Swedish House Mafia
Swedish House Mafia are the trio of Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell (Axel Christopher Hedfors), three superstar DJs on the global house-music scene. They officially founded the trio in 2010 with the release of the hit "One," but their history together goes back much further. The three DJs began establishing themselves in Stockholm clubs in the early '00s, and by the middle of the decade, their productions for labels like Axwell's Axtone and Angello's Size Records -- as well as their antics behind the booth at Ibiza's Pacha -- helped catapult them to the forefront of the house mainstream, along with pop crossover figures like David Guetta. Swedish House Mafia act like swaggering bad boys, but their music is eager to please, striking just the right balance between progressive house energy, electro panache and pop salesmanship.
