Steve Angello & Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman’s hit ‘Payback’ turns 5 years old

When two of dance music’s most iconic acts team up in the studio, the recipe for success usually results in the birth of a piping hot banger. Never has that formula proved more true than in April 2014, when prog-house duo Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman teamed up with legendary SIZE Records founder, Steve Angello. 

Blessed with one of the most instantly recognisable builds, and a truly euphoric drop, ‘Payback’ soon became a firm festival favourite all around the world and is still played by many DJs in their mainstage sets to this day. With Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman going on to create further progressive masterpieces including last year’s whopper, ‘Phantom’, fans are hoping that the duo will team up with Angello again in future.

Set to embark on his Swedish House Mafia return on a full-time basis, Steve Angello is currently gearing up for a trio of consecutive nights at Stockholm‘s Tele2 Arena at the start of next month, with the SHM hype train chugging along to Ibiza, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and many more this summer. You can relive this classic Angello X Wyman X Vangelis collab below… This is Payback!
