Named breakthrough artist of 2009 by Tiesto, Laidback Luke and Dirty South, Tim Berg AKA Avicii is CLEARLY one of the best young talents in the world. He produced ‘Bromance,’ Glow’s early choice for 2010 song of the year. With all the music we hear, that’s saying an awful lot.
His set at Electric Zoo electrified partygoers and proved that this young Swede is going to be making waves in dance music for decades to come. Oh yeah… he recently celebrated his twenty-first birthday, so buy the man a shot when you see him!!!
Avicii had only been producing a few months when his friends noticed that the productions were amazingly professional and that they had just witnessed a great talent being born. Avicii started out with doing a remix of the theme music for the Commodore 64 game ‘Lazy Jones’, but decided to drop it as it inspired him to make his own ‘Lazy Lace’ – released almost immediately on Strike Recordings.
Avicii was instantly fascinated with producing and spent many hours in his home studio creating one fresh tune after the next. Avicii never tried to get caught up in a specific subgenre of house, but wanted to keep the productions up to date and innovative. His music is inspired by the likes of Laidback Luke, Steve Angello and Tocadisco, but also Daft Punk, Eric Prydz and that of Axwell.
What Avicii wants is to create music for people to listen to and come to love, whether it be at home or in a dark nightclub. Avicii puts great emphasis on melodies in his productions and wants to appeal to fans of many different house music genres. Avicii signed on to At Night Management in May 2008 and within a month the buzz around them spread noticeably and they were recognized on labels such as Joia Records, Vicious Grooves and Ministry of Sound, just to name a few. By the end of that month, Avicii had already signed a big deal with Vicious Grooves in Australia and were head on target to soon explode over the entire globe.
