INTERVIEW: Van Duo
Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hello everyone, it has been a great summer so far, a lot of excitement around the music and VAN DUO project, it feels like the vision is being accepted! How are you?
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Rotator”?
Of course, are there any specifics you want to know?
These two tracks evolved from older demos. and after playing these tracks for a long time there was no other choice rather than updating it to what they sound now, it was a lot of work to find a balance in between deep / emotional but yet accessible and danceable.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Not really, VAN DUO has developing a specific sound to make sure it stands out. VAN DUO did find some inspiration out of older techno/trance records.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
As of yet no music video will be made, for the future the visuals will definitely be developed and created.
Why naming the album after this track in particular?
This track spoke to us a lot and we felt it had potential to receive support from sophisticated djs but also more accessible djs. And Rotator is a cool name haha.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was lots of testing and giving different versions time to breath for a while before changing any progressions or rhythms. One day we did find a groove and interesting rhythm and we stuck on to it and finished the track in 1 day.
Known for playing with different genres – how do you balance them together?
Mainly everything we’ve been doing is electronic music but some instruments are live and recorded. The mixing in between genres is just a matter of making music that resonates with VAN DUO.
Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
There are no lyrics within our latest release.
Any plans to hit the road?
Our debut show will be August 2nd, 2018 with Martin Garrix at Ushuaia Ibiza. A big moment and exciting period for VAN DUO. After the debut show, increase our work ethic and build up from there!
What else is happening next in Van Duo’s world?
We’ve got a lot of music to be released over the coming months including a new release with STMPD RCRDS, a Remix of Martin Garrix’s latest single with Khalid. Also we are partnering up with our friend Lost Frequencies and his label Found Frequencies for 1 single release + a remix of his latest single as well!
Hi Inanna, welcome to VENTS! How have you been? Great (and busy!), thanks so much …
