Kevu Start 2017 With A Bang
Portuguese duo KEVU’s rise to stardom continues at a quick pace. After a solid string of 2016 releases including their “Lethal Industry” Festival Bootleg, the heavily supported JAGGS collab “Stop Me,” and the huge Olly James collab “Bandana” premiered by Blasterjaxx at Ultra, KEVU have taken off with their touring this year hitting spots all over Europe and Asia. The guys are back in a big way again on Revealed Recordings with the release of their Maddix collab “BANG,” and they crafted an outstanding Revealed Radio to celebrate that release.
Maddix is another great artist on the rise just like you guys. How did you guys get connected to work on “BANG”?
After hearing the releases from Maddix on Revealed last year, we really liked the vibe that he was putting in his tracks. All of his tracks have a really unique touch, but are also very powerful and energetic so we wanted to reach out about working together on a track.
Can you talk us through the production process?
A few days before ADE we decided to send a drop idea over to Pablo and he loved it! From there we finished the track really fast and we were really happy with the final result!
How have you been using “BANG” in your sets and how has it been going down?
We've been playing it in every single set, the crowd loves it! We're actually going to play in Thailand at the same festival as Maddix so we are looking forward to jumping on stage together and dropping “BANG”!
Continuing a trend with your productions, this track has gotten insane big name support in the past two weeks. Are there any artists supporting your music that you guys are surprised by anymore?
Yes! We were really surprised with David Guetta playing it as he had never supported us before, so that was a 'check' on the list haha! And we're obviously proud to have another production on Hardwell's prestigious imprint.
How would you describe your approach to your Revealed Radio mix?
It's pretty much what you would hear live from us, but we tried not to give away all of our festival edits and mashups. We always keep some exclusive material for the people that come to our shows :)
Can you highlight some artists within your mix and what makes them stand out to you?
At the moment we're really loving what Quintino, Olly James and Blasterjaxx have been releasing! Even though the trends have been changing a bit, they've been managing to keep bringing unique and energetic tracks to the table!
You guys have been busy doing some international touring this year! Can you mention a few of the standout countries that you’ve played thus far?
Yeah! We just did India and Italy in the last month and now we're heading to Thailand, Switzerland and Italy again for the next few days. We're really excited and trying to finish as much music as possible.
Any other music or plans for the year that you can tell us about?
We've been working on a lot of new and different music and we're excited to see how people will respond to it. We have a few tracks signed already coming out this year and some interesting collabs that we can´t wait to put out for everyone!
