Will Wallace talks about his latest track “Mind Blown”, and more. Read our exclusive chat here!
T.H.E – Tell us the inspiration behind your latest track ‘Mind Blown’?
Will Wallace – I has just finished watching the Arcane series, I don’t usually watch much TV but I had to check this out & it was great, afterwards I felt inspired to work on some fresh music and the core of ‘mind blown’ was created in just a few hours, sort of accidentally. I was just messing around with some cool synths on my keyboard and I ended up coming up with the ominous chords and the sliding bassline.
T.H.E – What goals did you have for this release?
Will Wallace – It felt very natural to want to release this song because the creative process was just as natural. I wanted to share this new sound I am exploring and see if people enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
T.H.E – What gets your creative juices flowing?
Will Wallace – Playing video games, watching movies/TV, exercise, spending time with friends/family or anything that involves stepping away from music is always great, I always feel refreshed to come back to it even if its only for a few hours. I also love creating different genres of music or just messing about with synths and gear, I find it helps me remember why I love music and the reason I began wanting to make music in the first place.
T.H.E – Did you have to overcome any struggles at all during the creative process?
Will Wallace – Not for Mind Blown. The process of the track coming together was super simple, it was more the sonics of the overall sound of the track that took awhile to come together but in terms of all of the creative assets to the track there were no struggles. The idea came about very naturally.
T.H.E – How would you describe this release to someone who hasn’t heard it?
Will Wallace – Mind Blown is a hypnotic, melodic, darker take on house music combined with a catchy vocal sample that really gets stuck in your head, and you’re probably being a bit of a d**k if you haven’t listened to it yet.
T.H.E – Who would you love to see support ‘Mind Blown’
Will Wallace – Honestly any support is amazing & the response so far has been sick, I’m excited to continue to release new music all year.
T.H.E – Where can people go and grab their copy of ‘Mind Blown’?
Will Wallace – Mind Blown is available on all streaming platforms as well as iTunes & Beatport (for the extended mix for all my DJ friends).
