Exclusive interview: New Dance Music Friday featuring Mesto
Jul 14, 2017
We proudly present the New Dance Music Friday feature, your weekly update on all newly released dance tracks, brought together on one amazing Spotify playlist. Featured this week (among many others): Mesto! He released his new single ‘Chances’ this week, and provides the list with some musical tips, and tells all about it in this exclusive interview.
Hey, you just released your new track ‘Chances’ featuring Brielle Von Hugel. How did you create this?
"It was a fun process making this track. I started with the break chords and from there I made the drop. First, the drop was without the top lead, but I felt like there was missing something. One day later, while the whole idea of the track was already built, I had this melody in my head which wasn't getting out of my head. So, I ran upstairs to my 'Bedroom Studio' and added this melody to the track I made! Luckily, it sounded really nice!"
What does this record say about your musical evolution as an artist?
"This is actually my first single with vocals on it. Normally I already have a vocal, and start working from there, but now I had a track which needed vocals. So I sent the instrumental version to Brielle Von Hugel, and she started writing right away! Her voice is amazing and it turned out very cool."
The track is featured on Spinnin’s New Dance Music Friday playlist. How important is Spotify to you?
"That's great! Thanks all. I think Spotify is growing so fast and I love to use it myself as well. Recently, they also added my last record 'BRUH', a collab with Curbi, to their popular Fresh Electronic playlist! That was amazing and I'm so thankful for all the support."
