Tim Bergling Net Worth:- Avicii, a well-known and wealthy Swedish DJ and music producer, died in 2018 with a net worth of $50 million. His 2011 hit “Levels” launched him to fame. Hi Brother, Addicted to You, The Days, The Nights, and Waiting for Love were all hit singles. Many music magazines regard Avicii as one of the first DJs to push electronic music into the Top 40.
Tim Bergling was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on September 8, 1989, to Klas Bergling and Anki Liden. Tim, the youngest of the Berglings’ three children, started mixing in his room at the age of eight. Inspired by his DJ-ing elder brother, he started producing music professionally at 16. In May 2007, he joined Dejfitts Plays. Simultaneously, he worked with the Laidback Luke Forums, developing his deep house sound.
Avicii’s major musical breakthrough occurred at the age of 18. The breakthrough came in the shape of a remix of “Lazy Jones” on the Commodore 64. The excitement created by this song led to his first record contract with Strike! Recordings and his debut single, “Lazy Lace.”
Bergling was a prolific producer and producing songs rapidly by 2009. “Sound of Now,” “Muja,” “Ryu,” and “Even” was remixed at this time. His stage moniker is Avicii, which he explains signifies “the lowest level of Buddhist hell.” His actual name was already taken when he created his Myspace profile. In 2010, he released “Seek Bromance,” which hit the top 20 in France, Belgium, and the UK. EMI Music Publishing then signed him.
Avicii’s popularity grew rapidly after that. “Sunshine” featuring David Guetta was nominated for a Grammy. His tour started in 2010 and spanned the globe. His 2011 single “Levels” samples Etta James’ 1962 soul classic “Something’s Got a Hold on Me”. “Levels” by Avicii hit #1 in Sweden and was certified 8x platinum.
Skrillex, Cazzette, and Noise Inc have all remixed the song. Bergling’s “Levels” was a Grammy nominee for Best Dance Recording. On August 4, 2012, he performed at the Lollapalooza event at Grant Park. The following month, he became the first DJ to play two sold-out performances at New York’s legendary Radio City Music Hall. Bergling debuted several new songs at the Lights All Night event in Dallas in December of that year, some of which made it onto his first album.
