Tag Archive: Alesso


The relentless energy of Dutch house’s leading figure of the new wave of DJ’s currently emerging continues to luxuriate as he ups the stakes for a brand-new remix treatment on Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s progressive Calling anthem. Being a producer behind such ravishing club bangers as Prutataaa, Sending My Love and a row of remix cuts out of  Without  You and Maximal Crazy to name a few, R3hab has indisputably become a man worthy of upholding the crown of the next pioneer, of Holland’s club music scene, to be. His uniquely knitted hit productions are of as high of a standard to be compared with the productions of any top-tier icon and has established himself as a hard-working and massively talented producer at the very heart of clubland. The forte of R3hab being his cacophonic sounding chords, thick underlayers and monstrous sounds, the essential aspirant of the next generation of Dutch house lays his hands on one of 2011’s most renowned singles – Calling. Despite the fact that the original’s progression is rather hard to remix, the producer from Holland’s holy Grail of successful DJ’s – Breda – has made it clear there is no stopping his steady crusade this year as he teams up with Swanky Tunes, the Russian trio primarily known by Their Law, Together, Phantom and the Smolengrad / United EP, yet again to now turn the hottest offering from Refune Records to date into a full-on, rugged peak-timer to enact their signature sounds further.

Following the stupendous success that has been brought upon Alesso from the emittance of his Nillionaire / Dynamite EP in March of this year, it does certainly seem our essential export out from Sweden capital is in it for the long run as a second solo release on Refune Records is currently in the works. As the aforementioned two-track package, merely half a year later, is still a distinct piece in live sets and radio shows, the ascension of Alesso has indeed been an honourable break-through to witness thrive over the past couple of months. Pulling out the exceling take on Pressure, the bone-thrilling and utmostly discerning remix on Save The World and the throbbing cut on LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem whilst still riding the remnants of his Refune EP, the projection of his burst into clubland has recurringly been proven correct over the past month. Teaming up with one of the Swedish mobsters, Sebastian Ingrosso, for the Pete Tong-championed Calling collaboration, the two of Italian heritage have come to create what appears to be of one of 2011’s grandest hit singles. And if not, the incredible remix of DEVolution and Amy Pearson’s Good Love may very well be the rightful contestant for this graceful distinction.

Together with the talkative acappella of Daft Punk’s Technologic, the next single out from Alesso is already played by the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, Avicii and Dirty South. Also featured in the Swedish House Mafia take-over on BBC Radio 1, the single making, entitled Raise Your Head, that is rendered by a rugged core lead in conjuction with vigorous baselines and cacophonic sounding break-down chords is showcasing a powerful structure that sure knows how to demolish and evoke a mayhem on any dancefloor. It’s due out soon and from the looks of previous proceedings, I believe we can expect a companion to be joining the release that is coming on the record label of Sebastian Ingrosso – Refune.

DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll has become an influential ratification of the hottest DJ’s out over the past few years and is now announcing the results for the second year in a row with the poll being fully based on a public vote. In conjunction with Trackitdown, a widely known digital market for electronic dance music, an annual buzz as to whom is becoming the best new entry, taking the largest climb upwards and whom is elected the winner begins in post-summer to run through to the prestigious Amsterdam Dance Event – the week-long festival which is becoming more significant to the EDM industry by the day.

In terms of confusion concerning the results; many have come to judge and rate the world’s DJ’s along with their placings on the poll which, in truth, has come to be based principally on the CD-spinner’s performances on the charts and as producers instead of what it ultimately was intended to rate – mixing and general DJ skills. Although skillful discjockey’s like James Zabiela may not place themselves and their outstanding knowledge on everything mixing and transitions at the forefront, one should keep in mind the top 100 results are only approximations as to who are the most renowned names in modern-day clubland, despite the fact that an appearance on the poll is indeed a prestigious award to any DJ and/or producer.

In an epoch where DJ’s are like the modern-day rockstars and attract thousands and thousands of raving club-goers to, if not such festivals as Ultra in Miami, Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy, Electric Zoo and Sensation, weekly events in nearby clubs and venues across the globe, this poll is now a solid and utmostly intriguing statement as to whom has had a successful year and who has not. Be sure to scim through the listed results after the break and compare them to the results of 2010.

Congratulations to David Guetta for taking over pole position after a 4 year supremacy of Armin van Buuren, to Avicii, Afrojack and Swedish House Mafia for fighting themselves into the top 10, to Skrillex for the best new entry, to Calvin Harris for the biggest climb and a big congratulations to talents like Hardwell, Alesso, AN21 and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike for finally breaking themselves into the DJ Mag top 100 poll.

Preview: Jasper Forks – River flows in you (Alesso Remix)

Another day, another Alesso remix, this guy never stops. This truly is Alesso’s year. After coming out with Calling which is undoubtedly one of the biggest releases of the summer, he drops another huge remix.This time the swedish producer takes on a more sombre approach, with this melange of chilling piano riff as well as a powerful and striking violin lead, this track will become an instant hit. Please for your ears’ sake hit the play button. You will not be disappointed.

Following the stupendous success that has been brought upon Alesso from the emittance of his Nillionaire / Dynamite EP in March of this year, it does certainly seem our essential export out from Sweden capital is in it for the long run as a second solo release on Refune Records is currently in the works. As the aforementioned two-track package, merely half a year later, is still a distinct piece in live sets and radio shows, the ascension of Alesso has indeed been an honourable break-through to witness over the past couple of months. Pulling out the exceling take on Pressure, the bone-thrilling and utmostly discerning remix on Save The World and bumpily throbbing cut on LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem whilst still riding the remnants of his Refune EP, the projection of his burst into clubland has recurringly been proven correct over the past month. Teaming up with one of the Swedish mobsters, Sebastian Ingrosso, for the Pete Tong-championed Calling collaboration, the two of Italian heritage have come to create what appears to be of one of 2011’s grandest hit singles. And if not, then the incredible remix of DEVolution and Amy Pearson’s Good Love may very well be the rightful contestant for this graceful distinction.

Together with the talkative acappella of Daft Punk’s Technologic, the next single out from Alesso is already played by the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, Avicii and Dirty South. Also featured in the Swedish House Mafia take-over on BBC Radio 1, the single making, entitled Raise Your Head, that is rendered by a rugged core lead in conjuction with vigorous baselines and cacophonic sounding break-down chords is showcasing a powerful structure that sure knows to demolish and evoke a mayhem on any dancefloor. It’s due out soon and from the looks of it, I believe we can expect a companion to be joining the release that is coming on the record label of Sebastian Ingrosso – Refune.

Here’s the awesome new song from Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso called “Calling” that actualy might be the most anticipated song of the year.  With a super catchy melody, this track is bound to be huge.  If you still aren’t convinced that Alesso is the next big thing on the scene, then I dont know what else to tell you.  Let the music do the talking…check it out below.  Enjoy
