Often mistaken for Sebastian Ingrosso’s son, Alessandro Lindblad has been initiated into the big league on merits outside of his associations with his Swedish peers. But having made such affirmative surges forward for 2012, August sees Alesso’s most audacious solo production turned premature summer gem ‘Years’ receive a long overdue official release.
First premiered on Swedish House Mafia’s Essential Selection takeover back in Febuary, ‘Years’ extends the Swede’s versatile synth stylings and key driven chord progressions towards the vocal work of Interscope’s Matthew Koma. Bridging the gap between electronic pop and the festival proof Progressive House without compromising on production values, this uplifting single proves itself a solid mark of musical maturity from Alesso.
