Although the legendary Swedish House Mafia trio split up more than three years ago, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello‘s impact on the electronic dance industry is far from submerged.
The three Swedish heavyweights are still heavily immersed in the seemingly endless afterglow of their earlier mastery. In fact, their iconic productions have guided them into a new level of global recognition and have opened even more doors. As they tour around the world headlining festivals and clubs of varying sizes, their illustrious reputation certainly lives on through Axwell /\ Ingrosso on one side and Steve Angello on the other.
As they wrap up their summer schedule’s and wind down a little more, their most iconic production celebrates it’s birthday today. And with nearly 400 million views to date, it will forever stand as one of dance music’s defining tracks.
It has been exactly four years since the release of Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child”. With their passion for anthemic synth melodies and the consequential signature sound that evolved over the years, the Swedish House Mafia made little doubt about their immovable status from dance music’s Hall of Fame.
The track, which left thousands of fans heartbroken, spread like wildfire not only across every big radio station around the globe for months on end, but also on every festival main stage. It helped cement the trio’s names in a number of generations memories in a way that many fans hadn’t quite experienced before. And with their influence still being felt today, the magnitude of their impact is something the scene has rarely seen before.
“Don’t You Worry Child” was a track that truly exemplified the musical prowess of the Swedish maestro’s. Featuring powerful vocals and heart-wrenching lyric’s from John Martin that evolve into its timeless melodic breakdown, it really does show the full potential dance music as a whole.
And while we can continue to pray for a possible reunion, their current work allows us to keep their magic as a fond memory. So without further ado, let the music speak for itself and relive the tear-jerking music video below!
