Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, was a Swedish musician, DJ, remixer and record producer. At 16, Bergling began posting his remixes on electronic music forums, which led to his first record deal.Despite retiring from touring back in March of 2016, 2017 has still been an important year for DJ, producer and songwriter Avicii. Real name Tim Bergling, the Swedish superstar released his comeback EP — titled ‘Avīci’ — last month which featured collaborations with AlunaGeorge, Billy Raffoul, Vargas & Lagola and Sandro Cavazza.
But it’s not just his own material Avicii has been busy working on since he quit life on the road. He’s also been in the studio with disco legend Nile Rodgers working on Chic’s comeback album, which is expected to be released early next year.
