One of the hallmark records of the 2011 progressive house scene has turned 6 years old. Seldom does a track stand the test of time and consistently make reappearances in the sets of house legends such as Axwell & Ingrosso, Alesso, and Steve Angello years after its release. However, “Resurrection” has joined the ranks amongst the most famous progressive house songs of the decade and truly epitomizes the era and sound of the genre at that time. From the euphoric chords to the pulsing melody “Resurrection” embodies the distinct characteristics of the 2011-2012 progressive sound. Today, this genre has a cult like following full of fans and artists that can’t come to see it pass.
Over the years Michael Calfan and Axwell have captivated festivals and clubs around the world with this anthem. It has appeared on the famous compilation album Until Now that was released a month prior to when Swedish House Mafia embarked on their one last tour. Here, it can be heard paired with the vocal from none other than Coldplay’s “Paradise”, taking it up yet another notch. Throughout “One Last Tour” the track took a new form being mashed up with “Here We Go” from Hard Rock Sofa alongside the classic “Together” acapella. A true testament to this records prowess, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to hear this track played in the sets of major DJs and producers across the globe in the future.
“Resurrection” is a throwback to a time when progressive house reigned supreme and conjures up all that SHM nostalgia which helped bring it into the limelight in the first place.
