Two iconic electronic dance music artists in their prime came together for what some may call the best track of 2013. Swedish sensation Alesso combined with Scottish artist Calvin Harris in the studio for the first time to deliver a progressive gem titled ‘Under Control’. Gaining over 500 million streams since its release, this anthem proved to be a huge success for both artists. This collab was released on the 7th of October 2013.
Hailing from Stockholm, Alesso won over his country from the very start of his career. Over the years, he has cemented himself as one of the most in-demand DJs on the globe, headlining festivals across the world such as Tomorrowland, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, Creamfields, and more. On the production front, he has not slowed down since his first hit ‘Calling’, most recently returning to his progressive house sound with ‘Progresso’ EPs.
Across twelve years and five albums, Scotland’s Calvin Harris has set his own agenda for global domination. From the retro-centric vibes of his debut album, ‘I Created Disco’, to spearheading the American EDM explosion with third album ’18 Months’, to his most recent conceptual ‘LP Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1’, Calvin Harris‘ career has been underpinned by a desire to take his sound into new and meaningful avenues, crossing boundaries along the way.
