Mega talented artist and producer Axwell has teamed up with his protégé Shapov to release their brand new track Belong.  If you haven’t heard it already, then you’re gonna want to give it a listen in time for the weekend, especially if you’re headed to Creamfields.  Axwell will be there FYI.

We caught up with the pair who have put together a playlist you won’t be able to stop playing…

Axwell & Shapov – Belong

Axwell – My latest release on Axtone Records, I made this with Shapov and it’s been a favourite in live shows for a little while, so very happy we got to put it out there for all our fans. Turn it up!

Sebastian Ingrosso – Dark River

Axwell – This is a favourite for Seb and I to play live, and it’s a fusion of two sides of Seb’s music – raw club beats and sing-along vocals.

Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Axwell – The ultimate hit from the ultimate Diva!

The Pointer Sisters – I’m So Excited

Axwell – I have been playing a mash-up of this with ‘Lean On’ – impossible to dance to, but instant reactions every time.

Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 Burners – This Girl

Axwell – The summer’s biggest anthem and a mainstay this summer at Ushuaia!

Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers

Axwell – This hasn’t left my sets since it was 1st released – timeless

Seeb – Breathe ft. Neev

Axwell – This is a breakout hit from my fellow Scandinavians. I’ve been playing their Coldplay remix too

Daft Punk – One More Time

Shapov – One of my favourite tracks of all time from the legendary Daft Punk!

Shapov – Yet again Coldplay have delivered with their latest album: awesome as ever!

The Prodigy – Out Of Space 

Shapov – The Prodigy is the biggest influence on me musically and I could have picked almost any track from their catalogue!

Nirvana – Smells like Teen Spirit

Shapov – I always like to inject attitude and energy into my sets and this has that and more!

Florence + The Machine – Spectrum

Shapov – I think Florence has one of the best voices out there, would love to collaborate one day
