Episode 45 - Avicii
Date: Dec 27, 2010 (Monday)
It's only been a couple of short years since 21-year-old Swede Tim Berg remixed an old Commodore 64 tune, gained some internet notoriety,and then rocketed to the tops of the international house charts. Avicii, as he is now known, has earned himself a spot among the top 100 DJs in the world.
His "Lazy Lace" remix found its way to At Night Management, who signed Avicii and eventually got him on Vicious Vinyl and Ministry of Sound. In time, DJs like Laidback Luke and Dirty South were calling Bergling the "breakout artist of 2009." Having now worked with Robyn, Axwell, and megastar Tiësto, Avicii is well on his way to becoming one of the major luminaries of global dance music.
Coming up in the new year on The Untz Podcast, guests will include UK's dubstep newcomer Fabian, simply destroying playcounts on SoundCloud. Also, the West Coast's brooding downtempo master Emancipator, and quirky indie-beatster Hot Sugar AKA Nick Koenig. Stay tuned!
