Swedish House Mafia will long live as some of the titans that helped mold the modern electronic landscape. From their massive tunes, to stunning sets, to their staple black leather jackets, their presence demanded respect. That’s what they got. And that’s what they still get.
While they’ve since gone their separate ways, and started their new chapters respectively, the Swedish trio’s memory lives on and every strong.
As part of Radio 1’s celebratory Ibiza weekend for its 20th anniversary last week, Pete Tong played a few of the legendary, timeless Essential Mix’s to bring some major electronic nostalgia. Included was Swedish House Mafia’s debut at Amnesia in Ibiza, which sent shock-waves throughout the scene, and foreshadowed the huge things to come.
Uploaded on their seemingly dormant Soundcloud account two days ago, the trio’s ‘birth’ is nothing short of magical. And with the upload comes the streams of adoring plea’s for them to return once again. As well as the hours spent trawling through their songs, videos, interviews and sets from the few years they were together.
While none of their catalogue features (as it’s their first ever performance) there’s an undoubted sense of something special. So for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy next 2 hours. And the Swedish House Mafia memories it brings.
