This weekend on BBC Radio 1 with Annie Mac, listeners were treated to new music from Axwell alongside information about the future of Swedish House Mafia

On Mac's signature dance music broadcast, the new tune by Axwell (real name Axel Christofer Hedfors) became the latest song to hold the title of "Hottest Record in the World" as a part of Mac and BBC Radio 1's long-running new music spotlight.

Titled "Nobody Else," the latest from one third of the Swedish EDM behemoth is a nod to the music that helped Axwell become who he is today. He described its combination of classic house music sound and vocals as reminiscent of the "good old times," making "Nobody Else" a throwback tune longtime fans of Axwell will adore.
