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.
Axwell Λ Ingrosso have announced that limited edition vinyl of their More Than You Know EP will soon be available. In an Instagram post today, July 5, Sebastian Ingrosso stated that the pre-order of the signed release is now only available in the London Store – #26 Box Park Shoreditch. He also noted we can expect more information about the global release soon.
We have already heard four of the tracks from the upcoming album, including the title track “More Than You Know.” The duo has also released “Renegade,” “How Do You Feel Right Now,” and “Dawn,” also to be featured on upcoming vinyl. The album includes 14 songs in total from across their career, including e two, unidentified additional bonus tracks.
1. More Than You Know 2. How Do You Feel Right Now 3. This Time 4. Something New 5. Renegade 6. Dream Bigger 7. Sun Is Shining 8. On My Way 9. I Love You (Feat. Kid Ink) 10. Thinking About You 11. Can’t Hold Us Down 12. Dawn
Tragedy struck right before Axwell Λ Ingrosso’sSpring 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.
Just last Friday, Axwell Λ Ingrosso released their anticipated single “Renegade” off of their ‘More Than You Know EP’ which will be released on May 28th. In addition to “Renegade,” Axwell / Ingrosso will be releasing songs such as “More Than You Know,” “Dawn,” and “How Do You Feel Right Now” off of their new
Like KSHMR, Axwell Λ Ingrosso found themselves in India to help everybody usher in the new year at Sunburn Festival. And like KSHMR, they also took the time to preview a brand new track that they had been working on.
In a short clip posted to their Facebook page, the duo shows off their forthcoming single entitled “I Love You” – for now. The track kicks off with some pleasant strings which remain present through the rest of the track before collaborator Kid Ink comes in with a rap verse in between some crooning R&B vocals from a yet-to-be-determined vocalist.

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.
