Alok Achkar Peres Petrillo is a Brazilian DJ and record producer. He is best known for his worldwide hit song “Hear Me Now”. Alok is managed by John Shahidi of Shots Studios.It didn’t take long for Alok — son of the founders of Universo Paralello, a dance festival set in the Brazilian mountains 17 years ago — to make a super-sized splash in his home country back in 2014.
His mix of big groovy basslines and accessible saccharine vocals are what connected immediately with a nation with samba rhythms pumping though its veins, more so than standard big-room EDM fare, and almost overnight he became a local star.
Last year saw him tour Asia, get signed to Spinnin’ and taken on by William Morris management, while into 2017 he’s continued to claim a slew of top European EDM festival scalps including Tomorrowland and Creamfields.
