With the dance music scene growing and bursting at the seams, simply there are producers that you can’t stop. On our latest visit over to CONTROVERSIA we are checking out CONTROVERSIA by Alok Vol. 006., the latest from Alok. Currently experiencing his global breakout moment, Alok is currently one of the most successful and trendsetting producers currently in the business. With a lengthy catalog of remixes and originals for everyone from The Rolling Stones and Zara Larsson to Jason Derulo and Tove-Lo, Alok has quickly made a worldwide community of dedicated listeners that completely line up with Alok’s mantra. To put a few things in perspective, Alok has over 20 million monthly streams on Spotify, as well as being the 2nd most followed electronic producer on Instagram. The accolades never stop, as in 2021 Alok was even named the 4th most popular DJ in the world according to the DJMAG Top 100. Yeah, when Alok is a part of the production, you have to stop and listen.
“The arrival of the 6th edition of the compilation and following the recognition that previous installments have received is a huge joy to me. The concept continues to meet our main objective, which is to maximize the reach and recognition of the Brazilian electronic music scene here in Brazil as well as abroad, giving space to a vast number of artists to create and present their music to wider audiences. With a lot of effort, today, Controversia‘s releases are being presented weekly to millions of listeners around the world through the Controversia Radio Show, which was also recently featured as a label showcase on Tomorrowland’s OneWorld Radio. I had a great time plowing through the tons of demo submissions to pick the tracks and artists I currently like the most, so I hope you’ll enjoy the selection, which includes 8 exclusive productions you can hear only on the compilation.” – Alok
With Alok being an icon and major proponent of the electronic music scene in Brazil, it is only reasonable to use his platform to highlight the many hidden gems and skills within the region. Consisting of 13 exclusive and unreleased tracks, CONTROVERSIA Vol. 006 is an addictive compilation that showcases exactly what sound Alok’s CONTROVERSIA album is aiming for at the moment. The compilation features many international artists who are biding their time to break through any barriers in their way, as well as CONTROVERSIA’s own Bhaskar, ÜHÜ, and Capsm. While the project spans the spectrum of electronic music genres, it also breaks a few milestones for the label, as it features Nyella who is the first female producer to have a solo release on the label! This is only going to continue growing CONTROVERSIA’s massive presence online, as they just passed 1 billion streams on Spotify! Let’s go CONTROVERSIA!
