Spilling the beans on his latest release "1Night" ft. Matt Booth (which is super catchy, by the way), we also get treated to a selection of electronic artist sergioisdead's top tune picks - in a specially curated Spotify playlist.
It usually feels like a puzzle and my favorite part is the end (listening back), once everything’s been figured out.
Who or what influences you musically? Do you find you get inspired by lots of different genres and styles?
I just go in waves and phases, like everybody else. I’m usually never listening to the genre of what I’m working on at the moment. Every few weeks I’ll go on Spotify and peek around different playlists. It’s always one song that will give me a whole new idea or direction.
Talk us through your new single “1Night” with Matt Booth… where did the first ideas come from? Did you enjoy working with Matt for it?
Matt is someone that I’ve known for over ten years. His older brother used to work with my Mom when we were kids. Because of that connection, we used to talk on AIM and in recent years we reconnected as he came into his own as a singer. We’ve been sending ideas back and forth for a while, and one day he sent the “1Night” vocal idea but needed new music underneath. I built up a new track for it, did some tweaking, and here we are.
How have the reactions to the track been so far?
It’s super new, but everything has been really positive. I’m excited to see where it goes.
How do you want your music to make people feel?
Hopefully they feel something, whether it’s really positive or negative. Worst case scenario would be indifference!
What are your main focuses going to be throughout 2018?
Releasing more singles featuring vocalists and writing/producing for artists. I’m happiest when I can release music under myself, but also helping others with their goals. I’ve been very fortunate, so I can’t ask for much.
