Despite a triumphant reunion at Ultra earlier this year, Swedish House Mafia’s longtime manager Amy Thomson recently announced her decision to split from the megagroup. Thomson has driven the group’s success for the last 14 years, and came back on board after Swedish House Mafia’s five-year hiatus. Thankfully, the split is amicable – it appears that Thomson was simply ready to move on to new career-building projects.
This isn’t the first time Thomson has made a clean split from the group, either. In 2015, she split from Axwell & Ingrosso, who had continued performing as a duo after the full group disbanded. This time, we suspect that she’s off to start new ventures as a music business guru. This past June, Thomson launched the Mind Your Own Business course, a five-day music business intensive geared towards the industry’s fresh faces. The tuition is donated to a variety of mental health charities, making the work shop a rather timely pursuit.
As of yet, it is impossible to tell exactly what will happen with either the group or Thomson’s future. There appear to be no official release statements yet on Swedish House Mafia’s end, and Thomson’s vague Instagram post, with its references to some yet unknown fulfillment, can only leave us guessing. View Thomson’s full statement below.
