If the past decade is any indication, Axel Hedfors, best known as Axwell, is by all accounts a dance music icon of the highest calibre. Be it his widely known perfectionism or simply his vast creativity and uncanny sense for what’s a hit and what’s not, but an Axwell production has never had any problems in finding its spot amongst the créme de la créme of club music anthems.
But more than three years in the waiting, Ax ups the ante to preview the remode version of his eagerly-anticipated solo outing ‘Center Of The Universe’, the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Heart Is King’. As given a world premiere spin on tonight’s episode of Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, the remode of ‘Center Of The Universe’ sees Axwell well in his element with a mix of resonant melodies and the renowned top line courtesy of Swedish singer-songwriter Magnus Carlson, replacing the original’s blissful synth work to create a slightly heavier-set version.
