Avicii and his Words

About his influences in the music industry, he says:

I’ve always been into music, and growing up with older siblings. I’ve also had loads of different influences when it comes to my music taste. There are loads of other people that have influenced me but I think the biggest inspirations I’ve had aside from my manager has been the Swedish House Mafia guys and Eric Prydz, they were the ones who first got me into house!

Writing music is an art but that goes hand in hand with listening to some good music.

I actually only started listening to house music around the time I started making it. I got hooked both to making music and to house music.

And also,

I have a hard time writing music when I’m on tour.

Don’t give up! It takes a long time to really get a hold of the production part and the same goes with mastering the decks.
