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!
