Until Now / Swedish House Mafia

  • swedish house mafia

They cause a rage wherever they go, having recently also played to packed audiences across India, and the fact that this is their last album in no way diminishes their appeal.

Swedish House Mafia (SHM) consists of three house DJs—Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, who’ve been termed “the faces of mainstream progressive house music” since their debut in 2008. Hugely successful for their arena-throbbing live concerts, fans were shocked when last year they announced they were splitting up and that One Last Tour would be their farewell world tour. This album, their second compilation effort, forms the soundtrack to that tour.

Coursing over an hour and fifteen minutes, this 22-track monster of a goodbye mainly consists of remixes, whether it is making over Usher’s Euphoria, Coldplay’s Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall or Pendulum’s The Island. Undoubtedly the biggest dazzler on the album is Don’t You Worry Child which has become an anthem for a new generation. Less about new songs (Lights) and more about being a collection of the best of SHM, this is a fitting finale.
