Alesso has long been known for his association with the guys from Swedish House Mafia, which has led to some fans grouping his sound in with the uplifting Swedish style of house music. The producer has overcome this by consistently creating tracks that highlight his originality. His impressive catalogue prevents him from being pigeonholed into a specific type of sound.
With his new single, "Tear The Roof Up," Alesso has produced a ridiculously energetic track that also shows restraint. Creating a track that makes fans go crazy while still ensuring that the track possesses substance takes a great deal of talent.
"Tear The Roof Up" was premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show, and it received the "Future Exclusive" distinction from the world-famous radio show host. The single will be Alesso's first release on Def Jam Recordings/Virgin EMI UK.
"Tearing the roof off" is a phrase that has been overused in the music world. Consequently, I would usually be against a producer using a vocal that says, "Tear the roof up." But in this case, the track has the potential to be a mainstay in festival sets for the rest of the summer, and I have no problem with the vocal.
In a press release for the track, Alesso stated, “I wanted to make a massive song that would literally make people want to tear off the roof.” You did well, Alesso.
