D-wayne X Crossnaders - Drop It Low
D-wayne and Crossnaders joined us to celebrate their bass heavy collaboration “Drop It Low.” Released on Dyro’s WOLV label, “Drop It Low” is a dance floor destroyer primed for peak time sets. We caught up with both artists to discuss the track and more!
Do you remember when you first heard the other’s music and/or met? What was your first impression?
D-wayne: I think we actually met at a New Year’s Eve party, where we both did a little set. Ever since then we’ve stayed in touch and throughout the months that followed I also saw the name Crossnaders popping up more often. Since they're great guys and we’re musically connected, I thought it would be great fun to work on a song together!
Can you take us through the production process, going from the initial inspiration to final tweaks?
D-wayne: We first started on a different track, but after a while we decided to have a fresh new start and we made what became “Drop It Low.” I came up with the idea of the drop sound and the break structure, played it to the guys and they loved it right away. I sent the stems over to them and a few days later I had a new version back in my email. We decided to get together to finish the song, plus record some cool vocals for the breakdown. Throughout the process I was road testing the track on my tour.
“Drop It Low” certainly goes hard!! How have you been using it in your sets and what’s the reaction been like?
D-wayne: It's been a dancefloor killer in my sets for sure! I love how people sometimes may feel the drop sound is weird, and generally people are really surprised when it drops.
What does it mean to you to have Dyro’s support and release on WOLV?
D-wayne: Dyro and I have occasionally done some shows together throughout the last couple of years and we’ve always hung out and talked when we saw each other. It’s great to release “Drop It Low” on his label with his support. Looking at his amazing career, it’s really motivating and something I surely strive to reach one day too.
Crossnaders: After we finished “Drop It Low,” we sent the track to Dyro, and within five minutes we received the answer that he wanted to sign it to WOLV. It felt like a new world record of fastest signing to a music label.
What’s a highlight of each of your summers?
D-wayne: Ultra Europe was amazing, as was Tomorrowland this past weekend! I’m also hitting Asia for some great shows in August (Road to Ultra China & Storm Festival) so I can't wait to go there and play!
Crossnaders: Playing monthly at the Ultra Asia Countdown Club Tours. “Drop It Low” works every time, it feels like a special weapon in our sets.
“Drop It Low” is available to buy/stream today!
