Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Alesso has today released a brand new video for his track ‘Progresso’. The video is the second visual release from his new mixtape, ‘Alesso Mixtape – Progresso Volume 1’ – the first in an ongoing series of special track collections out on Virgin EMI.
The three-song mixtape, which is available now, finds the influential artist returning to a more club-inspired sound. The new video, which was produced by Shots Studios, continues the intergalactic theme seen in previous visuals including ‘Time’. A third, for ‘Confession’, will be released on 25th April.
Alesso says: “This project, for me, is about going back to my roots and making house records. I wanted to represent the culture of dance music through this mixtape. Each song is powerful and unique. It’s about telling a story of the past and the future of the genre through the music.
“‘Progresso’ starts so powerfully, and then about two minutes in, the incredible vocals come in and everything slows down. It feels like you’re floating as Ale Alberti sings ‘save me now’. It’s beautiful and I love the way it builds back up. I can’t wait to play this one live.”
Alesso, one of the world’s most influential DJs and producers who has over three billion streams to his name, will play UK live shows this summer. Following his epic set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, which is available on YouTube, the global music star will play shows in London, Liverpool and Glasgow in June bringing his must-see live experience, with world-renowned electronic music and visuals, to British fans.
