Havoc & Lawn, Sunday Noise, and Deep Contrast have come together to bring you a fantastic tune on Sony's Free Music Recordings. They stopped by to talk about how the song came together as well as give some updates on what they have been up to and where they're headed.
Tell us about how this collaboration came together.
Sunday Noise: Deep Contrast and myself started the idea with the sample of “Cumbia en la Mar” and we added a bassline, drums, and changed the sample around. I sent it over to my friends over at Havoc & Lawn and they put their magic on the track!
Sunday Noise, since last we spoke, you’ve played at quite a few clubs, headlined at Magic World Festival, and even gone on tour! In what ways have these new experiences shaped your opinion of the touring lifestyle and the industry as a whole?
It was a fantastic experience to perform on stage and see the crowd jumping and dancing with the music. It was such an in-the-moment experience with just a whole rush of emotions going through my head. I got to meet a lot of people and friends from other cities. The vibes were super positive, and the fans were amazing sending out so much love! At one show, I got to see Luke Nash play after me which was an exciting moment to see my big brother on the stage.
Deep Contrast, tell us more about your journey into EDM. What brought you into the fold and inspired you to start producing?
I started producing music back in May 2014 because I wanted to know how artists like Deadmau5, Skrillex, and Daft Punk made their kind of music, I started like most people do by watching YouTube tutorials. I made some big room and dubstep at first before moving into tropical house like two years ago and then tech house, Latin house, and groove after discovering artists like Kryder, Tom Staar, Chocolate Puma, and a lot of artists from Sie Records My main inspiration is seeing all the people and crowds enjoying any kind of music and having a good time. I started going to parties and clubs like one year ago and have always had a good time, so I want to make music which gives people a good time as well! I haven’t DJed a lot as I live in a small city, but sometimes my friends and I will throw some parties that I’ll play at and we’ll have a blast just dancing, drinking and talking together.
Havoc & Lawn: In this period, we are focusing on making fresh music and creating what we truly enjoy. We are gradually transitioning from house music to tech house. We have a huge remix coming in August for an Italian legend (Who we think you can guess pretty easily!) as well as some gigs in Ibiza and Riccione during the summer! We are also preparing some fresh house collaboration with singers that you won't expect!
Deep Contrast: I’m working on a new project called “Hidden Culture” where I want to release some of my underground stuff. For that project, I’ve been producing a lot of Techno, Hard Techno and Leftfield techno. As far as the future for Deep Contrast, I want to keep making music under this name, but I want to keep exploring with those aforementioned underground genres as well. The differences between Hidden Culture and Deep Contrast are in the sounds and the BPM; when I’m Hidden Culture, I play a lot of raw and hard sounds in the range of 126 to 136 BPM but when I’m Deep Contrast I play stuff from 118 to 124 BPM, I guess the word “Deep” in my artist name tells a lot of what I want to do with it!
A huge thank you to all of these amazing guys for taking the time to answer our questions!
