The World's Best DJ's Come From.....Where?
Where do the world's best House/Techno/Dance DJ's come from? The easy answer used to be the Netherlands. But as crazy as it seems, some of the best music right now is coming from a place called Sweden! This occurred to me last Thursday night as I was listening to the Swedish Top 20 Countdown on Sirius/XM as presented by the hilarious Swedish DJ duo of Dada Life. Other Swedish DJ's you couldn't have missed these past few years include Avicii/Tim Berg, StoneBridge, Eric Prydz and Basshunter. Before they came together, DJ's Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello and Axwell were well-know individually as great producers and remixers. After they came together they became better known as Swedish House Mafia! And let's not forget Marcus Schössow, Alesso (who was at Roxy earlier this month) and Alex Sayz. Yes, crazy as it seems, the EDM scene right now is dominated by.......Sweden!
