Famed Swedish DJ and producer Alessandro Lindblad — better known to EDM fans as Alesso — has signed a worldwide management deal with Shots Studios, an entertainment company that functions as a record label, talent management firm, production outfit, and multi-channel network.
Lindblad, 26, is perhaps best known for producing Heroes (We Could Be) featuring Tove Lo. He is also a Grammy nominee and has clocked roughly 1 billion Spotify streams, according to Billboard, which was first to report the signing. Other musicians inked to Shots include producer Jason ‘Poo Bear’ Boyd (best known for his work with Justin Bieber) and the Brazilian pop star Anitta — for whom Shots will provide management services and also produce music videos.
Lindblad, who was previously managed by ATM Artists‘ Amy Thomson, will collaborate with Boyd and Anitta on upcoming songs, according to Billboard.
“Whether he’s in the studio or on stage, it’s clear that [Alesso] deeply cares for his craft, and that resonates with people,” Shots co-founder and CEO John Shahidi told the outlet. “We’ve got some really great things in the works.” Added co-founder and chief product officer Sam Shahidi: “Alesso, the artist, is incredibly talented and Alesso, the person, is even better. I couldn’t be more excited to have the chance to work with him.”
