They’re great guys! Who are the legends on your bucket list to collaborate with? Also, tour life is exciting in general, travelling and meeting friends on the road. Hey Steff – thank you for taking your time for this interview! That kept me going! How was your experience collaborating with 71 Digits? Everybody switched from airplane seats to studio seats, so there is so much music being made right now, it’s crazy! I miss that as well. How have you kept inspired during 2020? In general I can get ideas for records from anywhere. What do you have in store release wise and are there any other exciting projects on the horizon?
18 December, I drop a collab with my buddy Tony Junior on Spinnin, it’s a remake of Belinda Carlisle’s “Live your life be Free”. In January, I drop a collab with Brieuc, called “Closer”. It was hard for everybody involved in our scene. Love both records, even though they are very different! When they and Spinnin mentioned they were thinking about a rework, I wanted to jump on! That is different every time. I don’t have a bucketlist really. Finally, do you have a quick message to your fans? Anyway, once the idea is there, it’s a matter of locking yourself up in the studio and turning the idea into a production. I guess, usually I work from a melody or vocal idea and build around it. Follow us on socials Can you tell us the driving forces behind your revival of ‘Say Say Say’? I used to work with the Hi_Tack boys many years ago and we’re mates. I worked on a Steff Da Campo Remix and a more radio driven version with the 71 Digits crew. However, it was great having some more time to do studio work and for my family. What’s your usual process when making a record? Sometimes, I hear a sample that inspires me, sometimes I get a rough demo from a friend and we finish it together, sometimes it’s a melody that just pops into my head in the shower. It’s great to have a first chat with you. I hope 2021 will see us all back on the dancefloors all over the world! Have you spent a lot of time in the studio during lockdown?
Yes, but the challenge is not really making the music, but not being able to test it out in the clubs and finding release dates once they are done. I had two great years, but I know I have a long way to go, so I am grateful for any great talent that wants to work with me! The process was remote, due to Covid, so not as personal as it normally is 9and with less Gin Tonics), but with a lot of back and forth bouncing, I think we managed to get something great done! Appreciate what you still have, stay healthy and see you on the dancefloor in 2021! I miss performing and seeing how my music gives people a great time.
