Released 10 Years Ago: Michael Calfan – Resurrection (Axwell Mix)

After a release break over the 2011 European Summer, Axtone returned in amazing fashion with a special track in the form of ‘Resurrection’ by Michael Calfan. Originally debuted by Axwell on Radio 1 as part of the Swedish House Mafia takeover on Pete Tong‘s legendary Friday Night show, ‘Resurrection’ quickly became a stand out track in both his & his fellow mafioso’s sets with the online community clamoring for news of its release. To this day, ‘Resurrection’ has been one of the most played tracks from both artists and it still receives airtime and has gained over 20 million online streams since it’s release on the 21st of November 2011.

With five Grammy nominations and a bright, distinctive sound, electronic dance musician Axwell is an award-winning DJ/producer and member of the progressive house supergroup Swedish House Mafia. With the latter, he conquered festivals throughout the early 2010s, scoring two platinum certifications with their albums ‘Until One’ and ‘Until Now’. As a solo artist, he churned out consistent singles, most notably 2008’s ‘What a Wonderful World’, 2012’s remix of ‘In My Mind’, and 2018’s ‘Belong’.

French DJ Michael Calfan emerged in Paris in 2008, spinning hard-hitting electro-house influenced by Daft Punk and Modjo. His first tracks, such as ‘Twisted Bitch’ and ‘The Bomb’, were aggressive party-starters. In 2011, he employed more EDM buildups on songs like ‘Black Rave’ and ‘Resurrection’, creating a vibe similar to Swedish House Mafia. By 2014, he started to incorporate soulful R&B and gospel samples, much like Avicii and Moby before him. On a steady series of singles that began with ‘Prelude’, Calfan aimed to uplift the spirits of his audience while still inspiring them to move.
