Avicii 原名Tim Bergling，1989年9月8日出生于瑞典的斯德哥尔摩省。2008年，不满20岁的Avicii开始尝试为游戏(Commodore 64)制作主题曲，这促使他创作出了自己的第一支单曲《Lazy Lace》，该曲在Strike Recordings发行后立刻引起轰动，只是牛刀小试的瑞典少年得到了众多新老DJ的称赞，他们惊讶这位18岁年轻人的处子作居然如此专业和迎合时代潮流。
很快，Avicii被英国老牌House天王Pete Tong注意。在前辈的力邀下，Avicii的第二首单曲《Manman》在Pete Tong的节目(First Trax)当中成为主打，超过七成的听众支持率让Bergling一下子成为炙手可热的明日之星，这首作品顺势被Pete Tong拿来发行在自己的厂牌Bedroom Bedlam下。Pete Tong的力荐对Avicii来说可谓一个重要的转折，让他一下子从混沌的卧房制作人集团中脱颖而出，加上从2008年逐渐升温的瑞典效应，给了这位后生迅速成长所需要的一切外部优势。随着《Manman》的走红，他得到了更多优质的合约：澳洲老牌House大厂Vicious Grooves将其视为门下至宝，Armada加盟音乐公司Zouk给了他更多站上主流舞台的机会，就连老东家Strike Recordings也调转船头集结Avicii早期作品重新发行。众多的机会当中，Vicious Grooves的历练赐予他成为House未来巨星的潜质，从2008年末开始，包括《Even》《Sound Of Now》《Ryu-Strutnut》《My Feelings For You》等在内多首在Beatport上打榜的作品让他积累起不少人气，不到两年的时间，Avicii俨然成为Vicious Grooves最高产艺人。
2010年，这位准90后开始和瑞典知名制作人John Dahlbck合作，不但联合发行了单曲《Don't Hold Back》，而且还共同推出了一张混音专辑《Super You & Me - Vol 01》，他的大热单曲《Levels》也获得了世界舞曲连续17周排行第一共18周的惊人成绩。此外，他也获得了与瑞典三杰之一的Sebastian Ingrosso、荷兰DJ天王Tiesto亲密接触的机会。也是在这一年，凭借极高的人气，他首次出现在DJ Mag世界百大DJ排行榜上，第38名的成绩让他成为Top 40当中年龄最小的成员。在2011年百大DJ榜单中Avicii名列第6，在2012年百大DJ榜单中Avicii名列第3，在2013年百大DJ榜单中蝉联季军，这也是对Avicii充分的肯定。在2014年百大DJ榜单中他跌至了第六名。
