Hello Alson! What was the creation process like for this track? Did you face any challenges? How did you overcome them?
The creation process was pretty funny and cool at the same time. I sent the plain track with vocal chops and Matt heard something in there, a lyric. I was absolutely surprised about it and thought it was amazing.
How did moving from the Netherlands to Spain affect who you are as an artist?
Moving to Spain was not for my musical career but it definitely affected me in a positive way as a person. And that change probably also had an impact on the choices I made in music. I think right now I am more focused on melodic stuff and things that I really feel myself. I try to listen less to what others want and more to what I want. The sunny weather also helps with that.
What advice would you give to yourself when you were first started out ten years ago?
You can always do things better. I think maybe I could have focused better in the beginning on what I really wanted for myself.
We love that you’re collaborating with Lankford again! Do you think this will become an ongoing match-up?
Lankford and I are good friends, we call each other now and then and share music. We help each other when we can and I think that's what real friendship is for. You can definitely expect more stuff from us.
What has been one of your most memorable or life-changing achievements as an artist so far?
Not sure if life changing, but being supported by big channels was really awesome and also being able to DJ at Ibiza, the island. I think my career is still in the beginner phase so let's see what's going to happen next.
