Cash Cash Blur The Lines Between Rock and EDM (Recap)
"We were a group around 2008 with live instruments but still very electronic with synths. We slowly evolved and got rid of the drums, got rid of the guitars and focused on being producers for a minute. It's cool that producers can be artists again thanks to guys like Calvin Harris," said Makhlouf.
As their style evolved from a rock sound to EDM, things didn't all happen overnight for Cash Cash. "You got to be out there on the front lines, you can't just be sitting in your basement, you got to be out there playing gigs and you got to see what works in the clubs. A lot of times you'll do something in the studio and you'll think it sounds good and then you play it in the club and there's no reaction," said Makhlouf.
Their song "Take Me Home" was, however, a hit within four months of being released and took a lot less time to create. "That one came together really quick, we met up with Bebe, we come from the same community with a lot of the same friends. Real quick, two days, Boom! It sounded good right out the gate," said Makhlouf. - more on this story
