Tim Bergling (8 September 1989 – 20 April 2018), known professionally as Avicii was a Swedish DJ, remixer, record producer, musician and songwriter. At the age of 16, Bergling began posting his remixes on electronic music forums, which led to his first record deal. After Vicious co-founder Andy Van was introduced to Avicii via his manager Ash Pounari, Vicious signed the young Avicii and that first deal saw the release of a selection of tracks over the next few years that saw Avicii first enter club and dance charts around the world and introduced clubbers globally to the Avicii sound.

The singles “The Sound Of Now”, “Muja” EP, “So Excited”, “Bom” , “Malo” , “Jailbait”, “Snus” & “Streetdancer” plus his collaborations with Sebastien Drums “Even” and his first ever Beatport number one, (also with Sebastien), “My Feelings For You” were all released on Vicious globally. His first ever Australian Tour was in early 2011 when he played a series of gigs around Australia to promote the Vicious Compilation “Vicious Cuts 2010” which we believe was also the first mix CD he ever did, and also included a disc from Australian DJ and Vicious co-founder John Course. Avicii went on to blow up globally on the back of his massive track “Levels” and the rest, as they say, is history!!! His lasting musical legacy is something quite special in the hearts and minds of dance music fans globally and we truly miss his melodic gift and musical output.

The Tim Bergling Foundation continues to work on the causes that both Avicii and his family hold dear and bring positive light to the loss of an amazing person, musician and artist.
