We're gonna need a bigger boat.
The Swedish-born DJ/producer Avicii has been found dead in Oman.

The 28-year-old EDM star, born Tim Bergling, was in Muscat, Oman, at the time of his death, according to his publicist Diana Baron.

"It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii," Baron wrote 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."

Avicii was a pioneer of the contemporary Electronic Dance Movement and a rare DJ capable of worldwide arena tour. He won two MTV Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award and earned two Grammy nominations. His biggest hit was "Le7els."

His death comes just days after he was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for top dance/electronic album for his EP "Avicii (01)."

His hits include "Wake Me Up!" ''The Days" and "You Make Me."

What a shame, I quite liked Levels.

I think his music was featured in Forza Horizon quite a bit.

This might be in poor taste but...was this accidental or did being in Muscat on a day like today have something to do with it? Hard not to wonder...

"Levels" came out at a time when I was partying hard, and that song was everywhere. But not in a bad way either; it was the kind of banger that became an instant classic, and always kicked a crowd into gear. I also have really fond memories of clubbing to "Seek Bromance" on the Gold Coast during Schoolies (Aussie equivalent to Spring Break, I suppose).

Sad days. He was a talented artist who changed the face of house music and created a lot of good memories for people like me.

That really sucks. He was really talented, and I liked his music. My girlfriend really does too. This is going to really bum her out. :(

:( I loved Avicii's music. Levels was insanely popular. He pretty much set the standard for modern house music.
