Released 12 Years Ago: Michael Calfan – Resurrection (Axwell Mix)

In a dazzling return to the scene on November 21, 2011, Axtone Records unveiled ‘Resurrection’ by Michael Calfan in the powerful Axwell mix. After a hiatus, Axtone‘s comeback was nothing short of spectacular, with the track making its mark during the Swedish House Mafia takeover on Radio 1.

Axwell, a Grammy-nominated maestro and Swedish House Mafia luminary, debuted ‘Resurrection’ on Pete Tong‘s iconic Friday Night show. The track swiftly became a standout in Axwell‘s and his compatriots’ set, generating buzz and anticipation in the online community. Over a decade later, ‘Resurrection’ remains a timeless favorite, amassing over 20 million online streams and earning its place as one of the most-played tracks by both artists.

Axwell‘s illustrious career includes five Grammy nominations and a distinctive sound that has shaped the electronic dance music landscape. As a solo artist and part of Swedish House Mafia, he conquered festivals, achieving platinum certifications for albums like ‘Until One’ and ‘Until Now’. His solo hits, including the 2012 remix of ‘In My Mind’, showcase his enduring influence.

French DJ Michael Calfan burst onto the scene in 2008, blending Daft Punk and Modjo influences into his early electro-house tracks. With ‘Resurrection’, he embraced EDM buildups, aligning his style with the anthemic sound of Swedish House Mafia. Calfan‘s evolution continued, introducing soulful R&B and gospel samples in later releases, creating a vibe that uplifts spirits while keeping the dancefloor alive. ‘Resurrection’ stands as a testament to the collaborative brilliance of Axwell and Michael Calfan, capturing a decade of electronic music excellence.
