Ever since Swedish House Mafia’s reunion, all eyes are back on progressive house music. After producing some of the finer progressive house songs such as “Years,” “Calling,” and “If I Love Myself,” Alesso has been highly sought after to return to his 2012 vibes that everyone once fell in love with.
