Avicii, the Swedish producer who was one of the world's most successful DJs, was found dead today in Muscat, Oman, his publicist confirmed to NPR Music. He was 28. No cause of death was given.
Born Tim Bergling, Avicii rose to worldwide fame quickly beginning in 2011 with the release of "Levels" and earning a Grammy nomination just one year later for his David Guetta collaboration "Sunshine."
Although he never reached the top of Billboard's main album or singles charts, his work was designed to appeal to the largest audiences possible, fusing broad dance textures with pop melodics, an approach that led his song "Wake Me Up" to become the most-streamed song on Spotify at the time.
