Matt Caldwell PR – Where does your current style stand in relation to the sonic spectrum?

Dvble Trvble – We like to listen to all different kinds of genres which help us produce music – from melodic stuff and also heavy energetic beats.

Dvble Trvble – Definitely, it changes. Our musical tastes differ as time goes by.

Matt Caldwell PR – Where did you draw your influences growing up?

Dvble Trvble – We were into Hip Hop, R&B and stuff like that when we were young, as it was big at the time, then we started to get into electronic musicin early 2000.

Matt Caldwell PR – You have recently released a new project ‘In You Eyes’. What can you tell us about it?

Dvble Trvble – This track was actually made like a couple of years ago. We had 3 different kinds of vocalist and reworked it more than 5 times.It was really difficult to find the right vocalist, and the right sound to balance the concept of the track.

Matt Caldwell PR – How long did it take to complete this single?

Dvble Trvble – Started 3 years ago, then worked on other tracks and resumed early this year.

Matt Caldwell PR – Jessica Main is the voice behind this track. Why did you choose her for this job?

Dvble Trvble – She wrote the lyrics and she’s one of our long-time musician friends. PHiLGooD music introduced us to Jessica and we liked her voice.

Matt Caldwell PR – Could you walk us through some production techniques or plug-ins used to create this single?

Dvble Trvble – We used Logic 9 for the sequence track and Pro Tools for vocal and other instrumental recordings.For plug-ins we love all the Waves products, Audio Damage, Sausage Fattener, TC elec. stuff, Lexicon verbs, etc….There are so many we like to use. Whether it’s Progressive House or anykind, we start by playing the keys for melody. When the main melody of the track is finalised, we then start the sound production. Sometimes a nice fat kick gets us started and motivated, but mostly the melody with a piano or synth.

Matt Caldwell PR – Do you have any more projects lined-up this year?

Dvble Trvble – Our new single ‘Trapeze’ will be released in July and more tracks should come out one after another.
