Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Thanks for having us, guys! Everything is going very well so far. Since our first release “Thinking Of You” the tables have turned and we have so many possibilities we never had before. We are glad that the brand HEART FX becomes more and more popular and that our team “Be Yourself Music” is taking care of us.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “King Without A Throne”?
This song is our second release and was the pilot track for the rebranding campaign of big and dirty recordings. It all began with detecting Joe Jury, our songwriter for the track. After a few days he sent the writing of “King Without A Throne” and we knew, ok we have to support his genius writing with a really special production. So we focused on a pop/trap combination and the result is really good to our ears.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
It was Joe, who brought this northern/british vibe into the song. We guess he was inspired by his hometown and the love for the historical events that took place in the UK in general. Combined with special essence of love and relationships, we received a powerful writing.
Any plans to release a video fot the single?
Yeah, it would be great if it gets possible. It depends on how the song is performing the next few months. Maybe we will release a lyric video first, but if the song is going well we would definitely shoot an official music video.
How was the recording and writing process?
After Joe did the writing, he recorded his vocals in a studio in UK. After finishing the last tweakings, he sent the vocal stems and we started working on “King Without A Throne”.
What was it like to work with Joe Jury and how did that relationship develop?
Joe is a very friendly and professional guy. He was very quick with the writing process and his recorded vocals had a very good quality. Even with little changes and add-lips he was on point and knew what we needed. We are very happy that we found him!
How much did he get to influence the song?
First we were not sure which sound and music-combination could fit, because it seemd that the writing would sound a bit moody with the wrong production. Our first version wasn’t sounding fresh and friendly enough together. So we made a second version in which we supported his vocal with more friendly and pop-like chords and suddenly the track received a new face. It was sounding way more open and fresh. That`s the actual version that got signed.
What role does Austria plays in your music?
Well, Austria is a beautiful place to live, but we are more focused on international music and definitely want to become a part of it.
In Austria we have a pretty “exotic” character regarding music compared to other countrys like the Netherlands, UK or US. Anyways, we are proud of being an Austrian DJ/Producer duo, that got the chance to work together with an international music label.
How has your rock background have influence this new project?
Often we use guitars in our productions or use them to get the idea done. Sometimes its useful in the production process itself, thinking of gigs to get more inspired. Those feelings and experiences really help making a song more outstanding and powerful.
On stage, the “rock” and “DJ” background definitely helps us a lot. Through our shows in the past we understood that a show has to be energetic. It has to be entertaining, fat and remarkable. Us and the whole crowd simply should have an awesome time.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yeah you could say so. Music styles are always changing and developing. We are familiar with so many music styles that we don’t know what our next releases will sound like. We always try to walk new ways, and are focused on a high quality sound and sophisticated productions. HEART FX is developing every single day.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Yes, the next release will be at the fall of 2016. It’s a direct follow up of “Thinking Of You” on Flamingo Recodings. Keep yur eyes open and your ears uncovered for “Pull You Closer”!
Would all the songs have the same enigmatic vibe?
It depends on the writing, our mood and the flow during the production process. Everything can happen. If we feel, that an moody/enigmatic vibe would fit, we produce it into this direction. In most of the cases its true, that you can hear an emotional touch in our songs. If you feel good while listening to our music, we have done something right.
Any plans to hit the road?
YES YES YES! We can’t wait to get on the road. We wanna play shows everywhere on the globe. That’s maybe one of our greatest wishes ever! At the moment we are still more focused on the music, cause it’s the key to enter the worlds stages. We know that only one track can already bring us there, so we keep going and going until it happens!
What else is happening next HEART FX’s world?
We definitely want to build up the brand HEART FX together with our partner Be Yourself Music and are planning to release a bunch of new tracks in 2017. We want to cooperate with other artists and hopefully bring our whole stuff on stage. 2017 will be great, we can feel it!
