It’s hard to think where EDM would be today without the stamp of Axel Hedfors. Better known as ‘Axwell’, the Swedish House Mafia frontman has had a made his mark on not only the music industry, but music fans worldwide. He’s crafted some of house music’s most iconic tracks such as ‘I Found U’, ‘Nothing but Love’ & ‘Center of the Universe’. And his acclaimed remodes are no exception to the rule.
In 2010, Adrian Lux released the upbeat single ‘Teenage Crime’ under the Swede’s label Axtone Records. Soon after, Axel and Henrik B worked their Swedish touch on Lux’s track to make a progressive masterpiece. The slow and patient bassline intro leads into the iconic break with Linnéa Martinsson ‘s euphoric vocals to supplement melodic piano that fans have learned to love. The track was placed at #6 on the Triple J 100 in 2010.
This remode was featured on Swedish House Mafia’s debut album ‘Until Now’ and found itself in the climax of their sets in the early 2010’s. The hit also has been played by some of the biggest names in the EDM industry with the likes of Avicii, Alesso and many more supporting it.
Axwell and Henrik B’s magical tune is a true masterpiece, and turns 9 years old today. You can relive the progressive classic below:
