June 3, 2010 Leave a comment
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 May 26 2010.
Their website http://www.swedishhousemafia.com 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 Eric 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 at late night while drinking coffee.
