“The Club is Jumpin’,” Alok‘s latest release, is a true celebration of electronic dance music’s grand re-opening following the global pandemic. Using samples from Destiny’s Child’s hit song “Jumpin’ Jumpin'” from the 2000s, 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 boundaries, as evidenced by his collaboration with Bastille on “Run Into Trouble” last month. “The Club is Jumpin'” has been dubbed “future-tech” – Alok’s new funky and innovative blend of old and new dance sounds that are sure to light up dance floors around the world during the upcoming festival season, which will see Alok debut his Summer residency at the famous venue H Ibiza, becoming the first Brazilian to hold residency within the mega-main club’s 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
