Swedish House Mafia - Taking No Prisoners

5 years ago

If you are into house music at all, I`m sure you have heard of Sweedish House Mafia. I hope to see them live soon as I have heard they put on a great show.

Swedish House Mafia is what can definitely be considered a house music "supergroup" consisting of Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso. The group officially formed in late 2008 out of a mutually friendship that they have had for many years. Coincidentally they are all native Swedes.

In their own rights, each member has been a huge success in the dance music community. In 2011, Axwell was voted #12 on the DJ Mag Top 100 Chart. Steve Angello was voted #23 and Sebastian Ingrosso was voted #26. Together as the Swedish House Mafia they were ranked #10.

Collectively the body of work is extremely impressive. Almost every track they have released has risen to the tops of the dance charts in the United States, United Kingdom and the rest of the globe. In addition to their own tracks, they have collaborated with the likes of Usher, NERD, Nelly Furtado, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Justin Timberlake and MOBY.

Their first feature length album titled "Until One," went on to reach Gold status in the UK. It was accompanied by a full length documentary titled "Take One," that followed them around the world over the course of 2 years and 253 gigs and it has received high acclaim amongst their contemporaries.

They are currently in the midst of a worldwide tour supporting their new album "One Night Stand" where they have sold out events at the Madison Square Garden in New York City and the Milton Keynes Bowl in London, England. For an artist or group to be able to play and sell out arenas of that magnitude is impressive and typically would be considered the pinnacle of one`s career.
