Justin Mylo's Exclusive Mix
Today we’re thrilled to be celebrating Justin Mylo’s new release on STMPD Records. “I Wanna Fall In Love” has been a hotly anticipated ID since being premiered at Ultra Music Festival Miami last year, and we were excited to get the full scoop on the track coming together. Read on to learn more about the signature release, some of Justin’s personal favorite tracks, and growth with Martin Garrix and the STMPD Family. His Exclusive Mix features loads of originals as well as some classic throwbacks and deeper cuts, so be sure to tune in for sixty minutes of ear candy!
Justin, thanks for joining us today! Before we jump into your new release and exciting plans for 2020, set the stage for us. How has your winter season been thus far and what have been some highlights?
Winter has been crazy as usual. My absolute highlight was putting out my own EP during ADE on which I released a couple of songs which were my babies haha. I was really involved in the songwriting process of these songs so they felt super special. I ended the year with an insane show in one of my favorite countries to play, India!
It’s been a long wait for “I Wanna Fall In Love” for everyone who heard your Ultra Miami set last year! Can you talk about the build up and anticipation for the release?
“I Wanna Fall In Love” really came together pretty quickly... I think the complete idea of the song was produced in under a week, and it was a dream come true to actually premiere it at Ultra, but then it actually got forgotten a little bit… But now with the STMPD team it really felt like the right place and time to finally put this one out!
The track features an outstanding vocal from Raphaella! What do you like about her voice and what makes it work so well in the track?
I think her sound is so international, she sounds like a true popstar! And I think that the edge that she has in her voice really works super well with the lyrics which are kinda super sweet haha.
Are there any other elements about the track that make it really special? Do you have a favorite memory playing it out live?
I personally love how her voice actually is the lead in the drop as well. I just love using voices kind of as an instrument and it really makes the song sound super organic! I still remember playing this at Ultra and I must say I’m always a bit insecure playing out unreleased stuff but it actually went off and the crowd responded well and that really is the best feeling.
We recently saw on Instagram you were together with Martin Garrix in Antarctica. Can you tell us some more about that experience?
Antarctica was such an unreal crazy experience, arriving there almost felt like arriving on a completely different planet. If the moon landing was faked that would have been the perfect spot to do it lol. The peace and ear deafening silence was something that really impressed me and was so relaxing. And from now on penguins definitely are my favorite animals!
How has your relationship with Martin and with STMPD continued to develop over the years? What do you think are some of the key qualities that enable you to have both such a great friendship and great work relationship at the same time?
As friends you obviously want to help each other the best you can so the STMPD team of course has always been super super helpful. I know I have always been part of the fam but we actually just started working together ‘officially’ which I’m super happy with!!
Looking closer at your Exclusive Mix, what are some stand out tracks or artists you included and why?
I know “XTC” by Solardo & Eli Brown has been out for a while but I really had to include it in this mix! It actually was one of my top played songs on my personal Spotify account and every time I play it I still make the craziest bass face lol.
Besides being a showcase of a lot of my own songs I tried to include a couple classics that I love here and there, and even included a few deeper songs that I think you would not expect me to play!
Miami and Ultra is already next month! We’re so excited to see you again on the lineup. Do you have anything special planned that you can share with us?
What is Ultra without premiering new songs right?! So that is definitely gonna happen. Working on a lot of interesting projects in the studio and I really can’t wait to show you guys.
