Tomorrowland One World Radio Made in Sweden
As part of the Made in Sweden week, Tomorrowland’s One World Radio has been taking listeners on a magical journey through the best music in Swedish Dance history every day for the past week. Today featured the countdown and grand finale of The Made in Sweden Top 100, after the People of Tomorrow massively voted for their favorite tracks and One World Radio compiled everything into the brand-new chart with the most iconic Swedish dance artists and tracks, featuring Adam Beyer, Alesso, Avicii, Dada Life, Eric Prydz, Galantis, Ida Engberg, Otto Knows, Salvatore Ganacci, Swedish House Mafia, and many more.
Swedish House Mafia’s timeless classic ‘Don’t You Worry Child‘ has been voted the absolute number one by music fans all over the world. The late Avicii takes 2nd place with his anthem ‘Levels’, while Sebastian Ingrosso, Tommy Trash, and John Martin finish 3rd with their track ‘Reload’.
1. The Swedish heritage
Did you know that Swedish House Mafia‘s number one single ‘Don’t You Worry Child‘ features another Swedish artist? John Martin, a Swedish singer, provides the vocals. The iconic Swedish House Mafia has eight tracks in the chart, with each of its members contributing significantly. With 21 tracks, Axwell was first, followed by Sebastian Ingrosso (19 tracks), and Steve Angello (18 tracks).
2. Never forgotten
Avicii‘s 2011 track ‘Levels‘ (#2) features vocal samples from Etta James’ single ‘Something’s Got a Hold on Me.’ Avicii’s track is almost 5 decades older than the 1962 song. The late Swedish DJ appears 16 times in this chart with ‘Levels’ and many other tracks, three of which are in the top ten.
3. Based on true facts
Avicii, Aloe Blacc, and Mike Einziger collaborated on ‘Wake Me Up‘ (#8), but according to Blacc, it all started with Avicii being inspired by his own life. On the road, Avicii used to think and say how amazing his accomplishments were, and that the life he was living was too good to be true. “Such a dream”, he kept saying and someone should wake him up “when it’s all over”.
4. Take me back to the year 2012.
2012 was a landmark year for electronic music, with a number of tracks from the Made in Sweden Top 100 making history. Otto Knows is part of this legacy, staying in the top 10 with ‘Million Voices’ (#9).
Salvatore Ganacci‘s song ‘Horse‘ (#99) made the Made in Sweden Top 100, but have you ever seen him perform at Tomorrowland? He was the first performer to begin his set in the middle of the audience! The Swedish DJ was among the audience in 2019 as he was announced on the Mainstage. Before the show began, he was dancing like everyone else and making jokes!
