Singled Out: Deep Forest's Tiko

Today Eric Mouquet of Deep Forest tells us about the song "Tiko" from their brand new album "Deep Africa," which was released this week. Here is the story:

I was working in the studio with Blick Bassy, preparing the recording session and the sounds of the synth to get started. Blick was warming up his vocal chords in the a corner when suddenly and almost sublimely i heard his voice singing the melody, he was improvising without realising I was making note and creating the harmony I was hearing. This is how "Tiko" was born a sweet melody with a little melancholy feel. During the recording of the track, Alune Wade the bass player sung an incredible line towards the end which gives a real boost to the song, right away i had the inspiration to add some dubstep sounds.....an intriguing and attractive mix in this song which combine traditional vocals and dark electronic, in fact it's all I like an unlikely mixture.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
