Damn, we’re getting old. This Tuesday marked the 6th anniversary of one of the best, if not the best, progressive house song ever. In March 13th, 2012, Sebastian Ingrosso, Alesso, and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder’s “Calling (Lose My Mind)” was released.
By that time, in 2012, progressive house was in its prime, especially due to the position Swedish House Mafia were in, with tracks like Save The World, Greyhound, and later Don’t You Worry Child rocking stages across the globe. Thus, and after lots of months of IDing, the much-awaited collaboration between one of SHM’s members, Ingrosso, with his protégée, Alesso, came out.
As we know, the track had massive success, whether in the EDM “world” or outside it. As a matter of fact, “Calling” led Billboard’s prestigious Hot Dance Club Songs, and entered the top 10 overall charts as well, as it was the case of Australia and UK. Given its quality, it also was featured on the renowned “Until Now”, the second SHM album.
Both artists have already celebrated this anniversary in a “lovely” way on social media. In a time when we are probably close to see the legendary Swedish trio reunite in the 20th edition of Ultra Miami, it is very unlikely not to imagine them playing “Calling” at Bayfront Park. Let’s wait and see!
