Then there are the millions of fans who flock to Alesso’s sold-out shows around the globe, and stay up-to-date with his string of hugely popular remixes.

Alesso was still in his teens when he was first mentored by Ingrosso, who signed him to his management company andrecord label. Alesso entered the scene with the ‘Taking It Back’ remix of Avicii’s ‘Alcoholic’, but it was his addition of a classic house drop to Nadia Ali’s ‘Pressure’ that turned the single into one of the most played dance tracks of 2011. Subsequentremixes for SHM and Devolution earned Alesso the ‘EDM Artist To Watch’ title from MTV.

2012 was Alesso’s breakout year, as he teamed up with Ingrosso and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder for ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’, which went to #1 on the Billboard Dance chart and has since been streamed over 33.5 million times on Spotify. Alessoopened for Madonna on her MDMA tour, and released a volley of commercially and critically celebrated remixes including David Guetta’s ‘Titanium’, Keane’s ‘Silenced By The Night’, and One Republic’s summer anthem, ‘If I Lose Myself’. It hit #1 Dance in Billboard, earned a Grammy Award® nomination for Best Remixed Recording, and has over 40 million streams on Spotify to date.

Alesso went on to play for sold-out crowds all over the world, landed a Las Vegas residency, and became a festival favourite at South West Four, Creamfields, Coachella, Electric Daisy and Ultra. During his first headline tour in 2013, he released ‘Under Control’ with Calvin Harris and Theo Hurts, which topped the Hypemachine charts, was named Pete Tong’s ‘Essential New Tune’ and hit 1millionYouTube views in just 24 hours. He ended the year by producing Example’s ‘Queen Of Your Dreams’ and, alongside Swedish House Mafia, ‘Numb’ for R&B megastar Usher. Alesso’s Uprising tour, which began November 2013, saw him play to sold out shows across North America, Australia, Asia and the UK.

‘Heroes’ has been described by Alesso as “about believing in yourself and going for your goals. The song gives me the feeling that something might be over, but it’s ok, we’re still here together after it. This might be the last time we’ll be in that moment, but we can create new ones afterwards”. Alesso’s goal, he insists, “is to bring a message; I want to uplift people though music, I want to inject emotion into dance music. I want people to scream, jump, feel happiness. Explosive happiness.The best thing about music is it has no rules; I love the idea of breaking the rules”.
