Alok Returns With New Tune “Slow It Down” And 17-Track Compilation



Brazilian maestro Alok is back on his CONTROVERSIA label for the 7th installment of his notable CONTROVERSIA by Alok compilation series, and listeners are in for a treat on this sonic journey. Featuring an epic total of 17 tracks, including 9 unreleased ones, including Alok’s brand new track “Slow It Down,” leading the pack of exclusive pieces from DISORDER & Dynamick, Dallerium, Higher Lane, HLX, Basstian, and more. Opening the mix with Alok’s stunning “Slow It Down,” which is a deep and sultry progressive house that will have listeners grooving on the dancefloor. Plastik Funk and B Jones give their own flavors to it, while new artists to the label make a strong start. The newcomers include Andrew A on his emotive “Fade Away,” Ted Troll’s cinematic “Breathe Again,” and more. CONTROVERSIA can always be counted on for diverse and dynamic sounds, and this new compilation does not disappoint. Alok drops it after a hot run this summer, with his remix for Marshmello & Khalid’s “Numb” on RCA Records, and his radio-friendly “Deep Down,” which just surpassed 55M streams on Spotify and is currently leading Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart at #1 for the 4th week in a row.

“The 7th edition of our compilation brings together handpicked tracks, which are part of my concert repertoire and also of the ‘Controversia Radio Show,’ with weekly distribution to radio stations around the world. Anxious to know what you guys think, however, very satisfied with the result.” — 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 (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 lended his talents to remix Ed Sheeran’s “Shivers.” The sky is the limit for the Brazilian superstar.

Alok’s CONTROVERSIA continues to go from strength to strength, and this latest release is another fine example of a label making all the right moves to maintain its impressive forward momentum. Since its inception in June 2019, CONTROVERSIA has accumulated over 1B Spotify streams thanks to its remarkable family of artists, including Yves V, Alan Walker, Bhaskar, Alle Farben, Vintage Culture, and more. All of whom have helped CONTROVERSIA quickly establish itself as one of the most successful independent labels in dance music today.
