Yesterday was a very special day for BBC Radio 1 listeners as Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello, together known as the Swedish House Mafia sat in for the second time to host the legendary Pete Tong‘s two hour radio show. The SHM broadcasted from Steve’s studio in Los Angeles and were joined by a very special guest none other than Joel Zimmerman aka deadmau5! To kick off the show the Mafia debut their brand new track “Greayhound” that immediately got me out of my seat. The two hour long show was jam packed with the best that dance music has to offer at the moment. Deadmau5 dropped a mini-mix consisting of some new material and also showed love to an up and coming group that I am very excited about because one member walked the halls of my high school back in Manhattan Beach CA! The group I speak of is No Body and their new collab with Deth Hertz “Ready 2 Fly” was first given love from the mau5 back in January when he dropped it at his birthday party in Vegas. Enough from me as I will now send it over to Ax, Seb and Steve! (My apologies if the dL doesn’t work, I will try and keep looking for new ones but they are pretty good about keeping this one off limits).

WOW! I seriously cannot explain how far my expectations were exceeded by the insane performance Axwell dropped on the sold out Hollywood Palladium last Saturday night. Insomniac seriously went all-in with the full experience for this insane party as it was truly unforgettable! Ideal LED screen setup, smoke cannons, epic light show, mass amounts of streamers and confetti, and yes, LASERS!! His track selection had to be the best I have ever experienced and featured most of my favorite anthems at the moment. I’m having serious trouble thinking about a better overall performance that I have witnessed. If you were not at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles this past Saturday night, you blew it big time. Lucky for you there is a treat waiting below!

For those of you who missed out, someone captured the entire set and has posted it on youtube in very good quality. If you wish to not watch the entire set, the first video posted is a 25 minute recap that sums up the entire spectacle in one video. I am still speechless over this one hell of a Techy Party, and cannot wait for the next one! Until then… rage on PARTY PEOPLE!!
The first video is not as good quality but not terrible. Part 2-10 is very good quality and thanks to nartnoside for the youtube uploads!
