Even before Axwell reached 10 years of age, he had taught himself how to play the drums, then in his teens he focused more on computer produced music, and started making complete tracks before he hit 15. His next move was the release of the techno/hard trance EP entitled “OXL” in 1995, recording tracking music with FastTracker 2 and Noise Tracker, and starting to use the stage name Quazzar.
Nevertheless, his name was barely known until the mid- 2000s, when he emerged on the scene under the name Axwell with the song “Feel the Vibe” (2004), which next year was re-recorded with Tara McDonald on vocals. Released through Ministry of Sound, it became an immediate hit, reaching No. 1 on the UK Dance Singles Chart and No. 16 on the UK Singles Chart. This launched Axwell into the house and techno music scene, and significantly contributed to his net worth.
Before his breakthrough in his own right, he collaborated with several artists, including Isabel Fructuoso, Jetlag, Room 5, Usher and many others, which helped him to establish his net worth, and his popularity.
He continued successfully into the second half of the ‘00s, collaborating with Steve Angello in 2006, and the same year he worked with Eric Prydz. The following year he created the song “I Found U” with Max’C, while also teaming-up with Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angelo to form Swedish House Mafia, after the trio performed together on tour; their first single together was “Get Dumb”, released that year. After the initial success they continued to work together, and in 2009 released another single “Leave the World Behind”. In 2010 Swedish House Mafia signed with Polydor Records, and during its existence released two compilation albums – “Until One” (2010), which achieved platinum status in Sweden and Gold in Britain, which only increased Axwell’s net worth, and “Until Now” (2012), which was even more successful, reaching No. 3 on the Sweden charts and topping the UK Compilation chart.
Apart from albums, the trio had numerous successful singles, including “One (Your Name)” – which achieved multiple platinum status in Sweden – “Miami 2 Ibiza”, “Save the World”, and “Don’t You Worry Child”, which is their most successful hit, topping the charts in several countries and achieving multiple platinum status in the US, Britain, Australia and Sweden, which only further increased Axwell’s net worth. The trio dissolved in 2013.
During Swedish House Mafia existence, Axwell was also focused on other projects, including co-production of the song “Rain on Me”, performed by Cyndi Lauper, and a remix of Adele’s song “Hometown Glory”, both in 2008. Three years later, Axwell co-produced and co-wrote the single “Wild Ones”, performed by Flo Rida.
In 2013, he released the single “Center of the Universe”, and in 2014 he continued collaborating with Sebastian Ingrosso, as a duo named Axwell Λ Ingrosso, and so far they have released six singles.
Axwell is also the owner of the Axtone Records, which he used firstly to release his own material, and as he became more and more popular, he signed new artists to his label, which also contributes to his wealth.
