"Under Control" which features Calvin Harris and Theo Hutchcraft, has gotten serious critical acclaim since its release, while its music video reached 2.5 million views in its first day.
The Mayans were wrong. Two months short of a year ago, the world was predicted to end. But it didn't, which would explain why we're all still here today, keeping you in the know of what's going on in the dance music world.
Today, Calvin Harris, along with Alesso and Theo Hutchcraft from Hurts released the official music video for their collaboration, "Under Control." The theme of the music video is a play on the apocalypse that was rumored to occur in December 2012. If it had, Calvin, Alesso, and Theo show us exactly how they would have spent their last hours on earth- by partying.
Alesso, born Alessandro Lindblad in Stockholm, Sweden, has had quite an exciting year, with main stage shows at Summerburst Sweden, Electric Zoo, Ultra, Creamfields, Tomorrowland, Radio 1 Ibiza, and Departures Ibiza, as well as being a supporting act for Swedish House Mafia on One Last Tour, and having a residency at The Light Las Vegas--to name a few. We will see him next at Tomorroworld in Atlanta, at the end of this month. Following that, he will appear at the Stereosonic Festival in Australia this November.
