KEVU's Exclusive Mix

KEVU's Exclusive Mix
 
KEVU’s 2017 started with a “BANG,” as they released their Maddix collab on Revealed Recordings. They carried that momentum into a huge remix of their mentors Blasterjaxx with their rework of “Demon Eyes.” And their effort in the studio also led to a huge opportunity for them in March, as they joined Mykris on stage at Ultra to premiere their new collaboration. Gearing up for the summer, the dynamic duo have crafted their Exclusive Mix to represent what you can expect to hear from them this season!
 
 
How did you approach your Exclusive Mix and how does it compare to your live sets?
When it comes to guest mixes, we try our best to provide what people should expect from us live, which is a bunch of mashups, tons of edits and lots of unreleased music!
 
Can you highlight three artists in your mix and why they stand out to you?
At the moment we have been dropping a lot of Quintino, Maddix and Olly James. These guys have been releasing some super high energy, festival friendly tracks lately.
 
You guys had the chance to do an official remix for Blasterjaxx, who have been some of your biggest supporters and mentors. What did that opportunity mean to you guys?
It was a great opportunity! When they asked us to put our “touch” on one of their tracks we were thrilled, but not really sure what direction to go. We tried a few different ideas and ended up releasing the version that we felt had the most energy.
 
 
How’d you approach your remix? What elements of the original did you know you wanted to preserve and how do you feel you’ve made the track your own?
Well, we wanted to keep the vibe of the original, but give it our vision, so we ended up only using the acappella and building everything else around that!
 
Can you talk a little about what your first MMW experience was like this year? And of course coming up on stage with Mykris during his set at Ultra must have been a dream, right?!
Our first MMW was crazy! We booked the flights like a week before going so it pretty hectic, but also fun haha. We had been in touch with Mykris for a while, and then we decided to make a track together. A week before Ultra we talked about the idea of presenting the track at Ultra and everything went from there! Being on the Mainstage of Ultra felt amazing. It might not be the biggest festival, but it’s definitely the most special to us!
 
 
What do you guys have in the works right now production wise?
We've been preparing loads of new music, both solos and collabs. We've also been doing some radio tracks for the summer and we are really excited to release them!
 
You guys have also played some big shows in Asia, Italy, and Portugal recently. Can you highlight one show and why it stands out to you?
The highlight has to go to our Thailand show in Chiang-Mai. We played for a massive crowd and Maddix was also on the lineup so we dropped “BANG” together that night, which was pretty cool. It was also quite a journey – we had to take three flights and do a one hour drive to get to the festival and we played two hours after arriving. We were a bit tired, but a couple of Red Bulls did the job and the show was amazing!!
 
 
What are you looking forward to most about the upcoming summer season?
We're really excited about EDP Nova Era Beach on July 1st! It's a massive festival for 50,000 people with a sick lineup (Hardwell, Martin Garrix, KSHMR, Carnage, etc.) so we can’t wait for that day to come.
