Hi Flymeon! How are you?
Never been better!
‘Blood on the Dancefloor’ is out now, can you walk us through your creative process when producing this track? Where did you start, and how did you build the different elements together?
I started with an idea in my mind around the lyrics, with a question/answer pattern, ‘Blood’ as the question – ‘wanna see’ as the answer. It sounded Breakbeat to me, so it was quite obvious then how I would structure the track!
Does the track have a specific musical influence?
Yeah, definitely. I guess you can feel The Prodigy influence in the Breakbeat part, and the vocoder vocals come from my Electro influence, like Boys Noize or Daft Punk.
Were there any challenges or obstacles you faced during the production of this track? How did you overcome them?
It wasn’t easy to make sure that the Breakbeat and Techno parts go well together. I had to create huge filters effect to make sure the arrangement made sense!
How did you choose the specific sound elements that you used in this track, such as the drums, synths, and samples? What inspired those choices?
I wanted to have a final result that was really 90s and Rock-influenced, and also stuck to my signature sound, which is a mix of hard-Acid Techno and Metal. So the sounds I chose kind of came naturally.
What was your favorite part of producing this track? Was there a particular sound or element that you’re especially proud of?
Yeah, I really like the Breakbeat part. I think the arrangement of this part with vocals and drums sounds really great.
How do you feel ‘Blood on the Dancefloor’ differs from your previous works?
There’s more room given to the Breakbeat. Usually, I use Breakbeat only in breakdowns in my tracks, but here it really has a central part.
How did you decide on the track’s arrangement and structure? Did you experiment with different variations before settling on the final version?
No, not really. Everything came naturally.
What message or emotion are you hoping to convey to your audience with your latest release?
Making them want to go wild AF in the club!
Lastly, what can fans expect from you in terms of future releases or collaborations? Any exciting projects in the works that you can tease?
There are still 2 tracks to be released as part of my current EP, expect to hear about them in the coming weeks!
