Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello Is Looking Forward to Being Finished With Swedish House Mafia
When the huge One Last Tour production comes to a close in late March, (the final set will be at Miami's Ultra Music Festival), Angello will remain busy. He's an established solo artist who first came to prominence with a 2004 remix of the Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams," and recently released his single "Yeah." A solo album is in the works. He's also the founder and head of Size Records, which represents artists including AN21 and Max Vangeli.
For the next few months though, Angello will country hop, (Jakarta, Mumbai, Cape Town, Guadalajara, Toronto, etc.). As for the L.A. stop, "We have so many friends [there]," Angello says. "We had never done Masquerade Motel there. It's like a thank you to the city."
Angello in fact lives in town for part of the year, and says he loves Los Angeles for the weather, the chi chi sushi restaurant Nobu, ("it's like my second home when I'm in L.A.), and for the solitude, of all things. "I love the privacy of just driving around the city alone in my car," he says. "For me, that's one of the best parts about the place. "
As for his plans after the tour is done in March, Angello says he just wants life to be normal again. "The first thing I'll do," he says, "is take my family to an island somewhere and just disappear for awhile."
So, again, relatively normal.
