HUGEL's Exclusive Mix
 
HUGEL is on a tear with his releases, finding a great balance between club and radio records, and we're taking a closer look at his success! From remixing legends such as Mistajam, to becoming a staple with club records on Musical Freedom to his catchy, refreshing single “Come Get Me,” there’s no slowing him down. In our feature, get a closer look at his production prowess, which included a finish in last year's Top 101 Producers, as well as 2021 life for the French star!
 
 
Florent, thanks so much for joining us with your Exclusive Mix! We’re excited to hear what you’ve been up to and what direction your music is heading. Reflecting on the past year, what have been some of the highs, and what have been some of the lows?
Well the biggest high in 2020 was that I was able to sit in the studio and create a lot. I’m very grateful for that. I would never have this time while touring. It helped me a lot to really define what music I want to do. And the lows of course were mainly not performing and not meeting the fans. And I miss the parties so much. The planes, the hotels as well. 
 
Where are you feeling musically? What are the sounds HUGEL stands for as both a DJ and producer in 2021
My main music is house music. I can produce different kinds of house. I want to do party anthems no matter where the party is. I can produce festival records, club records, radio records, maybe even a record for a party in a kitchen or a living room haha. As long as you daaance!
 
 
You’ve been on fire with your productions and your consistent output showed in a big way with your finish in the Top 101 Producers last year! What did that milestone achievement mean to you?
Oh I’m very grateful for that. Being one of the most played DJs in the world is crazy you know. I started this shit in my bedroom on a laptop so it always does something to me when I see crazy numbers or Top 101 and stuff. It’s the kind of thing I was dreaming about as a kid.
 
Your latest single “My Bed” is an exciting collaboration between you, Tobtok, & Love Harder. Tell us some more about how you came to work together and bringing the track to life!
It’s a song I started with my friend Jenson from Canada during phase one of the pandemic. I think it’s a really good summer record and the lyrics concept of “My Bed” is very fresh. Since I’m friends with Tobtok and Love Harder I asked them if they would like to collaborate on it, so we adjusted the production to make sure it fit all of us and here we go.
 
 
And up next you’ve got “Mine” on Musical Freedom. What makes that track special to you too?
It’s the last song I wrote during my last trip to the US. I haven't been back since. We wrote this in California when I was touring the US for one month. It was insane. So this record reminds me of my time there with my friends. 
 
Can you compare and contrast your production approach to club vs. streaming-oriented records. Do you enjoying make one or the other more?
I try to find the one that fits both haha, but that’s the hardest to do. Everyone wants to have this DJ track which is also a big radio tune… it’s not easy. I think I just go with the flow. Sometimes it’s a festival banger, sometimes it is more chill. Depends on my mood, where I am, who I hang out with… but I really love both.
 
 
For this live set, you recorded on the beach in the Maldives. How did the setting play into the vibe and your track selection?
I was a DJ before also becoming a music producer, so I always adapt to the place I play at as a DJ. During this set we were on a tiny island on Maldives on a beach for sunset. So I played what felt right to me to hear when the sun goes down. 
 
And as we look ahead, how are you keeping yourself motivated and on track? How have you adjusted your goals for the HUGEL project and what are two things you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
I think I’m naturally motivated haha. I have the chance to do what I love the most for a living. So it’s easy to be motivated. But if you wanna know what my next goal is – it’s to have a global hit. I want to become a globally known and respected artist.
