Make no mistake: Swedish selectors are everywhere. From Axwell and Avicii to Eric Prydz and Ida Engberg, they're a nation of electronic afficionados, from pumping vocal house and epic trance synths to the deep, angular rhythms of Stockholm techno imprint Drum Code. As this mix testifies, the Swedish stamp is everywhere, from the premiere league Swedes right across the (wild) pitch. From Pleasurekraft and Style Of Eye to Adam Beyer, the floodgates have been well and truly broken. And it's not just the stadium-stomping Swedish House Mafia either: they even have protégées now!
In truth, SHM have helped usher in almost everyone who appears on the seventy-minute mix you now own. Opening with a brand new Eric Prydz remix of 'Midnight City' by M83 (a song which has proved to be to 2012 what MGMT's ‘Kids’ was to 2008), it's been remixed and rebooted for way bigger rooms than French musician Anthony Gonzalez could have ever expected by Steve and Seb's oldest production buddy Eric 'Pryda' Prydz. From there, the mix dives into Above and Beyond protégée Arty territory, who also appears later on in the mix thanks to a timely new refix of 'Punk' by Ferry Corsten. What's scary is he's just 22 years old.
