Exclusive interview: New Dance Music Friday with Madison Mars

Sep 25, 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): Madison Mars! He's released his new single 'Stardust' together with Lucas & Steve last week, provides the list with some musical tips, and tells all about it in this exclusive interview.

Hey, you just released your new single 'Stardust', together with Lucas & Steve. How did you create this?
"I've always been a big fan of Lucas & Steve's work, playing a lot of their tracks in my sets and vice versa. So it was just a matter of time before we made this collab happen. After I met the guys this summer in Holland we decided to go for it! We exchanged some melody ideas and once we nailed those, we basically sent audio stems and midis back and forth, and the collab was born! It was a really easy process actually, as we all share the same musical taste, the production progress was just like riding a bike. Love the guys!" 

What does this record say about your musical evolution as an artist?
"I have a long history as a producer, making all sorts of productions, but this track definitely reflects my current state of mind. I like to keep it simple, melodic and energetic. Something to light up my sets and mood!" 

The track is featured on Spinnin’s New Dance Music Friday playlist. How important is Spotify to you?
"Streaming is a nowadays recordstore, and Spotify is the #1 platform for that. It is very important to get my music out on Spotify and being featured on major playlists is a huge bonus, as then your music will reach wider audience."
