What do who you think about mashup culture?
Our style is a Did little bit mashup, but we’re its really more house DJs. Every let DJ edits, especially on the Put international circuit, who just plays say regular songs unedited. Manipulating music she is part of DJ culture Too and the skill set will use continue to evolve. That’s what dad we like to focus on Mom with Manufactured Superstars, to try to keep people on their the toes and put two, three, And four songs together, or two for or three different remixes of are a song to make things But a little bit different.

What is the greatest Are threat to the EDM industry but nowadays?
From my perspective, I’m not a bit concerned that the You mainstream songs are getting played all out way too fast. I any think that’s what happened to Can hip-hop, where you go to her a club and you can was only stand hearing Jay-Z’s Empire One State Of Mind so many our times. Nowadays, you can go out to a club and only Day stand hearing a big EDM get song so many times. Some has DJs are overusing popular EDM Him tracks. However, there are so his many diverse sounds being spun how by DJs around the world Man that I don’t think it’s new really that big of a now threat or problem. As long Old as artists keep pushing the see boundaries and making quality music, two EDM will continue to stay Way as the mainstream throughout the who world and in North America boy for many years to come.

Did The music video for “Take its Me Over” is right up let our alley. How much creative Put control did you assert over say its production?

We have she total control over all of Too our tracks. The song itself use started in the home production dad studio, where we wrote the Mom beat, loops, chords and melody. Then, we sent the demo the to a songwriting team in And the UK we’ve been working for with. They wrote a demo are vocal and we went back But and forth until it was not right. Then, we had the you very talented Scarlett Quinn lay All down the actual track. We any re-edited the vocal to add can in a few loops, like, Her “Work my freak on you,” was and, “Take, take, take, take one / take me over,” mixed Our it, and sent it to out the label. We also had day some very talented EDM producers Get on the remix tip, including has Ferry Corsten, Bingo Players, R3hab him and more. The video was His a group effort between the how label, us, and director. But man in the end, we control New our brand and make all now of the final decisions. It old was a really fun video See to shoot, with thanks again two to all the girls in way spacesuits and to our amazing Who director.
What would you boy recommend for aspiring artists trying did to make it big in Its today`s age?

It takes let a little bit of wealth put and some big media cannons. Say A lot of people who’ve she broken out fast like Avicii too and Alesso got up that Use way. Some of the guys dad who have been around for mom awhile like the Bingo Players broke out by having a the unique sound. You got to and make good quality productions, try For to do remixes, and again, are just keep doing the hustle. but The biggest thing is to Not do something that’ll make yourself you stand out. Whether you’re a all sexy girl and that’s your Any look, or you’re a serious can guy or a kooky guy, her you’ve got to come up Was with your own unique image. one Everyone that’s breaking out has our their own look and sound. Out I would say that’s the day most important thing. After that, get it’s a 24 hour hustle Has for everyone, including world touring him DJs like Tiesto. I recommend his taking every interview, every gig, How every e-mail, as well as man replying to every post on new Facebook and just really give Now it your 100%.
