Thursday Thoughts 022: VASSY at ADE
In the second edition of our Amsterdam Dance Event interview series, we had the chance to talk to a voice everyone has heard: VASSY. The Australian rocks a discography that includes collaborations with artists like David Guetta, Showtek, Tiësto, KSHMR and many more. That last collaboration, “Secrets,” actually reached double-platinum status in several countries. With a solo album in the works, and many more collaborations to come, we talked the future, favorite performances and more with VASSY.
How crazy was ADE for you so far?
It was so busy and chaotic but fun and worth it!! I love ADE as you always run into everyone you know and finally meet people you have only known via email or social media
At what point in your life did you decide to become fully focused on being a musician?
I knew from a young age as a kid despite being kicked out of school choir I knew it was my calling 😉 I always say music choses you, you don’t chose Music
So far in your career, what has been your most memorable performance?
Tomorowland – That crowd is insanely huge and ULTRA in Miami as I performed with Tiësto and it was at sunset time so magical.
How do you get inspired to write your lyrics?
I have to be in the mode its hard but have to be in the studio and force myself lol and then I have to speak from a place of truth.
Can you describe what it was like to work in studio with Tiësto, KSHMR, David Guetta and more?
Fulfilling, exciting and a dream… so much fun. I love them all; everyone has their own way of working and its cool to experience it all.
What one word would you use to describe your performance on stage with Tiësto at the Electric Zoo this year, and why?
Electric because it was 😉 the visuals that night were off the hook; the best ever.
