Exclusive interview: New Dance Music Friday with Kris Kross Amsterdam

Nov 24, 2017

We proudly present the New Dance Music Friday feature, your weekly update on all newly released dance tracks, brought together on one amazing Spotify playlist. Featured this week (among many others): Kris Kross Amsterdam! They're releasing the wonderful new single 'Gone Is The Night' today, featuring Jorge Blanco, and talk about the creation of the track, their music and current favorite new records in this exclusive interview. 

Hey, you just released your new single ‘Gone Is The Night', featuring Jorge Blanco. How did you create this?
"We started with the idea for the chorus, and then began to write the melodies around it. Following this, we wrote the lyrics and the drop. For the rhythm, we first had a four to the floor beat in mind, but later adjusted this to a more bubbling beat. This worked out well, we're super proud of the end result!"

What does this record say about your musical evolution as an artist?
"This record represents everything we stand for. It's a mix of different styles (pop, bubbling, disco) that comes together in one track. What we personally really like is that this record is more up tempo than 'SEX' and 'Are You Sure', but still captures that true Kris Kross Amsterdam feel."

The track is featured on Spinnin’s New Dance Music Friday playlist. How important is Spotify to you?
"For us, Spotify is the most important platform. Everything revolves around what charts we're in, how many plays we're getting and what's our position world wide. We've been in theTop 30 before, and would like to get in there again ;-) "
