Avicii - Swedish House Superstar

5 years ago

I can`t believe how young this guy is and how popular he has become. It truly shows how sometimes people can become international superstars overnight, what do you guys think?

One of the big success stories of the last few of years in dance music has been the rise of Avicii.

He only first emerged onto the dance music scene in 2008 at the age of 18 years old and was immediately signed to Strike Recordings for his remix of the theme song to the 80`s video game, Lazy Jones. He then won Pete Tong`s Fast Track competition on BBC Radio 1 with 70% of the total votes and had his track `Manman` released on Tong`s Bedroom Bedlam label later that year, which led to international recognition in the DJ community.

In 2010, Avicii embarked on his first world tour, primarily encompassing North America and Western Europe where he played across the major festival circuit and gained a great deal of attention. So much so that that same year he was signed onto a major recording label, EMI, which is something that very few dance music artists are able to accomplish.

He has now worked on tracks with some of the industries biggest names, such as David Guetta and Tiesto. The track he worked on with Guetta titled "Sunshine" went on to be nominated for a Grammy in 2011 for Best Dance Recording.

His career has just been skyrocketing as he moved all the way up to 6th in 2011 from 39th place in 2010 in the DJ Mag Top 100, and it appears as if nothing can stop this Swedish House phenom from continuing to take the world by storm for many years to come.

In the future he is looking to began encompassing added effects and features to his current live mixing performances as he feels that the dance music scene is looking to shift into giving an all-inclusive show style of performance to the crowds.
