As one-third of the Swedish House Mafia, Sebastian Ingrosso has had the year of his life. The Deep Forest nights at Pacha were the toast of the White Isle this summer and his ecstatic 'Kidsos' track, that reworked MGMT's iconic 'Kids' to devastating effect, soundtracked innumerable messy nights on the tiles. "People were singing that MGMT hook all summer," he reflects, while admitting he's still getting over the emotions of the summer months. And if 2009 was the year that the Swedish House Mafia finally made their mark, making everyone sit up and notice, the Deep Forest parties at Pacha will live long in the memory. "We knew we had to make them amazing," the boisterous Ingrosso says. "It had to be a real party, because if people were spending 60 euros to get in we had to give them a great time. That's why we went all out on the guests likes Deep Dish and Dizzee Rascal and even the pyrotechnics. It couldn't just be a Beatport Top 20 show." Now he's on a roll, Ingrosso doesn't intend to take his foot off the pedal either. Next year he hopes to release an album and to that end he's making plans in the studio right now. "I hope to get the album out next summer," he says, before adding a hasty caveat, aware that his busy schedule could sidetrack events. "But you never know. Let's see what happens."
