It is a testament to their huge international appeal that the Swedish House Mafia has ‘done a Daft Punk’ this year, in that they have made it into the Top 100 despite not performing for most of the year in the wake of their split back in March.
“The last few months were pretty emotional,” says Seb Ingrosso. “It was the best and worst of times for us, but you know it was also super nice to finally get the tour and the single done and thank everyone.”
For the last decade few electronic acts have had the crossover appeal of Swedish House Mafia, arguably the group that kick-started the EDM craze in the States, however unwittingly. In their wake, shows with mind-blowing lights, lasers and crowds numbering in the hundreds of thousands have become ever more the norm.
“Milton Keynes Bowl was a real career highlight. Ultra in Miami was a special moment but also places like India were super special, we got love like nowhere else before and playing our songs still brought tears to our eyes.”
Gone they may be, forgotten they certainly will never be.
