Il 20 aprile 2018 verrà tristemente ricordato in eterno, negli annali della musica dance. Se ne va una delle stelle più luminose dell’industria dance del ventunesimo secolo, quello che da sempre abbiamo tutti definito come il ragazzino che di diritto può sedere tra i più importanti game changer della storia della musica nella sua interezza. Se ne va Avicii. Le parole per approfondire l’argomento sono poche, perchè il fiato manca un po’ a tutti e il sentimento generale somiglia ad una speranza che domattina il mondo possa svegliarsi e scoprire che era solo un brutto incubo: ma purtroppo non è così.
Ciò che la vita di Tim e le sue opere hanno significato per la comunità è qualcosa di immenso, maestoso, indelebile. Tutti i grandi protagonisti della scena musicale hanno deciso di dedicare un pensiero al giovane svedese scomparso a soli 28 anni, per cause al momento sconosciute. Ne riportiamo alcuni di seguito.
You set the precedent for the rest of us producers/ opened doors and set the trends . A real groundbreaker and influencer to all your peers . You should have lived to be 150.. but your music is gonna live forever . I'm not just saying that.. but you are the only one to always make timeless songs. You were the gold standard . You made me want try and make dance music when i first heard "seek bromance" . And then u kept making feel like shit cause you kept gettin better and i couldn't even mix a snare right .. you were the best of this generation . A real superstar 🌟 I know you had your demons and maybe this wasn't the right place for you sometimes , but we need to protect true artists like you at all costs because there are not enough left and we are losing too many .. be good Tim
The remix I did of Levels hasn’t left my set since I made it back in 2011. All though we weren’t “close friends” I feel this deep sadness through the connection we had through this song. Tim was a truly a genius and an innovator, yet sensitive and humble. This industry can be rough and from a far I saw it take a tole on him. I just wish I could have hugged him more and told him it would be okay .You’re music will forever be apart of mine and so many other lives. Maybe that’s the closest thing we have to immortality. I really hope you’re essence , wherever it may be in the universe is now at peace. And if in some miracle you can see this , I hope you know that as long as human beings are alive on this planet , you will forever remain an inspiration. Thank you Tim. RIP
my sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the friends, fans and families of @Avicii 🙁 Banter aside, nobody can deny what he has accomplished and done for modern dance music and im very proud of him.

. @Avicii was talented and kind, and I was genuinely excited to see what would come next from him. His future most certainly should have been written beyond age 28. I am
Rest easy Tim.
