Around the world, tributes have been pouring in for Tim Bergling who was better known under his perfomance name of Avicii, after it emerged that last week that he had passed away suddenly at the age of 28. His first major hit “Levels” was released in 2011 which reached the top 10 in over 17 countries in and around Europe. We at Pacemaker are saddened to hear this news, especially as we too are based in Stockholm where Tim was born, but we know his music will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come across the world. 💔
A significant number of people in the Pacemaker community have left their own tributes releasing mixtapes celebrating his work in bringing electronic dance music to the mainstream. We’d like to share these with you below:
