About Steve Angello
Steve Angello is a multi-platinum selling electronic musician, record producer, DJ, and entrepreneur. Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Angello is best known for his innovative marketing as well as his involvement with super group Swedish House Mafia. His foray into music began at the age of 12, when he started as a young Turntablist fusing together hip-hop, breakbeats and 1970s classics. It wasn’t until Angello’s late teen years that he took an interest in electronic music and quickly became entrenched in Stockholm’s House music scene. Angello’s rise to fame came with the release of his innovative remix of the Eurythmics classic “Sweet Dreams” in late 2004. That was soon followed by a slew of signature tracks, including “Woz Not Woz,” “KNAS,” “Rave n’ Roll” and his super hit with Supermode (Steve & Axwell) that established him as a force in House music. Steve is also an established record producer having worked on a number of A-list projects that include David Guetta’s “Baby When the Light” (featuring Cozi), Taio Cruz’s “Troublemaker,” “Shortcaller,” and “Positive,” will.i.am’s “This Is Love” (featuring Eva Simons), and Usher’s “Numb” and “Euphoria,” to name a few. In 2003, Steve founded the record label SIZE which has been home to many internationally acclaimed artists including Avicii, Tiësto, Eric Prydz, Depeche Mode, Sebastian Ingrosso, Laidback Luke, Nicky Romero, Afrojack, Jacques Lu Cont and Steve Angello himself. In August 2013 SIZE celebrated its tenth anniversary with the release of "SLVR" (pronounced "Silver"). In March 2014, SIZE teamed up with Angello’s creative agency, Rebels Studios, to celebrate its 10 year anniversary by releasing the label’s entire catalog of 100 releases. During the month long award-winning campaign titled #DECADE, SIZE made more than 10 years of music available to fans to download for free through Google Play.
