Swedish House Mafia Start to type Swedish into Google and immediately House Mafia pops up. It’s no real surprise. They are, after all, Sweden’s biggest export and these past few years they have made an enormous impact on, well, the world. 2010, however, belongs entirely to them and their popularity is hard not to get drawn into, such is the excitement and energy that surrounds the jovial threesome.
Tour dates Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello once again smashed Ibiza this summer with their cunning Masquerade Motel parties at Pacha. They also blew up festivals and London’s Brixton Academy, and have upped the ante, taking DJing onto another level with the whole glam and shebang of their bespoke live shows. And then there’s the small matter of their Top 40 explosive hit ‘One’.
Music The first production that was released by Axwell, Steve Angello & Sebastian Ingrosso was “Leave the World Behind” featuring Deborah Cox. It was produced with Laidback Luke and released on Axtone Records in 2009. In 2010 the Swedish House Mafia signed a record deal with Polygram. They released their first official single, “One (Your Name)”, under the name Swedish House Mafia on Beatport on 26 May 2010, where it achieved international success, charting at number 7 in the UK Singles Chart. The next single “Miami 2 Ibiza”, featuring Tinie Tempah, charted at number 4 in the UK chart in September 2010. Both singles were taken from the “Until One” album; a collection of productions and remixes from both Swedish House Mafia and as the group as individuals. It has achieved a BPI Gold Sales award in the UK.
