I always just sit down at the piano and make the main hook—what I want the track to be about melodically—and then I’ll build everything else around that. But growing up, I did not play any instruments.

Avicii

I'm good at melody - I'll write the top-line melody and ideal words I want to go with it. But I'm not that good at writing lyrics. I bounce those back and forth with songwriters or someone who can sing.

Avicii

I grew up listening to a lot of Ray Charles and '60s rock, thanks to my father, and then my brothers got me in to KISS and whatnot, so I guess that's where I got my first taste for music.

Avicii

Life's a game made for everyone and love is the prize. So wake me up when it's all over - when I'm wiser and I'm older. All this time I was finding myself and I didn't know I was lost.

Avicii

I travel with a bunch of battery packs because I don't always have time to charge my phone at the hotel room when I'm traveling. I always change them, so I never run out of battery.

Avicii

I've always worn a lot of Ralph Lauren, and plaid shirts in general have been a signature piece for me. With plaid, you can look super-relaxed or you can look a bit dressed up.

Avicii

I've always had a fascination with making your own music but never have been skilled enough to play the instrument, so to be able to make music without the ability was awesome.

Avicii

To me, I'm always trying to look for the energy, to imagine in being played on the dance floor. I guess that's the most important thing in making music for me.

Avicii

House music originated in America, and it has always been around, but I guess it just got a tighter hold on Europe and other parts of the world.

Avicii

There's always haters, no matter what you're doing - whether they're complaining that everything you do sounds the same, or it's too different.

Avicii

I have always been mainstream. It's so weird, because I don't see it as something negative at all. So many people see it as something negative.

Avicii

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.

Avicii

When I started working on electronic music, that was after the rave period. I haven't even seen that part of it that much.

Avicii

I've always been a producer - that's how I see myself first. The DJing came second as a way for me to be able to perform.

Avicii

I would never lay down a pre-programmed set and perform to a pre-mixed CD; I would never cheat my fans like that.

Avicii

I think I am a pretty good judge of character in general and try to surround myself with the best people I can.

Avicii

My dad has always been a big Ray Charles fan, and I've grown up listening to all kinds of music.

Avicii

I love DJing, I do. I love everything that comes with it; it's fun and it's kind of glamorous.

Avicii

It's hard - some people get inspired by a feeling, but I'm mostly inspired by melodies.

Avicii

I make sure to use both Twitter and Facebook a lot which helps me connect to the fans.

Avicii

When I started out, I was Avici with one i. But on MySpace, that name was taken.

Avicii

People in Sweden are very conscious of what people are saying about you.

Avicii

Dance music is like a virus, it has affected so many different genres.

Avicii

I tried carrying the weight of the world. But I only have two hands.

Avicii

Life's a game made for everyone, and love is the prize.

Avicii

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

Avicii

I'm a DJ. I get the party started.

Avicii

When it comes to electronic music, I started listening to a lot of Daft Punk, way before I knew what house music was, and then progressed into a lot of Steve Angello, Eric Prydz, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Laidback Luke.

Avicii

If I wanted to make a quick buck, there's far easier ways of doing it. What I want is to provoke people. If you want a hit song, all you need to do is rewrite an old song. It might have been proven to work, but you won't be remembered the same way.
