Swedish House Mafia‘s manager, Amy Thomson, has announced her split from the group, with the Scandinavian trio heading in a separate direction to her in future. Taking to her official Instagram page to announce the news, Amy thanked a number of people during the emotional speech, which also paid tribute to her daughter. Responsible for many of Swedish House Mafia’s peak moments throughout the years, including their shows at the MK Bowl in 2012, and One Last Tour project in 2013, Amy oversaw the careers of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello, as they became the biggest act in world dance music, headlining shows at Madison Square Garden and the Friends Arena in Stockholm.
Having announced her managerial split with Alesso last year, with the ‘Falling’ producer deciding to sign with Shots Studios, Amy still oversees her esteemed ATM Artists company, and currently has DJ Snake on her books. Following Swedish House Mafia’s reunion at Ultra Music Festival in March, the group are currently gearing up for their World Tour next year, with Steve Angello recently confirming that the trio are working in the studio together again on new music. Their last track, (‘Don’t You Worry Child’) was released over six years ago, in summer 2012.
Though there is no formal announcement on who will take over as SHM’s new manager, rumours continue to circulate, linking Angello’s manager Scooter Braun with the position. You can catch Amy’s post below, and from all the team at We Rave You; It’s a firm thanks to Amy Thomson for her huge contribution to the Swedish House Mafia story over the course of these incredible years.

Thanks for all the messages I got hit with about this. But I guess now is the time to say that in May this year I told the boys I would be leaving at the end of summer 2018. In this industry people expect you to stay in projects that make you powerful. Ego. Pride. Power. Money. All of that. But for me I have learned that life changes you and what you want to do with that gift is a gift in itself. It was a big decision after 14 years but one I made for myself. I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end. And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom. Thank you to everyone who helped us. Who put up with us. The fans who stayed with us. We made history. But most of all to my daughter who shared me with this crazy ride without ever complaining. We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x
