Swedish-born Alesso is a musician, DJ and producer whose music we can’t stop hitting play on. We caught up with him to chat his career, superhero powers and touring essentials…
Your videos are amazing, which has been your favourite to create so far?
My latest video for ‘I Wanna Know’ has to be at the top of the list. We did one day of shooting with director Colin Tilley and I got to do most of the stunts for that day.
How would you describe your aesthetic and how does it inspire your music?
My aesthetic is modern and minimal. My music is inspired by a combination of this and how I’m feeling at a certain time.
Who’s the coolest person you’ve met so far?
I’ve met so many cool people throughout the years but one person I haven’t met yet but would love to is Hans Zimmer.
Where can we see you perform next?
I’ll be touring all summer in Europe and the Untied States. So just checkout alessoworld.com for dates.
Why do you think the relationship between fashion and music is so strong?
They are both ways to express yourself. Your choices send signals. I mean…. you shouldn’t be too obsessed by fashion but it’s a fun way to express yourself and when you’re young and out socialising music and fashion are two things that are a big part of that.
What makes you laugh?
What would be your superhero power?
To teleport from gig to gig so I’m less jet lagged.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
Drake! All day every day.
What’s your song to get you ready for a party?
Drake – ‘One Dance’
What has been your favourite place you’ve travelled to?
What items do you make sure you pack on your travels?
Hairbrush, black clothes, white vans, and my watches.
