Alesso-x-Rudy-2018-billboard-1548

Electronic music producer Alesso and YouTube personality and musician Rudy Mancuso are both working with Shots Studios entertainment company, which means it's quite easy for the two creatives to come together and make something exciting.

After some friendly hangs, the pair have come up with a collaboration. It's an instrumental track all about blending their styles, aptly-titled "Alesso x Rudy."

It begins with Mancuso on keys, laying down a riff that goes on to become the central theme. Alesso flips the riff in his laptop studio, then Mancuso picks it back up and adds some live drums. In the end, their styles mix together over a modified beat, breathing new life into the theme and the instrumental for a big finish. 

“It was such a joy watching Alesso work," Mancuso says. "He’s a perfectionist and true master of his craft. I had the opportunity to both learn from and collaborate with one of the best. I loved every minute.”

Alesso said they had "natural chemistry," and that he'd definitely work with Mancuso again, so be sure this is only the beginning of a fruitful collaborative friendship, certainly far from the end. Check out the video for "Alesso x Rudy" below.
