Without a doubt, one of the biggest anthems to be released in the year of 2014 was Steve Angello’s huge collaboration with duo Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman. The word iconic is discussed a lot within the modern dance music industry, however, one track that has certainly become an iconic progressive house release in its own right is ‘Payback’. Gaining over 50 million online streams since its release on the 22nd of April, 2014, ‘Payback’ has destroyed festivals across the world with its melody being one of dance music fans’ all-time favorites.
The word legend is tossed around a lot, but casually dressed and exceedingly loyal to his vocation, Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello has earned his “legend” label. Releasing and producing multiple hits under several different projects and alias’, Steve Angello receives upwards of 5 million monthly streams and with a huge discography dating back to 2003, it’s no surprise.
Swedish DJ/producer duo Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman have been stalwarts of the progressive music scene, contributing a number of globally-received hits such as ‘Payback’ (with Steve Angello), ‘Changes’ (with Mike Perry and Ten Times), and ‘The King’ (with Dzeko) over the past 10 years and counting. With a loyal monthly Spotify listener count of over 1.4M, the duo have yet to show any signs of fading.
