''The Swedish House Mafiosa answers the same questions we ask every month''
IMG_0209.jpg
What did you want be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a farmer.

What's the worst club you've ever been to?
In a Shopping centre in Southberg.

What's been your worst job so far?
I think it was when I worked in a bakery.I was sitting beside a machine that made small cookies and i was just watching them go by and then i had to take away any faulty ones.

What are you obsessed with?
I'm obsessed with synchronising stuff;my calendars,emails,iPod,laptob and studio - it's all synchronised.

What do you hate right now?
Time just goes by really quick.I would like to press pause.

How would you introduce yourself to someone who had never heard of you?
''What's up,you want to party?!''

When amd where were you happiest?
When I've been working on a track for a long time in the studio and i finally get the goosebumps moment.

Have you ever been arrested?
No, I haven't.I'm clean as a baby.

What's the best record ever made?
'Off The Wall', Micheal Jackson.It contains so much.the grooves are just like 'how did they do that?' All the singers are different from each other and all the arrangements.

What's the coolest thing in your house?
I have a ski slope just outside.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever had?
I got this from Stonebridge, he said:''Nobody will look after your career more than yourself''.

Who's your all time hero and why?
i think it has to be Superman,because every once in a while we dream we can fly,and it's pretty fucking amazing, so you get a little glimpse of what he has in his life.

What's your vice?
I can get really junk food obsessed.

What were you doing at 2pm last Sunday?
I was at a pool party in Miami.

Who was your first love and what happened?
That was probably some girl in my kindergarden.We played a lot when we were kids and then we grew up.

what's your answer to everything?
Swear!

On a scale of one to ten,how good are you in the sack?Why?
It depends.If you are in the sack with me because i am a DJ then I'm probably a ten but if you are in the sack with me just being a random guy then probably a five.

What's your most prized possession that you've got from when you were a kid?
I love toy tractors. I still have a box of them.

Have you ever had a homosexual experience?
Just being in a gay club without really knowing what to expect,and also,by being overly afraid,so i was kind if walking around trying to hide my arse,walking around with my arse to the wall.

What was you last big treat for yourself?
That has to be in Miami,when I bought $10,000 worth of Cristal,It was in the club that we were also playing for, so I was expecting it to be free,that's the worst part.When I woke up I asked,''oh, it was $900'',and then said,''no, no, it was $9,900''.It was painfull but i consider it a treat and it kind of works better if you look at it like that.

Do you have a recurring dream?
The one where you're walking around without pants wondering what everyone is looking at.

What would you change about youself if you could?
I would grow a coulple of inches.

If you a Tardis what time would you go back to?
I would go back 20 years and i would take a massive loadn,buy a lot of property.It's not so exciting.

Thanks for your work mate!
Interesting interview, in the most interviews you only hear the same questions. But in this we are learning some about his private life...

BTW I wanna see some pics from the ski slope! :mrgreen:

I think that since we won't get any live sets I'd like some more interviews, studio video/pic updates and stuff... Nice interview

I think i got a little of that $10k worth of champagne sprayed on me at that party! Knowing Mansion I'm not surprised they charged 'em for it, but I'm sure they made that club a LOT of money. SHM were on from i think 1:30am till 6:30am and the place was packed ALL NIGHT. One of the best parties i've ever been to!

Mixmag asks everyone the same set of questions each month, so it's nothing Axwell-specific. Kinda cool how they do that though, they get a lot of interesting interviews!
