Rewind in time back to 2012 as the global dance charts were topped by singles from Porter Robinson (‘Language’), Swedish House Mafia (‘Don’t You Worry Child’), Alesso (‘Years’), Zedd (‘Clarity’), and many more. However, one Swedish artist was staking his claim as one of the most promising rising artists with releases like ‘Levels’, ‘Seek Bromance’, ‘Fade Into Darkness’, and more. Avicii became a household name within the electronic dance music scene with the release of his single ‘Levels’ which gained over 500,000,000 streams worldwide. How does one follow up on such an iconic single? It’s not easy, but Avicii seemed to enjoy that challenge because, on the 27th of April, 2012, he released the incredible single ‘Silhouettes’.
4 years ago, on April 20th, 2018, the entire electronic dance music industry along with its fans stood still as news broke regarding the unfortunate passing of Swedish legend Avicii. An icon and a role model to many, no one wanted to believe this news could be true as Avicii was posting on his social media mere days before. His music and releases over the years have left a lasting memory in our hearts and he will forever stay in our minds and playlists
