Alesso and Roy English have a pretty uplifting, catchy single in "Cool". We brought you the audio stream when it was first released, and the video lives up to the track in a very big way. We see a young, introverted Alesso as he makes his way to school. We see an outcast with a keen resemblance to Harry Potter as he deals with his anxiety about the upcoming school dance, and then we see him get loose on the dance floor with the lady of his dreams. He undermines the perptual images devoted to making us think that all of these popular dj's are extra cool, and in doing so creates something relatable and honest.
A job well done!

This album has been a while in the making, and it's the result of tireless efforts from two of the foremost artists in modern dance music. Since the release of "Take U There" with Kiesza they've hinted at a proper full length album in the works. Yesterday they did a 24 hour live stream of an epic dj set, and following this Jack U internet party they've suddenly dropped the album. This one features the single, and the Missy Elliott remix as well as tracks with a wide variety of special guests including 2chainz, Bunji Garlin, AlunaGeorge, Kai and even Justin Bieber.
