After exploding on to the scene in 2010, the Swedes followed up their huge genre-defining club track “One” with the worldwide platinum-selling single “Miami 2 Ibiza” featuring Tinie Tempah, their first single to hit #1 on the Billboard club chart. Both tracks appeared on their 2010 compilation album ‘Until One’, which is still in the UK top 50 chart nearly two years after its release. The boys followed this with their second Billboard club chart topper and Grammy-nominated “Save The World” last Summer, also a huge hit around the globe. They ended 2011 playing to 20,000 people at New York’s Madison Square Garden which sold out in a staggering 9 minutes. 2012 so far has seen the release of the highest charting club track on Billboard club chart ever (#3) – “Antidote” – a collaboration with Pendulum’s Knife Party, a second bigger and better Masquerade Motel in Miami and the release of the incendiary “Greyhound” (an all-Swedish collaboration with Absolut Vodka). This Summer SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA bid a glorious farewell to the UK in spectacular fashion with their biggest headline show to date at Milton Keynes Bowl against a show-stopping backdrop of lasers, fireworks and flames.
