Today marks 8 years since Swedish maestro Alesso blessed the world with his unforgettable remix of Nadia Ali, Starkillers and Alex Kenji’s monster collaboration; ‘Pressure’. While the original was released in mid-February back in 2011, Alesso’s take was released some 3 months later, with Calvin West, Clocx, Rene Amesz, as well as Matan Caspi and Eddy Good, also having the pleasure of releasing their own remixes.
Released just in time for the summer of 2011, Alesso’s remix made its way into the sets of Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Kaskade, Calvin Harris and Swedish House Mafia, with Kaskade describing the track as the “tune of 2011”. In addition to this, the remix was also nominated for the ‘Best Progressive Track’ at the 27th International Dance Music Awards at the Winter Music Conference.
2011 proved to be one of Alesso’s most productive years in his career, having released 9 official remixes – some of which, included ‘Party Rock Anthem’, ‘Save The World’, and ‘Titanium’. While the spectacular Swede has been somewhat quiet on the releases front over the past 18 months, he recently teamed up with Deniz Koyu on their remix of ‘Time’, much to the delight of their fans.
