TWIST just hung out with DJ Danny Avila at our offices! We got the inside scoop on his latest single "Breaking Your Fall," who he wants to collaborate with and what's up next for him! Check out our exclusive convo and video shout-out to TWIST readers below, and make sure to check out "Breaking Your Fall" on Beatport!
TWIST: Your new song "Breaking Your Fall" came out recently. Can you tell us more about it? Danny Avila: I just came out with it in the studio. I came up with a couple of melodies and one of them was the "Breaking Your Fall" melody. Then, I had three or four different vocals, and one of them fit perfectly.
TWIST: How would you describe your sound? DA: Generally, I play big room stuff that's very energetic: a bit of house, a bit of electro, but sometimes I play a bit more techie, or a bit dub-step, so I change a little bit.
TWIST: Who would you say are your musical influences? DA: I have a lot of influences. Deniz Koyu is such a great influence for me. I also have some techie influences, because I used to play more tech-house stuff about three years ago.
TWIST: Who would you want to collaborate with in the future? DA: I would say Madonna! We went to her concert recently and she was so incredible -- such an amazing concert. And she's definitely the queen of pop music.
TWIST: What do you like most about touring? DA: Actually everything! I like to discover new venues and new places to travel. It's a bit tiring, but I love it.
TWIST: What's next for you? DA: I'm touring pretty much every weekend and most of the shows are in the States. I also have my new track "Breaking Your Fall." Then we have an incredible remix package coming out. I love the remixes so much -- I'm already playing them. And afterwards, I think I will go just back to the studio and keep working on music, and then keep touring, playing and pretty much doing what I'm doing right now.
TWIST: Thanks so much for coming in! DA: Thank you.
