This performance, part of Swedish House Mafia's first visit to the West Coast, comes just before the release of the group's highly anticipated album that will feature the trio's first single, 'ONE.' Slated to debut July 12, 'ONE' has appeared in an unfinished format on Beatport and BBC Radio 1 and received rave reviews for its innovative and unique sound. The final version of 'ONE' will feature vocals from Grammy-Award-winning recording artist Pharrell, singer of The Neptunes and N*E*R*D.

Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello – each with their own celebrated independent record labels – created Swedish House Mafia as a way to merge their immense talents. Axwell's label Axtone is responsible for hit remixes for Madonna, Pharrell, Roger Sanchez and The Temper Trap, while Steve Angello's Size Records scored a global hit with 'Show Me Love' (with Laidback Luke) and has collaborated with N*E*R*D and Kid Sister. Sebastian Ingrosso's Refune Records is currently producing Kylie Minogue's new album, while his notorious bootleg mix of MGMT's 'Kids' was an underground sensation.

The dynamic beats found only at WET REPUBLIC will continue on Sunday, June 27 with performances by famed DJs Benny Benassi and Laidback Luke. It will be a weekend of great house music that partygoers will never forget.
