Brazilian DJ and producer Alok, currently holding the #4 spot on DJ Mag’s prestigious Top 100 DJs chart, took the stage at Untold Festival in Romania this past weekend to debut his stunning new live performance concept. Created in partnership with lighting, 3D animation, and video maestro Alexander Hesse, who was the mastermind behind Swedish House Mafia’s most recent tour production, Alok’s new show left jaws on the ground with its cutting-edge fusion of multidimensional visual storytelling. Most notable during his high-energy set was the presence of a new DJ booth, which was crafted of two massive hands. Always one for symbolism, the hands represented the universe’s energy channeling through the stage so Alok can pass it along to his audience, all live while he’s performing. The energetic transfer was more than successful, with Alok’s signature sound accompanied by larger-than-life, colorful, and emotive production for a truly immersive experience that just took his live shows to the next level and then some. Check out photos and videos from Untold here to see yourself what we are talking about, and keep an eye out for tour dates to see Alok live.
“Visual experiences at shows are as equally important as music these days. While DJs always channel their energy only through music, I wanted to find a way to take my performances to the next level and communicate better with the crowd using light, video, and 3D animation. Alex is one of the best specialists out there, so we sat down and came up with a concept of an entire show that also includes a new DJ booth, made of two big hands representing the energy of the Universe channeling through the stage, which I can pass along to the audience in front of me. The result was out of this world, so I’m already confident I’ll soon collaborate with more visual art experts.” — 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.

Feather Presents Sophomore EP ‘We Are For Each Other’
Channeling inspiration from earth elements and the wonders of human connection and collaboration, Feather is proud to release his sophomore EP, ‘We Are For Each Other.’ Featuring collaborations with artists such as Sintra, Lockbox, SEGØ, and more, Feather delivers a body of work filled with impressive depth, boundless creativity, and technical excellence as a self-release.
“While still making music on my own, I began to experiment in collaborations with other producers making similar music. Working with another producer (and artist for that matter) incorporates a whole new influx of ideas and influences and inspiration that can be very tricky to navigate. There is a lot of trial and error through attempting to work together (and learn if you are even capable of working together) as well as delicate sacrifice and compromise to try and make the best possible track you can with both parties leaving feeling creatively proud and fulfilled. Through working with many of these other artists I’ve been able to try new things, experiment with new sounds, techniques and genres and most importantly grow as a creative – learning what is and is not a good fit for me and the musical future of this project.” — Feather
6 tracks centered around the idea of artistic harmony and elemental influence, We Are For Each Other illuminates Feather’s innovative mindset and limitless potential as an artist. As a producer whose style is rooted in diversity, the EP delivers something for everyone, aiming to establish the Feather project as a staple of dance music in a market dominated by country music. From the soulful and energetic lyrics heard in “Wasted Time” with Badnights to the upbeat yet euphoric drops found in “Glaciers” with Lockbox and TRØVES, the desire for rich assortment is evident within the artist’s release, setting the stage for Feather to establish himself as a household name. Explore the tracklist below:
Feather & Lockbox – Glacier feat. TRØVES
Feather & Sintra – Let Go feat. Luma
Feather & Badnights – Wasted Time
Feather & SEGØ – Fixing Me feat. Rajiv Dhall
Feather & Lumasi – Tell Me feat. Gabriel Eli
Feather & 44hydra – Dusk
Feather & Herflex – We Are For Each Other
Although originally being part of an indie-pop band, Feather soon began to be exposed to the world of electronic music. After realizing that he could combine his admiration and talents for both genres, he began to create music that coalesced various elements into a unique style of sound. The artist’s inspiration for his newest EP can be found in the ebb and flow of nature and the essence of human connection. Each track from the release pulls influence from dominant themes found in the natural world. Components such as jungle flora and dark ambiance inspired “Let Go” while lush forests of pine trees set the mood for “Tell Me.” The unveiled artistic surge within We Are For Each Other is undoubtedly just the tip of the iceberg for Feather. Stay Tuned.

VIZE & R3HAB Join Forces On Euphonious Dance-Pop Single Via Sony Music
In the recent past, both VIZE and R3HAB have been able to celebrate great successes. The fact that these two heavyweights of the Dance scene have produced a song together is more than promising. Their new song “One Last Time” tells the story of dancing through the night together one last time before parting ways and leaving each other behind. It’s about living in the moment for a certain time. Musically, the song starts out acoustic and restrained. The soft vocals are accompanied by a piano and simple drums. The drop then combines the typical sounds of VIZE and R3HAB: on a fresh house beat comes the slapping bass, which is also known from other tracks of VIZE and R3HAB. The song sprays melancholic-cheerful vibes in every bar, which animate you to dance.
“We are very happy about our new release ‘One Last Time’ as it was a song that we loved from the first minute on. Working together with R3HAB was a pleasure, even though it was only from a distance. We hope our fans will be as hyped as we are about this collaboration. Cannot wait to play that during the upcoming club season!” — VIZE
“I’ve been following VIZE for many years, and I am excited that we’ve finally found the right opportunity to work together. I really enjoyed this creative process from day one; VIZE has a clear direction and excellent work ethic. ‘One Last Time’ is a record about coming to terms with reality and choosing to dance in the moment. It has a simple elegance to it, and I believe it is exactly what it needed to be.” — R3HAB
As briefly mentioned at the beginning, both VIZE and R3HAB have already had great success. VIZE (116k followers on Instagram), which consists of mastermind & producer Vitali Zestovskih and DJ/producer Johannes Vimalavong, have worked with big names like Alan Walker, Felix Jaehn, Afrojack, and Dimitri Vegas. With more than 2.5B streams and 1.3M records sold, as well as more than 30 gold and platinum awards in eight countries, they have already achieved some respectable successes. Projects with Capital Bras side project called Joker Bra have also been particularly successful. Here, the duo and Joker Bra landed a #1 hit in Germany with “Baby.” And they also currently reach a considerable audience on Spotify with more than 8.6M monthly listeners.
Multi-Platinum DJ and producer Fadil El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB, has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the past fifteen years. From his breakthrough remixes for Rihanna, Drake, Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, to anthems such as Platinum-certified “All Around The World (La La La)” and “Lullaby,” to his collaborations with the likes of Ava Max, ZAYN, Luis Fonsi, Sean Paul, and more, R3HAB has proven to be one of the most forward-thinking artists in the game. His work has collected over 8B streams to date, including 1.1B in 2021 alone. R3HAB founded his label CYB3RPVNK in 2016, which has passed 4B streams across platforms since its inception. He is Spotify’s Most Discovered Artist, one of Spotify’s top 200 most streamed artists, ranked #12 on prestigious DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs chart, and has earned over 70 Gold and Platinum certificates. On top of that, he performed at the world’s top festivals, such as EDC, Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Balaton Sound, Coachella, Summer Sonic Festival, DWP Jakarta. With his combination of innate artistry and innovative attitude, R3HAB has earned his place as a household name in dance music.
