The meaning of «avicii»

Tim Bergling (Swedish: [ˈtɪmː ˈbæ̂rjlɪŋ] (listen); 8 September 1989 – 20 April 2018), known by his stage name Avicii (/əˈviːtʃi/ ə-VEE-chee, Swedish: [aˈvɪ̌tːɕɪ]), was a Swedish DJ, remixer, record producer, musician, singer, and songwriter.

At the age of 16, Bergling began posting his remixes on electronic music forums, which led to his first record deal.[2] He rose to prominence in 2011 with his single "Levels". His debut studio album, True (2013), blended electronic music with elements of multiple genres and received generally positive reviews. It peaked in the top ten in more than fifteen countries and topped international charts;[3][4][5][6] the lead single, "Wake Me Up", topped most music markets in Europe and reached number four in the United States.

In 2015, Bergling released his second studio album, Stories, and in 2017 he released an EP, Avīci (01).[7] His catalog also included the singles "I Could Be the One" with Nicky Romero, "You Make Me", "X You", "Hey Brother", "Addicted to You", "The Days", "The Nights", "Waiting for Love", "Without You" and "Lonely Together". Bergling was nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on "Sunshine" with David Guetta in 2012[8] and "Levels" in 2013. Several music publications credit Bergling as among the DJs who ushered electronic music into Top 40 radio in the early 2010s.[9][10]

Bergling retired from touring in 2016 due to health problems, having suffered from stress and poor mental health for several years.[11] On 20 April 2018, he died by suicide in Muscat, Oman. His posthumous third album, titled Tim, was released in 2019.[12]

Tim Bergling was born in Stockholm on 8 September 1989, the son of Klas Bergling and actress Anki Lidén.[13] He started mixing in his bedroom at the age of eight.[14] He had three siblings: David Bergling, Linda Sterner, and Anton Körberg. Inspired by his brother, who was also a DJ, he began making music at the age of 16.[15] In May 2007, Bergling signed on with the Dejfitts Plays label.[13] He was a member of the Laidback Luke Forums, where he refined his craft and, at times, demonstrated his distinct deep house style.[16] By 2009 to 2010, Bergling was a prolific producer and was releasing music incredibly quickly. His remixes during this period were "Sound of Now", "Muja", "Ryu" and "Even". Bergling explained that the name Avicii means "the lowest level of Buddhist hell" and he chose the moniker because his real name was already used upon creating his Myspace page.[17][18] Then, in 2010, Bergling released the hit song "Seek Bromance", which reached the top 20 in several countries, including Belgium,[19] France,[20] the Netherlands,[21] United Kingdom,[22] and Sweden.[23] He also remixed Nadia Ali's classic single "Rapture" for her album Queen of Clubs Trilogy: Onyx Edition. In October 2010, Bergling signed with the European A&R team with EMI Music Publishing.[24]
