The rise of Swedish House Mafia over the last decade paved the way for many incredible artists to rise to the forefront, but their biggest export is undoubtedly fellow Swede Alesso. The man behind some of modern-day dance music’s most timeless hits, including tracks like ‘Years’, ‘Calling’ with Sebastian Ingrosso, ‘If I Lose Myself’ with One Republic, and remixes for Starkillers & Alex Kenji‘s ‘Pressure’ and David Guetta‘s ‘Titanium’, Alesso rose swiftly through the ranks as the frontliner for progressive house as we know it today.
With that being said, his drastic shift in production and musical styles following his debut studio album ‘Forever’ in 2015 led to many a disgruntled fan. Older fans wanted the progressive house Alesso back, as opposed to his more pop-driven singles such as ‘Falling’ and ‘Is That For Me’ with Anitta.
A cryptic post via Instagram stories may hint towards Alesso returning to his progressive roots however, and with recent events, such as his surprise tech-house set in Brooklyn earlier this year and the unexpected return of Swedish House Mafia last month, it may well be very likely.
@alesso: “The music I’m working on now is giving me so much goosebumps it reminds me why I started. Stay tuned for the best music I’ve ever made ❤”
What do you think this means? Only time will tell.
