Swedish House Mafia announces One Last Tour dates + More
After dropping a series of clues through its Facebook channel, the Swedish House Mafia has finally announced details for One Last Tour. The worldwide trip includes a three-night stand at Friends Arena in Stockholm, dates in Dubai, Mumbai and Delhi, a cluster of shows around Europe, North America and Canada…but sadly nothing for Australia. In 2013, the Swedes will stop again at New York’s historic Madison Square Garden, before winding up the circuit at L.A. Historic Park. Head to the official site for dates, or just take a look at the list below.
The trio’s dividing its swansong up into a few different components: the final single Don’t You Worry Child, a final tour and the release of one last compilation mix. The official soundtrack to SHM’s last tour is a mix of selections from the group’s back catalogue, mashups, edits and previously unreleased material including the Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash collaboration Reload. TheUntil Now compilation will be released on October 19.
“We just decided that we reached a point where we don’t know what the next move would be,” Steve Angello told Rolling Stone about the decision to call it quits. “We always like the challenge. And we don’t like to repeat ourselves. We just felt like, ‘let’s stop touring’.” After the final hurrah, the focus for all three members will be on their individual labels and production projects. Angello has Size Matters to steer, with recruits like AN21, Max Vangeli and Third Party. Axwell has Axtone Records and a string of DJ commitments, while Sebastian Ingrosso leads Refune Records with protégé Alesso on the up and up.

Listen to the New Flying Lotus Album
Well, it’s finally here. About a week before its official release on October 2 via Warp, you can listen to the fourth LP by Los Angeles producer Flying Lotus, Until the Quiet Comes.Though it seems like we’ve heard just about all of Steven Ellison’s new album in the form of short films, music videos, and various snippets, today marks the first time you can listen to every last second of the 18-track, 47-minute record. Head over to NPR to do just that.
James Blake Announces UK Gigs and New Releases
Electronica producer James Blake will return to the UK for a string of performances from November.
With sales of his 2011 self-titled album at nearly half a million and a string of international sets at both clubs and festivals under his belt in 2012, James’ tour coincides with the release of Harmoni remixes of Trimbal’s ‘Confidence Boost’ and ‘Saying’ – Trimbal being a duo of Blake and ex-member of Roll Deep, Trim.
‘Confidence Boost’ gets music-video treatment by Rollo Jackson, known for his video production for Hot Chip, Franz Ferdinand The 2 Bears.
Having not played a UK event for almost a year, Blake’s tour at present begins in London on the November 23 at R&S Records Showcase at The Hydra. So far dates have been announced in London, Bristol and Manchester, with pre-sale tickets available online from Tuesday September 25.
Chugg Entertainment bringing U.S. dance festival, Lights All Night, to Australia
Australian touring giant Chugg Entertainment is set to wade into the crowded dance festival market,according to a report by themusic.com.au. In 2013, Chugg plans to import Lights All Night, a festival from dance music’s current boom-market, North America, with dates still to be announced.
Staged by Highland Entertainment, Lights All Night happens in Dallas, Texas, over the New Year’s period, and it’s expanding to a three-day festival to welcome 2013. The line-up in Dallas this New Year’s includes top-billers Tiesto, Avicii, Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Axwell and Texan hometown heroes Ghostland Observatory, with an undercard that includes Alesso, Gareth Emery, Diplo,Sander van Doorn and Flux Pavilion.
The first hint that Lights All Night would be expanding to Australia came in a news report in theDallas News (not one of our regular news sources, admittedly). “Highland Entertainment and Aussie-based concert promoter Chugg Entertainment will join forces for a Lights All Night down under in 2013,” concluded the report.
“We’re all really excited about this new venture to bring Lights All Night to our shores,” Chugg Entertainment’s CEO Matthew Lazarus-Hall told themusic. “It’s new territory for us, delving into the electronic scene, but it’s a great concept and we feel it’ll work really well in Australia.”
A dance festival is certainly new ground for Chugg, with its current tour schedule including names like Elton John, Coldplay, Keith Urban and Kelly Clarkson. In addition to the big-room-geared headliners, Lights All Night puts a particular focus on bass-heavy sounds, which could give a clue to the direction of the Australian leg. Stay tuned for more details on inthemix as we have them.
