One of this planet’s most prominent DJ characters brought his utter A-game to the port city of Gothenburg to pull the weight for 2011’s third edition of Where’s The Party? by Carlsberg.

Where The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson all have been coined as inimitable has now succeeded in bringing aboard the king of sun-kissed Summer anthems – Axwell – to an untouchable spot as a steadily recurring headliner and one third of the highly-acclaimed Swedish House Mafia trio. His thriving personality stand merely speechless in comparison to the vast stage experience and immense ability to scoop success from the darkest of places with a host like no other, including Heart Is King and the ever so dance-friendly remixes of In The Air and Sweet Disposition (with Dirty South). And dance-friendly was most certainly the essential adjective for last night’s event at the large venue of Trädgårn, at which there was not a single square metre not occupied by the pumping fists of a true electronic dance music head.

Opening up with a set from one of Sweden’s most intriguing and ascending DJ’s to date, whom delivered a two hour heater which pretty much outshined the majority of all warm up-sets with its tremendous dynamics of throbbing club beats, old school riffs and sing-along tech anthems, the night was already off to a great start about to get nothing, if not better! From the 2011 contender from Duck Sauce, Big Bad Wolf, to numerous forthcoming smashes from his truly, Sebjak showcased widespread skill in mixing, live mashups and records like Third Party’s already highly rated Feel hit and Tommy Trash’s mighty electro follow-up to The End which we now can unveil is named Future Folk.

Coming off a year of stupendous prosperity from the global support from the House and EDM scene, the tension at last night’s event with Axwell was dangerously close to touchable as the slamming hook of Alesso’s breakthrough single was touted in the top of the line speaker system along with the Bentley’s of all effect set-ups pushing towards what some might refer to as the “true Swedish House Mafia experience”. Well, now we sure know what this mob is capable of doing as the yet not benamed single collaboration with Knife Party was a crucial gem to the introduction of the set of Sweden’s most celebrated DJ export last night. Although the Swedish House mobsters have shown indications of hosting a solid amount of tracks throughout each set, Ax boasted Sunday night with innovative reinforcements in shape of a couple of previously unknown ID’s and countless stirring mash-ups from the Swedish trio with a purpose to please our aural hollows like only a superstar can. Dominated by productions from established Swede’s and talents of camp Swedish House Mafia, the craving thousands saw Axwell drop, not one, not two, but well over a dozen vital peak-timers throughout the night, including Calling, Levels and the trio’s remix of Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall by Coldplay to name a few. To please a craving crowd with the built-in technics of a mixer and three cd-players has become a crashing ability of the man – who’s all about the heart and its stunning fixtures like purveying a setting of goosebumps along with the aural pleasure a bouncing baseline can provide in combination with catchy big room synths – and his wingmen and is frankly even further astonishing when watching a 2000 strong mob literally go nuts to the monstrous icon’s set of club anthems. To top it all off,  Save The World-vocalist John Martin joined in to celebrate his birthday vibrating his vocal cords to the sing-along hit Swedish House Mafia’s latest single release has become from the looks of last night’s chanting crowd.

Well, I tried but “you can’t explain it – you got to experience it!” Hope these HD videos below will clear things up and be sure to grab yourself a ticket next time any of the three mafioso members is emerging a town near you.

  • 25. ID

    BRUTAL!

  • Axwells set menar jag då :D

  • ni är seriöst riktigt grymma!! kvalitativ skit

  • ID sounds like Axwell, new track maybe?

  • This tracklist lloks ok, its good to see that Ax is playing some differet stuff. His set’s recently have been so similar to SHM sets, he really needs to stop that similar sound….anyway I wish this set was available to download!

  • Amazing evening.. Axwell set was neat and really tight. Perfect evening with alkoholic running thur your veins and melodic housemusic pumping. And to meet ax backstage after his set was a big bonus! HUUUUGE THANKS

  • @ Paul

    the only tracks that are not in their sets are 09. Alex Kenji & Federico Scavo – Get Funky and 25. ID

    the rest of the tracks is all part of their sets last 2 months!

  • Alex Kenji & Federico Scavo – Get Funky [Hotfingers]
    That was a weird track to be in Axwell’s set, but still awesome! Housey house!

  • Norling: The trio has been playing it regularly at Café Mambo and beach gigs this Summer :)

  • I wish I could hear the Axwell playlist … Oh my god.

  • ID doesnt sound Axwellish at all , same tracklist as always .. But its okay

  • What does ID mean?

  • Hello: ID means that the track is either unkown or unnamed. In this case it’s referred to as such since it’s to us unkown.

  • Hmmmm, vems sound är det man hör i ID:n? Någon som vågar slänga ut en vild gissning?

  • Marcus, jag tycker överslingan, pianot och breaket påminner om en Axwell-produktion. Synthen känns inte speciellt Axwell, så det skulle dock inte förvåna mig ifall detta är ett samarbete mellan honom och någon annan!

  • Trummorna i andra droppet är dock inte speciellt Axwell de heller…

  • jag tror Thomas Gold ligger bakom IDn

  • maybe Axwell/Thomas Gold or Axwell/Dirty South collab

  • Track 2 har väll fått namn ? Bandsaw heter den. Knife Party ft. Steve Angello – Bandsaw

  • @Niklas

    Bandsaw is a fake name for the ID. FIrst, Axwell shouldn’t announce it as the new SHM single and then it comes up on youtube as Knife Party & Steve Angello. Second, the uploader on youtube ain’t one of Knife party’s official staff regarding outbound communication.

    Regarding the “ID”, my bet is that this is the new collab between Axwell & Thomas Gold, “Sing to Me”.

  • Det enda negativa som uppstår ifall det är en Axwell-produktion (och Axtone-release då) är att vi kommer få se dess dagsljus någongång runt 2013 typ (om vi nu ska utgå från att det blir den klassiska Axwell-shargongen)

  • Download link??

  • Gissar också på Thomas Gold.

  • galet sett, inte konstigt att han kört på det länge

  • i want to download the tracklist !!!!!!!
