Questions Top100 DJs 2004 - Becca Antoon - 2020-10-20 17:11

Best known for: 
Huge EDM hits.
Alessandro Renato Rodolfo Lindblad, better known as Alesso, is no stranger to the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll. The Swedish DJ and hit-maker hasn’t missed a spot since 2011 — an incredible run that shows just how much he understands exactly what brings a dancefloor together. And even if we haven’t seen a ’floor since early this year, Alesso has stayed busy, dropping the ‘Midnight Hour’ EP with Liam Payne this October, which included the smash single ‘Midnight,’ which has hit an impressive five million views on YouTube so far.  
 
But the EDM giant’s production prowess is near-universally known. Over the years he’s worked with legends like Calvin Harris, Usher, David Guetta and Sebastian Ingrosso, and headlined major events like Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Creamfields, and Tomorrowland. He’s even been memorialised in the popular video game Payday 2, when players rob a vault during an Alesso concert. Thankfully, events aren’t done everywhere, and you can catch Alesso at Ultra Taiwan on November 14th with SLANDER, Vini Vici and more.
