Widely regarded by many as a true professor of modern dance music, Axwell is truly, an all-time dance music legend. Having spawned a number of massive hits alongside his good friend Sebastian (Axwell Λ Ingrosso) and good friend Steve (Supermode), Ax is best known for teaming up with both to form dance music’s most potent trio of all time, the Swedish House Mafia.

Regardless of this, a huge chunk of Axwell’s popularity comes from his iconic solo productions, with the Swede clocking up an insatiable back catalogue which includes EDM anthems like ‘In My Mind’, ‘Barricade’ and ‘I Found U’. One of the Axtone label owner’s most popular hits is undoubtedly, his recut of Michael Calfan’s ‘Resurrection’ which later became the set opener for SHM during their ‘One Last Tour’ shows, such was the rework’s intense ferocity on the breakdown.

Released on this exact date in 2011, the hit is now 7 years old, and though it is hard to believe that so many years have flown by, this one still sounds as fresh as ever in November 2018! This is the Axwell recut of ‘Resurrection’ and you can relive the moment SHM opened with it in Amsterdam in a 2012 show at the Ziggo Dome, below:
