Brian Hioe: Can you briefly introduce yourself for readers that might not know you?
Jaden Thompson: I’m a house producer and DJ from a town in England called Swindon. I hold a residency at fabric London and I’m quarter Chinese!
BH: What excited you about collaborating with Seth Troxler? What does that represent for you as a younger artist working with a more established artist?
JT: Seth was one of the first DJs that really inspired me growing up. Before even seeing him live, it was the sets on YouTube that I’d be watching as a kid, thinking ‘I wanna do that one day’. So to be able to collaborate with him is really something special. Having Seth as a mentor and a friend has really helped me, as he’s someone I can relate to.
BH: Tell us about how the last year has been for you creatively? How is it now that things are opening up after COVID?
JT: I released some of my best music during lockdown, so I would say being stuck at home had
some positive impact on my creativity. It’s great to see the world opening up and everyone being able to enjoy themselves at parties again!
BH: Can you describe the release for our readers? What was the process making it like and what did that entail?
JT: I had sent the beat to Seth and we then got in the studio to work on it together. We both recorded our vocals, and the rest is history!
BH: Is there anything you would like to say in closing to readers? Electric Soul has a strong base in Asia, in particular. Any plans to come to Asia in the future?
JT: Thank you for reading and I hope to see you sometime in the near future in Asia! It’s
somewhere I’ve always wanted to tour in and experience the different cultures.
