From start to finish, ‘Physical’ (Alok Remix) is music to dance to in a time where it is needed most.
Alok states: “‘Physical’ has been in my playlist since it was released. There is something about it that connects with me from the present and at the same time with something that reminds me of good memories of the past. About the remix, I feel more comfortable accepting invitations to remix when I really like the project, it’s more authentic to produce something you really like. Just like with Meduza’s ‘Piece of Your Heart’. So, when I received this invitation from Dua Lipa it flowed very fast because I was already inspired by the track and listening to music.”
