The trio of now defunct group, Swedish House Mafia, chose to disband at the height of their careers. The news of their disbandment left their the fans feeling upset and the media confused. What had caused their surreptitious fall?
Earlier this year, it was announced that a new documentary was coming out titled, 'Leave The World Behind,' which closely follows the final tour of Swedish House Mafia. The documentary is expected to reveal some much needed insight on what caused the disbandment of SHM, as well as, the finals moments of the beaming faces of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello as a trio.
Due out January 20th, Rebel will mark the second release of 2014 on former Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello's Size Records. AN21, a Size Records veteran with huge releases like 'Glow' and 'H8RS,' along with Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, who made their way into the Size family after a phenomenal remix of AN21, Max Vangeli, and Tiesto's 'People Of The Night' featuring Lover Lover, have conspired to create a tried and true progressive house anthem of devastating proportions.
Size in the Park is back and better than ever for a fun-filled celebration of all things EDM! Former Swedish House Mafia member and label owner extraordinaire, Steve Angello is partnering up with friends for two nights of raging in Rumsey Playfield in Central Park.
In a much anticipated return, Paul Van Dyk, the king of trance, graced New York with his presence for the first time this year. This past Sunday, August 11, we were fortunate to be a part of a monstrous, 6-hour set filled with heavy trance, powerful lasers, flashing lights, and good company.
If his Facebook and Twitter posts the week leading up to the show were any indication, he was very excited to play in New York. This could have something to do with the fact that New York feels like home to him--something he confessed in his interview with us back in July. He metioned how his show at Governors Island was meaningful to him because this is where his career essentially took off. And we could tell by the content look on his face during the 6 hour show, that he was having the time of his life.
Last year, when Swedish House Mafia brought their infamous Masquerade Motel party to Miami Music Week, it resulted in what could easily be dubbed a "mini music festival." Mostly because their were about 10,000 fans in attendance at Miami's Grand Central Park.
On March 8th and 9th, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello are bringing the highly anticiapted show to LA's Historic Park. Their first show comes with Alesso, Otto Knows, Mat Zo and Third Party on the main stage and Nero, Sub Focus, Clockwork and Monsta to The Marquee Stage. On the 9th, The Swedes will be joined again on the main stage with Alesso as well as Zedd, AN21 & Max Vangeli and No ID. Sub Focus, Style of Eye, Clockwork and Monsta will be holding it down at the Bass Arena.
There's no bigger force to be reckoned with than Swedish House Mafia. Announcing their final run as a trio with their most extensive outing ever, "One Last Tour," the Swedes have now announced they will be giving back to the victims of Hurricane Sandy and play a show at Hammerstein Ballroom on February 28 before they play New York's Madison Square Garden on March 1 and Barclays Center on March 2-4. Their final shows will be the grand finale as they open Ultra Music Festival in Miami on March 15 and close out the festival on March 24...one last time.
But, this isn't your typical rave. Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso are throwing a Black Tie Rave with plans to donate 100% of the proceeds to The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City and The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
