It's been just a couple weeks since Steve Angello and his Swedish House Mafia comrades tore through town during Winter Music Conference. But Miami just can't get enough of these guys' suave looks and big-room beats, and so Angello returns solo on Saturday, April 17 for one of his biggest gigs here to date, at Club Space.
Consider it a coronation for the head of possibly the biggest group, currently, in commercial dance music. Though Angello and pals Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso all boast club roots, their slightly techy, slightly electro-inflected, slightly progressive take on house has coincided perfectly with the clubbing zeitgeist. To wit: In Miami, this year, the trio played its first-ever headlining slot on the main stage of Ultra Music Festival.
Angello particularly seems poised for crossover stardom; in March he told New Times
he had been working in L.A. on productions for an as-yet-unrevealed pop artist. While the era of the superstar DJ seemed over, Angello may be proving that wrong. Catch him on the Space terrace before he's engulfed by an even bigger wave of hype.
Steve Angello. With AN21, Louis Puig, and PAtrick M. 11 p.m. Saturday, April 17. Club Space, 34 NE 11th St., Miami. Tickets cost $25 for entry before midnight, $40 for entry before 2 a.m. in advance from wantickets.com. Age 21 and up; 305-375-0001; clubspace.com
