Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s collaboration for “Calling” helped continue a precedent of major commercial crossovers with the dance music scene. Enthralling festival goer’s and radio listener’s around the globe before it became the vocal version most know and love today, it was a mighty instrumental in its own right.
Going on to distinctive career highlights, the duo, have carved their names into generations of dance music fans nostalgia. From Swedish House Mafia to the now dominant Axwell Λ Ingrosso combination, Sebastian also has several business endeavours reaping reward.
Alesso on the other hand has come from rising talent to established taste-maker. Recently closing the Tomorrowland Main Stage, he has matured as an artist and person. Experimenting with great success with his material since “Calling” it will be fascinating to see what else he offers in the future.
Sourcing from Ingrosso’s mentoring days of Alesso as a prodigy, the dual melody building up proved a major hit with fans and listeners from within the scene. Releasing five years ago today, the track was a near six-minute journey of pulsing under lays, stomping beats and euphoric chords. Releasing on Ingrosso’s very own imprint, it still stands as one of the finest in the labels portfolio.
