Best of 2012: Alesso

Alesso makes his debut on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix.

Alessandro Lindblad (his real name) is the latest Swedish sensation to come out of the House Mafia camp. He released his first EP less than two years ago on Stockholm label Joia, which is run by Luciano Ingrosso (Sebastian's uncle). He's worked with David Guetta, Avicii and, most notably, his mentor Seb Ingrosso, on the huge track 'Calling', now called 'Lose My Mind'.
