Rockwell
Alok
is back on his imprint CONTROVERSIA with another cutting-edge club track that draws upon Rockwell‘s timeless party anthem with “Always Feel Like. Although the iconic background vocals by Michael Jackson and his brother Jermaine instantly strike a nostalgic chord with listeners, this isn’t your parents’ version of “Somebody’s Watching Me” from 1984. Following the footsteps of his premier Future-Tech track “The Club Is Jumpin'” from May this year, Alok expertly crafts a sonic journey with Future House-inspired basslines and dynamic synths, making “Always Feel Like” a bonafide club banger that feels right at home in the best clubs and festivals across the globe.
