Axtone records explodes into 2012 with a record that’s already being billed by many as a contender for tune of year, big words so early in the year but who are we to argue?
A standout track in Axwell’s sets since the back end of 2011, the buzz on this release went supernova post the Swedish House Mafia’s historic event at Madison Square Garden where ‘In my Mind’ in many peoples eyes (and ears) stole the show as the biggest record of the night.
For the exclusive Beatport release 30th January, Axwell’s mix will take centre stage as the sole version on the package with the Original to be made available at a later date.

Axwell will be headlining and curating the musical talent for Cosmic Opera, a dance event series taking place at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom beginning February 24th. Like an opera, it will take place in "acts" in the form of three monthly, six-hour-long events that will integrate the high-tech 3D mapping techniques used by Skrillex and Deadmau5 on their tours. Baroque-era performers, along with dancers and acrobats, will be placed throughout the room to create a 360-degree spectacle that pays homage to the venue's history.
Axwell has been working on the events with Cosmic Opera creator Justin Cohen, former COO of entrepreneurial conference Summit Series. "It is a revolutionary time for dance music," he tells Rolling Stone. "To go with it, we needed to establish a new type of event." Axwell will be responsible for filling the musical bill at each of the three events. In a nod to Hammerstein's theater roots, Axwell will also play the role of conductor, not only manning the turntables but leading accompanying opera singers. Watch the trailer for the event below.
