Alesso enlists Deniz Koyu for progressive house-laced remix of ‘TIME’Alesso Press Shot

Swedish dance music sensation Alesso started the year strong with the release of his three-track EP, PROGRESSO VOLUME 1. Those who have seen the producer perform live know that the three tracks within the EP, “PROGRESSO,” “CONFESSION,” and “TIME” were far from new releases for the producer, who has been dropping the tracks in his live sets for quite a while.

Now, Alesso has enlisted Deniz Koyu to release a brand-new remix of the compilation’s hit track, “TIME.” The song was originally inspired by French house music, and in true Koyu fashion, the producer has added additional progressive house layers to add to the energy of the track. The remix’s accompanying music video is perfectly summarized in the festival-filled visuals. Koyu’s touch on the track makes it nearly impossible to sit still when listening to the remix.

Alesso releases first new music of 2019, ‘Progresso Volume 1’ mixtape

Alesso continues to raise the bar with each successive release. His latest effort, Progresso Volume 1, is a three-track EP that follows the Swedish DJ’s previous smash single, 2018’s “REMEDY.” Progresso Volume 1 signals a deliberate sonic shift from the vocal-centric construction of “REMEDY,” in its foregrounding of energizing synth work and beat arrangements that render each of the mixtape’s three cuts ready for main stage play.

“PROGRESSO” immediately sets the tone for the mixtape. The opening song’s chord progressions are decidedly dance-worthy, and the brief vocal that enters at the tune’s mid-way point functions as a plot twist of sonic sorts that slows “PROGRESSO” to stage a momentous build and subsequent drop.

The EP’s second inclusion, “CONFESSION,” delves into the traditional affective progressive sound characteristic of Alesso’s early productions. “TIME” is somewhat of an outlier in the context of the three-part project. Unlike the preceding numbers, “TIME” relies on a looping vocal hook throughout its run time and relaxes the faster pace that “PROGRESSO” and “CONFESSION” set. If any song on the mixtape gravitates toward pop-electronic hybrid designation, it’s “TIME,” which winds down the energy-spiking showing.

Altogether, Progresso Volume 1 is a high-intensity inaugural installment in Alesso’s new Progresso mixtape series.

Alesso‘s name is one that has been noticeably absent from recent electronic release circles. The dance pioneer, however, is poised to soon offer his first solo original production of 2019, Progresso Volume 1. The mixtape follows Alesso’s preceding contribution to Ninjawerks Vol. 1, “Tilted Towers.” The adrenaline-spiking single prescribed a walloping dose of big room sound to the compilation, which Astralwerks and Ninja jointly debuted in part in December 2018.

Prior to the Fortnite-inspired track, Alesso dropped “REMEDY,” a sultry, vocal-centric sing-a-long friendly tune that accounted for Alesso’s last single of 2018. Progresso Volume 1 remains elusive in its track list, but as the mixtape’s title indicates, the project will surely fuel streamers’ speakers with some new progressive house material.
