Alesso: BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

By: Forward Musiq
Last week Pete Tong aired Alesso’s Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1. Jump after the break to download the mix and find out how this young Swede is slowly conquering the progressive-house scene.

A Radio 1 Essential mix is considered as one of EDM’s most prestigious platforms in which an up-and-coming DJ can showcase and expose his talents, which he has developed both in the studio and behind the decks. Meticulously chosen by Pete Tong, Essential Mixes have ignited the careers of many DJs worldwide, including talented acts such as Avicii, who premiered an ID version of Levels during his Essential Mix back in 2010, many months before the anthem’s official release.  Last week, it was Alesso’s turn to amaze worldwide crowds with his musical abilities. In less than 2 years, the young Swede has conquered the ears of thousands of progressive-house lovers thanks to hits such as Nillionaire, Calling, Raise Your Head, Pressure, and many more. In his essential mix, Alesso gives us a taste of a perfect blend between beautiful, synth-driven melodies and hard-hitting, monstrous basslines. He premieres his upcoming Vocal Mix of Years, a track which is labeled as ID3, and Eclipse, his yet-to-be-released collaboration with Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello. You can listen to the set below and download it here.
