“Dance music.”
Best known for: 
“Being a part of Swedish House Mafia and making a track called 'Reload' I guess.”
Tune of the year: 
“Axwell/Ingrosso 'This Time We Can't Go Home' and 'Reload' were big for me this year.”
Stockholm, Sweden.
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2014: 
“Martin Garrix and Oliver Heldens.”

All eyes are looking ahead in anticipation to the Axwell/Ingrosso team-up album release for Def Jam in 2015. It's been a near year in the making. 

“Working hard,” Sebastian reveals. “Great to be back in the studio.” The duo have been swiftly taken under the wing of the US label, and it looks set to cause some explosive results; throwing them into yet more mayhem. Although as ex-Swedish House Mafiosa, they're used to the attention.

This year Ingrosso and Axwell held a residency at Ushuaia in Ibiza for their Departures concept, and also drove crowds crazy at many a European festival, as well as blasting sets at Balaton Sound in Hungary, Brazil's Bravall and EDC in Vegas.

Along with a punishing touring schedule came some hot apparel, courtesy of designer Linus Quirk, who fixed up the team with some tasty varsity bomber jackets ahead of their Asia Tour. Fans were given a chance to win one by sharing their film memories.

What are your first thoughts on getting into the Top 100 DJs? “Yeah, awesome that people have even voted,” Sebastian points out. And how will you thank them? “By making more music and doing more shows.” Indeed. A substantial tour of Asia will take in dates in India, Japan, China, South Korea and Dubai.
