Welcome to BuzzMusic, Andrea! Congratulations on the release of the, “I Don’t Know Your Name (Remix).” Where did inspiration strike to take this song and give it the ultimate dance ambiance?
We wanted to give the song a chance to express itself in a different way. The original version is such an emotional, heart wringing balled, but maybe you don’t want to sit down and cry your feelings away. Sometimes you want to dance the feelings out or express them in a different way.
Could you please share a glimpse of what went into the making of, “I Don’t Know Your Name (Remix)”?
It starts with listening to all kinds of music, from which I draw inspiration, and then talking to different members of my team. On this remix, a lot of credit goes to Aleksandar Masevski, who is the producer I work with. He is always challenging me to work with new styles and push boundaries. Sometimes, we have to start all over, but sometimes it’s just a different version of the same song. But the key is to be open to new experiences, whether you are going a bit retro, to bring in influences from a different genre, or trying to do something totally new.
With this being your second release available to the public, how do you feel that you have grown as an artist from your first release until now?
I’ve grown in a sense that I believe in myself more and more each day, and the confidence in what I do is slowly increasing. I am cognizant that I still have a long way to go, but the positive reassurance always helps. I’m truly excited about the journey and can’t wait to see where it takes me.
What has been the best piece of advice that you have gotten on your musical journey this far?
The most important thing is to believe in yourself. Even if the odds are against you, double down and work harder and go get it. You have to throw yourself into the fire, and through that process, you will become stronger. You also have to be willing to make sacrifices.
What can we expect to see next from you?
You can expect a lot of new music and projects. Everyone song we put out is a completely different journey that we want you to be a part of. Everything is new and exciting for me as much as it is for you. I’m thrilled that we can go through this together. We are still working on some arrangements for the songs I have out, as well as working on a lot of new material. We just recorded I song I absolutely love called (for now) “Talk to Me,” which incorporates a lot of synthwave elements. I decided after all of the trauma of 2020, that we needed to relax and dance a little. But also, I am really looking forward to performing again and interacting with an audience, once we get past the pandemic crisis.
