The Mafia can no longer move in secret, and it appears perhaps they’ve given up on trying. The cat’s out of the bag.

Swedish House Mafia‘s 2019 comeback is imminent, and now Steve Angello has confirmed the trio are in the studio together working on new music. Rumors of a reunion started the moment they took the stage at Ultra in March, and now with mysterious ads, possible big brand partnerships looming, and festivals already lining up to host a potential Swedish House Mafia performance, it looks like Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello are aiming to pick back up right where they left off. The only thing missing was confirmation of impending studio work and now Angello has put us at ease. The Size Records helmer recently told Swedish news publication Dagens Nyheter

“Yes, absolutely, Swedish House Mafia is back. Now during summer everyone is traveling a lot, but we’ve entered the studio. I can’t really say much more, but we’ve decided that: ‘Here we go.’”

During the trio’s comeback performance earlier this year, fans had already spotted unidentified originals placed throughout the set — perhaps a fully fleshed-out Swedish House Mafia release is also underway in 2019.

Zhu confirmed a big collaboration and primed 2018 as another banner year the Mind of a Genius producer. Right as the calendar flipped, rumors of an impending collaboration with Aussie psychedelic rock luminaries Tame Impala began to circulate, with video clips capturing the alleged ID beginning to trickle in soon thereafter.

During a recent performance in China, Zhu took the opportunity to officially confirm to fans that the collaboration does in fact exist and it is underway, and later confirmed in a statement by the “Waters of Monaco” producer’s management team.

Zhu’s exciting news didn’t stop there though. The aforementioned performance in China came as part of a launch event for a new Chinese electronic dance music label called Liquid State, which will host releases from Zhu, Alan Walker, and burgeoning Chinese artists, among others in 2018. Liquid State is backed by Sony and Chinese streaming and tech powerhouse Tencent Music Entertainment. The new imprint will develop dance content with the intent of leveraging Tencent’s streaming services QQ Music, Kugou Music, and Kuwo Music to distribute said content. The move was effectively sealed by a reported 10% equity swap between Tencent and Sony’s licensing partner, Spotify, in December. Tencent, by comparison, boasts nearly double the users as Spotify across their three platforms.

Coachella Fans Create Complete List of Confirmed 2017 Acts

With Coachella‘s 2017 lineup set to drop sometime within the next two weeks, attendees on the official Coachella forums have begun compiling lists of confirmed acts. From headliners like Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead to the more niche groups from far across the musical spectrum, the anticipation moving towards the festival’s April weekends has been exponentially ramped up now that we know a bit of what to expect.

The forums’ lists are divided by their level of certainty, going from Confirmed all the way to Unlikely. In the electronic music realm, fans can look forward to confirmed performances from DJ SNAKE, Bonobo, GRiZ, Martin Garrix, Nicolas Jaar, The Avalanches and The xx. In the Rumored sections, names like deadmau5, Eric Prydz, Dillon Francis, Cashmere Cat, DJ Snake, Diplo and What So Not litter the space. With no concrete evidence behind their inclusion on the final lineup however, it’s best not to get any hopes up.

These lists come on the heels of travel website Travelgrom‘s own roster of expected Coachella acts released in November. With 64% accuracy in their 2015 list, the site claims that its predictions are the most trustworthy in the scene.
