When Avicii received an honorary award at the 2019 Grammis gala, the late producer’s father, Klas Bergling, was there to accept the posthumous award on his son’s behalf. A Swedish version of the American Grammy Awards ceremony, the Grammis were hosted in Stockholm on Feb. 7.

“As Tim’s father, I am very honored to receive this great prize,” Bergling reads the Swedish Aftonbladet newspaper’s translation of his acceptance speech on behalf of his son. “Tim was a friendly person with humor and very serious, humble, and stubborn as sin. When it came to the music, he was on the verge of obsessed to reach the optimal he had imagined.”

“He was a shy person who didn’t want to be in the center and he had a hard time with the official role,” Bergling added. “He had a need to withdraw, and peace, and find himself–something that many of us probably recognize.”

Klas Bergling concluded the acceptance speech through tears with an address to his son. “Tim,” Bergling said, “we think your music will live and continue to delight people.”

Avicii’s 2019 Grammis acknowledgement is not his first Grammis award; he previously won a Grammis in 2012 for his landmark production, “Levels.”

Avicii: True Stories documentary is now on Netflix

This post was originally published on this site

Avicii: True Stories, a documentary about the Swedish superstar’s career, has officially released on Netflix in the US, UK, and Australia. Its initial debut in October 2017 — just six months before his death — was limited to Netflix users in Western Europe and a few Scandinavian movie theaters. Months later, people thought the streaming service may have taken it down given the circumstances. However, according to an interview between The Guardian and its director, that wasn’t the case:

“The film was never supposed to have a wider release back then. What happened was people tried to watch the movie in the US and UK and couldn’t find it. So, they ran with the story that it had been pulled.”

Directed by Levan Tsikyrishvili, who spent four years following the DJ/producer, the documentary tells the story of Avicii‘s career from the beginning. It includes an inside look on his rise to fame, personal life, health struggles, creative process, hectic touring schedule, and interviews with friends and celebrity DJs alike (including David Guetta, Tiesto, and more). It also includes remarks from Tim Bergling himself.

In a press release for its initial launch, Tsikurishvili described the influence behind his creation:

“I wanted to do a brutally honest film about Tim as a person and not only about Avicii. Everybody knows Avicii but very few people know Tim. I think this documentary really shows Tim’s struggle and strength of character. Being a worldwide superstar artist is not as easy as it looks on Instagram.”

Tim Bergling passed away on April 20, 2018 at the age of 28. Avicii: True Stories is now available in the US, UK, Australia, and other regions via Netflix.

There’s a new duo in town. LA-based BRKLYN continues to become a strong force heading into 2019. Cameron Alexander and Cody Nadeau kicked off the year with a remix of “Everybody Hates Me” from The Chainsmokers Sick Boy project, garnering enough traction for a Sirius XM Cookout Mix on Diplo’s Revolution. From there, it was all about increasing creativity, leading toward a 5-track debut EP released on Tritonal‘s Enhanced Music imprint. With their first full body of work, BRKLYN earned a spot on Dancing Astronaut‘s Radar mix series.

The mix will lift some spirits and bring back nostalgic memories, thanks to BRKLYN’s seamless mashing of historic dance tracks with hits of present day styles. Kicking off with their EP’s first official single “Good Vibe” featuring label-mate Zack Martino, the mix quickly descends into Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” dropped into Kaskade. Other highlights include a heartfelt Avicii feature on “Silhouettes” mashed with Martin Garrix‘s recently released “Yottabyte,” and an early Chainsmokers vocal from ROZES layered perfectly over Porter Robinson‘s “Divinity.” The duo also includes some new tracks from the EP, including a collaboration with Disco Fries on “Brightside.”

BRKLYN’s Things I’ve Learned EP is out now and they’ll provide direct support for Audien at Academy LA and Metropolitan in New Orleans NYE weekend.
