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 now out. As the aforementioned two-track package, merely half a year later, is still a couple of distinct pieces in live sets and radio shows, the ascension of Alesso has indeed been an admirable 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 onto 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 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 has already been played by the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, Avicii and Dirty South among countless others. Also featured in the Swedish House Mafia take-over on BBC Radio 1, the single making, entitled Raise Your Head, that consists of 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.
