Interscope Records, in conjunction with Troy Carter's electronic dance music label Atom Empire, is pleased to announce that it has signed a singles deal with rising Swedish DJ, remixer, and producer Avicii for the U.S.

Born Tim Bergling in Stockholm, Avicii has already conquered club charts worldwide with his current single "Le7els."

Released by LE7ELS Records/Atom Empire/Interscope, the radio edit is now available now at all digital partners.

"Le7els" has been declared the "Tune of 2011" by David Guetta in DJ Mag, which also placed the 22-year-old Swede at No. 6 on its yearly poll of the Top 100 DJs after just two years of performing. This past weekend (the first weekend it was released) "Le7els" sold well over 10,000 copies on iTunes.

Avicii - LEVELS video:

Part of the next generation of electronic music producers to explode alongside the likes of Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia, and his sometime collaborator Guetta (on Guetta's current album Nothing But The Beat), Avicii has emerged as a potent force on the electronic dance music scene, penetrating on both a club and commercial level. "Le7els" climbed to No. 1 the International Beatport chart, as well as on the club charts in Germany and Australia, while the success of prior singles "Seek Bromance," "Street Dancer" and "Fade Into Darkness" have also propelled him into the ranks of superstar DJs who are able to perform to massive crowds.

Avicii has headlined such colossal events as Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Dance Valley, Street Parade, and IDentity festival, and performed on the mainstage at the this year's Electric Daisy Carnival.
