Axwell & Ingrosso have released a two-part short film directed by Christian Larson (videos for Sigur Rós, Kylie Minogue, and worked on Jay Z & Beyoncé‘s “On The Run” tour film), combining “On My Way” and “Can’t Hold Us Down” into one epic storyline. The music soundtracks the film as it follows Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso‘s characters in an intensive training routine for their big showdown at the local fight club. Tension builds as the duo convinces local mob bosses to bet on them, but the guys have a trick up their sleeves.
“We shot it in Romania in temperatures of over 100 degrees. We trained with a ninja for four days in Ibiza on how to fight without hurting each other but it didn’t really work… there was a lot of real pain!” – Axwell & Ingrosso
“I loved making this one – we had so much much fun on the shoot during a few hot summer days in Romania! It was cool that little phased the boys Axwell & Ingrosso. They really impressed us with their acting skills and they had tons of fun with their larger than life characters!” – Christian Larson, Director
With a string of hits under their belts, 15 million combined record sales and sold out world tours throughout their careers, Axwell & Ingrosso are ready to unleash their new project on the world. The duo is headlining Ultra Music Festival on Saturday, March 28th and a closing slot at Coachella on Saturday, April 11th and 18th, and have their debut album coming on Def Jam Recordings / Virgin EMI later this year.
