The bounce-back from his Miami absence is real; Eric Prydz will be unveiling his debut VOID concept show at his Creamfield Steel Yards headlining slot on August 23, 2019. In addition, Prydz was also announced on the stacked phase one lineup for Electric Zoo: Evolved alongside other giants, Dog Blood, Diplo , Excision and more. In characteristic Prydz fashion, the mastermind behind EPIC and HOLO dropped a teaser video for the latest addition to his portfolio of visionary productions. This newest announcement VOID stands for “Visual Offset Isometric Design” and looks to be Prydz’s most advanced hologram shows yet with anticipation at an all-time high.

The 41-second teaser shows a black hole forming in space, coming together to form the “O” in VOID complemented with a signature Prydz progressive sound. The combination of an entire hologram show and Prydz timeless mixing skills has continuously proved he stands as an artist and creative in a lane of his own. Prydz previously brought his HOLO stage to last year’s Creamfields in 2018 and stunned both attendees and fans with his insane, innovative visual production. Now, with VOID he seems to be aim for even higher ground.

BREAKING: Swedish House Mafia scrap upcoming reunion, cancel all live performances

What the Mafia giveth, the Mafia taketh away. 

The painstakingly slow pace with which Swedish House Mafia individually announced each of their upcoming 2019 performances contrasts with the unanticipated rapidity of the supergroup’s cancellation of all upcoming shows—effective immediately. Swedish House Mafia have been a highly sought lineup inclusion since their landmark reunion at Ultra Music Festival in 2018. The “Greyhound” producers recently topped Ultra Europe‘s 2019 lineup, as well as Ultra Korea, Lollapalooza Berlin, and Creamfields’. Now, instead of “Save The World” at festivals across the globe, Swedish House’s unexpected and incredibly swift cancellations presents these festival organizers with a new challenge: “Save The Lineup.”

Swedish House Mafia have also backed out of their singular headlining shows. Axwell, Ingrosso, and Angello were slated to take the decks in a number of cites worldwide, ranging from Mexico City to Stockholm. Swedish House Mafia jointly broke the news of the cancellations during an interview on BBC Radio 1.

“You know what they say, three’s a crowd. We found that to be true as we plotted our comeback tour,”

Steve Angello said. The Size Records figurehead confirmed that he will continue to solo produce and release music.

While each member of the Mafia stated his regret that the reunion effort will not in fact come to fruition during the interview, Axwell and Ingrosso also expressed their optimism for the future. The pair previously shared their plan to press pause on their Axwell ^ Ingrosso project, in order to devote the full scope of their focus to the revival of Swedish House Mafia. “We will now, in fact, be taking our old project off the shelf. We thought about doing a countdown to a bunch of new dates for Ax and I, but we thought the idea seemed kind of unoriginal” Ingrosso said during the BBC Radio 1 interview. Further along in the interview, Axwell, who mainly kept quiet during the discussion, coyly mentioned that he believes all of life is a simulation and he’s a big fan of April Fool’s jokes.

Weekend Rewind: Throw it back to Swedish House Mafia’s 2010 Creamfields Essential Mix

Weekend Rewind: Throw it back to Swedish House Mafia’s 2010 Creamfields Essential MixSwedish House Mafia Ultra 2018 DA

Swedish House Mafia continue to make their return to the electronic sector one painstaking step at a time, the most recent of which directed the three-part supergroup to Columbia Records to pen a record deal with the label. Dancing Astronaut invites Swedish House Mafia fans to momentarily avert their eyes from the horizon where new SHM music has long loomed, to instead glance nine years backwards and relive the trio’s 2010 Creamfields Essential Mix as the ink of the Columbia agreement dries.

The Essential Mix takes streamers back to Aug. 29, 2010, a time in which Axwell, Ingrosso, and Angello were jointly pioneering their iconicity as Swedish House Mafia. The 2010 set, live from Daresbury, England pairs a number of classic Swedish House Mafia productions that have now ascended to catalog-staple status with remixes and edits of offerings from other electronic entities like Bingo Players, Calvin Harris, and Pendulum. Highlights include an instrumental rendition of “Miami 2 Ibiza,” and Axwell’s bootleg of “Tell Me Why vs. Bittersweet Symphony.”

Swedish House Mafia currently shoulder headlining duties for Creamfields’ 2019 edition, slated for Aug. 22-25.

Creamfields seems to be gearing up for a strong 2019 edition. After securing Eric Prydz and Carl Cox for their event at London’s famed Steel Yard venue, the festival upped the ante in November by snagging a highly anticipated Swedish House Mafia headlining performance for 2019. Riding that momentum, the festival’s latest announcement reveals deadmau5 as the next confirmed headline act for next year’s festival.

deadmau5, who played the festival in 2017, will hold the Friday night closing slot on the Arc Stage come next August. With two progressive house stalwarts already announced on their lineup, Creamfields is sure to be 2019’s prime destination for top tier electronic music.
