Alessandro Lindblad, more commonly known as Alesso, is a DJ and dance music producer from Stockholm, Sweden. His career quickly gained mainstream recognition for his remixes of Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia, and Avicii, as well as his own productions. His first major achievement came in 2011, when his remix of Nadia Ali’s track “Pressure” was one of the most successful EDM tracks of the year. Later in the same year, he placed in DJ Mag’s Top 100 list, debuting at number 70. Early 2012 also started well for him, when he was named an MTV “one to watch,” made his first BBC Radio 1 essential mix, and earned the Track of the Year award on Zane Lowe’s prime-time Radio 1 slot for the single “Calling (Lose My Mind).” He also managed to move up many notches in DJ Mag’s DJ of the Year listings to number 20. He leaped to major success when he had a U.K. chart number one with his collaborative single “Under Control” alongside Calvin Harris and Hurts. In 2014, he inked a deal with Def Jam Recordings, and in 2015 he issued his debut album, Forever, which included the singles “Tear the Roof Up,” “Cool,” and “Heroes (We Could Be),” the latter of which featured Swedish pop star Tove Lo. The following year, he issued a pair of collaborations with prominent Asian pop stars. A version of “I Wanna Know” featuring Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai on vocals was promoted in Ibiza and Shanghai, while “Years” received a K-pop revamp with EXO’s Chen. In 2017, he scored a modest hit on the all-star collaboration “Let Me Go,” which featured Hailee Steinfeld, Andrew Watt, and Florida Georgia Line. The track hit the Top 40 across the globe, rising to number six on the Billboard Dance/Electronic chart. After closing out that year with the Anitta collaboration “Is That for Me,” Alesso returned in 2018 with the solo single “Remedy.”

It was in 2014 that Alesso acted in the RFM SOMNII, edition that led 60,000 people to Praia do Relógio, in Figueira da Foz. It was also on this occasion, and how it was received by the public, that Alesso published “One of my favourite shows ever!” on his personal Facebook page. In 2019, the Nordic DJ and producer returns to the festival and will again have the most beautiful recipes to bring a multitude to the stratosphere.
