Brazil’s fastest-rising stars in electronic music, Dubdogz, chatted with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about joining Alok’s Controveria record label, and they shared their future plans in music.

On being a part of Controversia, they said, “It’s a great pleasure to be able to release a track on CONTROVERSIA. We are thrilled with this opportunity and it is incredible the level he has achieved and how much he did for our Brazilian electronic music industry.” 

“We’ve known Alok for a long time, we go back to the days when he and his twin brother, Bhaskar, had a PsyTrance project called LOGICA and we were RUBACK and also played a Hi Tempo style,” they added.

Each day, they are motivated by their love of music. “It is a personal enjoyment for us to listen and to produce music every day. During the pandemic, what motivated us the most was to be able to see that, even without shows, our music is reaching new people from everywhere. During our online live sets it was great to see more and more people tuned in. But most importantly, even in a small way, we were able to help people go through these difficult times a little bit easier,” they said.

For young and aspiring electronic musicians, they encouraged them to follow their dreams. “The road is bumpy, but if you love what you do and keep working hard, you will get there at some point. The main advice is to never give up and be strong for all adversities that may come your way,” they said.    

On being artists in the digital age, they said, “We feel great about this! It is a lot easier to get your music around the globe these days, reaching people all around the world. For example, roughly 70 percent of our monthly listeners come from outside of Brazil, and this is impressive.”

“You never imagine how far your music can go and this is exciting for us. We even think that makes us more driven to produce and reach more people every day,” they added. 

Regarding their future plans, they said, “We are planning to expand the Dubdogz brand internationally. It is our goal and dream to be recognized even more outside our country and to be able to play in the biggest festivals around the world. We hope to achieve this very soon and we are super excited about it.” 

On their definition of success, Dubdogz said, “Success for us means simply that we have been able to do what we love all the time. There is nothing more fulfilling than waking up everyday knowing you have to do something that pleases you. But also, most importantly, we are able to bring happiness to people around the globe with our music.”
