Alesso is one of the biggest DJs in the world.
That’s not understatement. The Swedish DJ and producer has worked with just about everyone – from Tove Lo to Ryan Tedder, Hailee Steinfeld to Calvin Harris and Usher to David Guetta. Whether they’re pop stars or superstar producers, they have Alesso’s name in their contact list
But, it hasn’t been an overnight success.
Having started playing the piano aged 7, he became interested in electronic dance music aged 16, releasing his first Alesso EP in 2010. That was just the spark though. In 2011, Sebastian Ingrosso of supergroup Swedish House Mafia contacted the young DJ to ask if they wanted to work together… and the rest is history.
He’s charted consistently since 2011 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll (peaking at #13 in 2015), has had hit singles with “Under Control” (with Calvin Harris), “Heroes (We Could Be)” and Florida Georgia Line/Hailee Steinfeld collaboration “Let Me Go”.
Now, he’s back with brand new single “Sad Song” featuring Argentinian actress, model, singer and songwriter TINI.
James Gilmore sat down with Alesso to talk all things “Sad Song” and more ahead of taking over W!ZARD Radio Station’s In The Mix radio show.
Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
