Free Download: "I/O" - Steve Angello

It seems the members of the mafia have each been very busy on their own lately. The latest project from 1/3 of the trio comes from Steve Angello. Steve announced during Miami Music Week that he would be linking up with Mio Energy to launch a massive campaign giving fans access to new music by asking them to Instagram pictures capturing the energy of their nights using the hashtag #MioNights. Doing so slowly unlocked the track "I/O" that was officially released for free download just yesterday. I’m always intrigued with the projects EDM artists choose to involve themselves in, and although this partnership was kind of random, I really like the concept behind it. As for the song itself, it’s extremely refreshing to hear the technicality of Angello's sound once again on its own. The song "I/O" explores a different sound than we heard from SHM, but still brings the heat of House music all the same. Be sure to grab the free download via mionights.com!

"ID" - Steve Angello + Matisse & Sadko

Matisse & Sadko first got recognized last year with their hugely acclaimed "Beating of My Heart" remix for M-3OX, which we first featured on the site back at the end of May. After having it picked up by the three Swedes to appear on their Until Now compilation album, the song found the height of Progressive House fame it well deserved. If you were at Madison Square Garden last night for the SHM's final farwell to the island of Manhattan, you probably knew most of the tracks they sampled. Even if you have seen the three at their shows around the country from San Francisco to LA, you may recall hearing this in their set. Remaining the only ID these three are spinning this Spring season, Angello + Matisse & Sadko's original collaboration is a shaking bigroom mix with some Electro vibes and amped-up energy you all need to hear before the explosion in Miami!

And check out this video of last night if you weren't there...

Review: Until Now - Swedish House Mafia

Since its conception in 2008, Swedish House Mafia has become a global EDM phenomenon.  Known for producing hit after hit, and putting on consistently epic performances, Ingrosso, Axwell, and Angello have become the faces of the mainstream Progressive House movement.  The disappointing announcement of SHM’s separation following One Last Tour has been slightly eased by today's release of Until Now, the concluding album from the trio of EDM giants. SHM has compiled their set essentials, making Until Now a 22-track house compilation for the ages. The records are intense, big room house, fitting the SHM mold perfectly. My only grievance with the album is the lack of new material. You'd expect a group with such an enormous fan base to go out with a louder bang – that would only add to the magic of One Last Tour. The "educated" house fan may know most of the tracks on the album, but you’ll surely enjoy the album nonetheless. Because there's no way to sum up the enormous year that has been 2012, without a bit of SHM.

1. "Greyhound" - Swedish House Mafia

"Greyhound" is the iconic SHM set-opener.  They’ve gotten hundreds of crowds in the palm of their hands with this track, and for good reason – it bumps.  No matter who drops it, the Mafia or others, the audience always turns to pandemonium.

2. "Here We Go" - Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes

For the project it is, “Here We Go” fits Until Now well.  The three Swedes have both supported and consistently dropped the record.  I just feel SHM missed a huge opportunity to go out with a bang – new material for One Last Tour would’ve been sick.

3. "In My Mind" - Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl ft. Georgi Kay (Axwell Remix)

In a festival setting, the synth melodies of Axwell’s In My Mind mix give you the chills.

4. "Calling" (Lose My Mind) - Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso ft. Ryan Tedder

Mentor and prodigy team up to produce a festival banger.  Simple as that.

5. "Atom / Leave the World Behind" - Nari & Milani vs. Laidback Luke vs. Swedish House Mafia

Atom is a bumpin' track with mass appeal.  Mix that with the work of SHM & Laidback Luke (Happy Birthday), and you've got a hype track for sure.

"Yeah" - Steve Angello (Original Mix)

This Progressive gem has been making its rounds through the EDM circuit for the past two years and Angello has finally released his 2012 rework just in time for the end of summer. "Yeah," a fan favorite has quickly earned its spot as the most anticipated track of Angello's career. The Swedish House Mafia member and founder of SIZE Records, which contributes a large portion of its profits to children and young adults in need, has a had quite a year. Grab this House anthem and make sure to bump it loud -- you'll have a festival in your living room.

"H8rs" - An21 & Max Vangeli vs. Steve Angello (KasipikC Remix)

Even though the era of SHM is slowly coming to the end, we know that there is one good thing to come out of this musical break-up: we'll get to see much more of these artists individually. This track from Steve Angello with An21Max Vangeli is a unique House experience that showcases elements from various subgenres of EDM. I love the build of the song, the melodic progression, the change and drum style, and then the eventual drop, but of course, my favorite part comes just before the drop: "fuck them haters." Yes, indeed. So check KaspikC's hot remix, freshly tuned up and even better. "Fuck the h8rs" (and the neighbors), grab the free download, and turn this one up.
