Sobre Axwell

Last update: February, 2017

Axel Christofer Hedfors, better known by electronic music fans as Axwell, is one of the best DJs and electronic music producers of all time. Born in Sweden in 1977, he has a more than enviable and very successful musical career. He reached the top of the electronic music scene along with his two friends and Swedish DJs Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, with whom he formed the famous Swedish House Mafia in 2006.

The Swedish DJ has plenty of songs that have passed into history for its success in the dance floor. Among them there are Leave The World Behind, with Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, the Dutch DJ Laidback Luke and Deborah Cox, or classics like Tell Me Why, What a Wonderful World, I Found U or Nothing But Love For You, with the voice of Errol Reid.

After a few years in solitary, in 2005 the prestigious Swedish DJ Axwell began collaborating with whom years later he would form the Swedish House Mafia, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello. They collaborated on songs like Dumb or Leave the World Behind. They started to have success and decided to join their careers. They made several worldwide known songs such as One, Miami 2 Ibiza, Save The World, Antidote, Greyhound and Don’t You Worry Child. They were spectacularly successful as a trio on stage. In 2010 they were awarded as best Swedish artists by MTV Europe Music Awards. In late 2012, they announced they were separating and starting a world tour that would end in March 2013, at the Ultra Music Festival Miami.

In 2014, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso joined to form the duo Axwell  Ingrosso who made different hit songs such as Something New, On My Way, Can’t Hold Us Down or Sun Is Shining. These two DJs are a clear example of reinvention and re-adaptation to changing times we live in. Having these two DJs adapted perfectly to their previous separation made them keep on top of the electronic scene. On the other hand, Steve Angello, the third of this trio of excellent producers also reinvented himself and went on his way alone and, in late 2015, he realesed a part of their first album, Wild Youth.

The famous DJ Axwell owns one of the best record labels in the electronic scene. It is called Axtone Records and is located in London, UK.
