Superstar DJ: Alesso’s Magic

If you looked up ‘Superstar DJ’ in an encyclopedia, you wouldn’t need a definition. All you’d need is a picture of Alesso. He has taken the world by storm.

Born in Sweden, Alesso (Alessandro Lindblad to his mum), is a bit of a prodigy. He released his first EP when he was 18 and, since then, he’s kept climbing the ladder towards world domination. In 2015, he was named Global DJ of the Year by Mixmag. His hits have soared to the top of the charts, and have racked up hundreds of millions of views on YouTube alone. He’s sold out every single gig he’s ever performed in the USA (and there’ve been a few) and his last performance in London - at the famous Brixton Academy – sold out in nine minutes. 

His tracks aren’t just for the dance floor. Alesso’s been tearing up the charts all over the world. ‘Cool’ and ‘I Wanna Know’ have been downloaded by the hundreds of thousands, and have taken over radio playlists. He’s also teamed with some of the biggest names in music, including fellow track-spinner Calvin Harris, when they created the monster hit ‘Under Control’. And even if you’ve been living under a rock at the bottom of the sea, you won’t fail to have heard his track, ‘Heroes’, which featured the vocals of fellow sensational Swede Tove Lo, and was the song of 2014. 

We’re really proud to have sponsored his latest single, ‘I Wanna Know’, and to feature in the behind-the-scenes footage where you can find out more about the incredible stunts that happen in the music video.  

Alesso’s living his dream, but how’s he done it? What inspires him? What’s his magic? Join us as we discover what drives him, and what fires the creativity of someone who’s reached for his dreams and grabbed them? Watch the video and discover what pushes Alesso to keep going further and aiming higher  . 

Alesso’s magic is something really, really special. And we’re excited that he’s chosen to share it with us.
