I wasn't much of an Avicii fan, and I'm not much of a house music fan, but I'd still give Avicii a favourable assessment. Since I don't know a lot about house music I can't really give you an assessment of his influence (I'm sure its huge), but I can give you my opinions on his music. The production value on his songs is so dam high, its hard to imagine how he accomplished a sound like that when he was so young, but looking at his wikipedia page it looked like he had the backing of a label with other house producers so I guess he had the right people around him and access to engineers. Musically, the thing with house music for me though is it tends to sound like someone doing a drill at an entry level piano lesson. I guess Avicii tends to sound that way too, but that's 100% ok because the musicality isn't the draw in his music, it's more about the sound design, the vibe, and knowing what your audience will like. He def excelled in all three of those areas. Yesterday my gf (an Avicii fan) was showing me his stuff, and what blew me away was the number of songs I recognized that I didn't know were by him, the sheer number of megahits he has is insane, he definitely knew exactly what people wanted, and had the talent to execute it. The way he puts the vocals over his beats to pull them together into inescapable earworms is a great talent too. Its easy for vocals to come off as annoying or corny, but other than a couple of the songs I heard yesterday, his usually add a lot to the feel of the track.

Definitely lost a real 1

i saw a post on reddit saying a lot of his older works were made using pirated (FL?) plugins, i thought that was kinda funny :p

a lot of us normies were taken completely by surprise by this, did you expect this? were u familiar with his history with alcohol abuse in the past? i wonder if there's any other artists we should keep an eye on, who have suddenly stopped touring due to health issues :|

really shitty situation overall, and certainly one of the more impactful artist deaths to me personally. do you agree with the popular sentiment that he revived/reinvigorated the edm genre as a whole?
