Armed with a slew of new CDs and enough confidence to rebuild Hadrian’s Wall, Steve Angello destroyed the Space terrace at the inaugural Ibiza opening on May 31st 2009. In truth, the momentum had been building for Steve Angello for some time - from his globe-straddling Moby remix of ‘Raining Again’, to the anthemic re-working of ‘Tell Me Why’ with Axwell, to the now unmistakable ‘Be’ with Laidback Luke. ‘Be’ then returned in spirit as ‘Show Me Love’ with original vocalist Robin S and Laidback Luke in tow, smashing clubs and Top Ten charts into tiny pieces everywhere it was dropped.
Jump to November 2009 and Steve Angello releases ‘The Yearbook’ – a collection of his finest production work to date - including the devious ‘Alpha Baguera’ and euphoric ‘Monday’. The Yearbook was an unforgettable milestone in Steve’s stellar career. Since this offers have flooded in and projects with Pharrell Williams, Cheryl Cole and Kid Sister have filled his diary. A massive talent in his own right and as one third of the unstoppable Swedish House Mafia alongside Axwell and Ingrosso, Steve’s ascent into the dance music elite continues with his latest remix of Magnetic Man’s ‘Perfect Stranger’ having just been named Hottest Record in the World by Zane Lowe and his latest solo offering, the bass heavy ‘Knas’ having torn up every festival arena in the world this summer.
Having now decamped to Los Angeles, where Steve spends at least 50% of his time, his creativity and inner confidence has reached new levels. When he wakes up, Angello is still very much the A & R supremo for his beloved Size Records. The label is now firing hit after hit with the most upfront talent in electronic music including releases from the man himself, his protégé AN21, Kim Fai, Max Vangeli, Afrojack, Funkagenda, Tim Berg aka Avicii, Norman Doray, Tong & Spoon, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Harry Romero, Junior Sanchez and Alexander Technique to name but a few.
Steve’s hunger for success in both music and business is clear – with producing for Interscope in LA and also the birth of Size Matters in 2010, an event concept bringing to life the ground-breaking label of the same name. Huge parties at WMC in Miami, Ibiza Rocks Hotel and smash US and UK tours, a merchandise range and now a compilation to boot – Size Matter’s continues to go from strength to strength. Summer 2010 saw the launch of Steve’s amazing new Sizemic Jarag Light Wall, featuring lights that were used in the original Star Wars – demonstrating once again that Steve thinks big in everything he delivers.
