Who or what inspires your music?
We love really well written toplines, we tend to base our songs around that and build a track around good songs that stand on their own. Some artists that we love are Major Lazer, Jack U, The Beatles, John Mayer, Calvin Harris.
Your track Say Goodbye is currently #12 on the Mix 247 EDM countdown. What was the inspiration for that song?
This song was actually inspired by a tough break up. Its always hard to say goodbye, and we think the vibe of the track for this one reflects that as well.
The music video for your track “Sex” with Kris Kross is HOTT, tell us about how the concept for the video came together.
haha, Our good friend Chris Campbell directed the video! He came up with a SEX education idea and we thought it was brilliant. We figured this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do a video like that.
Which artist would you love to collaborate with someday?
R3HAB he’s the man, love everything he does.
What separates you from other artists out there?
We come from a songwriting background so we’re approaching DJing and producing differently than a lot of other electronic artists. We tend to think song first and than track. When we’re performing we wanna put on a show for everyone! We’re too ADD to just DJ and mix songs, we have to be getting the crowd involved, singing, dancing, all of that good stuff.
Craziest thing a fan had done to get your attention?
We recently did a show at LSU, and a bunch of girls got on stage while we were performing and one of them stole Kevi’s phone. We used Find my iPhone to track his phone at a local Pizza Hut. She gave the phone back but definitely got our attention lol.
What is one track/song that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it? (any genre)
Who Says by John Mayer.
What is something people would be surprised to know about each of you?
Matt used to be in a dance pop project called VolHolla! with Season 3 X factor contestant Ce Ce Frey. (Same season as Fifth Harmony, Emblem 3)
Who is the secret celebrity crush each of you have (we all have one)
Matt, Jennifer Aniston
Guiltiest pleasure (we all have one of those too)
Matt would be a rodeo clown.
What are you most excited about for 2016?
We’re really excited for FireFly festival coming up this summer! Gonna be a big show for us! Also excited for Christmas because we’re getting each other really good presents this year.
Please tell everyone where they can follow you.
