As 2010 draws to an unavoidable close after what can only be described as a grand year for House music, one Swedish producer has shown the world the epic force that one young producer can create under two very distinct but fundamental monikers. Hitting the high notes with ‘My Feelings For you’ and an epic remodel of the iiO club classic ‘Rapture’ as Avicii whilst taking to the global charts with his essential Autumn offering alongside Amanda Wilson for ‘Seek Bromance’, Tim Berg has emerged a true champion of global Dance music for 2010.
At 21, Tim Berg has hit heights that many aspiring producers could only dream of. Despite his young age, Berg has emerged himself entirely into his calling, using 2010 as his first year of touring to take the essential uplifting vibes of Avicii to the global industry. Reflecting on his most productive year to date, Berg explained: ‘2010 has been a great year for me. I just started touring this year so there have been an eventful couple of months with lots of new experiences and I have had great fun in the process.’
Emerging from the House-fertile capital of Stockholm, the budding producer has seen his tracks celebrated across the globe, including a no.13 spot on the UK Charts, 3 in the UK Dance Charts and a no.1 spot on the Beatport charts for his uplifting vocal offering ‘Seek Bromance’. Adding to this, Berg has seen his earlier collaboration alongside Sebastien Drums ‘My Feelings For You’ gain an incredible reception across the globe, which finally saw its UK release earlier this week. Discussing his personal highlights for this memorable year, Berg said: ‘I think my personal highlights were playing Sensation in St Petersburg and getting play listed on BBC Radio One with my tracks’ Bromance’ and ‘My Feelings For You’ with Sebastien Drums, as that was a great achievement for me and I am so happy my music has been so well received across Europe.’
Whilst gaining incredible support for his own work, Berg also saw his name in the Beatport no.1 spot in his remix of ii0’s 2002 club anthem ‘Rapture’ for Nadia Ali’s essential remix project ‘The Queen of Clubs Trilogy: Onyx Edition’. Donning his signature sound to the epic track alongside Ali’s breath-taking vocals, Berg brought together his fresh and uplifting sound and the deep and euphoric vibes of what has proven to be a history piece for commercial Dance music. He explained: ‘My manager got in touch with Nadia because he had heard she was doing a remix album. He asked for a massive anthem and we got exactly that!’
Berg added: ‘ “Rapture” is one of my all-time favourite House tracks and so I really enjoyed doing this remix for her, it was great to see it chart once again for this generation of House lovers to hear.’
With so much gained for this exciting year of epic shows and ground-breaking House bangers, 2011 looks even more promising for the fresh face of Sweden’s vital House entourage. Berg explained: ‘I have lots of new solo stuff coming up in the New Year, as well as a couple of collaborations with Tiesto! I can’t really say too much about the solo stuff just yet but it is going to be really interesting to see people’s reactions to the tracks, especially this exciting collaboration!’
As Stockholm’s unstoppable new House talent continues to spread his elevating House sound across the globe under this duo of essential monikers, it is clear that there is to be no limit to the young producer’s potential and he remains a sure indication of hope for the future generations of aspiring House talent. After all: age is only a number and music this good lasts forever.
