In 2016, Avicii had shocked his global fan base when he announced his retirement from live touring in an emotional letter he posted on his website.

Known for hit songs like Wake Me Up, Hey Brother, Waiting for Lov, Avicii has admitted he was inspired by musicians like Daft Punk, Swedish House Mafia and Eric Prydz. Billboard reported that he suffered from acute pancreatitis as a result of heavy drinking.

Just past year he announced that he would be returning to making music. "I wasn't seriously thinking that I was going to be a guitar player in a band or anything, but this was an actual possibility". "Wish I could have said that to you in person". Avicii was 28, but I can't help but wonder what it all means.

While there are few details about his passing, the only thing that's clear is that the talented producer was taken from us too soon.

"Devastating news about Avicii, a handsome soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do. It is the beginning of something new".

The producer was active on social media as recently as 48 hours ago acknowledging his nomination in this year's Billboard Music Awards "Top Dance/Elecetronic Album".

'My heart is so broken for you and your family. Choose me, and I'll show you love.' Those are lyrics from a song Tim wrote for me.

PARK CITY, UT - JANUARY 19: DJ Avicii performs at Wynn Las Vegas @ Park City Live! during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2013 in Park City, Utah.

Peers have praised the producer for the contribution he made to modern dance music and his welcoming attitude to new acts in the scene. With this, we at ESCToday offer the family and friends of Tim our deepest thoughts and sympathies during this sad time.
