Promise Land Exclusive Mix
Get to know Promise Land, the duo behind the most supported track of 2016, and enjoy their Exclusive Mix!
How did you select tracks for the Exclusive Mix?
We tried to do something exclusive for you guys. We decided to play some of our tracks, mashups, and some IDs from new talents.
Can you talk about the X-Vision mashups and how those came to be?
We did these mashups only for our live sets, so we are playing for the first time in a "radio show." Songs like Sweet Dreams and Chase The Sun are part of our music culture and we still love them as much as the first time we heard them.
Are any of these tracks big hits in your DJ sets?
Yes! We have good reactions from the crowd when we play X-Press, Tribal, Dark River, and also our mashups of Mantra x Chase The Sun x Take My Love and Why I Still Love You x Sweet Dreams x Awakening.
Are there any other tracks that are of special significance to you that you’d like to highlight?
This mix includes an important remix for us, the remix of Leave The World Behind. It was one of our first official remixes released on Axtone.
This track has lots of early support (again!), how does that feel?
We are always happy and proud when we have big support from other DJs on our music. It means that we have done a good job on it. All artists are welcome :)
What was the production process like for this track? What was the inspiration?
We did a short tutorial of how we produced Rebound that you can watch below. We were in the studio trying to work on something new, and after different demos we got the melody of Rebound and we thought, "We should give it a try."
This is the most supported track on our site for 2016. How proud are you of this track?
We're super proud of X-Press.
Did the support of any particular artists surprise you or feel particularly special?
We didn't expect all this amazing support on X-Press. We never thought that one day one of our track could be "the most played track in Miami." In particular, we're very happy to have been supported by Axwell, Ingrosso, David Guetta, Tiësto, Alesso, Kaskade, and Zedd.
When you finished it, were you expecting it to do well?
X-Press has a particular sound. When we finished it, we said, "Well, it sounds different from the other tracks," but for sure we didn't expect to have such big support.
Any other comments about the track?
There are no words to describe how happy and proud we are of X-Press.
