Alok gives Destiny’s Child a club twist
Alok’s newest release – “The Club is Jumpin'” is his true celebration of electronic dance music’s grand re-opening after the global pandemic. Featuring the very familiar samples taken from Destiny’s Child’s 2000’s hit song “Jumpin’ Jumpin”,” the Brazilian superstar ups the ante with a tech-house-inspired bassline and funky synths to create the elements of an unquestionable dancefloor filler. Alok is no stranger to breaking genre molds, which he proved last month with “Run Into Trouble” with Bastille. “The Club is Jumpin'” is dubbed “future-tech” – Alok’s new funky and innovative mixture of old and new dance sounds that are absolutely sure to light up the dance floors across the globe during the forthcoming festival season, which will see Alok debuting his Summer residency at the famous venue Hï Ibiza, becoming the first Brazilian to ever hold residency within the mega-club’s main room.
“Now that the pandemic seems to be easing up and clubs are re-opened, ‘The Club is Jumpin’ is my party anthem for the summer. I always was a fan of Destiny’s Child’s original when I was younger, and I wanted to take a classic like that and put a fresh electronic spin on it. I hope everyone enjoys it as well as my next releases under the new ‘future-tech’ style” – Alok
