Brooks's Exclusive Mix
 
Brooks joins us today and drops a fresh Exclusive Mix to celebrate the release of “Say A Little Prayer” on STMPD. Brooks gives us some insight into working with Gia Koka and also teases some exciting new music ahead. Dance away while you enjoy the read!
 
Thijs, thanks for joining us to celebrate the release of “Say A Little Prayer”! Before we jump into the release, how’s your year been thus far? What have you been up to?
I have been working hard in the studio! But at the moment it isn’t all fun and games unfortunately with the COVID-19 virus. Events are being cancelled and the region where I live in the Netherlands has a relatively high contamination rate. So I am not taking any risks, hope everybody stays safe!   
 
You got to work with the incredibly talented Gia Koka on the record, so can you tell us some more about what that was like and what you like most about her vocal?
She has an awesome voice and sound, I think it is really unique. Things just clicked when we started working together on the track!
 
Last weekend you had two shows in the US, at Avalon in Los Angeles and Summit in Austin. How’d those go?
Oh boy, those were really good. Had an awesome time, would love to go back again later this year.
 
How does the American crowd and your sets there compare to playing in Europe and Asia?
Each continent is unique and I think it is really cool to see how people can also experience music in different ways. But it doesn’t matter if I play in Europe, Asia or the States, the love for music is shared all across the globe.
 
 
You’ve teased that you have a lot of music lined up for this year, and your fans are seemingly always asking for new music. Can you share any more about your release plans this year? Any news on the Mesto collaboration?
Can’t share any details unfortunately, but all I can say is that I am working hard to get it all out there.
 
Looking closer at your Exclusive Mix, what are three stand out tracks included, and why?
I really like the sound of Victor Porfidio – “Karma.” The melody instantly sticks. Also dig “Oh Lord” from Julian Jordan, and we actually have a collab coming up together this year! Lastly I will always have fond memories of “Byte” with Martin Garrix. It marked the start of an insane adventure!
