Alok Harrison Tell Me Why – Dance music innovator Alok has collaborated with UK artist Harrison on Swedish House Mafia-inspired new single ‘Tell Me Why’, out now via Alok’s own CONTROVERSIA imprint.
Speaking about the track, Alok explains: “I’m so glad and honored to bring this classic from Supermode to my label CONTROVERSIA. The imprint recently launched and is already hosting beautiful tracks, showing authenticity and freedom in the productions and music released. It was amazing doing this collab with Harrison as we were able to explore both our own music elements and common taste for this classy dance song.”
Following on from the rousing ‘Vale Vale’, Alok’s latest offering ‘Tell Me Why’ draws inspiration from the Supermode track of the same name that was famously remixed by Swedish House Mafia luminaries, Axwell and Steve Angello. Sampling Bronski Beat’s iconic 80s classic ‘Smalltown Boy’, Alok adds one of his trademark drops to masterful effect and Harrison expertly adds a layer of sheen.
“I grew up listening to the Supermode version of ‘Tell Me Why’ on MTV,” Harrison explains. “This was my favourite dance song so when I made this version I knew it was going to be awesome as its recognisable.”
One of the hardest working producers on the electronic circuit, Alok brings his scintillating modern style to ‘Tell Me Why’ – delivering a track destined to tear up dancefloors across the world.
