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.
INTERVIEW WITH D’ANGELLO & FRANCIS
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!
