WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Grammy-nominated DJ, Avicii, featuring special guest Audrey Napoleon, will perform at Purdue University's Elliott Hall of Music at 7:30 p.m., April 25. This performance is presented by the Purdue Student Concert Committee.


One of the big success stories of the last couple of years in dance music has been the unstoppable rise of Stockholm, Sweden native Avicii (Tim Bergling). The Swedish house star has already worked with David Guetta, Leona Lewis, and Tiësto. In 2011, his collaboration track, "Sunshine", with Guetta was nominated for a Grammy award under the category for Best Dance Recording.

Some of his chart-topping hits include "Seek Bromance," "My Feelings For You," "Fade into Darkness," and his latest, "Levels." He reached No. 6 in the ‘DJ Magazines Top 100' 2011 poll and in 2009, and was crowned "Breakthrough Producer/DJ of the Year" in DJ Magazine's ‘Top 100' special edition. "Levels" had 20 million YouTube hits even before its official release and he started a podcast by the same name. "Levels" has been remixed by several artists; the most popular were made by Skrillex, Cazzette and Noise inc.

Audrey Napoleon

Audrey Napoleon is a new arrival to the hallowed halls of dance-music production. She released her first track at the end of 2010 but is an established force behind the decks, thanks to her residencies at Los Angeles' Avalon nightclub and the Music Box.

Even if you've never set foot in L.A. and you've never heard her name, it's entirely possible you're already familiar with her music. Her track "#Mysunrise" serves as the soundtrack to a popular Heineken commercial that's making the rounds, and Napoleon herself appears in the ad as both the party-rocking DJ and the love interest.

Napoleon admits to not really paying attention to trends. "Especially in music, I'm in the studio trying to carve out my own way," she says.

Her latest EP is a testament to this as it gives a nod and new spin to Boston on the track "Closed My Eyes," alongside the ominous and hypnotic "Just Another Beatles Rip Off." The track "Banana Soda es Muy Loca" is a playful adventure placed next to the even more mischievous "Foxy Boxy," "Bitchy Queen" and Latin infused "Carlos Martinez"
