NYC’s dance music fans will be sad to hear the Electric Zoo Festival has been cut short this year after the death of two attendees.
The last day of the three day dance festival has been cancelled following the two drug-related deaths. The official website for E-Zoo was taken down, replaced with a message sending their condolences to the families. Sunday’s lineup included Armin Van Buuren, Sebastian Ingrosso, Laidback Luke and Steve Aoki. The popular festival attracted 100,000 people in its 2012 edition.
Only two months ago Swedish House Mafia played their final show at Ultra Music Festival. Since then, Sebastian Ingrosso & Axwell have launched their new project Departures, Steve Angelo has been locking in dates to perform globally & Axwell released his debut solo track Centre of the Universe.
only days ago SHM’s social media platforms we’re reignited with the simple post ‘…’ Shortly after, a four minute mini-movie titled ‘Leave The World Behind’ was dropped. It features each member throughout the clip doing various things, along with a rendition of their same titled track, sung by vocalist Lune.
We can only suspect that a Swedish House Mafia Documentary is in the making.
The Swedish House Mafia Sydney show was probably the best concert I had ever seen in my life…it was full of energy, great fans, AMAZING music and 3 incredibly talented DJ’s that I am devastated will no longer be working together =(
So here’s a little trip down memory lane of when Ingrosso, Axwell and Angello sat down together as SHM for an interview with VEVO News.
PS I still have my fingers crossed for a comeback!!!
A night before Sydney’s Show Announcement, Swedish House Mafia superstar Sebastian Ingrosso talks about Production work, the Last Tour Show, previous shows and saying goodbye to production/DJ crew Swedish House Mafia and more. In a phone interview with InTheMix, they were lucky enough to speak to a member from the crew and ask them plenty of questions. To read the full interview click right here.
Ingrosso speaks about his production mates, saying;
“the only thing I’m looking forward to now is going on this tour. We kind of never had a plan with Swedish House Mafia, it just became Swedish House Mafia in a weird, very nice way.”
He continues to admit that SHM was pretty much a beautiful accident. When asked about the legacy for SHM in the interview, Ingrosso says that got together with no plan at all and the ending was not planned;
“This isn’t planned, this is no marketing thing. That’s what I hope, at least, comes across.”

Following a year of anticipation, and the success of “Calling” and “Years,” Alesso’s “Clash” will finally see the light of day. The young Swede offers his darker side on his next production, pushing his anthemic house in a gritty direction, powered by powerful riffs and a dynamic bassline. All the while, Alesso maintains his signature melodic undertones while delivering his heaviest effort to date. “Clash” is set to be released Monday, December 10th via SebastianIngrosso’sRefune Records. Let us know what you think of it!
