You may know him as the voice on Hardwell’s huge hit single – Badam but Mr. Vegas has been assembling an unshakable string of international classic reggae and dancehall releases including Billboard hits for the last two decades.
Having proved adept at catchy hooks and at knowing the right beats that will hit at the right time coupled with signature songwriting, Mr. Vegas has credibility when it comes to identifying collaborators.
Collaborations with Hardwell, Major Lazer, Sean Paul add further evidence to it. And up next for him, are two fresh, young producers out of the block from India – Akade & PABLO. The song is titled “Wobble Ma Head” and is sure to find its way in your playlists once it’s out.
Having featured on the radio shows of the top-notch artists such as Hardwell, Tiesto, Nicky Romero and more, Akade has truly taken dance music to the international level.
Inspired by music from video games, PABLO started making music at the age of 16, and is now one of the fastest rising names in the Indian dance music circuit.
Ahead of the release of their collaboration, Mr. Vegas took some time out to sit with us, and discuss the collaboration, and how it came about.
T.H.E – Hey man! Welcome to T.H.E – Music Essentials. What have you been up to?
Mr. Vegas – I have been doing working on music for my upcoming EP. I am also working with some Latino producers on some other projects.
T.H.E – We have been fortunate enough to listen to your new track – Wobble Ma Head with AKADE & PABLO, and absolutely love the vibes on it! How long was it in the works?
Mr. Vegas – I met Akade and PABLO via the internet. They sent me the beat and I loved it. I worked on the track for about 3 months.
T.H.E – How was it working with both, AKADE & PABLO? How did this collaboration take place?
Mr. Vegas – Working with Akade and Pablo was really good. They knew what they wanted to hear, so they would send me messages on what to change on the song.
T.H.E – They’re such young producers and fresh on the scene. What did you like the most about working with them?
Mr. Vegas – I like their sound. When producers make music for people to dance, they are always successful.
T.H.E – Before working with them, what perception did you have about Indian artists? Did they prove you right/wrong?
Mr. Vegas – My perception was on the whole of Indian culture. I love watching music videos of Indian women dancing and singing. So I pictured in my mind, men wobbling their heads at the sight of beautiful Indian women dancing to this song.
T.H.E – You have collaborated with such big artists like Major Lazer, Hardwell, and Sean Paul. What do you look for, when you are teaming up with someone? What makes a person, the right fit for you?
