We got the chance to interview the the up & coming artists:
What is EDM/Dance Music? How would you define it?
EDM is Electronic Dance Music, or better energetic dance music. But is not really our genre, even if we like to listen to different kind of music.
When and how did you two start collaborating? Can you tell us about the origins?
We met on Facebook, after few comments on some posts we started talking and we never stopped. Our passions and life goals were so similar so basically we found each other! After some months we started working together also, we made our first trip and for three years now we had so many amazing experiences together that our bond became very special and strong.
What do you love about creating music?
The moment we love most is when we're in the studio starting a new track. We love the whole process, especially the beginning, because we don't know what will be out. It's funny then when we let our friends and families listen to the track and they give us their opinions.
What's your inspiration?
Hard to say, there are so many for both of us. We don't know how to chose one. There are many artists that inspire us, some of them are, Paul Kalkbrenner, Odesza, Florence and The Machine, Coldplay, The XX, and many others.
Where can readers go to find out more about you?
On our socials or website, but there are many articles and interviews with few curiosity about us on google too!
What do you love most about performing at festivals?
The big stage and the crowd! It's always good to have the possibility of performing in festival and being listened to many people.
What festivals are you performing in this summer? Where can fans see you perform live?
We'll announce our tour soon. About festivals we will be in Budapest, Switzerland and a great one this July, with artists like Nina Kraviz, Adam Bayer, Ofenbach and many more.
How would you sum up your music in two words?
Emotional and intense.
What feelings do you associate with your music?
