All Day I Dream of Terrific Toronto is fast approaching and will take place at the historic Fort York venue on July 23:

After 10 years of producing hundreds of iconic day and night dance parties in 40 cities around the world, Lee Burridge and the team at ADID recently launched their first festival (May 12-15) and rejoined their annual tour ADID World Tour (more information below). ). )…

We have had the pleasure of interviewing Double Touch, and this has been the result.

How would you present your music to someone who doesn’t know you?

We are an organic melodic house duo where we blend live instrumentation of piano, bongos & congas.  We are both musicians who love House Music, so incorporating live instruments in our sound is very important to us.

What message would you like to convey to the listeners with your music?

Music is a universal language and through blending electronic with live sounds, we hope it spreads joy and happiness across all cultures.

When did you first start the project? What is the concept behind it?

We started writing together in 2015 and it was due to both of our loves of classical as well as live music, alongside the love for electronic music that we decided to combine the two. It’s the merging of genres and worlds.

What does your current studio look like?

We are currently traveling and touring so its not too impressive at the moment.  It’s a small portable Macbook and KIDI keyboard set-up we use to write ideas on the go, then we hire out studios in LA when we can. Back in Sydney, we have just started building a studio in the blue mountains.

What is the most important instrument to each of you?

For Van-Anh, it’s obviously the piano however she played the cello for 15 years so you’ll hear a lot of cello In our writing. For Mark, he’s been a drummer his whole life so that’s where those elements come from.

What was the last record store you visited? And what did you salvage from there?

We went into an antique store in the Blue Mountains (Sydney) and we actually bought some old classical records of Chopin Concertos as well as some jazz records. Do you have hope for the future of music? How would you like the future of the music industry to be?

 

We hope that the future of music is one where there are no boundaries – Hopefully with the blending of genres, it’ll open up the classical world to more people to appreciate but the same thing is reciprocated with electronic music. Also less ghost producing, and more artists performing on stage who actually wrote the music they are playing.

Can you reveal what is in store for Double Touch for the rest of 2022?

We are currently touring Europe, then back to North America to play across the States and Canada up until October then our Australasia season starts. We have a couple of releases coming up with All Day I Dream and a few other labels so keep your ears and eyes peeled 🙂
