Brazilian born DJ, Alok Petrillo, has been announced as one of the Top DJs in the world coming in at #25 in the annual DJ Mag Top 100 DJs, surpassing EDM veterans like Deadmau5, Paul van Dyk and Martin Solveig.
Last year, he shot straight into the Top 100 poll at No.44, surprising for any new name but especially an unknown. Yet considering Alok has been honing his art since the age of 17, the seemingly overnight success is no surprise.
“This year I definitely had a taste of what it is like to have your music travelling through the corners of the world,” Alok says. “In addition to that, I was blessed enough to play at several major festivals, and got signed to one of the biggest global labels [Spinnin’]. Altogether, these happenings made my 2016 a very ‘lucid dream’ so far.”
This November Olmeca Switches On The Night with DJ Alok on 25th November at Shimmy Beach Club, Cape Town.
