Every year, the Amsterdam Dance Event brings musicians and their fans in from around the globe for a true celebration of EDM. That also means that we at Nexus Radio get the chance to speak with some of the best and brightest artists the music industry has to offer every year. Among the artists at this year’s ADE, we were lucky enough to get the chance to speak with the incredible talents behind TELYKast – an up-and-coming act who are already making waves with clubtastic hits like “Unbreakable”, “Better Now,” and “Somebody New.”
Of course, like most artists, the guys behind the band are pretty down-to-earth when they’re not on stage. So kicking off the interview, they were quick to open up about how it felt to be performing at their first ADE. Although it was initially overwhelming to find themselves face to face with so many people – fans and industry professionals alike – the band quickly settled into the “high energy” of the experience, especially given the lull of recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
That being said, just because they’re having fun doesn’t mean they’ve stopped working. During the week of ADE, they released an Ava Max Remix, followed by their new single “Better Now,” which came out just a week later. During the interview, when asked about their upcoming release, they described themselves as “super excited,” With hindsight, it’s not hard to see why. So all we’ll say here is that if you have listened to “Better Now” yet, you’ve got a real treat in store.
And while you’re listening, you may find yourself inspired to make music of your own, at least if TELYKast’s approach is anything to go by. In their own words, once you start listening to music, “the creative juices just start flowing.”
Alternatively, crowds can also be a strong source of inspiration.
