Swedish House Mafia covers this week’s issue of Billboard as the DJ trio approaches their final show at Ultra Music Festival 2013. Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell discuss the impending split, their secret fourth member, manager Amy Thompson (“She’s the driving force for any of this to ever take place,” says Axwell) and more.
“We’re letting go of something huge,” Axwell admits to Billboard. “We got handed the key to the city and we said, ‘Thank you, that’s awesome. There you go.’ [Mimes handing key back.] So, it’s stupid in many ways. It’s also a little bit refreshing.”
“I think it’s a lot of stupid,” Ingrosso cracks.
“We had a massive fucking argument, and then we massively fixed it,” Thomson says.
