Swedish House Mafia have announced an orchestral rework of their classic 'One' will premiere 2nd May, at their homecoming performance in Stockholm.
The EDM supergroup, who are launching a film and photography exhibition later this month, revealed to Swedish newspaper that they'd reached out to composer Jacob Mühlrad to ask him to reimagine the festival favourite through a symphony orchestra.
Swedish House Mafia have now been confirmed as headliners for this summer's Ultra Europe.
The confirmation follows on from rumours of the appearance being sparked last week after posters were put up on a billboard in Split, Croatia, where the festival is set to be held in July, while the group's three-dot logo later appeared on the Ultra Europe website.
With Swedish House Mafia’s plans for a 2019 reunion tour now in full swing, they’ve been confirmed for their second ever set in Finland.
DJ style: Big room house
Although somewhat aloof when it comes to answering questions for the Top 100 DJs poll, Steve Angello is arguably one of the most infamous stars of EDM. Right now he’s still riding the wave of his second studio album ‘Human’ that dropped this April — a piece of work that he’s been teasing his fans with since 2017 by drip-feeding a string of EPs prior.
The inspiration for the album came about at a time when he was thinking of leaving his whole music career behind altogether; instead he produced 21 progressive house tracks featuring guest appearances from Paul Meany, T.D Jakes, WDL and Pusha T.
Once again in gigland you can’t miss him; this year playing the world’s biggest festivals including Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Ultra Music Festival in Japan and Mexico. There was also the small matter of the Swedish House Mafia reunion show at Ultra Miami in March — are there more SHM moves to come? Although exactly what he’s up to next may be a mystery, we’re sure that he’ll be telling his 1.33 million Twitter fanbase in due time!
Words: ANNA WALL
Flying solo and loving it, former Swedish House Mafia man Steve Angello has mostly positive things to say about the state of the scene as he sees it. He’s particularly glad of the mainstream’s shift away from panel-beating big room sounds towards something more rhythmic.
“The whole movement right now is shifting in the right direction — which makes me happy,” Steve says. “Loads of new stuff is getting played, and yes, I am trying to play more groovy house stuff.”
Steve’s had a big year, crowned by the release of his three-years-in-gestation ‘WILD YOUTH’ long-player, but he’s also remixed electronic music legend Jean Michel Jarre and M83’s ‘Glory’, rinsed out Las Vegas club Omnia on a regular basis, and played everywhere from Green Valley in Brazil to Creamfields in the UK and Ultra Europe in Croatia. Leaving SHM has clearly done him no harm.
Swedish house don Steve Angello has announced a five-date residency at Stage, BH Mallorca.
BH Mallorca is a new flashy hotel and events complex for Summer 2015 and has finally announced its first confirmed act at Stage — Mallorca’s only open-air festival venue.
