Annie Mac has deemed Axwell‘s latest solo single, “Nobody Else,” her Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1.

The track is distinctly Axwell, focusing on pounding melodies and a nostalgic vocal. In the interview with Mac, Axwell notes that the present simply “felt like the right time” to hop in the studio and release the record. Through the exchange, the pair pinpoint the familiarity of the track as it draws from his classic and uplifting, “I Found U.” After hearing Mac herself play the track a few times over the summer, both live and on the air, Axwell felt re-inspired by its vigor and sought to create a new version of the sound it embodied, along with a vocal sample that reminded him of “the good old times.”

The interview closes with a discussion on Swedish House Mafia‘s return. According to Axwell,

It was time. Swedish House Mafia was this crazy machine that we just fell into, right. I don’t think that we really knew what we were doing, which is also beautiful… We had to spread our wings, do different things, and now after 5-6 years, the thought of being Swedish House Mafia again is like, ‘Yeah, this is exciting. Let’s see what we can come up with.’

He also confirmed new music from the trio is loaded in the pipeline–just without a definitive release date.

Astralwerks unveils its revamping following news of ILLENIUM signing with new additions Axwell Λ IngrossoAwellIngrosso 1

Rising future bass juggernaut ILLENIUM made one of his hugest career decisions official in August 2018: he’d be leaving his longtime home label of Seeking Blue in favor with a deal over at Astralwerks. His new label, a longtime top player in the dance sphere, had found itself under new leader Toby Andrews that May. It turns out ILLENIUM’s move was just the beginning.

Joining him are megastars Axwell Λ Ingrosso, and the masked king of fluff, Marshmello. These fresh signings show that Andrews has his ear tapped firmly to the ground when it comes to dance music, and is adept at picking out talent that is on its way to dominating charts worldwide. A number of key behind-the-scenes positions in the company were also filled, pointing to an Astralwerks that is buckling down to serve another 25 years at the top of its game.

Andrews spoke to the press about the new additions to the Astralwerks family:

“We’re incredibly excited that artists of the caliber of Illenium and Axwell Λ Ingrosso have decided to join the Astralwerks family. As we renew our focus on the label’s historic strengths in dance and electronic music, these artists reflect where we are headed in the coming years. Each and every member of our new Astralwerks team has a true depth of experience in the genre and are obsessive about the music. Their years of experience coming from all corners of the world prove that we are a forward-thinking and global label, poised to provide our artists with a high level of support as we continue our label’s legacy as a frontline label for the best and most cutting-edge artists in the dance and electronic music world.”

It will be interesting to see who the label targets next to bring into its fold.

Axwell / Ingrosso captivate with throwback rave-inspired ‘Dancing Alone’ video

Axwell / Ingrosso captivate with throwback rave-inspired ‘Dancing Alone’ videoRave

Axwell / Ingrosso have released a captivating music video for their hit RØMANS collaboration titled “Dancing Alone.” The beginning of the video depicts concrete statues of people before fading into blackness during the note break, where the line, “This video is not for this song,” lingers against the black backdrop. It continues to pan in on these statues in different environments, with new rules appearing on screen. The second is “no cameras at raves.” A close up of a woman swaying to the beat becomes the vocal point of the video, which switches in and out of different shots always coming back to the woman.

During the drop, the video features different moments from raves of the past. There are many cuts of women ‘dancing alone,’ and the central woman from the beginning as well as statues make reoccurring appearances throughout the duration of the video. The video then mysteriously ends with shots going off, and men running in a race. The footage is in black and white, and viewers watch one man outpace the rest before the video’s abrupt ending.
