Released 12 Years Ago: Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso – Calling (Lose My Mind)

Twelve years ago, on March 13, 2012, the world of electronic dance music was gifted with ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’ by Swedish producers Alesso and Sebastian Ingrosso, featuring vocals from Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic. This track not only received critical acclaim but also achieved widespread commercial success, being certified 2x Platinum in Sweden and reaching #1 on Billboard’s US Hot Dance Club Songs chart. ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’ played a pivotal role in Alesso‘s rise in the EDM scene, marking the beginning of a series of hit singles that would establish him as one of the genre’s leading artists.

Alessandro Lindblad, known professionally as Alesso, is a renowned DJ and dance music producer from Stockholm. He rapidly gained recognition for his skillful remixes for artists like Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia, and Avicii, as well as through his own productions. Alesso‘s remix of Nadia Ali’s ‘Pressure’ in 2011 was a standout EDM track, paving the way for future hits such as ‘Years’, ‘Calling’, ‘Under Control’, and ‘If I Lose Myself’.

Sebastian Ingrosso, a member of the iconic Swedish House Mafia, has been influential in the EDM world, both as a solo artist and as part of the supergroup. Known for his collaborations with Steve Angello and Axwell, Ingrosso has an impressive catalog of music that spans from original productions to remixes for various artists. Following the disbandment of Swedish House Mafia in 2013, he teamed up with Axwell to form the duo Axwell & Ingrosso, achieving hits like ‘Sun Is Shining’ before reforming the group in 2018.

‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’ remains a defining track in the careers of Alesso and Ingrosso, embodying the essence of EDM with its emotive vocals, uplifting melodies, and memorable beats. This collaboration is a testament to their collective talent and their ability to create music that resonates with audiences worldwide.
