Festival season is officially in full swing as Ultra Music Festival (UMF) has officially wrapped its 20th anniversary event in grandiose display. The ever-expanding franchise recently announced its acquisition of Winter Music Conference, along with their expansion into China with Ultra Beijing and Ultra Shanghai.

Living up to its promise to “expect the unexpected” in 2018, UMF capped off a lofty Miami Music Week with a number of attention-grabbing acts from dance music’s top tastemakers, including David Guetta, Kaskade, Eric Prydz, and Above & Beyond, along with an illustrious cast of newcomers in REZZ, Jauz, and Virtual Self. The most exalted act of the weekend came in the form of a highly anticipated reunion from Swedish House Mafia, who filled the surprise guest slot to close out the festival. Marshmello made his main stage debut and premiered his newest collaboration with Lil Uzi Vert, The Chainsmokers put the naysayers to bed with their high-energy performance, which included four unreleased tracks and a flaming drum solo, and Sir Carl Cox delivered a high-powered spectacle in his Resistance Megastructure.

Other notable moments came care of DJ Snake, who brought out Tchami, Malaa, and Mercer to debut their new collaboration, “Let’s Get Ill;” Axwell Λ Ingrosso, who opened their set with a captivating new track ID; Tiësto, who invited out his new fiancé, model Annika Backes, to the stage; and Steve Aoki, who assembled Daddy Yankee, Elvis Crespo, and Play-N-Skillz for a live performance of their recent release, “Azukita.”

For those who can’t count themselves lucky enough to have witnessed the live weekend spectacle, DA has compiled a comprehensive list of streams from UMF 2018 to relive the festival’s most magical moments.

Axwell debuts huge new track 6 years in the making

This post was originally published on this site

It is no secret that Axwell has established himself as one of the foremost names in the world of Swedish commercial house. He’s one of the founding members of the legendary trio Swedish House Mafia, and additionally serves as one half of the powerhouse duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso. Now, the groundbreaking DJ and producer is ready to share an explosive new track for the world, one that took 6 years in the making. Axwell teamed up with NEW_ID to redesign Pauls Paris’ “Make Your Mind Up (featuring Moses York)” with a fresh vision and a bold new style.

He first got a taste of “Make Your Mind Up” over seven years ago when it came to his label Axtone as an unsolicited demo in 2010. Since then, the EDM trailblazer has embarked an expansive journey trying to bring his unreleased remodel to the world. Half a decade of reimagining and redesigning the original tune into an uplifting and infectious new song led to it making its BBC Radio 1 debut last month. Now, fans around the world can indulge in this huge new tune that has finally come to the forefront of the dance music world.

Stolen gear and passport lead Axwell Λ Ingrosso to cancel Spring Awakening set

Tragedy struck right before Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s Spring Awakening appearance in Chicago, forcing the famed act to cancel altogether. They revealed over Twitter that Ingrosso’s car had been broken into and robbed. Among the missing items were Ingrosso’s laptop with all his productions and his laptop, rendering it impossible for him to travel to the USA to fulfill his contractual duties. Axwell stayed behind too as a result.

The Swedish act held a headlining spot on the festival’s main stage on Saturday, June 10, which would marked their first time playing on American soil since the release of their recent EP, More Than You Know. “We’re incredibly sorry to miss Spring Awakening Music Festival and are working to correct this issue before our next USA appearance,” the duo remarked at the end of their announcement. Refunds were issued to those holding passes to their afterparty.

Axwell hints at Swedish House Mafia reunion

This post was originally published on this site

In 2012, Swedish House Mafia catalyzed one of dance music’s most seismic events when they announced that they would be breaking up. The following farewell tour would last nine months, and prove to be one of the most commercially successful endeavors in electronic music’s history. In the trio’s wake, all three members have remained significant figures in the dance music realm; Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso have continued their partnership, while Steve Angello has seen further success in solo endeavors.

Axwell, who has previously noted the possibility of a reunion between the group, sent SHM’s legions of fans into a frenzy after posting a tweet which could suggest a resurrection of the influential trio.In the now-deleted tweet, Axwell states “The countdown to a new era has begun. Never too late to get back on track.”

The cryptic message is accompanied by a revised version of the Axwell Λ Ingrosso logo, which adds a perceived “A” character to the two members’ initials. Fans have speculated that the second “A” symbol could suggest the formation of a supergroup with Alesso, because of his history of working with the producers, and his recent appearance with the duo at this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event.

The post also includes the date March 26, 2017, which marks Sunday of next year’s Ultra Music Festival – where Swedish House Mafia famously put on their final performance in 2013. Sources close to the group note that a reunion between the duo and Steve Angello is unlikely, and all evidence suggesting a revitalization of SHM with Alesso added to the roster is purely speculative. However, it’s safe to assume that something momentous is occurring within the ranks of Sweden’s most influential DJs. No matter the manifestation, March 26, 2017 is a date for SHM fans to mark in their calendars.
