Swedish House Mafia

Not familiar with this club music outfit? Well, I am here to tell you stuff about them. In 2010 this DJ outfit from Stockholm had a number one dance hit with the song "One (Your Name)" featuring Pharrell. Some thought that this was their first hit. That is wrong. The three men behind the act, Axwell, Sebatian Ingrosso and Steve Angello, have been around the club/dance music scene for years. Each of these three men is a celebrated DJ in his own right, so you can imagine the stuff they have come up with together.

So there is some play on words involved in the title of this album. The album contains 24 tracks that are examples of work that the three gentlemen have done up until their hit entitled "One (Your Name)". The songs have all been mixed together so it is one great big orgy of dance music. From their own work like on the tracks "I Found U" (Axwell) and "Monday" (Angello) to their reworkings of other musical acts songs like MGMT's "Kids" and Daft Punk's "One More Time" it is all there. A primer on what Swedish House Mafia is about and what they will be in the future.
