Biografie

Any member of the legendary house ‘band’ Swedish House Mafia will always be proud to call himself one third of the group. The three men from Stockholm have, however, gone their separate ways in 2013. Axwell, born Axel Christofer Hedfers, was already an artist with quite the career before he joined the group. Axwell had already taught himself to play the drums by the age of nine, only to trade in the drums for a computer when he reached 13. His first personal success arrived by late 2004 when he released the global hit ‘Feel the Vibe’ under Ministry of Sound. His first track leading up to the Swedish House Mafia times began when he released ‘Tell Me Why’ with fellow Mafioso Steve Angello. The song reached #13 in the UK and #3 in the Netherlands. This artist is known to be versatile, turning any type of song (from any type of genre) into a dance floor filler. He has remixed for the likes of Madonna, Nelly Furtado, Moby and Pharell Williams. For Axwell it’s all about asking questions. ‘Would I play this?’, would I drop this during the peak of my set?’, ‘is this the craziest thing I ever heard?’. He is a DJ/Producer who puts all his efforts and talents into creating music people go nuts to, and boy do they ever. He picked up his solo career after SHM as successfully as it was before the formation of the group, reaching a Beatport number one hit with his single ‘Center of the Universe'. To spread the word of Axwell, the DJ has his own record label Axtone, which features artists such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Laidback Luke and Eric Prydz, but also fellow band members Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello. Though the trio has split up, their desire to work together hasn’t gone away, with him and Sebastian Ingrosso having their own club night in Ibiza at Ushuaïa called ‘Departures’. By the looks of it, his answer to his own question ‘is this the craziest I ever heard?’ is no, because it seems he keeps delivering one crazy track after another. Keep asking the questions Axwell!
