for me it always depends on the time I'm playing and the crowd. be spontaneous!

Agree with kaiser. If you want to play an axwell opening, he use to open with Sebastian Tellier - Sexual Sportswear mixed in with Dirty South - Let it go (Axwell Remix) in many of his sets.

There are so many ways to go... I'd make a "Watch the sunrise"- Mashup eg... the vocals and the guitar rocks...

Basically I would recommend a "commercial" intro... start with the easy tracks - and go on...

My axwellish beginning could be something like this:

- First, I'd go with a Let it go bootleg I have and I guess you can find it around, it's the Enur - Calabria track vs the Axwell Remix for Let it go, pretty cool thing...
- Then I'd reproduce that Watch the sunrise vs Apocalypse bootleg that's not available but not too hard to do live, I can do it myself and I'm just getting started, just need to pitch up or down Apocalypse so that both sound perfect together.
- Then take it to some of the tracks he's been spinning or some instrumentals, it's not about vocals all the time so maybe go with Rotterdam, throw in Submariner for sure...
- Save W.W.W. for the big ending, it's worth it :D

Just my opinion though!

that's some cool advice, thanks
I have some possibilities to go now :)
saw a opening of morillo with Make Your Own Kind of Music (muttoheads remix) which was pretty cool too, he also has been opening his set with Calabria (kurd maverick)
agreed on letting WWW for the end ;)
gonna also try to do a "Tell me Why" transition, the one he did with Exceeder

For me i would drop Chris Ortega ft. Chandler P. - Separated .for an intro its used by erick morillo for many of this his sets and it makes the crowd goes mad every time u can see it in his gig in pacha sharm then i would gone along with axwell bomb for the end its www or open your heart with a mash maybe missing or deep fear & if u played open your heart try hitting www w/ every time we touch , and it will get the crowd on again
maybe some dirty south like the end maybe D 10 then maybe Stephan Luke - Pressure followed by brain cross - paradise (marco v remix) and for
the rest For the axwell hits from tell me why to mash ups with Rotterdam
and that will do it form me :D
