Firstly: Ingrosso has not released his solo album during 2010. Why? Because the DJ family of which he makes up one third - Swedish House Mafia - had an obscenely successful year, which led to the trio cavorting around the globe on numerous DJ missions and returning to Pacha Ibiza every Monday for their Masquerade Motel nights (offering the classy-but-debauched house party vibe, which seemed to go down very well indeed with punters). Thus, we'll forgive Ingrosso for not getting around to the solo record he began sketching out last year. But that's not to say his career outside of SHM has been kept under wraps. 2010 has seen the continuation of Ingrosso's collaborative remix series with Dirty South, including the pair's stomping twitch-house rework of alt-pop act Miike Snow's 'Silvia', receiving considerable club airtime throughout the year. Live sets have, of course, also been a staple of Ingrosso's year. Performances at Miami WMC, Creamfields and Australia's Stereosonic - to name a few of many - have kept the Swede busy, as have the ramifications of SHM's mammoth track 'One', the aftermath of which has been captured in their final 2010 project, 'Take One' - a documentary of the trio's past year, filmed at a time when the world and his wife wanted a piece of them. Guaranteed entertaining viewing, and sure to set up Ingrosso and co. for a similarly spectacular 2011
