Avicii dominated Spotify charts over the weekend as fans flocked to remember the Swedish DJ and producer, who died on Friday aged 28.

Avicii, the stage name of Tim Bergling, was not a first-out-the-door pioneer of electronic dance music - or EDM - a scene that has exploded since the turn of the century and a year ago was worth $7.4 billion, according to a study by the industry's International Music Summit in Ibiza. "The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this hard time". "No further public statement will be given".

A cause of death has yet to be released.

Avicii had in the past suffered acute pancreatitis, in part due to excessive drinking.

"I will however never let go of music", he concluded.

Giuliani had a notable career as a federal prosecutor before he became mayor of NY in 1994, a position he held until 2001. Trump said in a statement that Giuliani "wants to get this matter quickly resolved".

In order to protect Tim Bergling, aka Avicii's, privacy, there's not much the resort can say at this time - other than send their warm wishes to his close friends and family. Bergling broke into the scene back in the late '00s as part of the same wave that saw the rose of Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and the Swedish House Mafia.

At the time of writing, it had accumulated more than 1.4 billion views on YouTube. He had to cancel shows in 2014 after having his gallbladder and appendix removed.

Avicii said his more than 800 shows had taken a toll on him, added to his anxiety and drawn him to a life of partying. "From that point, I started mentally not wanting to associate myself with EDM", he told Rolling Stone magazine in September. "That life can look exciting and glamorous on Instagram and social media, but you don't really have any idea what's going on behind that". "So yeah, it's been a lot better than I expected". He recently announced that he'd begun work on new music.

Sweden's Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, who knew Avicii from playing at their wedding, said they were saddened by his death. He was highly sought after and well regarded not only as an artist, but as a person. In 2012 and 2013, Avicii was nominated for two Grammy Awards for best dance recording.

He then played Avicii's 2017 track, Without You.
