Since landing in the Top 100 DJs poll back in 2011, Alesso has become one of EDM’s most recognisable names, standing shoulder to shoulder with other giants of the scene. Perhaps it’s not surprising. After all, he was named one of the EDM Rookies to Watch by MTV in 2012, and since then has scored hit after hit, including ‘Under Control’ with Calvin Harris and his stellar single ‘Let Me Go’.

Alesso hasn’t slowed a bit in the studio this year, releasing ‘In The Middle’ with SUMR CAMP this September, the monstrous ‘Sad Song’ featuring Tini back in July, and the three-track ‘Progresso Mixtape Volume 1’ back in May. Though Alesso’s fame is truly global — he recently sold 700,000 singles in Brazil, and was mobbed by fans at the mall during his recent trip to Korea for Ultra. When he’s not hobnobbing with his loyal followers, he can usually be seen commanding the decks at XS Las Vegas, and his 2019 Tomorrowland performance has already racked up over a million views on his YouTube channel — another testament to his incredible star power. He also recently launched his own clothing collection, fittingly dubbed Never Settle, proving Alesso is a man who truly never does.
