It’s a rare feat for a musician to become so popular that the biggest obstacle to their art is the size of their own success. It’s even rarer for the ones who get that big to take a plunge and sacrifice the formula that’s brought them so far for the sake of pursuing a vision that means more to them than sales numbers and chart positions. David Bowie, Radiohead, Trent Reznor, and Kanye West have all done it. Now with his debut solo album Wild Youth, producer Steve Angello has joined their ranks.

Angello is one of the most successful electronic musicians in history, a platinum-selling artist at a time where those have become an endangered species and a live performer who routinely plays for crowds the size of a small city.

He began releasing music alongside his childhood friend Sebastian Ingrosso in 2001, had his first breakthrough hit as a solo artist with his electro-tinged 2005 remix of the Eurythmics’s “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” and broke the UK Top 10 with “Tell Me Why,” his 2006 collaboration with fellow DJ/producer Axwell released under the name Supermode.
