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.
