Private Party Playlists: Alesso

The Swedish DJ, producer and roof-raiser shares his tunes


Compiled by Kasia Hastings


Stockholm-born, DJ-producer Alesso's energy-filled tracks have seen him conquer the charts. The 23-year-old has collaborated with Calvin Harris, One Republic and, most recently, fellow Swede Tove Lo on track "Heroes".

Summer 2014 saw the house maestro sign to Def Jam Recordings, and with the promise of a surprising mix of genres on his upcoming record, who better to kick-off our season of private party playlists?


Otto Knows - Parachute (Bottai Remix)

Otto is a friend of mine and he’s done a great job with this track and the remix is sick.

Gregor Salto and Wiwek - On your Mark

I play this in almost everyone of my sets. It's CRAZY.

DubVision – Turn It Around

Pure progressive – just gets me so pumped! 

RL Grime – Tell Me

This song is MENTAL. I love everything that RL Grime has been releasing lately – it's a lot of fun. 

Porter Robinson - Sea of Voices

Gives me goosebumps all over! 

Calvin Harris / John Newman – Blame 

Calvin has been doing great with the new album and this is one of my favourites. 

Tove Lo - My Gun

This song is a little explicit and I don’t know if it will ever make it to radio but I love it.

Mr. Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Radio Edit)

Such a feel-good tune – could keep it on repeat all night.

London Grammar - Wasting My Young Years

This song is filled with so much passion and emotion which is something I try to express with all of my own music. 

Coldplay – Magic

It’s one of the best songs I’ve heard in a long time. It's so emotional and goes straight into my heart! 

Alesso’s track ‘Heroes (We Could Be)’ is out on December 21 and available to pre-order on itunes.

You can catch Alesso on tour in the UK at the o2 Academy Brixton, December 18 and 19, and at Warehouse Project Manchester on December 20.
