Steve Angello (born Steven Angello Josefsson Fragogiannis; 22 November 1982) is a Greek-Swedish disc jockey, record producer and record label owner. Angello was a member of Swedish House Mafia, together with Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso.

Biography[edit]

Angello was born to a Greek father and Swedish mother in Athens, Greece. Raised in Stockholm, Sweden, along with his brother AN21,[1] Angello began his musical and particularly dj-ing foray at 12 years of age.[2]

He started out as a Turntablist, fusing hip-hop, breakbeats and 1970s classics. By his late teens, Angello began getting into electronic music.[3] Angello discovered House music through the club scene in Stockholm together with his best friend Sebastian Ingrosso, whilst listening to Da Funk. He was quoted to have "had a musical orgasm listening to this (song)."

Background[edit]

Angello's claim to fame came when he released his remix of Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams" in late 2004. Since then, he has established himself in the house music scene with such signature Beatport tracks as "KNAS", "Rave n' Roll" and "Yeah". He also accompanied his size edits for Junior Sanchez and Tim Mason, and made notable remix of the Robin S. track, "Show Me Love". Steve Angello is a prolific producer, with remixes for Pendulum's 'The Island' alongside industry peers Max Vangeli and AN21 and his own cut of Alex Metric's 'Open Your Eyes'. As a producer, his style can mainly be classified as house music with theatrical and epic themes.

Angello has produced under several different aliases. On his own, he has called himself Who's Who and released tracks called "Not So Dirty" and "Sexy F*ck". He often works closely with his childhood friend Sebastian Ingrosso on many projects. Aside from DJing together, they have also produced under the names Buy Now, Fireflies, General Moders, Mode Hookers, Outfunk, and The Sinners.

He has produced with Eric Prydz under the name A&P Project. Also, he has created a track with his friend Axwell under the name Supermongo, later renamed Supermode. They made a cover of an old Bronski Beat track, calling it "Tell Me Why". This was released via Ministry of Sound's Data Records imprint in summer 2006. He is also famous for "Open Your Eyes", a FIFA 12 track since the release on 13 September of FIFA 12.

Steve Angello was also a member of Swedish House Mafia, which is composed of him, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Axwell. Under "Swedish House Mafia", they have produced hits such as "Save the World", "Antidote", "Greyhound", "One","Miami 2 Ibiza", and "Don't You Worry Child".

He also owns his own record label, Size Records, which houses many artists including Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, Matisse & Sadko, Still Young, Tim Mason, Qulinez, Third Party, Junior Sanchez, AN21 & Max Vangeli and supports releases by Tommy Trash, Arno Cost, Marcus Schossow, Moguai, Ivan Gough, Henrix, and Wayne & Woods.

Angello's brother, Antoine Josefsson, is also a DJ and producer who goes by the name of AN21.[4] Together they have released the tracks "Valodja", "Flonko" & "Swing N Swoosh" and "GODS", along with Sebjak. Steve Angello often tours with his brother and with his brother's partner, American DJ and producer Max Vangeli. Together AN21 & Max Vangeli, as they're more commonly known as, released the first non-compilation studio album in Size Records entitled People of the Night.

Personal life[edit]

Steve Angello is married to Swedish model and TV personality Isabel Adrian[5] and they have two daughters, Monday-Lily, born in 2010 and Winter-Rose born on 6 April 2012. He currently resides part-time in Los Angeles.[6]

As well as releasing tracks through Subliminal, Data Records, Cr2 and Refune, and producing for Interscope Records, Angello is owner and founder of Size Records based in Stockholm, Sweden established in 2003.[8] Through Size he has released singles such as Gypsy, Isabel and Flonko to name a few. Size also represents artists such as Tim Mason, Funkagenda, Max Vangeli, Third Party, Qulinez, Wayne & Woods, Tiësto, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Don Diablo, Kris Menace, Kim Fai, Veerus, Thomas Gold, AN21, Avicii, Marcus Schossow, Boris Rush and Maxie Devine.

During 2012, it was noted that:

The Size Records family have had an exceptional summer. Spearheaded by Steve Angello, the roster have joined forces to play some of their biggest shows yet from Ushuaia in Ibiza to Central Park, NY.[9]

In that year also, Angello launched a new venture – Size TV, in which Angello "is allowing cameras to capture his personal life as well as the extended Size Records family. The monthly video series will document everything from the creative process that goes into developing dance floor hits to what its like to get word from Steve that you are signing a track to Size."[10]

In March 2013 the label began a new project, an alliance with Brobot, said by Billboard magazine to be "the latest label from prolific dance veteran Junior Sanchez."[11]

Also in March 2013, Steve Angello launched X, being regarded as Size's sister label. The new label X is more focused on tech house than Size. The first release on X was an EP by Trent Cantrelle called Nice and Close.[12]

In August 2013 Size Records observed its tenth anniversary with "SLVR" (pronounced "Silver"), a collaboration with Russian production duo Matisse & Sadko. It was the 100th release on the Size label.[13]

In January 2014, the Size Records website and artwork had been redesigned. All album artwork now uses Trade Gothic Bold Extended, which was a choice made by Size's design team Rebels Studios, who have worked with Steve for years.

In March 2014, Size Records celebrated 10 years by giving away the first 100 releases for free via Google Play in the US, and through WeTransfer & Box internationally.[14]

In a summary video of the #DECADE event, Steve had said he is looking to expand the label into further genres, once it "becomes solid".[15] He has also recently announced he has hired a brand-new team, and has had talks with Scooter Braun. "Scooter is great. He’s very, very hungry. He’s one of the few guys in the music industry that really thinks outside the box. He thinks different…. and we think alike. He’s great and we’re doing some fun stuff together that I can’t really say now."

When asked about the future of Size records Steve had said "We’re at that point where we don’t care about the trophy, we just care about the fight. Our focus isn’t to make money, our focus is to be creative and have shit loads of fun." "I’m not done yet, I’ve just started. I haven’t even put in the second gear yet."[16]
