It's been just a couple weeks since Steve Angello and his Swedish House Mafia comrades tore through town during Winter Music Conference. But Miami just can't get enough of these guys' suave looks and big-room beats, and so Angello returns solo this Saturday for one of his biggest gigs here to date, at Club Space.
Consider it a coronation for the head of possibly the biggest group, currently, in commercial dance music. Though Angello and pals Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso all boast club roots, their slightly techy, electro-inflected, and progressive take on house has coincided perfectly with the clubbing Zeitgeist. To wit: In Miami this year, the trio played its first-ever headlining slot on the main stage of Ultra Music Festival.
Angello particularly seems poised for crossover stardom; in March he told New Times he had been working in L.A. on productions for an as-yet-unrevealed pop artist. While the era of the superstar DJ seemed over, Angello may be proving that wrong. Catch him on the Space terrace before he's engulfed by an even bigger wave of hype.
