No words can describe the sadness I’m feeling right now, hearing about Avicii passing away….–
Thoughts go out to his family and friends…

The remix I did of Levels hasn’t left my set since I mad it back in 2011. All though we weren’t “close friends” I feel this deep sadness through the connection we had through this song. Tim was a truly a genius and an innovator, yet sensitive and humble. This industry can be rough and from a far I saw it take a tole on him. I just wish I could have hugged him more and told him it would be okay .You’re music will forever be apart of mine and so many other lives. Maybe that’s the closest thing we have to immortality. I really hope you’re essence , wherever it may be in the universe is now at piece. And if in some miracle you can see this , I hope you know that as long as human beings are alive on this planet , you will forever remain an inspiration. Thank you Tim. RIP
RIP @Avicii you will be insanely missed…my deepest condolences to his family.

Something really horrible happened. We lost a friend with such a beautiful heart and the world lost an incredibly talented musician. Thank you for your beautiful melodies, the time we shared in the studio, playing together as djs or just enjoying life as friends.

You set the precedent for the rest of us producers/ opened doors and set the trends . A real groundbreaker and influencer to all your peers . You should have lived to be 150.. but your music is gonna live forever . I’m not just saying that.. but you are the only one to always make timeless songs. You were the gold standard . You made me want try and make dance music when i first heard “seek bromance” . And then u kept making feel like shit cause you kept gettin better and i couldn’t even mix a snare right .. you were the best of this generation . A real superstar — I know you had your demons and maybe this wasn’t the right place for you sometimes , but we need to protect true artists like you at all costs because there are not enough left and we are losing too many .. be good Tim
I spent a day in the studio and he took a song that nobody else understood and brought it to life. He was very sick, came straight from the hospital, sweating with discomfort but didn’t complain. It was a great experience and I’ll always be grateful to share that level of creativity and passion with someone who had such an understanding of what made people happy-he really cares about the lyrics but then knew how to make people come together and let go. RIP @avicii we will all miss you ??
My heartfelt condolences to Tim’s family and close friends. I can’t express how deeply sad I am. Meeting him changed my life. He was an amazingly talented person and it hurts so bad that he’s gone.

I am deeply saddened to hear the news of ?Avicii?’s passing. Tim was such a humble, kind and beautiful soul. As a dance music icon, he touched the lives of millions around the world, and broke down barriers between genres like dance music and country. He helped our culture make an impact on the mainstream that will never be forgotten. I send my sincere condolences to his family, friends, fans and loved ones, and we will forever keep his memory and his music alive and in our hearts. Tim, have an amazing journey. We’ll see you on the other side. We love you. –??–
Just landed on the West Coast and received this very sad news. Tim was like a little brother to me. In my darkest hour, I went to Sweden and he was there for me and we found light in great conversation and in music. He will be forever be missed.
