SikDuo Bring The Groove
 
SikDuo, aka Chris Moody & DJ Riz, bring the groove in their Exclusive Mix. In their interview the guys talk how they formed their partnership, highlight each others strengths, and discuss some of their favorite and upcoming music.
 
 
How did you craft your Exclusive Mix? How did you go about selecting tracks?
We usually research a bunch of music from different genres and pick out the ones we like best. It can be tech, tribal, big room, mashups, etc. Then we usually make the mix in sections to keep the flow going smoothly.

How similar or different is this mix to a SikDuo DJ set?
We usually try to make the mixes similar to our live sets. We do a bunch of quick mixing, edits, tools, and mashups to keep it interesting.
         
Can you highlight three artists and why you choose to include them?
1. Alex Guesta: We like his tribal drum vibes.
2. Regilio: He has some really good mashups.
3. Tom Starr: Love his Big Room sound.
 
How long have you guys known each other? What made you decide to start working together as SikDuo?
We’ve known each other since 1997. We have a bunch of mutual friends and have worked at a lot of places together over the years before we came up with the actual name in 2011. We started making disco house records for fun and then decided to take it more seriously and came up with the name SikDuo.

What's the biggest strength for each of you?
Chris is the drum and vocal guy while Riz has an extensive music knowledge of all genres. He also loves chopping samples and arranging songs.

Any upcoming tracks that you can tell us about?
We have a song with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano that’s going through the sample clearance process right now. We also have a track with David Tort that’s pretty much done, but we are trying to look for a vocal to complete it. We also have a few unreleased SikDuo tracks that we will be putting out in the new year.  

What does the remainder of the year look like for you?
As the year winds down, we are just spending time with our families and gearing up for the holidays and looking forward to the upcoming new year.
