Katy Perry and Alesso‘s fans didn’t expect this secret collaboration called “When I’m Gone.“ One way or another, it feels refreshing for the American Pop singer to conquer new musical terrains.
However, this will be the second time she experiments with electronic sonic textures. In 2019, she did a similar tune with Future Bass producer Zedd, together they dropped the underrated gem “365.”
Despite the club-ready grooves on “When I’m Gone,” her newest masterpiece is also radio-friendly enough.
The music video looks futuristic and edgy, therefore, it will grab your attention right away. Directed by Hannah Lux Davis, visuals feature a Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot dog. Add to this, an energetic choreography at some abandoned oil-refinery facility.
Sincerely, the whole concept reminds me of Britney Spears’ ‘Till The World Ends’ era, which is totally acceptable. Obviously, at its essence, art is a process of transformation.
In conclusion, “When I’m Gone” is a song you will be jamming to in the next weeks. Best of all, Katy Perry is back with her black, long hairstyle. Certainly, it feels more like it’s her again.
What do you think? Is she evolving musically or just following trends?

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.

Bhaskar Returns With Retrowave-Inspired Jam “Hours And Hours”
Brazilian DJ and producer Bhaskar returns to his family label CONTROVERSIA with a mesmerizing new single — “Hours and Hours.” Blending EDM with Retrowave sounds, the release is truly a testament to his ability to experiment and master different genre-bending styles. It opens with groovy 80s-inspired melodies and surreal vocal hooks overtop of deep, driving basslines for an experience that will both give you goosebumps and make you get on the dancefloor right away. “Hours and Hours” is a sultry but energetic gem that follows his recent single “Round My Head” with Yves V and “U Got My Body,” also on Alok’s label.
“This song was really fun to make because I can participate in the whole creative process. First, I got the vocals from the songwriters, but there were some things I wanted to change in the vocals. So I had a meeting with them, gave them my suggestions, and we were able to adjust. Regarding the instrumental, I was based a lot on what I have proposed for my last songs, which is to make music more for the dance floor. So I wanted to keep its atmosphere which is more of a “deep” thing, but at the same time make it rock on the dance floor. I’m very happy with the result, and it has worked a lot in my sets.” — Bhaskar
Bhaskar began his history in 2004, still at age 12, when his first project with his twin brother Alok started. It all began as a hobby, but in a short time, they were already splitting their time between the studies and the studio. Son of renowned DJs Swarup and Ekanta, Bhaskar was inspired by his parents’ success and soon started to tour the world playing his music. Throughout his career, the Brazilian has collected a few hits to his name, including “Fuego” (145M+ Spotify streams) and “Infinity” (110M+ Spotify streams). His talents have led him to collaborate with and remix artists, including Tomorrowland resident Yves V, Moguai, Dubdogz, Wankelmut, Lucas Estrada, the Brazilian pop star Anitta and his brother Alok. Bhaskar has some more surprises up his sleeve, and we can’t wait to see what’s next!
