Alok‘s CONTROVERSIA label welcomes German Giorgio Gee‘s debut on the label with his dynamic dance track “Hold On,” in collaboration with returning Brazilian talent Mojjo. The single opens with soulful male vocals expressing hope in tough times in their relationship, and Gee seamlessly incorporates a deep, groovy bassline. Instrumental toplines provide a cinematic touch to “Hold On” that makes it stand apart; it’s both a dancefloor filler and a radio-friendly record that perfectly complements CONTROVERSIA’s catalog of genre-bending releases. Giorgio Gee’s earlier notable singles include “Trippin'” and “Lady,” which have together amassed over 34M streams on Spotify. Mojjo has previously released on the label with Alok himself on “Love Love,” featuring Gilsons, and remixed Bhaskar and Alok’s “Killed By The City.”
“We wanted to produce a track that fuses deep and progressive elements of house music. While the breakdown delivers a bit more chilled but still intense vibe, we were still aiming at having some twists and turns, so that’s why the drop unexpectedly unleashes a bold brass melody and a driving bassline. The story we want to share with the listeners is that no matter how hard times are or how difficult a situation is in your life, you should believe in yourself and just hold on.” — Giorgio Gee & Mojjo
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, Mojjo, and now Giorgio Gee. Previously Gee has also released on labels including RCA/Sony, Kontor, Warner, and more, while Mojjo, next to Alok and Bhaskar, previously also worked with KVSH, Hungria Hip Hop, and more. CONTROVERSIA has consistently been releasing more and more cutting-edge singles, so keep an eye out for the next drop!

“I am releasing my second album titled “GLOBO” which is entirely focused on the upcoming football/soccer World Cup that will be held in Qatar this November. The inspiration behind the album dates back many years. I was born in London, England, and have had a massive passion for the sport from a very young age. I’ve always liked conceptualizing my projects around communal themes such as sports. The World Cup is something that happens once every four years, and there hasn’t really been a ‘World Cup’ album made by an artist before, so I decided to take on the grand challenge of creating one. It was an unbelievably difficult project, yet extremely fulfilling and emotional. I am blessed and grateful to have worked with so much talent from around the world to give the project what it deserves. The album has vast influences from different regions such as Latin America, North America, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, & Asia. I hope that this album connects with you and the rest of the world as it is immensely special to me!” — BLVD.

EDM Masterpiece “In My Zone” Will Get Stuck In Your Head!
Even though it’s been over 9 months since Tungevaag released this EDM masterpiece, “In My Zone” is still in heavy rotation on both playlists and DJ sets. Definitely, the vocals find a way to hit you right in the ear and the heart.
Believe it or not, the Norwegian producer worked on this tune for almost 6 months. Apparently, he applies the philosophy of working hard in silence and letting the results speak for themselves.
Furthermore, he describes the culmination of the whole project as a dream that came true.
Above all, what caught my attention is certainly the cinematic music video directed by Henry Lipatov. Many fans are comparing the visuals to the popular Fast & Furious film, and they’re probably correct.
On the other hand, if you’re driving a vehicle or motorcycle, this is the ideal track to feeling all the adrenaline running through your veins. Just make sure you’re wearing your seatbelt or helmet properly.
In short, there’s also something catchy about “In My Zone” that quickly gets stuck in your head. His formula is no longer a secret, and I think perseverance and passion were the main elements to obtain such an amazing song.
