I had the pleasure of interviewing MIME, and here is what he had to say:
Q&A with MIME
Your style is so vibrant and constantly changes into new exciting sections. What was your writing/recording process for “Not In Love”?
Thank you! when I was producing not in love I had actually started the idea 4 months prior, I was stuck in a little block while i was in the studio and circled back to some old projects when I found NOT IN LOVE & instantly got inspired and actually finished the track that same night!
If you might not mind sharing behind-the-scenes, how did you end up connecting with No1 Billboard singer/songwriter Jantine for this track?
To be honest I slid in the dm lol, I think that some people may over think on ways to reach out to vocalists they like but i find just dming them and getting friendly seems to work the best for me.
I see you have played with Marshmello and Benny Benassi. What would you say was your biggest takeaway from those experiences?
I noticed that the energy gets to a whole different level as soon as they get on, the connection they have with the fans and crowd is something that motivates me so much!
That is awesome that you are self-taught as a producer. Who have been the biggest influences on your music?
Thank you! and I get inspiration from so many different artists of all different genres, some of my favorites that really inspire me are Gorgon City, MK, Post Malone & Tame Impala to name a few!
Are there any new projects you are working on?
