As many of you already know, Swedish House Mafia decided to break up after Ultra. However, two of its members, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell, have decided to team up and work together as the Departures. The duo has announced its new residency in Ushuaia, Ibiza and will be playing at Ushuaia Beach Club starting June 12. This is going to be an amazing experience for the duo and hopefully, the two producers will continue to produce tracks together. Stay tuned for more from the Departures!
I can’t believe that Swedish House Mafia is breaking up in a little more than a month. The dynamic trio have been an integral part of the rave culture and it will be very sad when we see them break up soon. However, Axwell and Ingrosso left us a gift in this track “We Come, We Rave, We Love”, which Swedish House has been using as an opener recently. Check out the track below and enjoy Swedish House Mafia while they are still around!
We Come, We Rave, We Love
Singer, actress, and high school student, Amelia Scaramucci covered the ever so popular radio hit “Don’t You Worry Child.” Amelia sings the chorus and short verse over a laid back piano and guitar instrumental thus highlighting her vocal range. Her remake of the the platinum single is refreshing and most definitely a good effort. Overall, her vocals are very impressive. Amelia used her canon camera to capture the visual and recorded the song with a Yeti mic in garageband. She then put together the video simply through iMovie proving that you don’t need a professional application to showcase your talent. It was the first time she had done something like this so it is not perfect. Hopefully this is the first of many song releases from the talented young artist.
Plastic People is an upcoming DJ/Producer duo that specializes in producing dope trap beats. Seriously, these guys run the trap. Anyway, here is an epic remix of Swedish House Mafia’s “Save the World”. I am excited to see what these guys produce next because this group sounds like it could produce festival trap anthems in the near future.
SHM - Save The World (Plastic People Trap Remix)
One month ago yesterday, twenty-seven people were killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. Regardless of our closeness to the victims, or our distance from them, the deaths of children affect everyone who hears about them. One of the reasons I love music the most is because of the way it reacts to the world around it.
I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and I found this video. Underground RnB singer Devvon Terrell recorded a cover of Swedish House Mafia’s anthem “Don’t You Worry Child” as a tribute to the twenty children murdered. He begins with a downtempo, vocoder-piano cover of John Martin’s vocals, before exploding into the progressive synths that made the original famous. Footage of smiling children undercuts shots of Devvon playing the piano. Please check out the video above.
Steve Angello was defined by his part in the superstar group, Swedish House Mafia. After the announcement that Swedish House Mafia will no longer be together Steve Angello showed that he is still a all-star veteran of the scene in his solo career. Steve Angello has been working on “Yeah” for over two years and it was well worth the wait. Steve Angello actually remade this song after an older track of his. The track is filled with uplifting synths and is sure to be a key player in his sets. 50 cents of each purchase from Beatport will be donated to charity which is even more reason to buy this one.
“Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia is receiving the remix treatment by Tom Staar and Kryder. The two DJ/Producer’s took the instant classic and transformed it from the sweet toned, synth heavy track into a down and dirty nightclub anthem. It’s an interesting take on already amazing song. Personally, I would not have dared to remix a song like this, but Tom Staar & Kryder did a fantastic job on this remix. I will update the post with the download link when it officially releases, until then keep the preview on repeat!

Steve Angello, one third of Swedish House Mafia, took his talented label, Size Matters, to Central Park in NYC for an unforgettable night. Although Rumsey Playfield in Central Park has a ton of restrictions (including a 10pm curfew), Angello was able to make the most out of the outdoor venue. I am usually the one to critique the Rumsey Playfield, but last night Central Park’s Summerstage was more than just a normal concert venue, it was transformed into a nightclub. One thing I probably should mention though is the unorganized bathroom situation, but that could of been easily fixed by having more porta potties available.
With the help of rain and impressive lights for such a small landscape, the crowd of 3,500 last night danced from 5pm till 10pm..and I’m sure many still went to the afterparty at Pacha. Last night it was all about the music. The rain started to really come down as Angello was playing Ingrosso & Tommy Trash’s new single “Reload.” “I ordered this rain,” Angello exclaimed as the distorted bassline from “Reload” dropped. Steve Angello then went on to say, ”The funny part about the rain is you know whose here for the party and whose here for the music.”
Steve Angello started his set by playing the beginning of his popular mix “KNAS” and then going immediately into SHM’s hit single “Greyhound.” Luckily enough, Sirius XM radio has a live rip of his full set, but listening to the set as the rain fell in Central Park with lasers being shot at the tall trees surrounding the venue was a whole different experience than just listening below. You had to be at the concert to really understand the energy Steve Angello brought to the park. When Steve Angello played Dada Life’s “Kick Up The Epic Motherf****r”, he dropped “Epic” in place of the second drop and the crowd erupted. Later in the night Angello played “Leave The World Behind” mixed with Nari & Milani’s massive festival hit “Atom.” I remember witnessing Swedish House Mafia premiere “Greyhound”, “Atom” and “In My Mind” all back at MSG months ago. It was great seeing Angello drop these tracks again since the crowd knew just about every beat drop and melody.
Towards the end of the night, Rumsey Playfield was full of smoke from the machines on stage and happiness. Steve Angello ended his set with “Don’t You Worry Child” as expected, but he didn’t just hit play and allow the crowd’s emotions to kick in. He played a “world exclusive” that featured a bass heavy drop. The remix allowed the intimate crowd to erupt just one last time before leaving the park. I’m sure Steve Angello went on to play an amazing set at Pacha after hours too, but I still have to wait a little before I can legally get in…Enjoy the stream of Steve Angello’s set below. And be sure to catch Swedish House Mafia on their Last Tour.
Update: Due to Copyright violations the stream had to be taken down.
We posted about the live premier of this track at Tomorrowland and it’s radio premier on BBC Radio 1 and just today the radio edited version has hit the net. The powerful piano-synth driven single features vocals from John Martin and guitar riffs building into a melodic drop that will most likely can stuck in your head. Make sure to support Swedish House Mafia’s by purchasing their last single “Don’t You Worry Child” when it hits Beatport. For now listen to the radio edit below or watch the emotional Tomorrowland performance here.
Update: The extended mix has hit the internet too..You can stream both versions below. Enjoy!
