Avicii

The top Swedish DJ/producer/dance guru first came to fame as an 18-year-old remixing tracks in his own bedroom in Stockholm. Growing up listening to a wide variety of music he got into house music as a result of the influence of the Swedish House Mafia and Eric Prydz, he was signed to EMI and had his first international hit in 2010 with Seek. Other major hits swiftly followed, notably My Feelings For You, along with remixes of tracks like DJ Tiesto, Robyn and Bob Sinclair. Much in demand for studio work, he had another massive hit in 2011 with Levels, including an Etta James vocal sample, which broke into the Top 10 in 15 different countries and won a Grammy nomination for his David Guetta collaboration Sunshine. Further hits included Silhouettes and I Could Be The One and in 2013 he released his debut album True, including collaborations with Nile Rodgers, country star Mac Davis and American rock band Incubus. It included his massive global hit Wake Me Up which, featuring vocals by Aloe Blacc, topped the charts in ten different countries. Other hits that quickly followed include You Make Me, Hey Brother, Addicted To You and Lay Me Down.
