Alesso premieres video for brand new single ‘Falling’

Grammy-nominated DJ, producer and songwriter Alesso has unveiled his high-concept video for latest single ‘Falling’. Shot in Los Angeles and directed by Henrik Hanson, the stylish video is an homage to 80s movies such as ‘9½ Weeks’ and stars Alesso himself as he controls the movements of a dancer, creating a partner for the lone female dancer.

Of the video, director Henrik Hanson says:
“I wanted to make video about something impossible, like two AI robots falling in love. Alesso discovers that something is amiss, so he creates a partner, the AI couple fall in love through their dance. I wanted their dance to feel passionate and sensual, and to send a beautiful message to the viewer that we should take care of each other. He takes care of her, and she takes care of him after a long and hot dance.”

The visuals of the video act as the perfect companion to single ‘Falling’. The track was dubbed “a showcase of his versatility & proficiency” by Dancing Astronaut upon its release, with Metro commenting that the track is “up there with some of his best”. The single has already seen an overwhelming reception online, with it currently at over 4 million streams on Spotify since its release.

Alesso has had 5 UK top ten singles to date, including the number one hit ‘Under Control’ (with Calvin Harris and Hurts). His debut album ‘Forever’ hit the UK top 30 and featured collaborations with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and Tove Lo. The huge hit ‘Heroes (We Could Be)’, amassed over 1.5 billion streams worldwide and helped launch Tove Lo into pop superstardom.

Alesso is currently on tour across the globe – he will headline Miami Ultra Music Festival in March, as well as EDC Mexico and Euphoria Texas – all alongside residencies at XS at The Encore and Wynn’s Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas. He also opened for Madonna on her MDNA tour, who invited him personally, referring to Alesso as “the next big thing in dance music”.

Refune Music presents new track ‘Rocking’ from Russian duo M.E.G. & N.E.R.A.K.

The latest release on Sebastian Ingrosso’s respected Refune Music comes courtesy of M.E.G. & N.E.R.A.K., a Russian duo who are quickly gaining themselves a rapidly expanding international fanbase. Bonding over their love of diverse styles of dance music to come together as an act in 2012, one of the duo’s most recent releases, ‘Concorde’, was premiered by Afrojack at Ultra Miami and quickly became one of the most-played tracks of the spring festival season. Picking up so much attention from the best in the business also led to them recently releasing a full EP on Axtone Records, ‘Everybody’.

The pair will be hoping to repeat the act with this new track – ‘Rocking’ is a stomping slice of electro, built for stadium-sized crowds; it’s already received plenty of support from Alesso. A robotic vocal, a driving bassline and dramatic synths come together in waves of climactic build-ups and earth shattering drops – the perfect formula for a festival smash.
