You probably know Alan Walker from his hit song “Faded”.

Shooting him into stardom, the progressive house track achieved multi-platinum status, even being played out and remixed by some of the biggest names in dance music. In fact, Tiesto remixed it twice.

The Norwegian superstar was quick to prove he is not a one-hit wonder. Capitalizing on the success of “Faded”, he began consistently putting out great music, touring the world, building a unique persona and cultivating a global following. Some of his most popular tracks include “Sing Me To Sleep” and “The Spectre”, and he has developed an artistic brand centered around a sense of enigma.

This weekend, Walker will be joining Beats 1 for their weekly mix series, One Mix. In his own words, it will be “energetic, diverse and refreshing.” Apart from his own originals and remixes, expect tracks from the likes of R3hab, Avicii, Galantis and Marshmello.
