Lol. Already got people hating for doing a tribute… it’s a tribute. Avicii was one of my biggest influences. This is me paying my respects and letting out my sadness through music. it’s MY outlet. You would think the passing of a young legend would bring fans together. Sigh

Gutted to hear about @Avicii loved his work and tunes x

Listening back to all the Avicii songs makes me sad and happy at the same time. Especially all the shit talkers at Ultra when he dropped “Wake Me Up” makes me smile because I know Tim always followed his heart. ❤❤❤

I’ll be forever thankful for his massive support since the earliest days when I started on his record label. Later remixing his songs and playing together at the festivals & clubs. We’ve lost such an inspiring & talented artist! RIP @Avicii pic.twitter.com/4UYv70ry2j

Wow, I would like to take a moment to pay tribute to the man who really opened my eyes as to what my productions could one day sound like. @Avicii was a genius and a music innovator, and I can not believe he is no longer with us. RIP to the very best.

You set the precedent for the rest of us producers/ opened doors and set the trends . A real groundbreaker and influencer to all your peers . You should have lived to be 150.. but your music is gonna live forever . I’m not just saying that.. but you are the only one to always make timeless songs. You were the gold standard . You made me want try and make dance music when i first heard “seek bromance” . And then u kept making feel like shit cause you kept gettin better and i couldn’t even mix a snare right .. you were the best of this generation . A real superstar ? I know you had your demons and maybe this wasn’t the right place for you sometimes , but we need to protect true artists like you at all costs because there are not enough left and we are losing too many .. be good Tim
Broken hearted. Such a huge musical inspiration to me and many others. will miss you so much. Rest In Peace Avicii pic.twitter.com/AdU5UzoY90

. @Avicii was talented and kind, and I was genuinely excited to see what would come next from him. His future most certainly should have been written beyond age 28. I am
Rest easy Tim.

I have no words. I remember how amazing it was to make Lonely Together and it felt like just yesterday we were talking. Condolences to Avicii’s family, friends, and the fans who supported him. May he rest in peace. Gone too soon. I’m devastated. Heartbroken.

A day where we lost a hero of ours, an inspiration and friend. There will never ever be another like him and for that reason we cry and will never forget. We posted this video cause it is a reminder of what this brilliant amazing guy did for all of us. And now he is gone. pic.twitter.com/ObfvoSgceh

The remix I did of Levels hasn’t left my set since I made it back in 2011. All though we weren’t “close friends” I feel this deep sadness through the connection we had through this song. Tim was a truly a genius and an innovator, yet sensitive and humble. This industry can be rough and from a far I saw it take a tole on him. I just wish I could have hugged him more and told him it would be okay .You’re music will forever be apart of mine and so many other lives. Maybe that’s the closest thing we have to immortality. I really hope you’re essence , wherever it may be in the universe is now at peace. And if in some miracle you can see this , I hope you know that as long as human beings are alive on this planet , you will forever remain an inspiration. Thank you Tim. RIP
Words can not describe how I feel right now..I am gonna miss you brother ❤ pic.twitter.com/AjBgXi5gVR
