Nadia Ali, Starkillers & Alex Kenji “Pressure” (Alesso Remix)

Today’s song is produced by something akin to a mini super group of Electronic Dance Music artists. The song’s musical pedigree comes from DJ/Producers Nic Terranova aka Starkillers, and Alessandro Bacci aka Alex Kenji. These two are well respected producers and DJs who are both on the cusp of becoming household names. I hear both of their influences on today’s song “Pressure”. The track is not complete though until you add the sensuous and delicate vocals of Nadia Ali. The original mix of the song has a nice thumping House beat and is a standard club anthem (Check it out HERE). However it really isn’t quite finished unitl it is given a final coat by 18 year old Swedish DJ/Producer Alesso . This talented wunderkind has been gaining massive amounts of attention after his track “Nillioniare” was played by the Swedish House Mafia during their recent tour. He has since been signed to SHM’s Sebastian Ingrosso’s label Refune.

If you listen to the Original Mix then the Alesso remix you can hear what he has done to the song by adding emotional tension. In the remix when Nadia Ali sings ” So much pressure, So much heat, So much hassle, They want me” you can FEEL the bit of anguish in her vocals. It is just not as apparent in the original mix and the track is just bigger and better under Alesso’s manipulation. Keep an eye out for him in the future. Take a listen and please leave a comment.
