“Wake Me Up” and “Levels” producer dies in Oman, though cause of death has yet to be revealed, according to the Rolling Stones Magazine.
Tim Bergling, the Swedish EDM DJ and producer knowned as Avicii died on friday at 28, his representative confirmed.
“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” the musician’s rep wrote in a statement. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”
One of EDM’s most popular acts, Bergling found crossover success with his 2011 hit “Levels,” an Etta James-sampling smash that went platinum in the United States and topped the singles charts in dozens of countries. “Wake Me Up” followed two years later, with the Aloe Blacc-featuring single peaking at Number Four on the Hot 100.
