What a sweetheart. This PLUR’d out video finds Alesso quietly reflecting on 2012, a year that will most certainly go down in his diary as one of his finest. The Swedish up-and-comer recounts the tour he went on for his 21st birthday, his bromance with Seb Ingrosso, and why Coachella was one of the best performances he’s ever given.
In front of the peaceful murmurings of fellow Scandinavians Sigur Rós, the ever-humble Alessandro Lindblad tells us that for him, 2012 was all about love. He also explains the inspiration behind his smash hit “Years” – “Everything I’m doing now is something I’m gonna remember for the rest of my life.” We will too, buddy. See you soon!
The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
