Axwell Λ Ingrosso, one of the most beloved acts in EDM, recently sat down for a revealing 30-minute interview with Zach Sang and no topic was off limits!
The electronic duo talked their More Than You Know EP, tour life, work flow, constantly reinventing their sound, Swedish House Mafia, changes in the music industry, how they complete each other, misconceptions about “pressing play,” overrated Vegas residencies, and so much more. They also gave their honest opinions on artists like Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and even The Chainsmokers.
A Λ I’s brand new four-track EP and the interview are a lot a like — both cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. Axwell broke down the leading single “Renegade” and More Than You Know EP like so:
“It’s four diverse songs from us that really gives you a little bit of everything. For example, the first one is called ‘How Do You Feel Right Now,’ which is a song that we’ve played a lot in our live shows. Just a great party starter. ‘Renegade’ is like a LA Friday afternoon in your car. Just chilling and going to a party. Then eventually, at that said party, you’ll be listening to the song called ‘More Than You Know,’ which is full on festival — let’s go! Then eventually, at that same party where you’ve stayed a little bit too long and the sun is coming up, you’ll listen to this song called ‘Dawn’ which is like a sort-of progressive electronic symphony.”
The in-depth, high energy interview is both fun and insightful, and it’s awesome to see how down-to-earth they are while on top of their game! Watch below, and listen to Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s More Than You Know EP here!
