April 20, 2018 will forever be marked as a dark day in music history. One of the dance music’s biggest contemporary pioneers, Avicii, passed away at only 28 years-old following a prolific legacy that saw him help import the genre into the mainstream.

He inspired a countless amount of artists throughout his career, many of which we see dominating the main stage today. Not to mention, his influence can be felt heavily among the newer generations of dance fans. He stayed innovating until the very end as well, continuing to release new music after his retirement from touring that mashed up genres in ways previously thought impossible.

Naturally, his peers and admirers have taken to Twitter to express their condolences.
