Tim Bergling (born 8 September 1989 in Stockholm, Sweden), known professionally as Avicii, Tom Hangs and Tim Berg, is a Swedish DJ, remixer, and record producer. His single “Bromance” (recorded under the pseudonym Tim Berg, has charted in the top 20 on the national single charts of Belgium, the Netherlands, and his native Sweden. A lyricized version titled “Seek Bromance” was released shortly thereafter, charting on the UK Singles Chart and reaching number one on the international Beatport chart. Other singles include “My Feelings for You,” with Sebastien Drums, “Street Dancer,” and “Tweet It,” among others. Following the success of “Bromance”, Avicii released “Levels”, which was a chart topping song in 2011. The hit continued to showcase his uplifitng house style, with clear influences from artists like Tiesto, Laidback Luke and Daft Punk.

In an interview with Forbes, he explained the origin of his name, “A friend of mine told me a bunch of stuff on Buddhism and about Avicii being the lowest level of Buddhist hell and it just sort of got stuck in my head. Later on when I went to setup a MySpace, I tried a bunch of names and they were all taken so I just kind of ended up with Avicii and then I got really attached to it.”
