Ingrosso and Alesso Light Up BJC

EDM superstar Sebastian Ingrosso, one-third of supergroup Swedish House Mafia, performed at the Bryce Jordan Center last night along with openers Alesso, a rising star in the genre, and David Solano, a regular Dayglow DJ. It was no surprise to see Solano, as the event, named State of Emergency, was hosted by Dayglow’s parent company, Committee Entertainment.

Committee brought their usual set-up, including a stage that was covered in eight LED screens, lasers, lights, and confetti machines. The production was absolutely amazing as has come to be expected with Committee, just a taste of what’s to come in April when Dayglow takes over the Bryce Jordan Center for two nights.

Solano went on stage just before 8 p.m., dropping crowd-pleasers like “R3hab” and Swanky Tunes’ “Sending My Love” throughout his set. The crowd seemed antsy, perhaps from the various narcotics kicking in, but most likely in expectation of Alesso making his way up to the booth. Now that I think about it, it was probably a combination of both. After approximately 45 minutes, Solano disappeared and soon after the event’s co-headliner took over the controls.

There’s no doubt that Alesso brought the energy, exciting the crowd that seemingly jumped up and down continuously for the entire night. He dropped original songs like “Nillionaire” and “Raise Your Head”, remixes such as his take on David Guetta’s “Titanium” and Nadia Ali’s “Pressure”, and popular mixes like the 2011 EDM anthem, Avicii’s “Levels”. As Alesso wrapped up his set, the confetti machine blasted for the first time, raining an infinite amount of white paper over the crowd.

That’s when the man that everybody came to see took the stage: Sebastian Ingrosso. The Swedish House Mafia DJ had the audience even more hyped than Alesso. He played SHM classics like “One”, “Antidote”, and “Save the World” as well as recent releases like “A Million Voices” by Otto Knows, which was an inclusion on Ingrosso’s latest podcast. The most memorable remix played during his set was a mashup of the two widely popular songs “Feel So Close” by Calvin Harris and “Tung” by Deniz Koyu, called “Feel So Tung” for obvious reasons.

When Ingrosso was done, the crowd wasn’t ready to stop raging, and either was David Solano, who made his way back to the booth and played a couple songs, including Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Ni**as In Paris”, before being told that he had needed to stop by arena officials. Despite that small mix-up, it seems that the night went successfully enough for Bernie Punt, the Bryce Jordan Center’s director of marketing, to confirm that Dayglow is on. See you all there.
