Swedish House Mafia Reunion FREE
Their split in 2013 took the EDM world by surprise. After forming in 2008 and releasing two amazing albums, Swedish House Mafia looked to be one of the best EDM artist collaborations ever. And that was, in fact, part of their reason for splitting: They felt they had done all they could do together, and felt they couldn't keep producing such fresh tunes. So, rather than keep milking the phenomenon, they retreated to focus on their own projects.
However understandable their reasons for splitting were, fans everywhere have been holding onto the hope that they might come back together. After all, given nearly six years to work on their own music and projects, they have no doubt developed new techniques and ideas to explore with one another. In fact, they had even said as much. During their hiatus Axwell explicitly said that he would not rule out a reunion forever. That "Maybe one day something will happen inside of us that says 'boom'."
For a while, that seemed like a fairly empty musing. After all, they weren't exactly doing badly on their own. During their hiatus they each worked on an array of hit singles, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso formed Axwell Λ Ingrosso in 2014, and Steve Angello released his debut studio album in 2016. It seemed they were really making the most of their time apart, and many fans began to lose hope that the supergroup would actually have a reason to get back together.
