As we’ve already established, Merk & Kremont are one of the hottest rising production
duos around right now. Switching between crafting suitably devastating club music one
minute, and effortlessly brilliant pop anthems the next, these two are rising fast in the EDM scene.
The Italian duo is fresh off their release of the video for their new release of “Sad Story”, and decided to share with us an exclusive guest mix. We also got the chance a few weeks ago to interview the guys as well, so check that out while you jam out to this incredible guest mix!
Below is their new video to “Sad Story”.
What got you into making music, specifically Electronic Dance Music, and what made you guys decide to team up?
We started producing music when we were 18 when a mutual friend introduced us, he was actually the first person who showed us the ropes of music production. We had been deejaying for a few years prior to that and we were both big lovers of EDM music.
Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations?
We both love Jamiroquai, they were big in the 90s, they were super funky; we also really love all of the funk music from the 70s.
If you had to pick 3 of your tracks to introduce yourself to a brand new listener, what 3 would you choose?
First would be “Tundra”, the first track ever released on a big label, Fedd Le Grand actually premiered it in 2013 at Ultra Music Festival , it's the track that opened the door for us.
“Amen” is the track that made us realize we could actually try and make a living out of this..it got the attention of Steve Angello, one of our biggest inspiration as deejays, who released it on his label.
“Sad Story” is our evolution track, we produced it with an “out of the club” mentality, we wanted to make something that anyone could listen to…Our moms love it, so.. 🙂
What are some things you like to do in spare time when not making music?
We recently launched our own fashion brand, we have a new logo and the project is a mix between merchandise and an actual new clothing line. We've always been into fashion and this felt right, hopefully people will like it too.
What does the summer have in store for you?
We're gonna start with a bunch of shows in Europe, and we have a mini tour in Asia at the end of July. We're gonna be super busy in the studio with productions we have in store for next fall too.
