Swedish House Mafia – Live @ Creamfields 2010 – BBC Essential Mix of the Year 2010 [COMPLETE SET]
The Swedish House Mafia is a group of three house DJs and producers: Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Eric Prydz is a former member of the group. The Swedish House Mafia released their first official single “One” under the name Swedish House Mafia on Beatport on 26 May 2010.
Their website features all four artists as part of the Swedish House Mafia; however, Sebastian Ingrosso has stated that because Eric Prydz moved to London he is no longer considered part of the Swedish House Mafia. The trio remain close with Prydz, also known as Pryda, supporting many of his tracks in their sets.
Axwell has said the formation of the Swedish House Mafia occurred when he moved to Stockholm and met Sebastian Ingrosso while drinking, he later met Steve Angello through Ingrosso. “The name is just a random thought.”, as described by Steve Angello, it occurred outside a 7 Eleven late at night while drinking coffee.
In 2010 the Swedish House Mafia signed a record deal with EMI and a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing. In Australia they are signed to Ministry of Sound Australia & EMI Australia.
