Start to type Swedish into Google and immediately House Mafia pops up. It's no real surprise. They are, after all, Sweden's biggest export and these past few years they have made an enormous impact on, well, the world. 2010, however, belongs entirely to them and their popularity is hard not to get drawn into, such is the excitement and energy that surrounds the jovial threesome.
Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello once again smashed Ibiza this summer with their cunning Masquerade Motel parties at Pacha. They also blew up festivals and London's Brixton Academy, and have upped the ante, taking DJing onto another level with the whole glam and shebang of their bespoke live shows. And then there's the small matter of their Top 40 explosive hit 'One'.
"It's been an unbelievable year so far," Sebastian puts it lightly, "and we are gonna continue what we do and just bring more music to everyone that we can."
Individually or combined, their force is to be reckoned with, although pinpointing one highlight of the year was hard to do. They did tell us that "we have had such great support from our fans and followers and it really strengthens you as a group. So, we're going to continue what we do and we are going to learn from that and apply that to our solo music, so that everything grows fast."
