When I started this project, I knew I wanted to create something different. A fresh, new vibe and a song people could relate to. I strayed away from a club sound, and went for more a mellow and feel good route. A tune that people can enjoy listening to, whether it’s playing in the car, hanging out with friends, or even while exercising.  Just something easy on the ears. 

Usually, when starting a new track, I either begin programming the drums or writing the melodies. For ‘Star Sign’ I wrote the main chord progression on my keyboard first. After finding the right flow, I moved on to creating the basslines and adding more melodic elements. 

At this point, I knew the direction I was heading with the track and I could picture a beautiful and angelic female vocal. But not just a sample, I wanted to record with an artist so it has a real authentic touch to it and really comes from the heart. 

I reached out to my friend Alaska Hilton to see if she would be keen to feature on the track, as she has a very unique voice and it was the perfect fit. Within 2 days she had already written the lyrics, recorded the verses and sent me the audio – it was like clock work. 

Once I had the arrangement done and all the tiny details of the track all glued together, I could feel the track was ready for the world.
