Waiting for feels like an eternity, especially if you are about to interview an artist that is growing rapidly to likes of everyone around the world. We painterly wait as the ‘Best DJ in Brazil’ ALOK makes his way to the turntables at Miami’s hottest nightclub, LIV Miami for his debut performance. Already making his mark at Burning Man and with jaw droppings tracks like, BYOB, BOLUMBACK, and FKING Beat that make you want to say whoa! We ask ALOK in an interview what’s its like to be one of most rapidly growing artists in the world and inspiration for his music.
“It's all pretty surreal and overwhelming. Sometimes I pinch myself to check if it's all happening. I have lived and given every breath to music for the last 11 years and now I find myself with the greatest challenges of my career.”
One of ALOK’s biggest tracks All I Want is an original work of art. With its graceful futuristic melody and gorgeous lyrics, the collaboration is a match made in heaven. Had to ask what inspired you to create All I Want?
“A few mixed moments and situations. The track is a collaboration with Liu and Stonefox and we worked on the idea after I brainstormed a little and met them for a studio session.”
The people of LIV Miami were singing and dancing to every song ALOK produced, along with incredible transitions to complete his solid two-hour set. Playing every original track he is known for such as Me and You. Also bringing his friends Stonefox and Iro to join his performance.
“It was an absolute blast. I must say that the crowd in Miami was off the hook and I loved it! Can't wait to be back!!!!“
ALOK is passionate about his career, as he strides to make create more incredible tracks the year looks bright for the talented artist. “Music, music, and Music hahaha. I’m currently working on a few tracks with very talented and renowned artists and singers. The next few months will be a lot of hard work and a lot of music.”
When you hear the name ALOK, what do you want people to remember you as?
“As someone that makes the music that satisfies and comforts their ears. I'm more than happy if that's their association with my name.”
The future looks big and bright for rising DJ as he already gearing up for festival season and having his dream come true. “MainStage at Tomorrowland Belgium. I have just been confirmed to play there so the Ideal festival is actually happening and I am so over the moon about it.”
ALOK has bigger goals and ambitions for his career, “Reaching more people from different parts of the world would be a great vision. I know that I have to keep working hard to keep it real.”
