The final shows of the Swedish House Mafia weighed pretty heavily in the life of Steve Angello in the first half of this year. Now that massive chapter of his life has closed, the powerhouse Swede says he’s feeling excited about moving forward as a solo producer again.
“It was a really emotional tour and we did so many amazing things together, playing the biggest stadiums and arenas around the world. We went to places I've never dreamt of going, and it just got bigger and bigger! But I feel like we did it right by doing a last tour.”
While Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell both struck up a new collaborative project together after the tour’s conclusion, Angello decided to go it alone for a little while. “I´m focused on my solo album, and my label SIZE that turned 10 this year.”
Angello also says he’s missed the house grooves in a lot of main stage EDM this year; the catalyst for the new. “It’s more focused on the roots,” he says. “I still have a great love of the groove, and will always do my best to keep it somewhat close to me.”
