Trobi - "Never Let You Down"

Trobi - "Never Let You Down"
 
Returning for his second release on Spinnin’ Records, Trobi has teamed up with UK singer Stevie Appleton on summer hit “Never Let You Down.” We caught up with the young talent to get the story behind the track, how he’s felt settling in with Spinnin’ Records, and his exciting future!
 
What was the production process like for “Never Let You Down”? Were you involved in the songwriting process?
I met Stevie last year at ADE during a writers camp I did. Two months later Stevie took a flight from London to my studio near Rotterdam to work on something new and that became “Never Let You Down.” We made the demo in like one day and recorded it on a shitty $50 microphone. I was not really involved in the songwriting process because Stevie went to the Caribbean or something for a holiday and wrote the full lyrics over there.
 
 
How did you build the track around the vocal, or did you take a different approach?
We started from scratch. As I mentioned Stevie was in my studio from the beginning and we first made the chords and the guitar parts, then we built a structure for the track and after that we made the vocal demo.
 
Stevie Appleton has such a great voice – what do you feel made his voice so well suited for “Never Let You Down”?
Stevie’s voice is so crazy, I love to work with him. His voice has something like a reggae feeling as well, so it’s perfect for this track in my opinion.
 
Have you had a chance to play the track in your live sets yet?
Yeah of course. I've played it a couple of times already, and it looks like the crowd loves it!
 
Do you find it an extra challenge to play unknown vocals in your live shows?
Yeah. The people don’t know the track and the vocals, and often want to hear tracks they recognize, so sometimes it's difficult.
 
You’ve now got two Spinnin’ releases down. How are you feeling in terms of settling into the label and its team?
The label and the team are great, I text and call them every week about new music I've made and they come to my studio sometimes to listen to the tracks I’ve produced. Lots of support there.
 
 
Are there any producers right now that are particularly grabbing your attention, inspiring you, or just killing it in your eyes?
Definitely. Curbi is killing it at the moment, Boaz van de Beatz also of course, just like Mesto, Zonderling and many more. All of them are great producers.

What has you excited for the oncoming summer, and any big plans that you can share with us?
I’m really excited about my collab with Boaz van de Beatz (who also has produced for Diplo, RiFF RAFF, Ariana Grande, Major Lazer and many more). We’ll be bringing a club banger ;-)
