Ten years ago, Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso released the song that effectively marks a decade of Swedish House Mafia. This was one of their earliest tracks together under their individual names. And even today, “Leave The World Behind” still remains one of most iconic pieces of dance music to ever be written, considered to be one of Swedish House Mafia‘s greatest.
The track was originally released as the second single from the trio in collaboration with fellow superstar DJ, Laidback Luke. Owing to its masterful production, Leave the World Behind became one of the most talked about tracks of WMC 2009. And some might even say this was the true start of Swedish House Mafia as a super-group.
Even now in 2019 “Leave the World Behind” stands the test of time unlike many other tracks of its age & even calibre. While we all love ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ & ‘Don’t You Worry Child’, there just is something else about ‘Leave The World Behind’. The combined production talent of the trio & Laidback Luke coupled with a stunning vocal performance by Deborah Cox makes this track impossible to forget.
And hearing this track again makes you really think what could they be cooking up in the studio now after even more years of experience under their belt. Well, I can say one thing it will be hella amazing for sure! And with their 1st Stockholm show just around the corner, I like everyone else I do hope they drop new music soon.
