What Avicii and his manager Ash Pournouri have managed in a few years is astonishing. Beginning his career at 18, the self-taught, fresh-faced Swede that is Avicii has had greater success at 22 than most could ever hope for in a lifetime. With chart-toppers as Seek Bromance, My Feelings For You, Fade into Darkness, Silhouettes and LE7ELS, Avicii has since 2008 risen from bedroom music-maker to international superstar. He has headlined Ultra Music Festival with Madonna, completed a $1 million charity tour, done an exclusive collaboration with Ralph Lauren: Denim & Supply and embarked one of the biggest EDM arena tour to date already in 2012, and Avicii now stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the most in-demand and elite artists on the planet.
From the beginning, Avicii has sculpted fresh, innovative electronic music. Not getting caught up in the particularities of sub-genres and trends, he continues to deliver track after track of original and blissful music. Already In April 2008, Avicii won Pete Tong’s fiercely competitive ‘Fast Trax’, and his first notable hit Manman was signed to Pete’s label, ‘Bedroom Bedlam’ – a big achievement for a teenager. Since then, the chart toppers have kept coming.
2012 has seen the Swede skyrocket. Kicking the year off with their unique ‘House for Hunger’ tour, Avicii and Ash personally donate a staggering $1million to the organization ‘Feeding America’, by doing a not-for-profit 27 stops tour in the U.S.
Next to follow was the worldwide release of his next single Silhouettes, the announcement of his forthcoming collaboration with fashion guru Ralph Lauren and a headline performance with pop goddess Madonna on Miami’s Ultra Music Festival. Masterminded by Ash and after almost a year in the making, Avicii unleashed a 35-foot flying head with full LED mapping on the Coachella crowd. Since then it’s been transported across North America on one of the biggest arena tours ever undertaken by an electronic artist – Avicii’s LE7ELS Arena Tour.
It's been a super-busy 12 months for Avicii. And considering he only started touring this year, it's not hard to see why.
"My management finally let me out!" he grins.
And what a year of living the dream it has proven to be for the young Swede. "I've fulfilled so many aspirations - headlined for Sensation, played main stages at festivals, been doing great studio work for solo stuff still to come out," says Avicii, aka Tim Bergling. "I've remixed so many big artists and collaborated with Tiësto and Sebastian Ingrosso to name a couple, plus had worldwide hits with two different tracks."
Since he's been set free to trot the globe, he's been able to bounce creativity off some of his most admired producers.
"I've exchanged ideas and experiences with so many talented artists to whom I'm so grateful."
His next big plans are for the release of his solo work.
"All I can say is, this year is not over and we have great dreams still to realise!"
