Tomorrowland’s One World Radio explores history of Swedish dance music

This week, Tomorrowland‘s One World Radio has gone Swedish, and is exploring everything great about Sweden and electronic music with special broadcasts all week long which started on Monday as part of the ‘Made in Sweden’ week. Whether it’s Swedish House Mafia, Eric Prydz, Alesso or many, many other favourite Swedish exports, there is certainly no denying that Swedish artists have contributed a staggering amount to the dance music scene as we know it. To celebrate, One World Radio have come up with a stacked program to entertain on all days this week.

Monday – The Story of Swedish House Mafia

Kicking it off on Monday was the most popular Swedish trio in dance music history, Swedish House Mafia. A special one-hour broadcast on the history of the trio was explored from resident presenter Adam K who explored everything from their breakthrough all the way up to their comeback which truly exploded this year. You can re-listen to that here.
