ALESSO

Swedish DJ and dance music producer Alessandro Lindblad, more commonly known as Alesso, quickly gained mainstream recognition for his remixes of Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia and Avicii, as well as his own productions. 

His first major achievement came in 2011, when his remix of Nadia Ali’s track “Pressure” was one of the most successful EDM tracks of the year. He made his first BBC Radio 1 essential mix in 2012 and earned the Track of the Year award on Zane Lowe’s prime-time Radio 1 slot for the single “Calling (Lose My Mind).” He also managed to move up many notches in DJ Mag’s DJ of the Year listings to number 20. He leaped to major success when he had a U.K. chart number one with his collaborative single “Under Control” alongside Calvin Harris and Hurts.

In 2014, Alesso signed a deal with Def Jam Recordings, and in 2015 he issued his debut album, “Forever,” which included the singles “Tear the Roof Up,” “Cool,” and “Heroes (We Could Be),” the latter of which featured Swedish pop star Tove Lo. In 2017, he scored a modest hit on the all-star collaboration “Let Me Go,” which featured Hailee Steinfeld, Andrew Watt and Florida Georgia Line. The track hit the Top 40 across the globe, rising to No. 6 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic chart.
