If You have not heard of SPUDS or KUIZZ, then you are for sure missing out in the up & rising Malaysian scene of young musical talents. The duo team and solo artist recently formed a collaborative called MFMF. And here is what you would want to know more about them...

MFMF. - A collective of SPUDS & KUIZZ - How did it all started?
MFMF. is started because both of us - Spuds and Kuizz, wanted an outlet where we could showcase and experiment with music which is different from the usual stuff our individual brands are known for. We first got together when we worked on ‘Okay’ last year, which is a single featuring Spuds and Kuizz. From there, we realized that we had good chemistry and jived together really well; hence the decision to form MFMF. together as a trio.

What makes MFMF. unique from other producers?
We are not afraid to try out and experiment in other genres! As mentioned, both of us came from vastly different musical backgrounds, and when we got together, we took the best of both worlds from our experiences and applied them to MFMF. and I guess that’s what makes us unique.
Flashes - The latest track from your collective production, what is the inspiration of it & how does this derive from your other songs?
Flashes is a song about falling in love and meeting your childhood sweetheart again and recalling those moments in flashes. We are really excited to release this song as it is definitely something new for us and it is vastly different from the songs which we have done in the past - Spuds being a dance-focused duo, and Kuizz being a Pop / R&B act. When we first started out on this project we weren’t sure about how it would turn out but somehow everything worked in our favor and this song is the end product that came out of the session.  

What made you choose Bil Musa as the vocalist for Flashes? Also, any other plans to collaborate with other artists soon?
When we finished the beat, we were looking for an artist who would suit the cheerful, uplifting vibe of this song would. Kuizz suggested that Bil Musa was the perfect candidate - but we weren’t sure that she would do it as she comes from an indie background. When finally showed the song to Bil Musa, she LOVED it. She then wrote the top-line and the rest is history.  As for future plans, we are gonna have a diverse cast of upcoming and talented artists from Malaysia and all around the world lined up such as Daiyan Trisha, Aina Abdul, and Haneri from Singapore. And that's not even the final list yet. Exciting times ahead, so stay tuned folks!

Tell us your plans in the near future!
Release more songs on a consistent basis, and to try out more things which are out of our comfort zone. And also, to work with more artists coming from different genres and countries. We feel that this is the best way to improve and grow ourselves going forward - both individually, and also as a team.

The cover of MAKE ME LOCA reshapes the sensuality of the song and invites you to listen to an absolutely effective piece, pubblished by Sony Music Italy.

Sometimes, a chance meeting is all it takes for magic to happen. In Los Angeles, at the start of a new school year, Bob Sinclar was invited to a charity event organized by the French high school his children go to. Among the parents participating was a certain Robbie Williams, and during this atypical meeting far from studios, clubs and gigantic concert halls, all the elements were there for an artistic collaboration between an electronic music star and world-renowned pop icon: 'Electrico Romantico'.
Listen to Bob Sinclar feat. Robbie Williams – Electrico Romantico
Confirming the musical shift of Bob Sinclar after dominating European radio airplay for almost fifteen weeks with summer single 'I Believe', 'Electrico Romantico' offers a combination of explosive grooves and disco-esque vibes to really get the crowd going. Add to that Robbie Williams' alluring, impeccably poppy vocals and you know that this meeting of two staple artists shows why both artists are unanimously touted as 21st century hit machines.
Legendary French artist Bob Sinclar has been one of the longest standing figures of the international electronic music scene, and produced some of its most iconic house hits across a career spanning almost 20 years. With eight full-length albums under his belt, a glittering discography that includes #1 hits and gold and platinum records, and a constant tour diary that features annual slots at Carnaval de Rio and Tomorrowland as well as an annual residency at Pacha Ibiza with his 'Paris By Night' concept, his influence can be felt throughout all levels of dance music.
There's no denying that Robbie Williams is among the biggest music stars of this era. As a solo artist, he has sold over 77 million albums worldwide, has six of the top 100 best-selling albums in British history, and has had fourteen #1 singles. He is also one of the most in-demand live performers in music, who continues to play stadiums around the world, and has won a record number of eighteen BRIT Awards – more than any other artist in music history.

One of the fastest rising duos in the electronic music industry, D’Angello & Francis continue to prove their worth through stellar productions released through one of the industry’s most prominent labels, Smash The House. The pair were recently mentioned by Bassjackers in the DJ Mag top 100 feature as breakthrough artists, yet another testament to their talent.

How do you feel about being mentioned as breakthrough artists in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs feature?

We didn’t expect Bassjackers to shout out to us. They’ve worked with so many artists in their career, so it’s a great honor they mentioned us. We did do a massive collab with them on Smash The House, called ‘All Aboard’ and we just finished a new one, so in that way it make sense. We are very happy with these tracks and it’s nice to have their ongoing support.

Having worked so closely with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike throughout your careers, are you planning to continue working with them in the future?

Sure, we have a lot of new tracks lined up for their label. And we always send our finished tracks to them to get their feedback first. They really like the style we produce and most of the time you will find a track of ours in their set. That’s why we also decided to work on a track together. We are very excited about that one!

Your latest track ‘Victorum’ received a great deal of support, what was your inspiration behind the track?

Yeah we did get good support on that track! The break melody is actually based on an old trance record from the late 90s. We just worked from there on. Made the melody much more powerful, put our own vocals on it and worked out a massive drop. Fire!

What’s next for you, what’s coming up?

Music-wise we have our collab ‘The Flight’ with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & Bassjackers that’s coming up. We are finishing a lot of new tracks in the studio these days. We kind of took a step back from touring during the last months, to get all our music finished. So we can release a lot more new stuff in 2019!
