Arty produces beautiful track in memory of Avicii

The death of Avicii has undoubtably impacted people worldwide. Family, fans, and fellow producers have felt the untimely loss of the Swedish superstar producer, and continue to miss the incredible person that was Tim Bergling. Though his life ended much early than anyone would have ever hoped, the celebration of the Swede’s musical contributions has not stopped. From the memorial in Stockholm, to the playing of his tracks on church bells, and over 1000 singers performing ‘Wake Me Up‘, the life of Avicii has had an unrivalled impact, and the numerous displays of respect for the 28-year-old are exactly what you would expect. Aside of fans and musical communities paying their respect, his fellow producer friends have also reacted in a variety of ways. Kygo‘s special connection with his “biggest musical inspiration” is signified through the tattoo he recently got; Tiësto devoted an entire episode of Club Life to his good friend; Pete Tong‘s emotional speech at IMS last month raised awareness for other aspiring artists, stating how “we (DJs) werent supposed to die chasing the dream“. Now, Russian producer Arty has created a special track for his good friend Avicii, and it’s a truly magnificent tribute for the Swede.

Revealing the track through a Twitter video, Arty displays the track as it is captured live from one of his sets. Following the tweet, a follower responded “For Tim?” which prompted the following response from Arty:

This confirms that the friend he refers to in the tweet is infact Avicii, but also hints that the track name will be either ‘For Tim‘ or ‘Tim‘. The track is not only an incredible display of respect and love for the late Swede, but also combines the melodic influence of Tim’s music with Arty’s unique progressive house style’s to create something extremely special.
