Swedish House Mafia

Swedish House Mafia & Tinie Tempah collab ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ turns 9 years old

When Swedish House Mafia returned on that iconic night at Ultra Music Festival in March 2018, one track started to reverberate around the Florida location before any other… The chords of ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’. Now, the iconic production celebrates a 9th birthday, with SHM & Tinie Tempah releasing the official collaboration all the way back in October 2010.

Later becoming known for tracks like ‘Greyhound, ‘Save The World’ and ‘Don’t You Worry Child’, there can be no doubt that ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ was hugely important in the meteoric rise of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello. Not only did the track help catapult the trio commercially, with several of the world’s biggest radio stations lending heavy airplay to the EDM classic, but it featured on the club circuit too, with many DJs including the euphoric banger in their set lists all over the world.

Following their 2019 European reunion tour, which ended with a closing finale at Creamfields in August, the world now eagerly awaits fresh music from the Swedish House Mafia, with It Gets Better rumoured to be their next official release. In the meantime, you can relive this classic slice of SHM goodness below as we “turn up on the guestlist with the Swedish House Mafia”.
