Time has flown by since the disbandment of the Swedish House Mafia in 2013, but their legacy lives on as the trio continue their projects away from one another, with Steve Angello following a solo career. Possibly the most under-rated member of the former trio, Sebastian Ingrosso celebrates another year of life, amidst recent blazing commercial success as one half of Axwell Λ Ingrosso, who have been earning rave reviews for recent performances, including their headline set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
To celebrate the birthday of a true legend, we’re taking you back to one of the golden eras of dance music, when Swedish House Mafia were at the forefront of the scene. Flashback to 2012, when Ingrosso teamed up with his most accomplished protégé, Alesso, to deliver one of the most electric essential mixes in history.
Their incredible performance from Cream at Privilege Ibiza made its way to BBC Radio One as a true hallmark set, packed with some of the tunes that would forever change the course of dance music history. The pair raised goosebumps opening with their timeless collaboration ‘Calling’, and set the tone for the next hour and half with tunes like Deniz Koyu‘s ‘Bong’, Alesso’s ‘Titanium’ remix of the David Guetta classic, and the Tommy Trash remix of ‘Ladi Dadi’.
Relive the unforgettable night the teacher and student went back to back on SoundCloud below. Happy birthday Ingrosso!
