Sebastian Ingrosso & Tommy Trash anthem ‘Reload’ turns 7 years old

2012 was no doubt one of the golden years for EDM. The scene was on fire with iconic track after iconic track, especially in the Progressive realm but when two particular artists combined their talents it was evident that the scene would never be the same again. Creating something that absolutely changed the entire game, Swedish House Mafia legend Sebastian Ingrosso and Australian producer maestro Tommy Trash shook the entire world with just one track. That track was, of course, ‘Reload’. 

One of the most highly recognisable and most respected songs in the industry still to this day, the original mix of Reload’ has just celebrated its seventh birthday. It’s hard to believe that this anthem is already nearly ten years old but a track like this just feels completely timeless. Released on Ingrosso’s Refune imprint back in September of 2012, the track saw huge commercial success. Hitting the number one spot on the UK and Scotland Dance Charts and getting within the number 5 spots in America and Sweden also, this lead to the track getting a 2 times platinum certification in Sweden and a silver certification in the UK. This track was the single follow up to Alesso and Ingrosso’s widely popular ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’. Along with the original mix version, the iconic vocal version was released alongside. Featuring the distinctive vocals of John Martin, he is also the voice behind Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ and was a co-writer for Avicii‘s ‘Fade Into Darkness’.

As we all know, ‘Reload’ is still played out by the big leagues constantly. First played in 2012 at a solo Sebastian Ingrosso show in Chicago, the track will never get old and that is evident with it still being a staple for many people in sets today, always getting a monsterous crowd reaction when the euphoric drop bursts through the speakers. The music scene will forever be grateful for Sebastian Ingrosso & Tommy Trash crafting this beautiful track. Do you have any special memories attached to ‘Reload’? Let us know in the comments!
