Alok is back on his imprint CONTROVERSIA with another cutting-edge club track that draws upon Rockwell‘s timeless party anthem with ‘Always Feel Like’. Although the iconic background vocals by Michael Jackson and his brother Jermaine instantly strike a nostalgic chord with listeners, this isn’t your parents’ version of ‘Somebody’s Watching Me’ from 1984. Following the footsteps of his premier future-tech track ‘The Club Is Jumpin’ from May this year, Alok expertly crafts a sonic journey with future house-inspired basslines and dynamic synths, making ‘Always Feel Like’ a bonafide club banger that feels right at home in the best clubs and festivals across the globe. All that without losing the old-school vibe of Rockwell‘s original. The track follows Alok‘s recent radio-friendly single ‘Deep Down’, which is going strong at over 30M streams on Spotify alone, constantly growing by a few million new spins weekly on the platform alone, and on the radio airwaves globally. This summer has been a hot one for the Brazilian star, with headline performances at Tomorrowland, Untold, Neversea, Balaton Sound, EXIT Festival, and multiple events in Ibiza as part of Alok‘s residency on the The White Island.
With a strong resume full of remixes and collaborations with artists such as The Rolling Stones to Zara Larsson, from Jason Derulo to Tove Lo, and more, Brazilian Alok has gained an immense international following and is currently having his global breakout moment. He already has the second-largest Instagram following of any electronic artist globally (almost 28M), and his 20M devoted monthly listeners on Spotify have made him the most listened-to Brazilian artist in the world. In 2021, he was named the 4th Best DJ in the world, according to the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll. In 2019, Alok was nominated for the International Dance Music Awards for his hit remix of the Meduza single ‘Piece of Your Heart’, and he also worked with global pop sensation Dua Lipa for the official remix of her hit single ‘Physical’. Recently he also collaborated with Grammy-award pop sensation John Legend on ‘In My Mind’ and with renegade vocalist John Martin on ‘Wherever You Go’ and lent his talents to remix Ed Sheeran‘s ‘Shivers’. The sky is the limit for the Brazilian superstar.
