We seemed straight out of Soiled Dancing.
Speaking about “Starry Eyes,” how did that tune come about?
Martin: It’s a tune that we instinctively wished to make for a very long time. We love that form of pitched up hyper-soul like previous Kanye [West] information. That sort of factor is the form of sound that we all the time wished to place right into a monitor of ours. , with massive brass part and preserve that form of 80’s sound that we’ve been utilizing in our remixes and simply mash all of it collectively.
Tristan: And lyrically, we have been simply proud of the way it got here out as a result of individuals already got here out and writing to us. I believe someone on YouTube wrote one thing like, “I’m having the worst day and this tune simply introduced me again to life.” And I’m right here like, “Cool! That’s one thing we made!” It means loads and we’re seeing youngsters sing it within the crowds now. So I’m overwhelmed with the response.

However not essentially all of them as you’ve gotten a whole lot of selection in between your remixes and “Starry Eyes.” Very similar to your newest remix of “Love Me Again” between RITUAL and Tove Styrke. What was your ideas on the unique and what was your objective of your remix to it.
Tristan: We’re simply suckers for unhappy songs. Once we heard the unique, we have been like, “Fuck, this simply cuts to the core.” We had simply completed doing a number of 100bpm-trap stuff, we did a Chainsmokers remix earlier within the 12 months, so we’ve been driving that sound a bit with that tempo. It was a kind of issues the place we simply knew after we hit the primary piano chord we have been like, “Okay, we all know the place that is going.” what I imply? And when you’ve gotten that form of imaginative and prescient the place you’ll be able to virtually see the endline, it’s simply essentially the most satisfying factor since you’re not beating your self to demise about it.

Wonderful. And eventually as you guys are Vancouver locals born and raised and also you’ve been to Miami now a few instances, what’s one thing that you just’ve solely seen in Miami from working or partying right here?
Tristan: Um…I see lots of people driving to the Will Smith tune “Welcome to Miami” and I’m pondering to myself, “That’s what you do?” Like think about a tune known as “Vancouver” and blasting it throughout Vancouver.
Tristan: That will be form of bizarre. However I prefer it. I’m simply so glad that you just guys are so proud.
Martin: One other factor that simply journeys me out is that North of the Wall the place we’re from you must put on a helmet whenever you trip a motorbike. Right here, I look across the avenue and persons are simply ripping down the road, no helmet.
The way in which it’s enforced down right here is bizarre. I’ve see indicators about getting fined for not sporting a helmet whereas driving or driving on a motorbike, however individuals nonetheless simply exit sans helmet.
Martin: So there’s a regulation, proper?
Oh yeah. There’s a regulation. However, you recognize, it’s Miami.
