Rising Star Alesso

It’s happening, Alesso is outdoing himself.  Billboard reports to us that Def Jam / EMI UK has signed the 23 year old Swedish DJ-producer for a recording contract.  Earlier in the year Alesso’s Grammy- nominated remix of One Republic’s If I Lose Myself really placed him on the grid, but that isn’t the only collaboration that earned him recognition.  In the lead up, he has played with Swedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris and Hurts along with a number of other high profile producers.  To top it off, his remix of Nadia Ali, Starkillers and Alex Kenji’s Pressure frequented our stereos as one of EDM’s most played songs in 2011.  The progressive house virtuoso recently stated he ‘wanted to make a massive song that would literally make people want to tear off the roof’.  So in conjunction with this, here debuts Tear The Roof Up!
