Axwell

With five Grammy nominations and a bright, distinctive sound, Axwell (real name Axel Hedfors) is a member of the EDM supergroup Swedish House Mafia and a solo DJ/producer who launched his name as part of the gay club scene in Europe. He has also been a member of the Mambana collaboration (with Isabel Fructuoso), with whom he was signed to Soulfuric Recordings and issued a number of singles. He first hit the Billboard dance chart hit in 2003 with the single “Burning” (a collaboration with Robbie Rivera and Suzan Brittan), while 2004 saw the release of “Feel the Vibe,” a hit that would surface again in 2005 as “Feel the Vibe (‘Til the Morning Comes)” with singer Tara MacDonald adding new vocals. The year 2005 also saw the release of the dance hit “Watch the Sunrise” with Steve Edwards on vocals, along with the formation of the DJ’s own label, Axtone.

Until One In 2006, he would form the project Supermode with fellow producer Steve Angello, while in 2007 the pair was joined by DJ Sebastian Ingrosso for a DJ set in Ibiza under the name Swedish House Mafia. Two years later the trio signed a major-label recording contract with EMI and made their commercial production debut with the summer 2010 anthem “One,” also known as “One (Your Name)” (the latter version featured Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes on vocals). The song was a Top Ten hit in the United Kingdom, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Belgium, and landed on the group’s debut album, 2010’s Until One. Two years later the group members announced they were breaking up and returning to their solo careers, although only after a farewell tour and the release of their second album, 2012’s Until Now.
That same year, Axwell’s remix of Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl’s “In My Mind” turned the track into a smash hit and earned Axwell a Grammy nomination for best remix. He followed it in 2013 with the solo hit “Center of the Universe,” along with another collaboration with Ingrosso, the single “Roar.” The two DJs officially formed the duo Axwell & Ingrosso in 2014, performing at festivals and releasing singles such as “Something New” and “Can’t Hold Us Down.” 2015 single “Sun Is Shining” was a huge success, hitting number one on the Swedish singles chart and eventually being certified quadruple platinum. The duo released follow-up single “This Time” that November, with all proceeds donated to charity. In early 2016, Axwell released “Barricade,” his first solo single in three years.
