“One track. Two different vibes. The symbiotic contrast between the beautiful melodies and the darkness surrounding the synths and basslines. Mesmerizing vocals. Countless sensations.”
This is what defines my brand new single Honey Trap. With this track, my goal is to reinforce my artistic identity, in an attempt to enter another orbit of creativity and to break the rules that existed before, in order to elevate even more the Melodark – that many of you already know as my musical style.
Let’s dig into it so you can have a better understanding about the backgrounds of this song.
WHERE DOES THE TITLE AND ARTWORK COME FROM?
Inspiration can come literally from anywhere. I remember that the day before I started producing this track, I was watching a documentary series – Spycraft – that talked about a spy stratagem in which an attractive person entices another person into revealing information or doing something unwise, called “honey trap”. I guess I liked the term and said to myself that one day I would produce a track with that name, inspired by this spy technique. At some point, I say in the song “I surrendered to your beauty, in my naïveté. And I fell, on the honey trap”. That sentence is the literal explanation of this song’s artwork, where someone seduce me to get something from me. In this case, something very important like my mask. Therefore, I fell into the honey trap.
Honey Trap was one of those tracks that I didn’t need to think too much to put the idea into the DAW. It flowed very naturally. If I remember correctly, I was producing another track when I decided to take a break and I started playing some notes on the piano I had in my old apartment. Something sounded right in my head and I went to the studio to develop the melody. I felt the muse. Then I remembered the documentary I saw the night before and came up with the idea for the vocals. From there, I think it took me about a week to finish the song. Usually when I spend a long time producing one track, I start having doubts and second thoughts about whether the track is really good or not. For a perfectionist like me, finishing Honey Trap was one of those rare moments where I actually felt really happy with what I had created.
Despite Honey Trap only being released on February 25th, it’s been almost a year since I produced this track. To be honest, there’s no reason why it took so long to release it. Somehow, it was good because during this whole time, a huge hype was created around this song, since I first performed it on my Quarantine Mix 3 recorded in April of 2021. For that reason, I know that many of you already know the song very well. Now you will finally be able to listen to the full version on streaming platforms. I leave you the link below. Hear it, feel it, share it with your friends and on social media. In these times of chaos, pandemic and war that we are experiencing around the world, these small gestures of support, gratitude and love are more important than ever. Be the best &
