Alesso mix of old-but-gold and brand new progressive is what we need at Ultra Miami

Alesso Ultra Miami 2022
Alesso Ultra Miami 2022

Bringing the Swedish flag on Ultra Miami mainstage this year is the one and only Alesso. Floating between old-but-gold songs and brand new music, Alesso’s set perfectly matches all the electronic music we have always loved. It’s not a case that his set is always one of the most awaited during the whole festival.

Using TENET soundtrack, Ludwig Göransson Freeport to be more specific, to open your first set at Ultra Miami after the two years stop, is not something everybody would do. But Alesso is definitely not everybody and his intro edit with Somebody To Use is pure class. And if this wasn’t enough, the cherry on top is he dropped right away a brand new tune.

Non-stop percussive rhythm, hypnotic vibes, and mysterious harmonies, everything packed together for some serious electronic-progressive house. Forget the pop-Alesso of the lat period, the one that collab with Katy Perry or Marshmello. His Ultra Miami 2022 is everything we have always loved from the Swedish superstar. Together vs Cool, Under Control, PROGRESSO one after the other with no slow downtime or pauses. A continues hammering that won’t make you stop dancing.

Around half of the performance, Alesso played his brand new bass-electronic-progressive house ID. And if you’re asking yourself where are the classic, that’s the moment. Laktos vs. Calling (Lose My Mind) (Sebastian Ingrosso Mashup) is the beginning of the “blast-in-the past” section where Alesso played his iconic mashup until the very end. We can’t blame the girl crying when Calling kicked in. Talking about mashups, Alesso & Sentinel vs. Tove Lo Only You vs. Heroes is probably the best of the night hand down.


And then, there’s the finale; the classic, the iconic, the legendary Alesso & OneRepublic vs. Sebastian Ingrosso & Tommy Trash If I Lose Myself vs. Reload. Girls at 57:12, we feel you.
