Rookie DJ-producer Tim Berg (AKA Avicii) is only 22 years old. But his resume already reads like that of a seasoned industry heavyweight. In 2008, after topping BBC Radio 1 luminary Pete Tong's Fast Trax poll, the Swedish prodigy dropped his breakthrough release "Manman" on Tong's Bedroom Bedlam label.

Last year, Avicii went on to collaborate with VIP producers like Tiësto, John Dahlbäck, and Swedish House Mafia's Sebastian Ingrosso, before signing with the highly prestigious EMI label.
