Alesso fans recieved a special treat on Saturday night as the Swedish superstar showed off his insane new stage at the Greek Theatre in LA.
The spectacle reportedly took four months to design and build, transforming from a little drawing on scrap of paper into an absolute behemoth, featuring 100 meters of floor-to-ceiling LED screens and enough lasers to put a Star Wars space battle to shame.
Check out some footage of the stage below.
A vocal can make or break a track. Yet, all to often, we rely on over-used sample packs, poor quality recordings or audio rips. Vocalizr is an online platform that creates a safe and useful connection between professional vocalists and producers.
The website, which launched in 2014, has 12,000 registered users and has successfully paid out $180,000 to artists for recording jobs completed through the site.
What was the first bit of kit that you bought?
“First peace of kit was my Nord Lead 4. At the time I didn’t now really how to play it properly or use it but I loved the sound I heard on all the demos etc.”
How do you create killer basslines?
“I sample a lot or use one of my Moog synths. I prefer to sample to be honest cause then I can be more creative. That is the thing I love the most in the studio; being creative.”
