Axwell Ingrosso

Axwell Λ Ingrosso banger ‘Sun Is Shining’ turns 3 years old





When Swedish House Mafia played their ‘final set’ at Ultra in 2013 before the group split up, numerous questions arose regarding the future of the individual artists that compiled the trio. Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello set out on a new journey away from Swedish House Mafia, and many wondered whether the sound that SHM so iconically produced would disintegrate. When the combination of Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso brought ‘Something New‘ and ‘On My Way‘, the rebirth of the two as a new duo continued to bring the sound of SHM, albeit slightly more commercial than the early SHM works. Track three from Axwell Λ Ingrosso dropped with the title ‘Sun Is Shining‘, and that very track has just turned 3 years old.

As Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso moved on with the formation of their new duo, the consistency and quality from the SHM days has not stopped. With plenty of releases and iconic performances under their belt, the duo have proved to be a huge success, which is not at all surprising given the calibre of its members. As ‘Sun Is Shining‘ made its way into the set back in 2014, it provided a spectacular closing track to the sets, holding its position in a mashup with ‘Don’t You Worry Child for a large number of the duo’s shows. The progressive banger includes vocals from Salem Al Fakir – the vocalist known for Avicii’s ‘Silhouettes‘ – and Vincent Pontare, who has worked on numerous tracks by Swedish House Mafia, Avicii, Galantis, and more recently Axwell Λ Ingrosso. The pair combine to make Vargas & Lagola, and have worked on a number of tracks together, whether it be producing vocals or providing them.

Sun Is Shining‘ still holds a strong position amongst the ears of Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s vast fanbase, and continues to drop in the duo’s sets with fantastic crowd response. The combination of Vargas & Lagola’s stunning vocals and Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s world class productions created a festival banger, and 3 years on from its initial release still retains its crowd impact and quality.
