The powerhouse trio that is Swedish House Mafia (Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso) have finished up summer in Ibiza. But soon enough, you’ll be seeing the boys in Australia… Sebastian Ingrosso will be co-headlining the Stereosonic festival kicking off this November and Steve Angello is heading down to Oz for Future Music Fest in March 2011. More importantly all three will be on a silver screen in Melbourne and Sydney this December for exclusive screenings of the Take One documentary.
You may have heard about SHM’s upcoming album Until One? Well it’s also the soundtrack to the eagerly-awaited aforementioned film Take One. Directed by their mate Christian Larson, the doco follows Axwell, Angello and Ingrosso over two years, 285 gigs and 15 countries.
It takes you on a roller coaster which goes beyond the music to show what binds together three friends, artists, and pioneers in an emotional ride to success as a singular group. It documents the trend in recent years that has seen DJs portrayed as the new rock stars (hello, you’ve seen Guetta bouncing behind the decks away in his videos!) – and where the 80’s gave birth to acid house.
As for the album.. Until One is a collection of each Mafia member’s solo work to date. It’s a sonic journey from their early club beginnings through to recent success with crossover single One (Your Name) (now 23 million YouTube views!). To preview the album we have a free mini-mix of Until One for you to download. Head right this way.
