Steff Da Campo's Exclusive Mix
 
As we wind down our Exclusive Mix series, we’re absolutely thrilled to bring you a fitting closing mix from none other than Steff Da Campo! One of the hottest producers in dance music, Steff has enjoyed a monster year, with “Make Me Feel” dominating the 1001 charts to start the year, “Out Of My Mind” being one of, if not, the biggest tracks of Swedish House Mafia’s set at Ultra, and official remixes for Dada Life, R3HAB, and TUJAMO among others. With loads of new music lined up, including his brand new solo release “Deeper Love” out now on Hexagon, there was no better time to look and listen closely at all that Steff has to offer!
 
 
Steff, 2018 has been an incredibly busy year for you, as you built really nicely off the success of “Make Me Feel.” With Swedish House Mafia playing “Out Of My Mind” during their Ultra set, the path for your ascension was set! How has the year progressed in your eyes?
To be honest, I never expected to get so far this year. It was something I could have only dreamed of. To see my own sound (with “Make Me Feel”) charting as the #1 Most Played Track for over a month on 1001... that feeling was just overwhelming. The amazing DJ support really caused my tracks to be listened to by fans all over the world, and got me to Japan, China, Canada and all over Europe.

You’ve become one of the most in demand producers and remixers in all of dance music. How do you keep up with the requests, select which tracks to work with, and still stay true to your own original ideas?
It is actually very cool to blend in my own signature sound with other artists and their influences. With that mixture you can create something really new and fresh. Every track is different in its own style, though. It doesn’t matter to me if a name is big or small, if the creativity is there and I feel the track, I'm always interested in working together!
 

For the up and coming producers out there who are reading this, do you have any key tips/suggestions for working on deadlines and maintaining your creative output?
Try to only work on projects you are feeling at that moment in your kind of style. If I am stuck on a certain track or remix for more than two days, I will leave it for a while and let it “sink in” for a bit. Because of my touring schedule this year, my creativity has actually skyrocketed when I'm not in the studio. Really some of my best ideas flow in when I'm not in the studio! So the mantra I'd like to provide: you can't force creativity!

You’ve got loads of new music on the way for us to dive into! Let’s start with “Deeper Love” on Hexagon. Don’s been banging this one out in his sets since Tomorrowland – what can you tell us about the record?
I had this idea for almost 10 years. Sometimes you just have to wait for the right moment to work it out. I sent the original idea as a bootleg to Don and he liked the track a lot so I got one of the best singers to re-sing the vocal and my original was born.
 

Now we understand that you’ve done quite some work with R3HAB! Talk to us about your new tracks together.
This happened very spontaneously! After I finished the remix for his track “Lullaby,” we discovered that we were working with the same vision and energy. Combining each other's styles just really worked out. We're currently working on loads of projects together!

You’ve also had the chance to remix one of Morgan Page’s most iconic tracks, “The Longest Road.” What was your approach to working with such a classic vocal?
To remix a grammy-nominated track really sets the bar for a remix at a whole new level. The vocal fits my style so well though that the end result feels like one of the best remixes I've made.
 

One more ID to discuss – you’ve done a new track featuring vocals from Snoop Dogg, correct?! How’d the opportunity to work with that vocal come about and what were some of the unique challenges of working with his vocal? Aside from the vocal, what else do you feel is signature to the track?
My management actually came up with the idea. Snoop Dogg is normally a very different genre and style, so it was a cool challenge to work with this icon on a more uptempo track. Even though this collaboration is pretty unique, you can surely hear some signature sounds back from me in the record.

What else is on the horizon for you? Any big plans for ADE and the fall that you can share with us?
October's one of the busiest months for me to date! I've just launched my merchandise on my website (check it out here: http://www.steffdacampo.com), I’ve got three different releases coming out, and I'm playing seven shows in four different countries.
