Novado’s impressive catalogue of DJing performances and his own productions is something special. He has taken the Dance music industry by storm over the last few years and is continuing to grow at a lightning pace. We know a lot about him, but we always want to know more, so we caught up with him to learn more about what he does in the studio and how he makes his magical productions come to life!
1 – Were you self-taught?
For the most part, yes. After my first few years of learning production on my own I took a production course at AP Academy in Stockholm. I also made friends with one of the teachers there who gave me private classes for a while and let me sit with him in the studio while he mixed tracks, which helped a lot.
2 – How did you develop your music production skills and talents?
A lot of it honestly came from just putting a lot of time into it. Especially in the first years when I got started it wasn’t uncommon for me to spend anywhere between 10-16 hours a day on producing! When you spend so much time on something you’ll naturally develop your skills.
3 – Where do you get your inspiration from when producing new music?
I go out a lot and also play a lot of gigs myself. My main inspiration comes from moments during a night out where the music really grabs your attention and cuts through the haze, so to speak. You can feel when a vibe like that is created on the dance floor and things go from just being surface-level fun to having a deeper side to them.
4 – What’s the typical process you go through when working on a new tune?
I will typically start with a melody or by writing a chord progression, that’s usually where my inspiration comes from!
5 – Do you have a specific method of production you stick to?
The process I try to follow is based on building a track starting with the creative parts and moving down to the technical parts from there.
6 – When you are producing, what are your go-to plugins and equipment?
When it comes to processing plugins, I use Logic’s internal stuff and the Waves series for the main part. I do use other third party plugins too; I love the FabFilter EQ and their distortion plugin Saturn. I use the Valhalla reverb all the time too.
I’ve got a pretty simple setup, with a pair of Yamaha HS-8 monitors and an AKAI midi keyboard. It all really happens in the box!
7 – What’s your favourite synth?
Right now it’s Serum by Xfer. I use Spire by Reveal Sound a lot too.
9 – Do you have a favourite plugin for your mixdowns and masters?
That would be the FabFilter EQ, I use it all the time!
10 – What plugins/equipment is on your master channel?
When I master my own tracks it’s mainly just a question of pushing up the volume of the track. For that purpose, I think AOM’s Invisible Limiter is amazing. I’ll typically do some light compression too, using the SSL compressor from Waves. For other purposes I think it makes more sense to do changes in the mix if you are mastering your own tracks.
11 – How long does it usually take you to complete a new track?
It really depends on the track. Typically the best tracks come together very naturally though, and it goes quicker. It could be a matter of 3-4 days, or up to a month!
12 – Which traits do you think make an excellent producer?
Habit (or consistency) and creativity.
13 – Finally, what can we expect in terms of new music from Novado?
It will be a surprise!

Half an Orange Open Up About New EP ‘Mostly We Grow PT. 2’ In Interview
Half an Orange return with something fresh! As the EP title suggests, ‘Mostly We Grow’ underlines the difficult maturity stage of life. Besides their usual acoustics and electronic music elements, these artists tell personal stories through lyrics, which give it a special touch to the entire production. In this new interview, they opened up about their ‘Mostly We Grow’ project, and its second part, which steps ahead of its listeners’ expectations.
1 – Your debut EP reached 5 million streams on Spotify. Do you expect to obtain the same results with this new project?
Both parts of ‘Mostly We Grow’ make up one EP. Originally, we planned on releasing ‘Mostly We Grow’ altogether. However, when esport star Ninja reached out to help us release the debut single off the EP, “Old Friends”, we had to change our strategy. Ninja had been playing our music on his channel and wanted to help us promote our new songs by starring in a Half an Orange music video. It was a massive opportunity we didn’t want to pass on. There was only one problem, the full EP wasn’t ready to be released and Ninja’s schedule required the music video be done soon. We decided to release the EP in two parts in order to give us time to finish the second half of the EP while the first half was being released.
It ended up being the right call. The debut single off ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 1’, “Old Friends”, was our most successful song to date. The music video, uploaded to Ninja’s YouTube channel, was viewed over 2 million times. Our socials and streaming numbers all exploded. In fact, our Instagram following quadrupled in a single day. We won numerous film festivals across the country (including markets like LA and New York) for creating arguably the first and biggest music videos to star an esport athlete. It was an absolute blast working with Ninja. This momentum helped promote ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 1’ and continued through ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 2’.
We expect our numbers to keep growing with ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 2’. The release of ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 2’ was our highest stream total for a single day. Spotify has been a huge supporter of ours. Their playlists are constantly helping new people to discover our music. Rocket League is playing one of the singles off ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 2’, “Mark Twain”, whenever someone turns on the game. The game has such a massive userbase that our song will be heard 5 million times per day inside Rocket League. We’ll be working with Sirius XM and Monstercat to host the weekly radio show “Call of the Wild” on Sirius XM channel 52. Live Nation partnered with us to release the first-ever animated DJ residency which gets music from ‘Mostly We Grow’ in front of venues across the country.
Even more important than numbers, our fans seem to love the EP ‘Mostly We Grow’. We receive daily messages from fans saying how they use the EP to keep them sane and happy whenever they’ve had a tough day. People are even getting tattoos of their favorite song lyrics off the EP. It has been incredibly touching to see the community’s response to our songs and stories.
2 – What are the similarities and differences between ‘Mostly We Grow PT. 1’ and ‘PT. 2’?
The songs on ‘Mostly We Grow’ revolve around the challenges and realities that hit you while growing up. “Old Friends” is about losing loved ones as you get older. “Sunscreen” is about the friends who helped protect you as life throws more troubling times your way. Our song “Blink 182” is us saying we wish we could sit around and listen to Blink 182 songs all day instead of moving on to new phases of our lives. Growing up is scary and often lonely. It’s important to grow and learn as a person but the idea of your life-changing is still terrifying.
Because the EP is about growth, we gave ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 1’ and ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 2’ different album covers. In ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 1’ we (as our astronauts) are holding a flower that is small and struggling to live. In ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 2’ the album cover is the same, but the flower is now blooming and fully grown. We wanted the album cover and our songs to always show hope that you’ll be ok despite how much life is changing around you.
3 – Do you have a favorite song from this new release? If so, what makes it special?
One of our favorite songs off ‘Mostly We Grow Pt 2’ is “Mark Twain”.
“I wrote this song the afternoon I found out my dad had cancer. He and I went to a river near our house to sit down and take in the information he had been given from the doctor. While we were sitting near the water, he told me he felt like he was already dead. When I got home I found a bunch of dark and creepy sounds and began writing a song about how it would feel to already be dead. The song’s title, “Mark Twain”, comes from the author. In his book, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, his characters watch and attend their own funeral, seeing what it would be like to be dead.” – Michael from Half an Orange
4 – How do you approach the songwriting process?
We have a rule that at least one of us has to write for one hour a day. Normally we write for a much longer time, but the one-hour rule ensures we never miss a day. Sometimes we write together. Sometimes we write separately. Writing is like therapy for us so normally we write whatever we are feeling. When a close friend passes away, we write about it. When we have had a hard day, we write up it. Writing about what we’re dealing with gives us a sense of calmness and closure.
Our first stages of the writing process are on piano or guitar. We’re focusing on finding lyrics and composition. We try and keep it as organic as possible by writing the lyrics on paper and avoiding the computer or our phones. Before releasing music as Half an Orange, we wrote folk music together so writing organically is more comfortable to us.
For lyrics, the goal is to be honest and share a story that has happened to us. We want the listener to feel like they’ve been transported somewhere with us. Hopefully, they can relate to the story and emotions in the song.
After getting the composition and lyrics of the song down we both work in our studio to begin production. We record ourselves playing instruments and singing. During the process, we are trying to get the emotion and feel of the song down. We brainstorm different ideas and experiment with all kinds of instruments, melodies, synths, and samples. Most of our songs are acoustic or piano-based, but it’s not uncommon for us to spend more time on the percussion. We try and get the majority of the recording and playing of the song done together in the studio over a couple of days. The whole process from writing, composing, and producing takes about 2 weeks. We then spend another 2-4 weeks polishing the song and crafting the mix.
5 – How long did it take you to produce this new material?
We are heavily involved with every step in our song’s life cycle. It takes about a month for us to create a song. Another 1-3 months is spent on the music video for the song. We animated the music videos for “Buzz Lightyear” and “End of the Moon” ourselves. Both music videos took 2-4 months to make. “Old Friends” with “Ninja” was a 5-6 month project. After the song and music video are made we spend another month working on the release strategy with our label. ‘Mostly We Grow’ (parts 1 and 2) took over a year to put together. It was a fantastic journey that taught us a lot about ourselves.
“When Andrew and I were in the studio for “Mark Twain” I was singing it in my ‘normal’ voice. He pushed back and said it felt weird having a song about being dead but sounding like I was alive. We experimented with ways for me to sing in a style that let the listener know I wasn’t my normal self. The high creepy vocals were developed that day in the studio and are actually me singing without auto-tune. It took us forever to get the vocals down and singing in that style was really taxing on my vocal cords. The song’s subject matter made singing it over and over again emotionally draining.” – Michael from Half an Orange
7 – Who would you love to see remixing your new tracks?
WRLD remixed our song “Buzz Lightyear” and it was fantastic. The first song we ever released as Half an Orange was remixed by Holmsey. We’d love to have both of them hop on for another remix. Producers like Tokyo Machine, Tails, InukShuk, and Ephixa would also be awesome in re-creating our songs and stories through a remix.
8 – Are you planning to release a music video anytime soon?
There mostly likely won’t be any more music videos for ‘Mostly We Grow’. Please enjoy the current music videos for ‘Mostly We Grow’: “Buzz Lightyear”, “Old Friends”, “Given Up”, and “End of the Moon”. We made really fun visualizers for Blink 182 and Sunscreen. With Live Nation and Monstercat, we are releasing the first-ever animated DJ residency. It’s an hour of fully animated video content using songs from ‘Mostly We Grow’. We premiered an early access version of the show at Live Nation venue Bogart’s in Cincinnati Ohio and are preparing more shows for it.
9 – Last question, will there be a third part of ‘Mostly We Grow’ in 2020?
If fans keep getting tattoos of ‘Mostly We Grow’ Pt 1 and Pt 2 we’ll probably have to.

Exclusive Interview: Apostola Talks New EP ‘5minsfame’, Lyric Writing & More
With top-notch vocals and meaningful lyrics, Apostola is ready to showcase her talent to the world. Her latest project comes in the form of a 4-track EP titled ‘5minsfame’. Over time, songs have been used to portray a critique of society. In this case, the European singer-songwriter raises awareness as she crafts her narratives and tells relatable stories that revolve around fame, betrayal, and romantic heartbreak. Learn more below.
1 – Why is your new EP titled ‘5minsfame’?
I think when people hear the title, they must automatically assume that it implies that I am seeking my own ‘5 minutes of fame’ – but it is actually referring to the subject matter in the first track. That particular song is the most lyrically serious track on the EP and deals with a pertinent issue in society today; the fact that almost everyone is trying to become famous, gain attention or make a fortune by ‘going viral’, often with no valid reason. The rise in social media and our dependence and obsession with technology has created generations that do not know what it means to live in a world where you are not always accessible and where you do not have to reveal your every emotion, meal or location to everyone – all the time. For me, it is a deeply sad song. I wrote it after I read several stories of young people injuring or killing themselves in the pursuit of fame and attention because they felt they needed to do something very extreme to get noticed.
2 – Tell us about the recording process.
The hardest part was narrowing down all the songs I have to just four tracks, and I changed my mind a few times because every track is special to me for some reason or another and it felt like having to pick a favorite ‘child’! We wanted to get a good balance of tracks, but also to select those where the lyrics would resonate with listeners as I consider myself equally a singer and songwriter, so the lyrics are very important for me. In regard to the recording process, I was fortunate to have a very talented producer who works from state-of-the-art, new facilities and I was the first artist to record there when they opened, so that felt symbolic for me too (new studio, new EP, new beginnings!). I have to confess I have a weakness… I struggle to get the harmonies right because I can’t get the original vocal melody out of my head, so that was the most time-consuming part for me. Other than that, it was smooth sailing and a lot of fun and I can’t wait to get back into the studio again!
3 – Did you collaborate with other musicians?
My producer is actually a member of four, popular local bands and is an extremely talented musician who plays various instruments and sings himself. As such, we didn’t need to bring further musicians in as he had it covered! We collaborated very well together as we each have different strengths and perspectives but at the same time, we were (mostly!) on the same page regarding the direction of the tracks.
4 – Who have been your main influences for this EP?
I can’t say that I had any particular influences for the EP tracks, but I have other female artists who I greatly admire and who are constantly a source of inspiration for me in general: Madonna; Tori Amos; Lady Gaga; Pink; Katy Perry; Natasha Bedingfield; Alanis Morissette, Nelly Furtado; Lisa Stansfield; Jessie J; Christina Aguilera; Anastacia; Tracy Chapman; Bjork; Annie Lennox; Dina Carrol; Belinda Carlisle; Gwen Stefani; Fergie… and many more! Most of them write their own tracks, and they are all so unique in their own inimitable way.
5 – What’s your favorite song off ‘5minsfame’? What makes it so special?
My favorite is track 2 – ‘Parade’. I think this is because it is the first track we chose to record, and I feel that this was my best vocal delivery on the EP. I also love the intro as the first line ‘hear the drums in the distance, hear them marching far away’ doesn’t indicate that it is a break-up track. And I love the beat! It was exactly how I envisaged it. I guess that someone might wonder why it ended up being track 3! Well, the first track has the most powerful message and I wanted to lead with that because I feel it is so important. The second track is probably the most ‘commercial’ and it didn’t feel like ‘Parade’ would fit there as I think it is more indie in its format.
6 – Do you believe people can relate to your lyrics?
Yes, I think so. Whilst I believe the lyrics give a story or message, they are not over-complicated and so they are easy to understand and to feel. I am actually a bit surprised that the lyrics of ‘5 Minutes of Fame’ have not resonated more with people, but then I realized the irony; that people cannot hear the message because they are actually living that scenario and perhaps don’t recognize our society through the lyrics – it’s too close to the bone! All the tracks I write are pretty self-explanatory – there are no hidden messages or weird phrases so I hope that people will feel that I am an artist who writes about relatable issues.
The first track ‘5 Minutes of Fame’ is more a plea than a dedication; a plea to all young people who are feeling the pressure to be fully invested in their social media pages and to live their lives to please their ‘followers’ – and even friends and family. I would urge them not to seek this attention and validation from strangers – they don’t need it! And it will eat them up in the end. Of course, it is not their fault as they do not know any different. I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up without all this technology and exposure, and that I got to live my childhood and teenage years in the ‘real world’ rather than a virtual one. This is a blessing that today’s youth will never be able to enjoy.
Tracks 2 and 3 – ‘I Won’t Wait for You’ and ‘Parade’ are polar opposites in that the first one is a strong female anthem and the latter is heartache. Whilst I don’t personally dedicate them to anyone, I think they will resonate with some people for their content. And finally, the sweet ‘My Sanity’ is dedicated to all the good, kind, supportive people out there who are someone’s rock, and to my own personal rock, who knows who he is!
8 – What would you say is the main difference between this EP and your past projects?
As an independent artist, it is very difficult to record properly if you do not have a good home studio or the funds to record at a professional studio. Whilst my previous EP and album were done in studios and are all my own original music, the quality of the recording wasn’t where it should have been, and that was to my detriment. As such, I pulled those tracks (confined to the vaults!) but hope that I can re-record them in the future. In regard to content matter, I can personally hear growth in this new EP, which is natural considering that I am that much older and wiser now and my priorities and views have shifted. I have been told by my nearest and dearest that my content matter is getting darker (they have heard a lot of my other tracks and a lot of them are indeed a bit depressing!), but again, this is because I see the world differently now. That is why we included the final track ‘My Sanity’ to the EP because the first three songs were not ‘happy’. ‘My Sanity’ is the sweet and positive ending to the more painful subject matter!
9 – What are your plans for 2020?
At the moment my actions are two-fold; promoting the EP and getting it as much exposure as possible in this saturated industry and looking ahead for the next releases. I have already started remixing the EP which I hope will be out in early 2020, and at the same time, I am narrowing down the tracks for the next EP or album (not sure at this stage whether to stick with EPs or to go for the album!). If we are going, to be honest, the process for independent artists is much longer than it is for signed artists and it is a marathon, not a sprint. As such, my expectations are realistic in regard to how much exposure I can gain and how long this will take.
10 – Lastly, what’s the secret behind you singing so well?
Thank you for the compliment! Everyone has a different opinion of what makes a good voice so it very much in the ear of the listener. I haven’t taken any singing lessons – the practice has been a lifetime of singing for the love it, but I suppose that subconsciously, listening to certain female artists over the years has probably influenced it somewhat as I can impersonate a handful of other singers quite well, which is my party trick! I do feel though that this EP hasn’t showcased my full vocal range so I will remedy this on the next release in 2020!
I would also like to thank you for the interview and for giving independent and emerging artists a platform and exposure – every little help and every snowball starts with just a few snowflakes!

Exclusive Interview: KOPPS Discuss New Song “Get Juicy” + Upcoming EP
KOPPS‘ good sense of humor is as likable as their music. Sure enough, they can convince thousands of curious listeners with their eccentricities and original ideas. Hailing from Rochester, NY, these artists have caught my attention with their newest track, “Get Juicy”. Check out our exclusive interview with the band in order to get first-hand details about an upcoming EP, and this sex-posi song.
1 – Can you tell us the story behind your new single “Get Juicy”? How did the idea come up?
We sometimes come up with a word or phrase as a joke and it later becomes a song. That’s kind of what happened with “Get Juicy”. Kyle brought the phrase to a writing session and we already had a track started without a concept, and with all the wet and farty production sounds happening, we knew it was going to be a match.
2 – How did you start picking what visuals will go on the cover art?
We could have easily gone with the female/hypersexual/juicy innuendo but then had a thought about using a hairy dude to get this across instead. “Juicy” to us represents any of the major bodily fluids and actual drinkable beverages, so why discriminate? In this art, we combine the idea of pee with the idea of blue raspberry fruit punch, and we think it gets across nicely.
We are launching a couple of pieces of CONTENT for it, I will say that… 😉
4 – Is blending elements of pop, rock and electronic music or is this sound part of your signature style?
I think we all have a very different and individually eclectic sense of taste and this comes through in our writing and ends up landing at “Our sound.” We have written songs and said to each other ok this is cool but it’s not really a KOPPS song. It’s something we know when we hear it, and sonically for it to be “US” enough… things need to be interesting.
5 – When will you release your next EP?
Likely spring or summer 2020!
6 – How different is this upcoming project from your debut EP ‘Fuck Jams’ (2012)?
I would say its quite different but also similar. We have grown production-wise from a grittier sound to something a hair more polished. We have moved from very alternative-dance to more of an alt-pop sphere, which is fine because we all love pop music to some degree. Back in the “fuck jams” days, I was also finding my footing as far as my sound in this project as a vocalist, which is reflected in some songs sounding vastly different from others. My voice is pretty versatile and we were playing with that a lot back then. I started off as a youngster really focusing on soul music, but always loved 90s dance and a ton of Rock too, and I feel like as with everything else about our sound, the way I vocalize combines those elements. In the last 3-4 years, I think I have really solidified what I want to sound like vocally for KOPPS.
7 – Do you feel fans or the music industry put too much pressure on your creativity?
I will never be upset with FANS for wanting to be engaged with what we are making. From day 1 our stuff has been on the highly creative end visually and sonically, so it’s always a fun challenge to see wtf we will come up with next. The most high-pressure thing to me is the internet and Instagram, feeling like you need to churn out low-quality content constantly to keep your audience engaged. It doesn’t give space sometimes to sit with creative thoughts and really work on something for a long time that could be great. I think we struggle with that at times and the pace of everything.
8 – If you could collaborate with one artist, who would it be?
9 – Finally, what would you say it’s your major goal within your music career?
We would like to inspire freedom, empowerment, and escapism in our fans. I want to be a 5-star entertainer really and captivate people who come to shows…I want to eventually play to huge audiences consistently and feel the energy exchange. It is a literal drug for everyone involved.

Interview | Questions & Answers With Ginny Luke
In this exclusive interview, electronic violinist and singer Ginny Luke tells us about her passion for music, personal preferences, and her collaborative track with Taylor Graves, called “Take You On A Trip”. With an incredible voice and the right violin technique, she always takes her songs to the next level. Find out more below.
1 — First of all, what do you love about violins?
The violin is so rich in its history and I think it is the most beautiful instrument besides the cello. I find it so interesting how differently the violin was played throughout history – from the original ‘viol da gamba’ to the famous Stradivarius violins, to Middle Eastern gypsy music, country fiddle players in Europe and early America, and now to the electric violin, which can be played for every style. I think it is one of the most stylistically versatile instruments.
2 — What would your destiny have been had if you were not born in a musical family?
Wow, I don’t know, but I probably wouldn’t have practiced violin 8 hours a day! I would probably be an actor or dancer, something still in the arts. Maybe fashion designer – I had a clothing line as a child called GinderZ Fashions.
Oooh this is a good question. I don’t smoke and I try to stay super hydrated, especially on tour. On tour, I workout every day, I steam, I drink tea with lemon and honey, I do classical vocal exercises and Pop/Rock vocal exercises. I almost start a singing day with humming scales around the house or in the shower to warm my voice up.
4 — What is the best quote to describe your music?
Powerful. Honest. Electrifying.
5 — If you could only listen to three artists for the rest of your life that you’d never get tired of, who would they be?
Tchaikovsky, Miles Davis, Michael Jackson.
Taylor and I wrote “Take You On a Trip” a couple of years ago and it was a natural collaboration – we’ve been friends for a number of years and I’ve always loved his musical sound and style. He’s an extremely virtuosic pianist and incredible producer; he understands what simplicity, groove, and vibe can create and how it supports a good song. Every time I make music with him I see a new way to look at music, so that’s a huge reason why I love creating with him.
7 — Is there something special about this song that makes it stand out from your past releases?
It captures a different side of me… it frames my voice and my writing in a different kind of sound. My vocal performance is soft, feminine, and different than any song I’ve done. The outro is a jazz chord progression that Taylor and I solo over. I think those aspects make it the most different and notable song I’ve done so far.
8 — How much importance do you give to music videos?
I think music videos are a new required component for every song, if possible for the artist. MTV used to make videos special and cool, but I think in this “Instagram era” digital content is one of the only ways people can quickly become fans; they need a visual aesthetic and message to latch onto, not just aural.
9 — Are you performing live anytime soon?
I have performances almost every day of the week, but most of them are for corporate or private clients or recording sessions! I am mostly in the studio right now but I will announce live shows SOON on my FB and IG.
10 — Finally, what are some things most of your fans don’t know about you?
Some things fans don’t know about me… that I love opera and musical theater (my dad conducted musical theater my whole childhood – my family did about 30 shows). I love ancient Egyptian history. And that I played alto saxophone for 6 years and placed in Iowa state competitions when I was in middle school!

Michael Push Chats About House Tune “Don’t Give Up On Love” In Interview
Michael Push broke into the mainstream back in 2012 with his release on Restylers Records. “Freeze” featuring Moonfish entered MTV’s Top 10 Dance Chart, reaching a number 3 position. Having always been in love with music, Michael combines his love for pop and club music to create stunning tracks. His latest release “Don’t Give Up On Love” is an incredible classic House tune featuring the soulful vocals of LaTisha, we caught up with the Italian Producer to have a chat about his latest production.
1 – What was the inspiration behind “Don’t Give Up On Love”?
“Don’t Give Up On Love” was born back in 2015 after listening to a song by TCTS and K Stewart called “Games” which I absolutely loved back then. Once I got to the studio and started experimenting something whilst recalling that bassline. I wrote music and lyrics quickly on top and kept it in my drawer for a while as it sounded too different from what I was doing at that time.
2 – How did you and LaTisha start working together?
I discovered LaTisha in a production of someone I have been following for a while and immediately got in contact with her. Once I sent her the original idea sang by me she returned an amazing performance and I remember having chills listening to that for the first time. Also, she definitely has a voice for House music!
So far, the reaction has been amazing, I had great feedback from top DJ’s like Redondo and great support in general in clubs and on mix-shows, we also tracked some good spins on radios which is great!
4 – What was the reason behind the 4 different remixes?
The track was originally the remix that’s now called the “Love 90s Remix”. I played around with some different versions to update the sound. I’m actually surprised how that version is a DJ’s favourite and so far, the most played which means it was ahead of times…
5 – Which remix is your favourite?
I love the original, but the club mix has a contemporary piano feel which goes strong nowadays.
6 – Sum up “Don’t Give Up On Love” in 3 words?
Catchy, groovy, romantic.
7 – What’s your favourite part of the track?
I personally love LaTisha’s ad-libs towards the end and how they overlap the choir, there’s something magical in that and the track really opens up.
You can hear some 90s influences in everything this track has, from the piano to the melody and lyrics. 90s have been influencing me quite a lot recently and every song I write and produce takes from there.
9 – What’s next for Michael Push?
A new single is coming very soon and it’s amazing. I can’t wait to put it out so keep following me!
