Swedish House Mafia have called it quits, but the trio can't be bothered with down time. The group's Steve Angello is back at it with "SLVR," teaming with Russian duo Matisse and Sadko for a towering house track. "SLVR" marks important milestones for Angello's Size Records: it's the label's 100th release, and it celebrates Size Record's 10th anniversary. As such, the titanic synth trusts and jackhammer drum tracks provide an appropriate sensory overload for a massive birthday bash.

"SLVR" will be out August 12th. Angello will play New York's Central Park on September 27th and 28th as part of SIZE in the Park; for more information, visit the event's website.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
