Star 99.9. Today’s Best Mix
 

Today*s Star: Avicii

Avicii is a 24 year old Dj/Producer from Sweden. His real name is Tim Bergling and this year he was ranked #3 on the list for "Top Dj's" by DJ Magazine. Pretty impressive for a young guy who's only been living his dream for five years! In 2011, Avicii did a collaboration with fellow Dj David Guetta for the song "Sunshine." It was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Dance Recording category. Avicii's song Levels paved the way for him in the industry. He sampled vocals from Etta James on the song and it's definitely a winner!

 

In 2012 Avicii made history by being the first ever Dj to headline two shows at Radio City Music Hall, which he sold out by the way! His latest single Wake Me Up (which features Aloe Blacc on vocals) achieved him mainstream success. It became the fastest selling single in the UK, overtaking Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines!


Avicii says that he is so fortunate to be in a position where he can give back and started a charity with his manager called "House For Hunger." The charity is dedicated to alleviating global hunger.

 

Fun side note----> When Avicii hit 2 million followers on Facebook, he hooked up his fans by giving out free downloads of his song, Two Million.


Avicii has a new song out called "Hey Brother." The music video shows the comradery between two brothers and is pretty touching. Watch it below!
