[EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW] Blinkie On Making The Next Big Banger “Don’t Give Up”
After debuting his latest single “Don’t Give Up” to critical acclaim on BBC Radio 1, we grabbed UK based house producer Blinkie for a quick chat, as we were blown away by the bouncy, throwback house beat and soaring vocals. You might not have heard of Blinkie yet, but trust us, you will. Check our our interview with him below.
Where does the name Blinkie come from?
Living in London definitely influences my sound. There are so many cultures in London, so many different styles of music. You can turn a street in London and be faced with something very different to where you were 5 minutes ago. I love that. I love how expressive and creative people in London are.
What are the fans like over there?
British fans are very supportive and very honest. They get involved and attempt to contribute to your growth, whether that’s with an honest critique or a connection to more like-minded people.
How long did “Don’t Give Up” (On Love) take to write?
What 3 tunes are you particularly feeling right now?
I’m loving Calvin Harris “How Deep Is Your Love”, Pep & Dash “Roses”, Labrinth’s “Jealous” & The Weeked’s “Can’t Feel My Face”.
What are your plans for the rest of the year?
Working, working & more working! I don’t plan on slowing down any time soon. Releasing this single and hearing everyone’s reactions has just inspired me to continue to create.
