Award Winner Announcement – Steve Angello
2013 Eliason Merit Award Winner – Steve Angello
We are beyond excited to announce that the Swedish House Music icon Steve Angello will receive the Eliason Merit Award 2013. The winner came out of an unanimous decision by the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles’ Board of Directors. Steve Angello receives the award for his persistent musical innovation that has put Sweden in the international spotlight and helped strengthen the relations between The United States and Sweden.
”To receive a price like this is a great honor,” says Steve Angello and continues, “When I heard that I was given a price for strengthening the Swedish-American relations it put a smile on my face. I have never gone in to any of these adventures for being awarded, it’s truly passion! When something like this happens you feel powered to go further and work harder and therefore it means a great deal to me and the people on this journey supporting my cause and adventure! Thank you so much for the blessing and boost of power!”
The red carpet event will take place at the W Hollywood Hotel’s famous rooftop with unparalleled views of Los Angeles. The award ceremony will feature top performances, including a celebrity-packed after party in Steve Angello’s honor. More details regarding the evening and the entertainment will be announced soon so stay tuned.

The Deer Tracks‘s songs often stride fearlessly into the forest primeval armed with a stuttering beat and a rattling arsenal of percussion. Somehow they blend them all together with other natural found sounds and deliberately lo-fi digital artefacts that add bristles and grit to their relentless melodies.
The music by Like Swimming is made out of acoustic indie pop with an electronic touch, always with the sweetest melodies and rhythms and with a slice of Swedish accent on every word.
Frida Sundemo is creating undefinable pearls of pop. Easy to receive, hard to forget, wrapped with love.

Paul McCartney and Justin Timberlake live on Hollywood Boulevard
With an office in Hollywood/West Hollywood we are located in the center of the entertainment capital of the world. Some days that is more obvious than ever. For example last Monday and Tuesday when a block of Hollywood Boulevard was shut down because of the free summer concerts featuring Paul McCartney and Justin Timberlake. Anyone who did not register for the free tickets in time could still line the sidewalks to hear the performances.
September 23rd. Watch Paul McCartney’s live set on Hollywood Boulevard as part of the Jimmy Kimmel Live concert series.
September 24th. Watch Justin Timberlake’s live set on Hollywood Boulevard as part of the Jimmy Kimmel Live concert series.
