Former member of electro-house supergroup Swedish House Mafia, Axwell (Axel Hedfors) has also established himself as an artist in his own right, finding worldwide success as a DJ and producer, as well as receiving five Grammy nominations.

Having shown a love for music from an early age, Axwell soon found the wonders of electronic music and dived into making his own productions and developing his skills as a DJ. Teaming up with Isabel Fructoso early in his career for the duo, Mambana, they quickly signed to Soulfuric Recordings, releasing a string of singles under this moniker. Axwell found his first chart success with the single “Burning” in 2003, which broke into the Billboard dance charts and was a dance floor hit. In 2005, he established his own label, Axtone, helping to provide more control over his output.

Several well-supported remixes and singles followed, yet it was his partnership with Steve Angello and Sebastien Ingress, as Swedish House Mafia that Axwell was to receive widespread fame. In 2009, the trio had signed a major label contract with EMI, producing their debut in 2010. Their first single, “One,” featuring Pharrell Williams on vocals, was a huge chart success, breaking into the Top Ten in charts across Europe. Their debut album, “Until One” soon followed, before the members announced they were to return to their solo careers, after a whirlwind of tours. Their second record, 2012’s “Until Now,” appeared as a farewell to their fans, followed by a celebratory tour.

Returning back to his solo productions, Axwell released a remix of Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl’s “In My Mind,” becoming a global hit and also receiving a Grammy nomination. A year later in 2013, Axwell showed no sign of letting up his success, finding another hit with his track, “Centre of the Universe,” which went to number one on Beatport. Axle’s prowess as a global superstar DJ was acknowledged by DJ Magazine’s 2013 poll, placing him at number 19.
