Criminal intentions or not – Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, better known as the Swedish House Mafia has (not very quietly) taken over the club world lately. Their anthem Leave the world behind, featuring Laidback Luke and Deborah Cox, is one of the biggest house tracks of the year. In March, Swedish House Mafia honcho Steve Angello ended up in the celeb gossip columns after a dj booth punch up with Paris Hilton’s boyfriend at the Miami WMC – and was hailed as a hero by the global dj community for litterally hitting back on year’s of ill-advised song requests.
So spring was good to the Mafia – but summer might prove to be even better. June 22nd sees them move into Pacha for a Monday residency at the most legendary of Ibiza’s night clubs. Pacemaker celebrates the occassion with a live mix from Axwell’s appearance on Kiss 100 recently – and a few words with the mafioso himself.

So Axwell, the Swedish House Mafia night at Pacha is called The Dark Forest. What’s that all about?

– Usually when there’s a resident night at Pacha, they hang some logo from the ceiling. We wanted to go big, so we spent a 100 000 euros on the interior and hired people working with the Shakespeare Theatre in London to do the decoration. They’re putting up trees, wolves’ heads and stuff. It’s a disco version of Lord of the Rings. It will be fucking brutal.

Will you, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso play all nights?
– We will play back-to-back on the opening party, and also on two more nights later in the season. But two of us will be there on every night. On the opening, Bob Sinclar joins us in the booth. Later on Dirty South, Dizzee Rascal and Basement Jaxx will have guest spots.

Bob Sinclar said in an interview that after his wife, Axwell is his ”second love”?

– Yeah, we have a nice little relationship going.

Who are you replacing at Pacha?
– Roger Sanchez. I know him a little, but I don’t know why he left. Last time we played at the same spot we shared room backstage. Unfortunately I had a bunch of friends with me and trashed the place before Roger actually played his set. I hope he didn’t feel dissed.

Are Paris Hilton and her boyfriend, whoever he is at the moment, welcome at Pacha?

– I suspect not, actually. If they turn up we will probably throw them out.

So what do you have coming up production wise?
– Since we released Leave the world behind I have mostly been working on an album, but that takes a hell of a long time. :shock: :D The plan is to spend the summer building up my label Axtone. I’m releasing a track by Denis the Menace called The first rebirth, which you can hear in the mix, and I also have a new guy from Sweden called Adrian Lux who’s coming out with his stuff.
