While Swedish House Mafia is now defunct, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell have continued their legacy-bolstering partnership as Axwell / Ingrosso. Teasing fans with a never-ending selection of ID’s and unreleased tracks during their live sets, the Swedish duo have finally debuted their explosive sophomore EP, More Than You Know. 

Basking in the success of their latest single “Renegade”, and the unique Instagram premiere of the accompanying music video, the pair have worked tirelessly and succeeded in maintaining the contagious musical aura that fans initially fell in love with. Changing their style up slightly, Axwell / Ingrosso have effectively broken away from their traditional musical style and took a chance into a softer, more heartfelt electronica sector for their track “Dawn”.

Both Axwell and Ingrosso have embarked into 2017 focusing on the production of the EP and playing minimal shows, effectively timing the mounting tension of their anticipated EP release with the kickoff of festival season. Seeing no delay to their continued success, the acclaimed producers will spend their summer closing out an abundance of festival stages across the globe.

Axwell Reveals the Humble Origin of His Name

This post was originally published on this site

Axwell has enjoyed an absolutely ridiculous career, from being part of dance music’s legendary Swedish House Mafia, continuing as Axwell Λ Ingrosso, and even just kicking ass as a solo artist. Still, throughout all the fame, he remains a humble guy that happened to have stumbled into fame from a love of nerding out with computers.

Of course, having a cool moniker to back your music doesn’t hurt, and “Axwell” sounds every bit as vicious as the progressive anthems he churns out. However, the story of how Axwell came to be has its roots in a quaint household coffee company.

“Well you know, in school, we just gave each other names, nick names all the time. And mine actually evolved from when I started to make music. My real name is Axel, so it just came from there. Axel, Axelars, Uxel and then it went to Maxwell House for a little bit and then it just came down to Axwell.”

As one of the world’s leading sites for tracklist identification, 1001 Tracklists has accumulated wealth of data regarding what’s popular.

The site has already revealed the top five most-played tracks for the year, but now they’ve compiled a list of 2016’s top 100 artists. Their data-based method of ranking is heaps more legitimate than DJ Mag, and makes complete sense after taking a glance. Here are 1001 Tracklist’s Top 10 Artists of 2016, along with the most-played songs they were a part of.

“We’re happy to present a new form of rankings – rankings based purely from our data that represent the artists that had the most cumulative unique DJ support on their tracks in 2016. While these rankings should not be taken as a ‘be all and end all’ list for the best producers in the world, they do offer a look at the artists who produced many successful tracks in 2016 in terms of instilling interest in other DJs to want to play these tracks. We hope you enjoy the rankings, and the full Top 100 can be found here!”

Axwell / Ingrosso team up with Kid Ink for “I Love You (Working Title)”

This post was originally published on this site

There’s tons of news coming out of Sunburn Music Festival in India but perhaps the biggest reveal from the largest festival in Asia came at the hands of the legendary Axwell and Ingrosso. During their performance, the guys delighted the crowd with a first listen of their newest production. An eerily familiar string section (The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” anyone?) kicks off the duo’s latest collaboration with Los Angeles-based hip hop phenom. A blend of orchestral elements, dubby bass lines, soaring R&B vocals, and Ink’s silky smooth flows all work together with impeccable ease. Testament to both producers’ sonic versatility, “I Love You (Working Title)” is a sharp but welcome stylistic departure for the progressive house icons.

No set release date yet. But expect this one to find its way into the duo’s sets throughout 2017.
