Published

Yves V
Tomorrowland resident Yves V makes his triumphant return to Alok’s label CONTROVERSIA with his new track “Round My Head, for which he teamed up with the label’s regular and their very own artist Bhaskar. The release is a dance-pop crossover suitable for both festival dance floors and radio airwaves, with dreamy and rhythmic male vocals. With the groovy melodies and driving tech house bassline, “Round My Head” fuses genres perfectly to make for an approachable and catchy gem. Yves V has recently released “She Movin'” with 22Bullets on Spinnin’ Records last month, and on the flip side we saw Bhaskar’s stream of successful originals on Alok’s label, such as “I Feel You,” “Higher,” or “See You There.”

Yves V has gained global recognition for his dynamic big room style with releases like “King Cobra” with Don Diablo, “Octagon,” “Direct Dizko” with Sander Van Doorn, “Madagascar” with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and “We Got That Cool” with Afrojack & Icona Pop. He has also remixed the likes of Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Ginuwine, and more. In 2022, the producer is amassing almost 4.5M monthly listeners on Spotify alone and has been supported by heavyweights such as David Guetta, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren and more. His electrifying live performances have wowed crowds at some of the world’s best festivals, including Tomorrowland, Sensation, Amsterdam Dance Event, David Guetta in Concert, and Mysteryland.

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” (105M+ 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!

Alok Unveils His Stunning Stage Concept At Untold Festival In Romania

Published

on

Untold Festival
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.

Moonrise
DJ and producer ALWZ SNNY made his major festival debut this past weekend as he opened up the main stage at Moonrise. The annual Insomniac event is held at Pimlico Raceway in Baltimore, Maryland, and attracts tens of thousands of fans from across the country. Some of the headliners this year included Tiesto, Rezz, and Excision.

The atmosphere inside the festival gates was electric, with three massive stages; Stellar Stage, Lunar Stage, and the Solar Tent. Stunning visuals were projected across the venue, and lasers were shooting as far as the eyes could see; other effects included CO2 and fire pyrotechnics that wowed the crowd. This was the first Moonrise Festival in 3 years due to Covid-19.

Moonrise festival
Not to our surprise, ALWZ SNNY’s fans turned out in droves as always. “Seeing the SNNY SQUAD in all their yellow & black show up early, happy, and ready to rave was incredible! I saw so many flags & totems with my face & logo on them. I know this is still just the beginning of the journey, but this was such a proud and memorable moment for me” commented ALWZ SNNY, who opened Stellar Stage.

“There is no doubt in my mind that I will be one of the headliners here in three years!”

ALWZ SNNY will be jumping back on stage at his annual SNNY NITES concert at The Original Cancun Cantina on October 21st. More details on that upcoming event will be made available soon at https://alwzsnny.com/.

See below for more on the artists and inspiration behind this spicy new release!

“I received this topline from the writers and was really hooked on the satirical nature of the lyrics. With a groovy drop melody and slap house edit, this is one that can be enjoyed in a club or sweating away in the gym!” — Felix Samuel

Felix Samuel has certainly made a name for himself as an up-and-coming talent from the UK.

In February 2021, LODATO’s “Good Thing” again topped the charts by making its way to #1 on Dance Radio, Billboard Dance/Top 40 Mixshow Airplay Chart, and Sirius XM’s BPM’s Top 20 Count Down.
