We all remember the golden age when Swedish House Mafia ruled the EDM stage, before they announced a three-way split and gave their final performance together at Ultra Miami in 2013. Well, you can’t keep these creative talents apart for long…there’s now a tour featuring two of the former Swedish House Mafia members for the fans out there still listening to ‘Save the World’ with a tinge of bittersweet nostalgia. It may not be a complete Swedish House Mafia reunion, but DJ’s Axwell & Ingrosso have scheduled a calendar filled with performances at your favorite clubs and EDM locations to resurrect the reign of Swedish House Mafia.
The breakup was an emotional ride for SHM enthusiasts, laying down the legacy in a documentary of the last Swedish House Mafia tour–Leave The World Behind. Now solo artists, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso have teamed up to rekindle some old electronic music flames (sans Steve Angelo) on their tour: Departures. The pair first debuted their Departures concept in famed EDM DJ watering hole, the island of Ibiza, at the popular day club, Ushuaïa Beach Hotel. Their collaboration (unsurprisingly) proved to be a huge hit, and the Departures union will take a break from their exclusivity in Ibiza; they have now set dates to share their sound with Swedish House Mafia-deprived fans around the world.
Axwell & Ingrosso Keep it Coming
Axwell and Ingrosso have already released a number one chart-topping single together, ‘Roar,’ and its success has been hailed noteworthy amongst the many years of singles under the Swedish House Mafia brand. The new music is even resonating across generations, as ‘Roar’ was featured in the soundtrack to Disney’s film ‘Monsters University.’ It just proves the fact that you are never too old or too young to get hyped for a production effort by the Swedish House Mafia’s Axwell and Ingrosso, as the two reunite to make some more magic.
EDC Weekend 2014
At this point in your reading you’re probably asking yourself where you can find the Departures tour next, and your answer is one that will have you booking a departing flight to the city of Las Vegas for EDC Weekend 2014. On Saturday, Jun 21st, you can Axwell and Ingrosso, two thirds of the EDM classic Swedish House Mafia, rocking their progressive house music once again. LIGHT Nightclub recently released the names of their “special guest DJ’s” to be Axwell and Ingrosso, and a special delivery this pair will indeed be for this year’s long-anticipated EDC Weekend. If the Axwell and Ingrosso reunion isn’t enough to make you question what your life was before you saw the explosive duo, the LIGHT Nightclub is sure to do that for you. The venue is by far the most extravagant Vegas club life monument, and considering this combined with the epic artists performing at LIGHT, I dare you not to show up in Sin City for this year’s Vegas season for Departures with Axwell and Ingrosso.
