Swedish DJ and producer Alesso released his mixtape Progresso Volume 1 on Friday 8 March 2019.
The three-track mixtape features the songs Time, Progresso and Confession. The album begins with Time, a pop-dance tune that features catchy vocals reminiscent of an 80’s disco song. Following this is the progressive house track Progresso, which showcases Alesso’s classic high-energy and up-tempo beats alongside pristine vocals and massive bass drops. Confession wraps up the mixtape with it’s house pulsation coupled with warped vocals and metallic synths.
In an article published by WeRaveYou on Sunday, 10 March 2019, Alesso commented on the mixtape, stating “This project, for me, is about going back to my roots and making house records. I wanted to represent the culture of dance music through this mixtape. Each song is powerful and unique. It’s about telling a story of the past and the future of the genre through the music.”
