Today is a very exciting post because it's not only about me and my boring life.. it's actually what this blog was supposed to be about, EDM. Jasmine (aka Swevicii) kindly helped me and she is gonna talk about the person that I guess you could say introduced me and Jasmine, Avicii. I'm so happy and hype she helped me. She sent me this the 7th of November and it took me up to nw to post it.... shame on me. But anyways.... such life sometimes.
And if you wanna know about my personal life because I haven't blogged in a while I will do that soon. I do still have bad days and okay days but in general it's better than it was. I don't know what else to say but I will update you guys more now.... or at least try. If you want me to blog about any topic in specific, just let me know in any way and I'll do my best to make you guys happy. But enough about that and more about what you came for; here is Swevicii's post. Enjoy!
"Today it is november 7th 2016. In the world of Avicii this year has been a turning point. Tim Bergling has retired from being a DJ to focus on himself and his main interests; being happy and producing music. A good choice that I am very proud of!
How did it lead up to this point, with the retirement? I have been listening to Tim’s production since Fade into Darkness and it is still my favorite to this day. Back then he was not a household name (no pun intended) but merely well known in the electronic dance music scene before it became mainstream. In the late 2012 he began to produce his first ever album. The single for the album True was Wake Me Up. Two days after I graduated senior high school it was released. I came in contact with other fans and that is how my Twitter account @Swevicii came to be. At first people came to me and asked me if I could translate interviews, articles and so on. When the Wake Me Up wagon really took off during the summer of 2013 a community started to form; the Aviciifamily. It was because more people started listening to Tim’s production and they eventually became friends. At the most I think I got 200 new followers daily.
Even if it has been more than three years I look back at the experience with happiness and warmth. I am so lucky to have met the wonderful people within this community. Even if the days of Avicii are gone, the days of Tim Bergling have just started. It is hard to say what is going to happen now with this community but one thing is certain; we are one. Everybody may not be the best of friends but that is also part life. If you like Tim’s production you are already part of the community in spirit.
After the very hectic touring Tim decided to retire. He was doing so many shows it was inhumane to watch him go on, and on, and on. His body started to get affected and eventually he realized the best thing to do was to retire. Tim started this whole journey by producing music and I believe that is where his core interest lies. It was fun to be part of this journey and I am excited for what is to come.
So me and Jasmine hope you enjoyed this post. Don't forget that I love you guys and there are people who care, just don't be afraid to reach out to them. Listen to music and keep raving. Have a lovely week and we will talk more soon.
