Lucky Charmes Exclusive Mix
 
Today we have a truly special Exclusive Mix & Story from Lucky Charmes. He’s packed 30 of his own productions in the mix including some world premieres! In his story we recap his intense 2017 release schedule – he followed up releases on Revealed and Spinnin’ with an incredible four tracks in four weeks giveaway! You’ll also enjoy an inside look at his chemistry with AWIIN, summer touring highlights, and upcoming music!
 
 
How’d you approach your Exclusive Mix and how does it compare to your live sets?
This is a special one! I selected only my own original releases and some Lucky Charmes remixes for this set! It includes a couple of brand new exclusives – I’ve made so much new music lately and I can’t wait to let you guys hear it!

Can you highlight 3 tracks that you included in your mix and why they stand out to you?
Skank” – This was a new thing two years ago (recognized by Tiësto!). When I play this track people still go crazy and start to shuffle haha!
 
Ready” – This track got me so much recognition from fellow DJs and promoters! Both tracks were immediately pushed by Tiësto, and I again want to thank him for his immense support!

“Ibiza Calling” – This is fresh and new! It isn’t released yet, but it’s coming real soon!

One thing that really stands out is the sheer amount of your own material you have and are putting out at the moment! You are wrapping up a four tracks in four weeks giveaway and you’ve got tons of other music you’ve just played for the first or second time in this mix. Where’d all the tracks come from?! What amount of time does this music represent work wise?
Well I am literally in the studio every day. Sometimes a whole day, sometimes just one or two hours. I’m always open to new music and trying to work on music as much as possible. Solo material, remixes, collabs or bootlegs/mashups, I don’t care.
 
One advantage is that the music that I feel and play a lot in my DJ sets, and think it’s original, I directly can release through my own label +31 Music.

For the last four weeks I indeed released one track each week. It was more of a big “thank you” release for all of my fans who have supported me the last couple of years. Those tracks are “Let It Go” feat. Las Vegas superstar Dj Mighty Mi, “What’s Poppin’” feat. rising Dutch star Essentials, “Get Drunk” feat. Slovakian Star DJ Mairee and a solo tune called “Bad Influence” which has already been supported by Tiësto, Don Diablo, Martin Garrix, David Guetta and more! All four tunes are available now!

Can you pick one of those four tracks you just released and take us from the initial inspiration to final production?
Let’s talk “Bad Influence.” Sometimes I scroll through old hard disks to search for old projects. “Bad Influence” was one of those concepts that I started three years ago, but never finished for whatever reason! I only had a normal vocal, a wack ass bassline and a pretty distorted kick. I added custom Lucky Charmes sounds and a melody to it as well as the same kick as my song “What’s Up.” From there I pitched (down and up) the vocals and “Bad Influence” was born! I’m playing it a lot in my DJ sets!
 

You’ve dropped two big tracks with AWIIN this year. What do you like about working with him and what do you think is the key to your success together?
I met AWIIN a few years ago when he approached me at ADE to listen to his demos. He gave me a CD and I started listen to his music right there on the spot. Definitely think that was something he didn’t expect. Normally he heard from other DJs, “Cool thanks, I’ll listen to it” and then never heard anything back.
 
I was quite surprised by his talent so we kept in touch. Later that year he came to my office/studio and we started working together on some projects. We found we also had similar interests so a real friendship started and I think our friendship is the key to our success. We know exactly what’s fresh sounding and really try to create something new and unique.

How do you see “Bass 187” and “Bring Back Di Bass” fitting together? Both were big tracks, but do you prefer one over the other?
Yes both are still big! They are very similar, both peak time bass driven party bangers. I actually can’t choose which is better... because they have the same energy if you know what I mean?

 
Your summer is full of awesome shows, especially in Ibiza! What’s been a favorite so far and which are you particularly excited about?
Indeed those Ibiza gigs are really cool to do, the first one was Nervo Nation with the beautiful Nervo twins. That one was really cool, because of the whole family feeling AND they surprised me on my birthday at 12 that night!
 
Also my gigs in China, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia were really awesome! So much energy and love from the fans. It’s unbelievable what music does to people! I’m really looking forward to my gigs with Martin Garrix as well at the new Hï in Ibiza and Ushuaïa.

Any other plans for the summer and/or your music you’d like to share?
Yes! A lot of new music is coming, but the first one is “Ibiza Calling”! Stay tuned for that one. That track features the UK rapper Domzi, who also did the original vocal of “SKANK”! ;)
