When Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso announced a musical partnership last year, many fans wondered how their music and live shows would compare to those of Swedish House Mafia, the defunct group they formed with Steve Angello. A year later, the two finished up an astounding summer tour as Axwell Λ Ingrosso, complete with major festival gigs and headlining shows. Luckily, their summer experience was documented, and now an expertly edited recap video shares thousands of amazing moments from their tour.
Directed and edited by Nicolas Caeyers, the video highlights their performances at such festivals as Tomorrowland, Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, and more. Caeyers pulls footage from candid moments to juxtapose the insane performance shots against smaller moments, like the two meeting elated fans backstage. Snappy editing and directing gives the video a blockbuster feel, a fitting aesthetic for a duo who elicits powerful emotions from their performances. And as evidenced by their statement to DJ Mag, the two put so much work into their shows as a way to celebrate their dedicated fanbase.
