Brazilian maestro Alok just dropped the 6th installment of his ‘CONTROVERSIA Vol. 006′ compilation, which showcases the forward-thinking sound that the label represents right now. This time the album features 13 tracks, 8 of which are exclusive, never-released productions, coming from international talents, such as CONTROVERSIA’s very own Bhaskar, ÜHÜ together with startups like Capsm – a talented visually impaired artist, Nyella – who is the first female producer to have a solo single on the label, and rising Ukrainian artist Scott Rill. The sonic journey spans a myriad of genres, from the deep progressive opener “I Feel U” to emotive and ethereal like in Tineway & Ytan’s “Telling” and Modica’s eastern organic influenced “Don’t Stop.” What has to be also mentioned, CONTROVERSIA has just surpassed 1B Spotify streams on their catalog, achieving another milestone.
“The arrival of the 6th edition of the compilation and following the recognition that previous installments have received is a huge joy to me. The concept continues to meet our main objective, which is to maximize the reach and recognition of the Brazilian electronic music scene here in Brazil as well as abroad, giving space to a vast number of artists to create and present their music to wider audiences. With a lot of effort, today, Controversia’s releases are being presented weekly to millions of listeners around the world through the Controversia Radio Show, which was also recently featured as a label showcase on Tomorrowland’s OneWorld Radio. I had a great time plowing through the tons of demo submissions to pick the tracks and artists I currently like the most, so I hope you’ll enjoy the selection, which includes 8 exclusive productions you can hear only on the compilation.” — Alok
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 (over 27M), 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 lended his talents to remix Ed Sheeran’s “Shivers.” The sky is the limit for the Brazilian superstar.

If you’re on the hunt for Dance music with female vocals, your search stops right here. VASSY, the electrifying artist known for her powerful vocals and chart-topping hits, has unleashed her brand new music video for “Krazy.”
There’s no denying it; this is a gift for those who live for the party scene! Additionally, her singing voice steps into the limelight, by injecting the song with a blend of energy and heartfelt emotion.

On the other hand, while it’s true that music appreciation is deeply personal, I still believe that dance music with female vocals sounds better than male vocals because they are more melodic, emotive, and harmonious. Of course, this comes accompanied by songwriting, and the production quality.
In short, “Krazy” will leave you wanting more, so look no further, and explore more options via Spotify through the Best Running Playlist — Top EDM 2023.
