Avicii

Introduced to dance music through his older brother's collection of classic house and techno tracks, Tim Bergling started making remixes in his bedroom at 18, posting them on online music blogs. His reputation quickly spread across the dancefloors of his native Sweden before Tiesto recruited him for a residency at Ibiza nightclub Privilege and Pete Tong put out his first single Manman in 2008. His collaboration Sunshine with David Guetta became one of the club anthems of 2011 and was nominated for a Grammy Award, but he came to mainstream attention when his track Fade Into Darkness was sampled by Leona Lewis on her hit single Collide. Inspired by the synth pop of Daft Punk, deep house of Eric Prydz and the crossover appeal of Swedish House Mafia, Levels became his first big hit and I Could Be The One topped the UK charts. Featuring Aloe Blacc, Wake Me Up then became a worldwide smash, topping the charts in 22 countries. Incorporating more funk, disco and soul influences, debut album True (2013) confirmed his status as an electro superstar in the making, reaching Number 5 in the US and producing further hits in You Make Me and Hey Brother.
