Steve Angello has spent a sizeable portion of the year winding up Swedish House Mafia activities. After deciding - alongside Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso - to put the SHM project to bed at the end of the year, he's been refocusing on his solo DJ career and promoting his Size Records label, which in its time has released tracks by big boys Tiësto, Deadmau5, Avicii, Thomas Gold and Sander van Doorn, as well as regular Size headz such as Max Vangeli and Steve's brother Antoine, aka AN21.
