How did you get the idea to work on the track Move It?
Move It is originally a track from the 90s by Reel 2 Real (Eric Morillo) released on Strictly Rhythm and ran constantly on the radio in my youth in Germany. You couldn’t get past the track at that time and I had it in my ear all the time. The original always brought me positive vibes and at some point I thought, hey why don’t you make a new own version out of it. That’s it!
And how did you start the production in the studio?
I kept the lead sound in its basic form, but worked with different instrumentation. Around the lead sound I then built a completely different groove and synths to create something unique. I must admit, I had a lot of fun working on it. I think you can feel that when you hear the track.
There is now also an AKA AKA remix of your club version – how did the collaboration come about?
Both the AKA AKAs and I are on tour a lot. We met (before the lockdown) a lot at festivals and clubs and we’ve known each other for ages. I showed them the club version and they immediately felt like doing a remix for it. And they did it really well.
The release is available digital on Beatport but also on vinyl – why did you decide for both types?
I spin with CDJs from Pioneer and therefore usually get my tracks digitally. Exceptions confirm the rule and I also get some releases on vinyl for my small collection. With the Move It release we thought from the very beginning also about a vinyl release and with Kontor Records we found a strong partner as label and distributor. For me vinyl is something really special and therefore I am proud that the release is also available for turntables.
What are your plans for the near future?
Due to the Corona crisis, long-term planning is difficult. But every day the anticipation for the gigs and tours grows, as soon as the action starts again. In the meantime I stream weekly on my Twitch Channel, plan releases on my label WANDERLUST, sit in the studio and work on new productions and podcasts.
