Early life

Angello was born to a Greek father and Swedish mother in Athens, Greece. Raised in Stockholm, Sweden, along with his brother Antoine Josefsson (who performs as AN21),[1] Angello began DJ-ing at 12 years of age.[2]

Angello started out as a turntablist, combining hip-hop, breakbeats and 1970s classics. By his late teens, he began listening to electronic music.[3]

Angello has produced under the alias Who's Who and released tracks called "Not So Dirty" and "Sexy F*ck".[4][5] He often works with Ingrosso on DJing, and they have also produced under the names Buy Now, Fireflies, General Moders, Mode Hookers, Outfunk, and The Sinners.[6]

As well as releasing tracks through Subliminal, Data Records, Cr2 and Refune, and producing for Interscope Records, Angello is owner and founder of Size Records based in Stockholm, Sweden established in 2003.[7] Through Size, he has released singles such as Gypsy, Isabel and Flonko.

2007-2009: Breakthrough singles and productions

Angello released his remix of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" in late 2004.[10] He subsequently released the singles "KNAS", "Rave n' Roll" and "Yeah" on Beatport.[11][12][13] He also accompanied his size edits for Junior Sanchez and Tim Mason, and had Robin S. track "Show Me Love" remixed.[14] He has produced his, AN21's, and Max Vangeli's remix for Pendulum's "The Island" and his own remix of Alex Metric's "Open Your Eyes", a track used in the video game FIFA 12 released in September 2011.[15][16][17]

He has produced with Eric Prydz under the name A&P Project.[18] Also, he has created a track with Axwell under the name Supermongo, later renamed Supermode.[19] They made a cover version of an old Bronski Beat track, calling it "Tell Me Why", which was released via Ministry of Sound's Data Records imprint in summer 2006.[20]

Angello is a member of Swedish House Mafia, which is composed of him, Ingrosso, and Axwell. Under "Swedish House Mafia", they have produced the commercially successful singles "Save the World", "Antidote", "Greyhound", "One", "Miami 2 Ibiza", and "Don't You Worry Child".[21] After the group's break-up in 2013, they officially reunited at Ultra Music Festival 2018 as the event's closing performance to celebrate the festival's 20th year.[22][23]

Angello's brother, Antoine Josefsson, is also a DJ and producer who goes by the name of AN21.[24] Together they have released the tracks "Valodja", "Flonko" & "Swing N Swoosh" and "GODS", along with Sebjak.[25][26] Angello often tours with his brother and with his brother's partner, American DJ and producer Max Vangeli.[27] Together, AN21 & Max Vangeli released the first non-compilation studio album in Size Records entitled People of the Night.[28]

Also in 2012, Angello launched Size TV, in which Angello allows camera to record his personal and working life.[29]

In March 2013 the label began distributing for Junior Sanchez' record label Brobot Records.[30]

Also in March 2013, Angello launched X, a sister label more focused on tech house. The first release on X was an EP by Trent Cantrelle called "Nice and Close".[31]

In August 2013 Size Records observed its tenth anniversary with "SLVR" (pronounced "Silver"), a collaboration with Russian production duo Matisse & Sadko. It was the 100th release on the Size label.[32]

In January 2014, the Size Records website and artwork were redesigned by Rebels Studios, with all album artwork using the Trade Gothic Bold Extended font.[33]

In March 2014, Size Records gave away the first 100 releases for free via Google Play in the US, and through WeTransfer & Box outside of the US.[34]

In 2014, Angello had said he is looking to expand the label into further genres, once it "becomes solid".[35][unreliable source?] He also said that he would be expanding Size Records, and was planning to release a new album, to be called Wild Youth.[36] Since then, Angello has released a track list and three songs for Wild Youth: "Remember", "Children Of The Wild" and "Wasted Love", along with ten other tracks including one entitled "....".[37] The album was initially scheduled for release on 20 November 2015,[38] but was delayed to 22 January 2016.[39][40]
