The Swedish Dj/producer, born in Greece, has come a long way to reach where he is today. With his hard work and hunger for success he has proven that every little step brings you closer to where you want to be!
Son of a Greek father and a Swedish mother, Steve grew up in a suburb of Stockholm, along with his brother Antoine Josefsson (known as AN21). Obsessed with music from a young age, he began to Dj at local clubs after school, inspired by artists such as Nas, Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd and Daft Punk.
In 2003 he founded Size Records and inaugurated the label with the self-billed Simplicity EP but the biggest hit in his early career was “Woz Not Woz”, a collaboration with Eric Prydz. Since then Steve has released many successful hits such as “Tell Me Why”, “Yeah”, “SLVR”, Payback” and many more.
One of the greatest moments of his career came as member of the legendary Swedish House Mafia, formed by him, Axwell, Ingrosso and Eric Prydz (although only for a short term). The trio released hits like “Save The World”, “Greyhound”, “One” and “Don’t You Worry Child”, which are still played today in all the festivals.
However, in 2013 they decided it was time to follow their own paths in the music industry. They reached to a point where they did not know what to do next.
By this time Steve was already working in his solo album – Wild Youth – which claims to be a “continuous story” of how he grew up, it is a journey throughout his transition from being a kid, instigated against the system, sad and confused at the loss of his father when he was 13, to his adulthood.
It is also a different time in his life, with the birth of his two daughters he stopped touring so much, trying to spend as much time as possible with his family. However, he is going through one of the best moments of his career, with the release of Wild Youth, his monthly Residency at BBC Radio 1 and his organization Size Foundation, that primarily focus on helping children in impoverished communities receive the education they deserve.
The Swedish Dj/producer, who came to Portugal this summer to perform at MEO Sudoeste and last year at EDP Beach Party has told in his last Residency that due to his large number of shows in 2017 he will not be going to continue with the radio show.
Today Steve Angello becomes 34 years old, and in the name of Wide Future and the whole team we wish you a Happy Birthday.
