Words can't even begin to describe how bumbed out I am that Swedish DJ Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead today.

Billboard was one of the first to break the sad news when they posted this statement by Avicii's publicist:

"It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii," his publicist Diana Baron said in a statement. "He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given."
