Evolution: Verano feat. Austin Leeds
“To me, there’s this definite attraction-of-opposites with Austin and myself, which I find pretty absorbing. When we were making ‘Verano’ I was going to the studio in Berlin, which was covered in snow at the time and Austin would be dialling in from Miami. We’d be working on the same track, but he’d be looking out and seeing cloudless skies and palm trees! With my music making, it always has its start-point in the dark and dirty basement clubs of Berlin. When that meets Austin’s background – Miami: very expressive, very outgoing, sunny, irrepressible – I think the strange connection that lies between those two elements is what makes it work so well.”
