“In the beginning there was house, in the end there was house. And in the middle… There was Axwell.”
The iconic quote, from Axwell himself, has never seemed more appropriate. Delivering a stunning 5-minute mini-mix for Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 on Friday night, the Swedish maestro fused a number of his all-time classics, including ‘I Found U’, with more modern hits like ‘Nobody Else‘ in what was a welcome return to a more pure house sound for the Swedish House Mafia producer and DJ.
Having flirted with various sub-genres of EDM and bass music during his Axwell Λ Ingrosso sets in recent years, this mini-mix took things back to the electro-tinged sound that first propelled Ax into the spotlight all those years ago. Also included in the mix was a fresh selection on future hits from his Axtone Records label, including whoppers from Chocolate Puma, and British rising-talent, D.O.D.
