A smash year is only going to get bigger for our friends in the globally acclaimed dance music masterminds Swedish House Mafia. “Take One,” a documentary film on the collective, will be released on DVD in late November. In the film, mega-DJs/producers Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell take viewers far beyond the frenzied night clubs (where they regularly wow thousands and thousands of loyal fans), behind the scenes and into the studios and minds of the guys Tiesto has called the rock stars of house music. This beautifully shot documentary takes die hard fans and newbies alike on a wild ride, jet-setting to major dance music hot spots like Miami and Ibiza as well as some more obscure (but still certainly beat-happy) corners of the Earth.
Director Christian Larson told MTV News that there will be plenty of goodies along the way. Not only has Larson tackled this documentary, but he has also turned out the clip for the SHM smash “One (Your Name)” (which featured a guest spot from Pharrell) and teamed up with renowned Swedish director Jonas Akerlund on Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s VMA-winning “Telephone” music video. “Take One” will be accompanied by their debut full length album Until One, which will hit shelves some time in October. Stay tuned to MTV News for more from Larson on what we can expect to see from the one of the hottest acts in house music. In the meantime, check out the tantalizing trailer, which proves that there’s no such thing as “typical” when you’re in one of the most in-demand dance collectives in the world.
