The EDM culture is one that embraces craziness. Whether in the form of costumes, lighting, or over-the-top stage props, the motto seems to be the wilder the better. The Uprising North America Tour featuring Alesso is headed to Seattle on November 11th and he promises to bring the type of music one can “feel in their bones.”

Alesso or Alessandro Lindbald as he was born, is a DJ out of Sweden and really didn’t gain his current level of fame until 2011 when his remix of “Pressure” became an EDM standard. A DJ who’s productions usually fit in the house category, Alesso is similar to Sebastian Ingrosso, Dirty South or Nicky Romero.



A fan favorite, Alesso can’t praise his fans enough and even let one pant his chest before a live set. In an interview with The Independent Blogs Alesso said:

“I’m still pretty young, so everything that’s happening at the moment is still kind of shocking for me! I’m just starting to get used to this so-called ‘lifestyle’ that represents many first-time experiences for me, quite a lot of unexpected moments, I even feel sometimes like pinching myself to check ‘Is this real?’ It’s amazing to be offered the opportunity to do these wonderful things at my age. Luckily my dreams have been fulfilled very quickly, and I’m more than happy about that but beyond the excitement, sometimes you do need to sit down and take the time to realize what’s going on.”
