CID Talks Grammy Nomination & Remixing LSD’s “Audio” [INTERVIEW]

CID is up for a Grammy Award this yr, which is the final word form of recognition within the music business. The work he did for LSD (Labrinth, Sia & Diplo) within the type of his “Audio” remix really showcases dance music at its best.

Speaking with CID in regards to the remix undertaking, he feels “fortunate” to have been capable of rework “Audio.” It’s straightforward to listen to — the observe he ready is dance ground prepared and excellent for on a regular basis listening, two enormous components he considers when remixing any observe.

Here’s what he needed to say in regards to the Grammy nod and his work on the remix…

On first listening to “Audio” by LSD…

First of all of the undertaking I believe is wonderful. Sia is an unbelievable singer. Labrinth is — they’re each unbelievable songwriters. Labrinth can be a loopy producer. Then, you throw Diplo in there and it’s the final word artist undertaking. Right away, even earlier than I bought the nomination I’d have liked to do a remix.

On remixing LSD…

It was really easy to work with their vocals. You might put something behind Sia’s vocal and it’ll sound wonderful! [laughs] It wasn’t too tough to get the thought. I really like what they did on the unique. For me, it was about taking the essence of what they’d carried out and placing my spin on it.

On essentially the most difficult a part of the remix…

The tempo. For this one, I did one thing that I’ve by no means actually carried out earlier than. The authentic track is fairly gradual. The first model I did — I did the entire thing at 124 bpm. I believe Diplo heard the primary demo I despatched. He stated, “Slow the whole thing down. The verse is too fast.” So, you’ll be able to’t actually discover it, however I’m altering the tempo. The verses are possibly 118 and when it will get to the pre-chorus then the refrain it begins rushing up actually slowly, and the drop is round 124. That was difficult, attempting to hurry up with out anybody noticing. It most likely threw off a whole lot of DJs. If any DJ performed it and blended over — there’d be a whole lot of prepare wrecking occurring.

On his earlier Grammy win in 2014…

I gained a Grammy for my work on Cedric Gervais’ Lana Del Rey remix. I’d been working with Cedric for a few years on the time. He’s an unbelievable producer and I used to be tremendous grateful to be part of that remix. I don’t suppose any of us realized what it might flip into. It was unbelievable to see how large that track was capable of get. It was very sensible placing it via the membership system. He did the entire Beatport factor and it did rather well there. I believe Interscope took a shot on it and pushed to radio and it took off. The Grammys was one of the loopy experiences to be part of. It form of gave me an inside take a look at how issues develop alongside the best way. For me, being on the Grammys was a kind of psychological pictures — like, that is what it takes.

It’s nice to be coming again and doing it alone. Obviously, my title is on this one. I’m simply nominated now — that alone is simply loopy to me, to suppose again at how far I’ve come. It’s simply superior to be going again there.

On making a very good remix…

I’ve form of been doing two totally different types. The one, I’m making it strictly for the dance ground. But, I believe those that make nice remixes are those that you could go on Spotify in your home or in your automotive and simply hearken to. But, on the similar time, you might play them within the membership. That’s the candy spot! If you may make it listenable and efficient in your set, I believe these are the perfect remixes. 

CID’s final objective with this remix and all the pieces he creates — “I want people to be happy.”
