Just when we thought we’d had enough of Jackson 5 ‘I Want You Back’ flips (except our own one of course), NTRL RBLS come with a completely new take on the classic. If you’re into your “mid tempo future trap infused soul” (we made this name up but it’s dope right) you’re gonna love this. - DIXON BROTHERS


Still working on that hot first release.



NTRL RBLS is a rising DJ duo and collaborative project, consisting of music artists Doranato and Baallet.  Soulful, wavy, and electric, Doranato and Baallet combine their similar musical influences with their unique perspectives to bring a twist to popular sounds. With an urban pop/electronic soul music style, this pair is ready to challenge today’s top hits.

Baallet (Elliot James) is a British musician most notable for being the drummer and founding member of rock band Hey Monday, who toured the world with Fall Out Boy, 50 Cent, All American Rejects, and All Time Low. He is now a successful songwriter and owns a music publishing and production company, Fever Mint. His accolades include an RIAA certified platinum plaque for his work on the vinyl release of Maroon 5’s Songs About Jane and an RIAA gold plaque for the release of Nickelodeon’s Best of Nick Toons.  As a part of NTRL RBLS, Baallet feels that “when you’re partnered with someone like Doranato, who can anticipate your next move or next spin, you can become fearlessly creative.

We had amazing rapport right off the bat, and in time discovered a shared interest and desire to make a certain sound of music. It was never a question whether we would do RBLS or not, it was really, when.”  Doranato and Baallet are fully ready to evolve the world of DJ music with NTRL RBLS. With vastly different backgrounds, they are perfect complements who challenge each other to unlock revolutionizing sounds. While initially on very different life paths, these two have united their talents in a shared desire to create something unheard of.

Doranato (Alex Cotraviwat) is not only a music DJ, but also the founder and CEO of Milky Agency, a Los Angeles based firm that specializes in creative marketing, branding and business development. Although he rose to fame in the fashion industry with his first clothing brand Kallusive, he has since advised and invested in an array of fields, including the automotive, food, skin care, and real estate industries. Still doing what he knows best, he is now revolutionizing fashion with a street luxe brand of the same name as his DJ stint - NTRL RBLS. 

Doranato shared that meeting Baallet “was like meeting that missing link or that spark that I needed to get back in the game...I knew we would come together to create and find the sound to represent NTRL RBLS. When we get in the studio cookin’, magic happens.” As a jack of all trades with a strong vision for everything he does, Doranato will transform the music scene with NTRL RBLS. He says, “NTRL RBLS is for those who are grown against the grain, and when we fuse our musical elements together, we capture that exact essence.”
