Alesso Signs to Def Jam & Debuts New Track

Def Jam announced today that they’ve signed Swedish DJ/producer Alesso to a recording contract. The news came as Alesso debuted his first release for the label, “Tear The Roof Up,” on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1’s show.
The high-energy track has been a staple in Alesso’s set for months, including his appearance at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas.
Alesso is the second DJ to sign with Def Jam following Afrojack’s deal in 2013. The rising DJ/producer has been gaining momentum over the last year thanks to his collaboration with Calvin Harris, “Under Control,” along with his remix of One Republic’s “If I Lose Myself,” which was nominated for a Grammy this year.

“I wanted to make a massive song that would literally make people want to tear off the roof.” – Alesso
