A friend of mine told me a bunch of stuff on Buddhism and about Avicii being the lowest level of Buddhist hell, and it just sort of got stuck in my head. Later on when I went to setup a MySpace, I tried a bunch of names and they were all taken so I just kind of ended up with Avicii and then I got really attached to it.Avicii
There’s always so much music around me now, it seems like everything has to be something with music, so in my spare time I try not to listen to anything. It’s so hard for me to listen to something without trying to see a benefit in it: ‘Maybe I’ll make my own version of that track or maybe I’ll do this or that.’Avicii

Originality is definitely missing from EDM. There are people looking for it and exploring but I feel it’s so big now it is just getting milked. House music is losing all its melody as it becomes more about how dirty the drop is and how energetic it is. It loses touch with what music really is.Avicii
