Viralbpm - Embracing Electronic Sound of Tomorrow

Avicii

It’s hard to mourn. It’s even harder when you are about to write a requiem article for the greatest musician of our modern times and creator of a song like “Levels” that so adamantly denies the darkness. “The track I’m personally looking forward to the most is one we haven’t named yet, called “ID” (Levels) by the fans! Really can’t wait to see how people respond to that!“, Avicii aka Tim Bergling told me in a 2011 interview for Eleftheros Typos Newspaper in Greece. Two years later “Levels” earned him a second Grammy nomination, following the one on his work on David Guetta’s “Sunshine”, which were among the proudest moments of his career. However, Avicii‘s favourite production was “Bromance”, as he always believed it granted him all the success that followed. In the same interview I told him that many people described him as the “sound of now”, even though I believed that he was “the sound of the future”. Avicii replied that he was hoping that he would be both, although he was a lot more: An inspiration for thousands of young talents worldwide and a moniker that changed the way we listen to electronic music nowadays and forever. Rest In Peace #Avicii.
