Tell us about “The Things I Do”. How did you both come up with this idea?
We always have a lot of projects going on at the same time. We bounce back & forth. Some click, some don’t. So it’s more a process of completing unfinished idea & always having songs to work.
What Inspired you to make this song?
We had this idea to put a live sax through a guitar amp. We started getting tired of the same sound. The vocals were the complimentary part actually.
The hook to “The Things I Do” is very catchy, and meaning full, how did this get created?
It was from a sample pack. The interesting part was rearranging the vocals so we could tell a story & make it catchy. We just did some tuning and processing.
How did you begin producing electronic dance music?
Both of us were studying music since were kids. So it was a seamless transition as it was becoming more & more popular
Do you have a favorite VST plugin or instrument to use?
Favorite VST has to be Ableton’s Spectrum. Simple but can tell a lot you may not hear. Favorite instrument has to be the piano. It was the first instrument for both of us.
What are your current projects?
Getting down ideas & finishing the ones we feel people would love. We have already 3 finished projects. We’ll see if we are going to release them or release a new one .
What can we expect from you next year?
More songs, more collabs.
