Sebastian Carmine Ingrosso (born 20 April 1983) is a Swedish DJ, actor and record producer. He is also a former member of the electronic music supergroup Swedish House Mafia, together with friends Axwell and Steve Angello.

Personal life

Born in Nacka, Ingrosso is of Italian, Tunisian, and Swedish descent and grew up in Stockholm, where he spent his teenage years in his choreographer father Vito Ingrosso's studio learning how to make music.[1]

Ingrosso has been married since 2011 to the singer and songwriter Kinnda and they have two daughters, Melina Ingrosso and Miranda Ingrosso.


1999-2007: Early Beginnings

Sebastian Ingrosso entered the music industry in 1999 releasing his first remix through Mega Records. Since then, he continued to release many remixs and singles. In 2003 Sebastian Ingrosso founded his own record label - Refune Music. In later years Ingrosso found himself collaborating mostly with fellow Swedish DJs Axwell, Steve Angello, and Eric Prydz - these four to be dubbed the Swedish House Mafia.

2008-2013: Swedish House Mafia and solo breakthrough

In late 2008, Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, and Axwell formed the Swedish House Mafia with Eric Prydz not joining, saying he is a control freak and cannot abide with collaborations even with close friends.[2] Around this time Swedish House Mafia released two songs, "Get Dumb" and "Leave the World Behind", however these weren't credited under the group name. Ingrosso himself collaborated with David Guetta on the songs "Everytime We Touch" and "How Soon is Now" for Guetta's albums Pop Life and One Love respectively. In 2009 Ingrosso made his debut on the DJ Mag top 100 DJs, charting at number 25, the highest new entry that year.[3] In 2010, he released his debut album with Swedish House Mafia named Until One. This followed the release of two success single "One (Your Name)" (featuring Pharrell Williams) and "Miami 2 Ibiza" (featuring Tinie Tempah). The album also contained solo work by Sebastian Ingrosso such as the songs "Kidos" and "Meich", plus his remix of "Silvia" by Miike Snow. In addition, Ingrosso made his Tomorrowland debut with Swedish House Mafia and achieved his peaked positions on the DJ Mag poll at number 10 while Swedish House Mafia debuted at number 23.[4]

In May 2011, Sebastian Ingrosso began work on their second album with Swedish House Mafia with the release of the single Save the World featuring vocals from Swedish singer John Martin. In the summer Swedish House Mafia again performed at Tomorrowland and released two more songs in the winter named "Antidote" and "Greyhound". In early 2012 Ingrosso released one of his most notable solo tracks with Swedish DJ Alesso (who at the time had recently signed to Ingrosso's record lable) and OneRepublic front man Ryan Tedder. The song named "Calling (Lose My Mind)" became a commercial success certifying 2× Platinum in Sweden.[5] In July, Swedish House Mafia performed at Tomorrowland for the third consecutive year, this time heading the event and opening Night 2. In September following a successful summer of live performances, Swedish House Mafia released their most commercially successful track "Don't You Worry Child", again featuring the vocal of John Martin which reach number 1 in Sweden, Australia, and the UK and was a multiplatinum song in many countries. The same month Sebastian Ingrosso released his collaboration with Tommy Trash entitled "Reload", this along with "Calling (Lose My Mind)" would feature on Swedish House Mafia's second studio/compilation album Until Now.

In November 2012, Swedish House Mafia kicked off their One Last Tour after it's announcement in June of that year. The supergroup stated that the final leg of this tour would be their last and the group would split up after its conclusion at Ultra Music Festival Miami 2013. Following the break up Ingrosso returned to his solo music and the song "Reload", adding in the vocals of favourite collaborator John Martin renaming the song to "Reload (Take My Hand)". This allowed the song to become a commercial success certifying in Sweden and the UK and becoming a chart hit in many countries. In July, Sebastian Ingrosso made his Tomorrowland debut as a solo artist, performing the main stage on Night 1.[6] Despite the break up of the Swedish House Mafia, Ingrosso collaborated with Axwell on "Roar" for the Monsters University Soundtrack in late 2013. In October, Ingrosso made a new peak on the DJ Mag top 100 DJs achieving number 18.[7]

2014-present: Axwell ? Ingrosso

Sebastian Ingrosso joined forces with Axwell, debuting their new collective at the 2014 Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City - their new group named Axwell ? Ingrosso,[8] this followed the release of their debut EP X4. One of the songs from this EP, "We Come, We Rave, We Love", was the final version of a song started by Swedish House Mafia and was played frequently during their One Last Tour. A single, "Something New" was released from the EP in November of that year.

In the early months of 2015 Ingrosso released his second and third single under the Axwell ? Ingrosso collaboration entitled "On My Way" and "Can't Hold Us Down" respectively. In June, the duo released their fourth single named "Sun Is Shining". This song became number 1 in Sweden and was Ingrosso's (and Axwell's) first number 1 since "Don't You Worry Child". In July the duo headlined Tomorrowland closing Night Two.[9]

In November 2015 "This Time" was released under Axwell ? Ingrosso and "Dream Bigger" on New Year's Eve. 2016 saw Sebastian Ingrosso's first releases as an individual since "Roar", releasing two songs, "FLAGS!" and "Dark River". The latter of the two would feature on Axwell ? Ingrosso's debut album More Than You Know. Under Axwell ? Ingrosso, new music saw vocals from Pharrell Williams added to "Dream Bigger" and the release of "Thinking About You". In February 2017 the duo released "I Love You" featuring Kid Ink.

In early May 2017, Ingrosso released the first single from his second EP with Axwell under their collective entitled "Renegade" with the EP and it's title song, "More Than You Know" being released in the latter parts of that month. The song was a commercial success, becoming a chart hit a gaining certifications in many countries. In July, Sebastian Ingrosso perform at Tomorrowland both as a solo artist (on the Refune stage) and under Axwell ? Ingrosso (on the main stage) who was a headliner for the event. On 8th December 2017, the duo's debut album, More Than You Know, was released. The album contained all of their previously released music and their new single "Dreamer".
