Due to Swedish Home Mafia, it appears like 2010 once more.
Again then, digital dance music was having fun with its heyday. And Swedish Home Mafia had been emblematic of the scene on the time—cohesive and tight-knit, however flamable and able to explode. You could not go to a music competition with out listening to the visceral, signature sound of the trio, who dominated the circuit like Michael Jordan in Sport 6.
Generational anthems like “Miami 2 Ibiza” and “Do not You Fear Youngster” soundtracked the EDM increase of the early 2010s, a timeframe which Swedish Home Mafia conjured with their long-awaited debut album, Paradise Once more. Launched simply days in the past, the file functioned as a neurotransmitter, triggering the elusive serotonin rush that followers thought would by no means occur once more after the band's gut-wrenching disbandment in 2013.
In a brand new interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music 1, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello opened up about these early days and dissected the challenges that include being the vanguard of a motion. EDM.com is solely premiering a clip from the interview at this time earlier than it airs.

“All the pieces was new, proper? Every single day was a brand new day,” Angello says. “Which means that obstacles that we had, issues that we had been challenged with. Going into an enviornment was a problem. No person needed to place dance music wherever. We all the time had large ambitions. Our purpose was all the time to push boundaries, and the way will we go from Brixton to Madison Sq. Backyard?”
However regardless of the myopia mendacity beneath the turf of the world's stadiums, the band by no means overpassed their ambitions. And after Swedish Home Mafia's historic efficiency at Coachella—a competition that counts Calvin Harris as the one different DJ headliner within the final decade—it is robust to disclaim their function in ushering in one other golden age of EDM.
“We believed a lot in ourselves that we by no means gave up with an concept of opening these doorways for our crowd. Put the rave in Madison Sq. Backyard,” Angello continues. “Simply the conversations with them to e book the world was like an entire film, as a result of no person needed to place the present on. So for us it is like, you go step-by-step by step, but it surely's like fires you bought to place out all over the place. I feel, as a lot because it's enjoyable, we're simply having enjoyable, however our ambitions have all the time been so large.”
