Swedish superstars Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello and Axwell have finally confirmed that they are getting back together. After a lot of speculation and a Swedish House Mafia surprise show in Miami for Ultra Music Festival, they are now officially letting the news spread out all over the social media. However, in a recent interview that Ingrosso had with Swedish news website Metro, he made something pretty clear: the Axwell / Ingrosso Project will take a break for now. Read an extract from the interview below:
Are you (SHM) back in the studio?
– Yes you could say that. We’ll be after the summer and try to do something fun together.
Why a reunion so shortly after you said goodbye five years ago?
– I do not think it has been such a short time. Me and Axwell did our thing and Steve did his thing, and Axwell and I felt we had done our thing for five years. We felt it was time, we missed it. And above all, we had fans who wanted us to reunite […]”
Will you continue with Axwell / Ingrosso while doing Swedish House Mafia?
– No, we will not do that, we will actually put it on the shelf. As I usually say, there are three dots, it’s not two plus a dot. But we will definitely still do our individual stuff.
Of course, there’s no reason to panic, as the trio will be back stronger than ever. The SHM hype they created during Tomorrowland spoke for itself. When will their comeback gig be? Tomorrowland Winter perhaps? Stay tuned for more info!

If you haven’t had the opportunity to party with the iconic purple Jaenga Bus – which has been graced by the likes of Griz, Slushii, Space Jesus, Protohype, and more – Jaenga‘s new video for “Never Gonna” is your chance. Fresh off his first release with Deadbeats, Toulambi, this elegant drum and bass track swaggers in with deep bass lines and disco-styled vocals in perfect harmony.
While most festival stages are custom built, the Jaenga Bus rolls up ready to go with a renegade vibe that encourages collaboration between artists. The intimate setting the bus creates by connecting artist and audience in close quarters takes sets to the next level. “Never Gonna” encapsulates the transformation the bus and artist have taken, complete with quintessential Brooklyn, New York scenery.
“It’s been an insane trip so far, I’m excited in 2019 to share this movement,” said Jaenga of the project. “It’s stronger than I’ve ever seen.”
