Avicii has opened up about his thoughts on EDM in a new interview.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about whether the era of the genre is over, he said, ”EDM started getting oversaturated four, five, six years ago, when money became everything.

“From that point, I started mentally not wanting to associate myself with EDM.

“Now that I have more time in the studio, I want to learn as much about other genres as possible.

“That’s what I love the most – having a session with Nile Rodgers, for instance, and getting an understanding of music that’s invaluable.”

DJ Mag revealed in June that Avicii has been enlisted by Rock Hall of Famer Nile Rodgers to help produce the forthcoming Chic album.

To celebrate Avicii’s birthday last week (Friday 8th September), DJ Mag counted down our 10 favourite Avicii moments.

That was after Avicii launched his Avicii FM show earlier this month (September).
