After the tragic news of Avicii’s death yesterday the world is still in shock. Multiple other DJs and producers, such as Martin Garrix and fellow Swedes Alesso and Swedish House Mafia sent out their condolences and thoughts about Tim’s decease. Aged only 28, Avicii will always be remembered for his amazing and humble personality. To honor Avicii’s legacy, his music, that made so many people around the world dance in happiness and served as inspiration and motivation for all kinds of artists, Swedish based Spotify decided to do something special.
Once you open Spotify on any device or your PC, a dedicated This Is Avicii playlist will pop up. Next to his biggest and most known tracks like ‘Levels’, ‘Hey Brother‘ and ‘Wake Me Up’ there are also a lot of less known yet still stunning tracks in this special playlist.

One of Avicii’s most iconic tracks, ‘Seek Bromance’, released in 2010 under his older alias Tim Berg is also a must in this playlist.
