DJ and music producer Avicii dies, aged 28

Publicists have confirmed that Swedish DJ Avicii was found dead in Muscat, Oman overnight.

'The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this hard time. Baron said no further statements would be released.

This won't be the usually informative article because, at the moment, there is no more information about that. Calvin Harris, Marshmello, Charlie Puth and more DJ's and music stars are expressing their condolences on social media.

"Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the US with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way", he wrote.

Avicii's father, Klas Bergling, is a big Ray Charles fan. "Here's to Avicii the music and the memories". He responded, "Oh they've definitely influenced me a lot". It also helped shape much of the dance music still dominating the Top 40 today, paving the way for country-EDM crossovers like Bebe Rexha's "Meant to Be" and Hailee Steinfeld's "Let Me Go".

While Bergling was known for having a prolific work ethic on the road, he also suffered from serious health problems.

Avicci signed with the Defjitts Plays label in 2007. The track, which features uncredited vocals from Swedish singer Noonie Bao, also topped the charts in Hungary and entered the top ten in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Ireland. In October 2010, he signed with the European A&R team with EMI Music Publishing.

"Condolences to Avicii's household, pals, and the followers who supported him".

Was Avicii trying to say that he was depressed? I started producing when I was 16. "Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and all who were touched by his talents." .

The two stopped working together in December 2016.

The Chic star and producer broke down in tears when hearing the news of Avicii's death, he revealed in a series of posts on Twitter on Friday evening. Just previous year, he released a collaborative track featuring singer Rita Ora.

Avicii grew up with siblings Anton, Linda and David in Stockholm.

"No more statements will be made".

"I needed to figure out my life". He quit touring in 2016 but continued making music in the studio. In it, promoters are seen trying to convince him to continue touring, even though he is in obvious physical pain.
