Avicii remembered on one-year death anniversary; Swedish DJ's new single S.O.S released

Fans and peers paid tribute and remembered Avicii on the late Swedish DJ's first death anniversary on 20 April. Messages and prayers began pouring in on the day, with most noting how Avicii (real name, Tim Bergling) was still missed.

Avicii was found dead in his hotel room in Oman, Muscat on 20 April, 2018.

The artist's personal official Twitter handle carried a black and white image of Tim, with one of his own quotes from 2018, which read — "Spread positivity through my music, in message and enjoy success but not materialistic success."

Fellow DJ, Carnage, wrote a short simple message for Avicii.

PM:AM recordings said they would release the music that Bergling was working on before his passing. Titled 'S.O.S', it will be the first track to be released from the album ‘Tim'.

Sharing a studio image of them together, record producer and song-writer Nile Rodgers wrote that Tim would always "have a special place" in his heart.

A billboard depicting Avicii's signature logo along with a line "Tim Bergling 1989- Forever" was put up on the occasion as well.

All of that reflects in our art," says Encore, one half of Seedhe Maut.

How 'genres', once considered reductive in music, are undergoing tectonic shifts today

In the playlist-driven world of today, where songs are tagged and heard by mood, genres seem to be becoming increasingly irrelevant, particularly during the compositional process.
