Wow. Avicii has died at the young age of 28, according to his rep.

Two years after his unusually early retirement, the Swedish DJ was found dead on a visit to the Gulf kingdom's capital Muscat, a statement said without specifying a cause.

"Two autopsies were carried out, one yesterday and one today and we absolutely confirmed that there is no criminal suspicion in the death", the source with Oman's Royal Police told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The Swedish star, whose real name was Tim Bergling, scored two United Kingdom number one singles and had collaborated with artists including Madonna and Coldplay.

A statement from Avicii's publicist revealed that the EDM legend was found dead on April 20 in Muscat, Oman.

Avicii was best known for his singles Wake Me Up, Hey Brother and Levels. Later that night at Coachella, Norwegian superstar Kygo paid tribute to the late musician.

His death comes just days after he was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for top dance/electronic album for his EP Avicii (01).

Avicii had previously been open about his chronic health issues, having had both his appendix and gallbladder removed after being struck down with acute pancreatitis - brought on partly by excessive alcohol consumption - aged just 21 during a U.S. tour.

"Avicii was my biggest musical inspiration and he was the reason I started making electronic music".
