Alok Achkar Peres Petrillo (Portuguese pronunciation: [/a'lɔki/]; born August 26, 1991) is a Brazilian musician, DJ, record producer[1] and the most popular character in Garena Free Fire.[2] He is known for his single "Hear Me Now".[3] In 2020, Alok was ranked the 5th best DJ in the world by DJ Mag, being the highest position occupied by a Brazilian.[4]

Alok has become one of the most prominent icons in the Brazilian electronic scene, with honors and awards, such as "Best DJ in Brazil" by House Mag in 2014 and 2015,[5] and being the only Brazilian in the top 25 in the world the following year by DJ Mag magazine.[6] In 2017, he was elected by Forbes Brasil as a of the most influential people under the age of 30 in the country.[7]  

Biography

Petrillo was born in Goiânia, Brazil, the son of DJs, Swarup and Ekanta, who are also pioneers of psytrance in the country and creators of the Universo Paralello, electronic music festival in Bahia.[8] Alok is of Italian, Portuguese and Lebanese descent.

His name came after his parents travelled to India, where they met with spiritual guru Osho, who indicated that the boy should be called Alok, which in the Sanskrit language means "light".[9][10]

Career

He began his career at the age of 12 along with his fraternal twin brother Bhaskar Petrillo.[11] At age 19 he pursued a solo career, becoming one of the most prominent icons in the Brazilian electronic scene, with honors and awards, such as; "Best DJ in Brazil" awarded by House Mag for two consecutive times (in the years 2014 and 2015)[12] and the only Brazilian in the top 25 world DJ ranking by DJ Magazine in 2016.[13]

At age 10 he began to learn to play, playing music with his fraternal twin brother Bhaskar.[14] In 2004, he and his brother attended the rehearsal studio of their father Swarup's band, playing drums. According to Ekanta, they were interested in how the remixes were made and with the help of DJ's Zumbi and Pedrão, family friends, they taught the brothers to mix the songs, and each one learned a specialty, one on the keyboard and the other on the guitar. Shortly thereafter, Dick Trevor installed the Logic Pro music editing program on Swarup's computer, bringing the brothers closer to producing music.[8]

He and his brother attended the presentations that their parents made at parties psy trance, soon creating the project Logica.[8][15]

Petrillo is also the founder of UP Club Records, a record label specializing in discovering new inborn talent in electronic music.[16]

On November 2019 Alok Petrillo Became a character of Garena Free Fire under his name Alok and Song released Vale Vale with Zafrir.[citation needed]
