Commencing with the all-new ‘Alone’ from Alok himself as the label’s 100th release, alongside the mysteriously masked ALOTT and rank-rising artist Apophis, ‘Alone’ takes hold from the get-go thanks to pitched swathes of synth that shine through the ghost-like delivery of the topline, the release soon twisting and turning into a pumping, deep house take thanks to finger-snapping beats that splinter the synapses to attention.
Following with the fresh release, Kohen lands on the imprint alongside artist Parah Dice to ‘Bring Me To Life’ and with over 600,000 combined monthly listeners between them, the duo captivate with militant precision. Taking a soaring vocal that tells a tale of “I was left to my own devices/ And now I’m in deep”, swelling and weaving inbetween stripped-back depths of synth and then a bass-meets-house bubbling melody that shines out of the speakers, Kohen & Parah Dice add a delectable element to the compilation.
Fans of the imprint may recognise sparkling omissions that have already been shared with fans including the hypnotising ‘Friends’ from Selva with Robert Falcon, aswell as Moodshift’s dynamic ‘All Of You’, artists such as Brazilian duo ALAS, Mister Ruiz and Dropack that add a homegrown vitality and nod to ALOK’s native country and passion to support. Treading further afield, the likes of Spain’s FERGO teases tension on the progressive-leaning ‘Like Home’ that draws the listener in, utilising space and whirring rhythms for a production that is wholly unique, as Rednod and Murat Salman bring the warmth of the East and their Turkish influence to the growing clan of artists on ‘Wicked Game’.
Across 19 amazing and original tracks, ‘CONTROVERSIA by Alok Vol. 003’ presents the labels brightest artists across one exclusive package of releases that will dazzle, delight and unite – make sure you get your hands on the next instalment of the compilation, out now only via CONTROVERSIA!
