Last week, when i first heard OneRepublic’s latest single titled “If I lose Myself” , i was like – huh? Isn’t, OneRepublic supposed to be a Rock Band or something? Well, what to say when every other artist/band is trying to bring something new to the table. Trying to venture into new, unexplored or totally unrelated genres. Still, i find the track quite reasonable. But, just today .. i heard a brand new remix to the same track. And guess what, it kind of blew me away!
Alesso, the name might sound unusual to you but it’s nowhere near to unusual when it comes to the progressive house/house genre fans all around the globe. Barely 21, the swedish “not really a kid” started with the underground remixing scene. Remixing his favorite productions from already famous or known DJs with the likes of – Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto etc.
Considering he just started producing and remixing records, a three years back in 2010 and his progress from no. 70 spot on DJ MAGAZINE‘s top 100 DJs in 2010 to no. 20 in their top DJs in 2012 list, is in simplest of words – is nothing short of a massive achievement.
And this new remix shows nothing but Alesso’s vision and a cunning control over his genre, which is mainly house/progressive house. I found the official stream to the remix. Go and check out his sound page at soundcloud.com/Alesso for more mixes/records.
