It came as a massive shock to the world on 20 Apr 2018, with the announcement of the global DJ Avicii aka Tim Bergling passed away while in Oman away with friends on Friday afternoon.
The 28-year-old “Wake Me Up” DJ from Stockholm began in 2008 after winning Pete Tong’s production competition, which went on to be streamed on Spotify with over 11 billion streams, and was the first EDM DJ to stage a worldwide arena tour.
He had his massive break with “Levels.”
This came as such a hit and shock when I heard it; something really shook me up, I had such a connection to his music in night environments (Clubbing), casual runs and afternoon lounging.
His work and talent hurled a raw of excitement! Overall, his success in doing something he loved was so admirable.
Everyone is talking about his death; it was reported that he had a few health issues in 2017, so he stopped touring and cancelled several concerts. It’s been said that he suffered from acute pancreatic necrosis.
Although his mindblown career and success you would think would be luxurious, the celeb life takes its toll; back in 2014, he struggled with other health issues, which involved him having his gall balder and appendix removed; he then went on to announce his retirement from touring in 2016.
This made him realize he needed time for himself, and the stress of touring, being here, and everywhere was impossible and caused a huge strain on his health. However, recently after an operation last year, he felt good, healthy and stress-free for once, which is why this has come as a sudden shock.
Avicii’s “Wake Me Up!” is the eighth-most downloaded song in the United Kingdom (1,340,000+)
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter later that year, he gave a candid interview about how the electronic music scene was “not for” him. My ex-girlfriend of 2 years, Emily Goldberg (2011 – 2013), has expressed her love and feelings on her social platforms. Recently releasing a new self-titled EP, Avici was nominated for a Billboard music award for top electronic album days before he passed.
The world has stopped and his top songs are top purchases on Spotify, iTunes, google play.
“It’s been a very crazy journey,” he continued. ”I started producing when I was 16. I started touring when I was 18. From that point on, I just jumped into 100 percent. “When I look back on my life, I think: whoa, did I do that? It was the best time of my life in a sense. It came with a price – a lot of stress a lot of anxiety for me – but it was the best journey of my life.”Tim
RIP Tim, a true artist who won’t be forgotten—gone too soon.
