Hey guys, thanks so much for taking the time to do this interview!
- How have you both been?
MOSKA: GREAT! Really happy with the reaction of the people to BOM DADDY!
Tessa: Super busy with work and some new up and coming projects in the pipeline. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions. It’s just such an exciting time in my life and I am so grateful, nervous, happy and beyond excited to be busy working and watching my dreams come true.
- What was it like to collaborate with each other on ‘Bom Daddy’?
MOSKA: Was really fun! I knew Tessa before for her TikTok videos, but I didn’t know about her amazing voice! That was a big surprise for me!
Tessa: Very exciting and such an incredible learning experience. I’m completely new to this side of music even though I’ve been singing since I was really young so it was a huge step for me to release my first ever song but MOSKA helped a lot and made it quite easy and Tiesto and his team were so encouraging and supportive of us both.
- MOSKA, you are key player in the Latin House scene, where do you draw your inspiration from?
MOSKA: I loveee Latin music! I think I get my inspiration from some famous Latin music genres like Salsa or Merengue! And I loveee to work on percussions, I think drums and percussions give me a lot of inspiration when I’m working on my tracks.
- How do you go about modernising the signature, beloved Latin sounds?
MOSKA: Everything is about balance, I always try to mix what’s trending right now with Latin music, keeping the freshness of Latin music with the fatness of House music.
- As this is your debut single as a vocalist Tessa, what’s your experience been like since the release of ‘Bom Daddy’?
Tessa: It’s been all kinds of wonderful crazy. I’ve literally just landed back in the U.K after heading off to shoot our music video in Turkey with my manager and the love we got both in Turkey and globally has left me overwhelmed and so grateful. My existing social media supporters have been extremely excited, and a lot of new people have reached out to congratulate me (producers, singers and people in the industry that I have always looked up to etc) too and this has left me feeling really welcomed into the music industry.
- Before the track, you were well known for your social media presence, how have you built such a following at only 20 years old?
Tessa: I’ve always been myself and that’s what I believe people love me for. I talk to my supporters all the time so they’re like a second family to me and I always listen to their feedback on my content so that I can continue to create content they love and that I enjoy. It comes with a lot of hard work but when you’re doing what you love, it’s actually so much fun, even on the hard days.
- What has it been like for your both to collaborate with the legendary Tiësto on this track?
MOSKA: It’s always a pleasure to work with such a legend, his input and feedback on the track was the key to make this track a really good record!
Tessa: I was so nervous to start with because he’s not only a legend in his own right but he’s collabed with so many huge names, it’s so intimidating when you over think it but he’s such a nice guy and so down to earth which made it easy to work with him. I feel really honored and cannot thank him enough for taking a chance on me.
- Have you guys spent a lot of time in the studio during lockdown?
MOSKA: YESSS, a lottt of studio time…. And videogames hehe
Tessa: I’ve not been in a studio since I recorded ‘Bom daddy’ due to the lockdown. It’s basically been me recording my YouTube covers in my studio at home. however, since the release of ‘Bom Daddy’, I have been asked by a few very exciting producers to work on some tracks and I’m heading into a studio this week which is very exciting!
- What do both of you have in store release wise and are there any other exciting projects on the horizon?
MOSKA: A LOT OF MUSIC COMING FOR YOU GUYS!
- Finally, do you have a quick message to your fans?
MOSKA: THANK YOUUU VERY MUCH for all the support on BOM DADDY with Tessa! Stay tuned cuz there is a lot music coming! 😊
