So if you were not already aware that Swedish House Mafia is reuniting in 2018, you must live under a ridiculously large sized rock. Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso took the stage in Miami during Ultra 2018 for the first time in five years. During their reunion set, the guys made it more than
Amidst the Swedish House Mafia hysteria, Axwell Λ Ingrosso continue to dish out content. This time, the duo has released the official music video for their latest single, “Dancing Alone,” featuring RØMANS. The track has already raked up more than 30 million streams worldwide, as it gifted fans with a mix of house and beloved trance sounds.
At just 21 years old, Swedish director Brokenint alludes to the blending of genres with contrasting visual experiences, as viewers will see constant frame switches throughout the video. One setting consists of an empty warehouse space filled with rave lights, mannequins, and, of course, someone dancing alone. In the other setting, viewers get some nostalgic footage of Ibiza in the early 2000s.
While many fans are gearing up for the Swedish House Mafia reunion tour scheduled to take place in 2019, many fans are still thinking back to the unbelievable performance from Ultra Miami 2018. While there was a lot of talk about the show being videoed with the intent of selling the footage, these rumors never
At this point in the game, all the members of Swedish House Mafia are just having fun with the fact that the public is at their fingertips. After a massive reunion at Ultra Miami this past year, the trio of artists have confirmed they will be reuniting in 2019 for a world tour. While we
It seems that the world has a fever, and the only cure is more Swedish House Mafia related news. This past March at Ultra Miami, the group returned to the same stage for the first time in nearly 5 years. Since then one thing and thing only has been on everyone’s mind: was Ultra a
While the ‘sun is shining’ for Swedish House Mafia fans, it’s waning for Axwell ^ Ingrosso, for with the reinstatement of Swedish House Mafia comes the retirement of the duo’s offshoot joint project that picked up when The Mafia disbanded. Sebastian Ingrosso recently spoke about the trio’s full fledged 2019 reunion with Swedish news source, Metro, during which Ingrosso noted that the Axwell Λ Ingrosso would pause under to resume Swedish House Mafia’s renewed reign. Ingrosso elaborates,
“No, we will not do that, we will actually put it on the shelf. As I usually say, there are three dots, it’s not two plus a dot. But we will definitely still do our individual stuff.”
Ingrosso additionally touched on the basis of the electronic superpower’s reunion. “Me and Axwell did our thing and Steve did his thing and Axwell and I felt we had done our thing for five years. We felt it was time, we missed it,” Ingrosso said of the group’s decision to reconvene. As we inch closer to the reunion we’ve all been waiting for, a dominating force on the EDM circuit that nearly filled the Swedish House void is hanging it up — for the best.
According to a report by the Swedish daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter, Steve Angello announced that Swedish House Mafia are back in the studio after a five year hiatus. Upon making their return to Ultra Music Festival Miami 2018, fans have been anxiously awaiting news of a Swedish House Mafia tour and new music from the
“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.
Since the short lived return of EDM’s most storied trio, Swedish House Mafia, speculation surrounding their next move has been spreading like wildfire. Details of a full scale reunion are beginning to slowly trickle out, and it looks like the three veteran superstars may have some special commemorative gear on the way too, possibly courtesy of Nike.
Recently, Sebastian Ingrosso stoked the fire by uploading a telling photo to Twitter — a t-shirt touting three Nike swooshes across the back, reminiscent of the Mafia’s three dot calling card. A few months ago, right around the time of the group’s larger-than-life reunion performance, pictures surfaced of similarly-SHM-fashioned Nike sneakers. The recurring photos point to a potential partnership of some sort, though its too early to say if Nike was tapped for tour merchendise, a capsule collection, or something entirely different.
While nothing is substantive yet, the recent revamping of Swedish House Mafia’s now-empty merch store could be another nod in Nike’s direction. Stay tuned.
A series of posters bearing three consecutive Adidas logos recently appeared in London, further fueling speculation that the Swedish supergroup would soon announce a 2019 tour given the posters’ resemblance to those that appeared in Miami just before SHM’s reunion at Ultra 20.
While Swedish House Mafia’s comeback at Ultra‘s 20th anniversary celebration might very well have been the worst kept ‘secret’ of 2018, an ensuing Swedish House appearance–whether in the form of a tour of in that of a Tomorrowland 2019 performance–could be the 2019 equivalent.
Angello recently chatted with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, during which he told the source that the group would play Tomorrowland 2019 “by any means necessary.” Angello’s comment crystallizes the long suspected, but formally unconfirmed return of the trio, despite a lack of formal affirmation from Tomorrowland festival organizers.
Tomorrowland has not released the dates of its 2019 production, but given Angello’s remark, tickets to the Boom, Belgium based affair can only be expected to sell out with increased rapidity next year if “means” prove propitious.
