Yufo and Amél Give Us An Insight Into Their New Collab, Dream Collabs & More!

Hey guys, thanks for speaking with us, how are you both doing today?
: Doing great! Excited to be here with you.
Yufo: We are excellent, thank you! Summer have finally come and we are in the studio working on some new tracks!

Let’s kick things off with your brand new single, ‘Losing My Mind’. How happy are you both with the finished product?
: Very very stoked! It’s been over a year since I released a track, so it feels really good to finally get a track out. And I’m very happy to be sharing my first release on WALL with such a talented trio as Yufo.
Yufo: To be honest, we are super proud. It’s been in the works for a long time, and we feel like we managed to get that big progressive sound that we have always loved and strived to be able to produce! 

Can you give me a little insight into how this collaboration came about?
: I first heard the track this past fall when Afrojack asked me to work on the production and mixing. I loved the track from the first time I heard it. I didn’t find out till later that Yufo had started the track over 3 years ago. I feel honored to have been part of making the track and help to see it through its final stages.
Yufo: The track came to life at a writing camp in Hilversum in the Netherlands. After we created the concept and had found the right sound, we sent the track to wall and received some feedback. The guys at wall put us in contact with Amél and suggested that we joined forces to finish it up. Then we went back and forth a few times until we all were happy with how it sounded. Amél was an absolute pleasure to work with! Amazing guy and extremely talented.

How happy are you to have it released on WALL Recordings?
: As I mentioned, it’s been over a year since my last release… and to be honest, before this, I was only releasing on smaller sort of “random” labels. So releasing on WALL really feels like I’m leveling up in a big way — in many ways it feels like this is the “official” start of my career. 
Yufo: Afrojack have been the main inspiration since we started making our own music, so it is an honor to get his stamp of approval on our track and release it with the WALL family. So we are as happy as it gets!

Afrojack has also been using it as his closing song in some festival sets, how does that feel for you both?
: Honestly I’m not sure it’s totally set in yet. For years I’ve been dreaming of having my tracks played by big DJ’s like Afrojack, so to see that actually happen feels like a dream. And on top of that, to have Afrojack play it as his closing track at a festival like EDC — that’s a huge honor.
Yufo: That really has been a dream come true for us. When we were watching his sunrise set at EDC on livestream and we heard our track coming on in the end there was so much goosebumps! 

Is this the start of more collaborations, and more releases on WALL Recordings?
: Absolutely. Through working on Losing My Mind, I got to connect with the Yufo guys quite a bit. All of them are super talented writers/producers, so it didn’t take long for us to start sharing other ideas. I can’t give away too much yet, but you’ll definitely be hearing more from us in the near future;)
Yufo: Hopefully! That is our goal, and we are ready to put down the work, so we are running full steam ahead!

If you all had one dream collab, who would it be and why?
: For me it would have to be Martin Garrix. Whenever I start a track, it’s always based on melodies, and I know that’s how Garrix works as well. Right now it’s a far off dream, but maybe one day that could be a reality too…
Yufo: For us that would have to be Afrojack, he is the reason why we got into music production!

Thanks for taking the time to speak with us, do you have anything else you’d like to say to our readers?
: Thanks so much for taking the time to read through this interview! Please feel free to reach out to us online and let us know what you think of Losing My Mind!
Yufo: Hope you all love «Losing My Mind» as much as we do! Thanks for taking the time to check it out, and watch out for more music from us soon. And also we wish you all a great summer!
