Having enjoyed an outstanding year, Alesso certainly isn’t resting on his laurels as it starts to draw to a close. Following the release of huge vocal anthems ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’ with Sebastian Ingrosso and Ryan Tedder and ‘Years’ featuring Matthew Koma, the young Swede is going solo and honing his focus directly on the club with blazing new single ‘Clash’.
Having been officially unveiled by Otto Knows on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio1 show as part of the Young Stars of 2012 takeover, ‘Clash’ is set for release on Refune Records imminently. Moving into darker than his most recent offerings, ‘Clash’ sees him returning to the heavier nature of earlier productions while continuing to push his sound into new territory. Retaining the melodic finesse and anthemic power that he is known for, big riffs and a grinding bassline drive the track forward. Living up to its title, ‘Clash’ is a dynamic call to arms for club goers.
At just 21 years old, Alesso has quickly established himself as one of the most fresh and exciting talents of the EDM world, and with a flourishing back catalogue of club and chart hits already to his name and a reputation as a DJ that precedes him, this is clearly only the start for the supremely talented young DJ and producer. Following the success of breakthrough singles such as ‘Nillionaire’, ‘Raise Your Head’ and ‘Calling’, Alesso went straight into DJ Mag’s Top 100 in his first year running as well as being tipped by MTV as one of their EDM artists to watch for 2012. Since the turn of the year things haven’t slowed down either, recording an essential mix in March, hitting the top of the Beatport and DMC Buzz Charts and travelling across the world to play to 1000s of fans from Masquerade Motel in Miami to Coachella, EDC to Tomorrowland and Milton Keynes Bowl, where he supported Swedish House Mafia. The release of his latest single ‘Years’ this Summer firmly cemented his position at the forefront of electronic music as we step in to the new year.
