Swedish DJ and producer Avicii has been found dead in Oman.

The news was confirmed by his publicist today and asked that the artist’s, real name Tim Bergling, family be given time to grieve given the particularly devastating news.

The producer was an instrumental force behind the EDM movement in the mid noughties with huge tracks such as ‘Levels’ and many more that broke the genre onto widespread mainstream radio.

The producer famously retired in 2016 just after the release of his most successful work, citing health concerns as the main reason for his departure from the music industry.
