Two-Thirds of Swedish House Mafia Reunite for New Project
Swedish House Mafia finished their reign as one of the biggest EDM groups with a massive performance at the Ultra Music Festival last year. Individual members, each with their own labels and artists to manage, appeared to go off on their own, but as of May 29, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell reunited for a new solo project – and album of original material.
The duo, now by name Axwell Λ Ingrosso, revealed the news in an interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, who premiered their live show opener.
During the broadcast, the host said: "I was lucky enough to go down to the studio this week, listen to a whole bunch of songs, some finished some almost there. It's going to be incredible. Back out on the road, NYC Governor's Ball and a handful of shows...it's a whole new era for these two."
Although Swedish House Mafia put out a string of singles over a three-year period, they never released a full-length studio album.
Like many EDM acts, Axwell Λ Ingrosso is already off and touring, with dates planned this summer for the Governor's Ball in New York and later the Electric Daisy Carnival.
As three successful producers, Axwell, Ingrosso, and Steve Angello came together officially in 2008. During their time, they put out two albums: Until One in 2010, which reached No. 139 on the Billboard 200, and Until Now, which peaked at No. 14.
One-off singles during this time included "One," "Miami 2 Ibiza," "Antidote," "Save the World," "Don't You Worry Child."
