Nine years ago Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso came to ‘Save The World’ as the Swedish House Mafia. The iconic dance hit ‘Save The World’ ironically, helped to save revive music and bring the electronic dance music scene into the maintstream spotlight.
Alongside acts like David Guetta, Avicii, Benny Benassi and Calvin Harris, the Swedes were responsible for catapulting electronic music (or ‘EDM’ as it was soon coined), from underground clubs and those in the know, to the airwaves of major radio stations all across the world.
An exponential growth in listeners found their gateway into the dance music scene thanks to the work of Swedish House Mafia, and ‘Save The World’ became one of the most popular tracks of all time; with vocalist John Martin returning a year later on their collaboration ‘Don’t You Worry Child’.
Nine years later, and now, the world is in need of saving more than ever before. As the Coronavirus pandemic spreads worldwide with a truly devastating impact. Life as we know it has been placed on hold, with health now a paramount importance. With that in mind, there’s never been a better time to relive this absolute classic and spread some much needed joy. Celebrating its ninth birthday today following release in May 2011, ‘Save The World’ truly sounds as timeless ever.
