Celebrate Alesso’s birthday with 5 of his progressive classics

With Alesso‘s native Sweden facing off against England in the World Cup Quarter-Final, one thing that is certainly coming home for the Stockholm producer today is a wealth of gifts that mark his 27th birthday. Arriving into the world on 7th July 1991, Alesso has been responsible for many of the biggest progressive anthems of all time. Here, We Rave You pay tribute to the superstar with 5 of his most pivotal tracks:


Arriving on the scene in summer 2011, the young Swede instantly caught the eye – and ear – when he delivered this stunning remix for acclaimed vocalist Nadia Ali, with ‘Pressure’ since going on to achieve legendary status in the dance music world.


Labelled as a ‘big brother’ by Alesso himself, Swedish House Mafia star Sebastian Ingrosso has been integral in Alesso’s career, with the duo teaming up for the first time in this early 2012 track which was laced with the vocals of Ryan Tedder – A man Alesso would later work with once again…


By now, Alesso had cemented his reputation as one of dance music’s finest talents, and teamed up with Matthew Koma for this euphoric stadium smash. Blessed with rich melodic chord patterns, ‘Years‘ is still considered one of the Swede’s all-time finest exports.

If I Lose Myself

Pairing up with OneRepublic‘s frontman once again, Alesso’s unique rework of this 2013 anthem is considered the golden jewel in the crown of progressive house. Tilt you head back, close your eyes, and open your outstretched fingertips, there has never been an easier track to lose yourself in, than ‘If I Lose Myself.’

Under Control

With Alesso one of EDM’s most premiere names at this point, the Swede joined up with Las Vegas resident Calvin Harris in Autumn 2013 to create this monstrous radio hit, which was laced with the silky vocal delivery of Theo from Hurts. Happy Birthday Alesso!

Making the switch over from an established career in sports journalism to the world of dance music in 2016, Jake Gable has cemented a spot as one of the industry's most in-demand names during his tenure to date. Working on highly successful press campaigns for the likes of Tiësto, MK, and many more during his time at one of London's most premiere PR outfits, Gable has also proved his hand as a skilled journalist, interviewing acts such as Oliver Heldens, Martin Solveig, NERVO, and many more at international events like EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and Amsterdam Dance Event. Working tirelessly as the CEO & Founder of UK company The EVENT, Gable also doubles up as a tour manager, playlist curator, dance music influencer, and DJ, under his JK-GBL alias. Further adding strings to his bow as a freelance copywriter - where he has worked for numerous iconic artists such as Axwell, and labels, such as Third Party's Release Records - Gable is best known for producing two of the biggest editorials in We Rave You history; The first a breaking news story on Swedish House Mafia's return at Miami's Ultra Music Festival in 2018 (a world exclusive), and the second titled 'Avicii: The Truth...', an inquest into the EDM star's passing, published less than 24 hours after his death.
