Daniel Wilde already got his own ‘focus’ on February but this time our Souvenir vocalist comes back on the scene with his enigmatic “Take You Back” that makes him such a diamond in the rough. And to top it off, he gives away 3 free tracks to download here. Let’s have a talk about ‘In The City #3’ with Daniel Wilde now.
Hi Daniel. First tell us a little behind the scenes story about “Take you back”.
take you back started with a loop I found somewhere, that has this somehow party background noise vibe. Then I started to play around a bit and immediately played this oldschool and somehow hip hop influenced bassline. Some 808s later I had the feeling that it brought back some old memories. Influenced by that I sang the vocal “I want to take you back to yesterday”, pitched it a bit and there you go….
You’re from Heidelberg but you’re living in Berlin. Where is your favorite place in these two cities?
My favorite place in Berlin is where I live, it’s Mitte. I just love it around there. I walk around the streets a lot to find inspiration… Heidelberg on the other hand is such a lovely city… So beautiful… The scene there is also growing. You should check out the Ctrl Mvmnt parties.
Favorite city you’ve visited?
Well, I’d say I am totally down with New York, Williamsburg in particular, I think I could live there… It has a great vibe. But I also love Barcelona a lot. I am there right now, and maybe you are too =)
What is the funniest thing ever happened while touring?
I am bad at telling jokes really, and I can tell you half of the fun I had I cannot remember anymore…=) But I tell you, touring is so exciting, meeting new people and new places and having incredible moments together, you know. Like last year when I played at the Algarve in Portugal and the sun came up over the ocean just right to my last track. It’s goosebumps…
In the inside..
