Where are you currently based?
What’s been happening recently and how has your Covid experience been?
Not a lot, sitting poolside sipping martini’s. Laying low trying to bliss out in the sun. Iso was amazing! We aren’t ready to go back yet.
How did VINNY form?
We were deep in a session at an underground disco church. When out of nowhere a 7 foot gorgeous man laced in a tailor disco ball suit approached us and offered us the job. We then spent 4 years at a secret Island in VIN-CAMP learning all the ways of VINNY. Once graduating from VIN-CAMP we were placed back at the same underground disco church which is now a Chinese take-away restaurant and we’ve been following the way of VINNY ever since.
Your new single ‘Fire’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?
We wanted a dance floor banger. Something that makes you want to move and feel good. At the time we were listening to a lot of 70’s disco and rock n roll. From Janis Ian, Barry white & Rick James to INXS, stones & The Clash. the song by sunrise.”
How did Fire come about?
We had this groove and feeling in our bones. We were lying poolside sipping pina coladas, watching the sun go down when out of nowhere, a topless, coconut-oiled man walked past us down to the beach playing his saxophone, shooting fire out of the bell (thus the name, ‘Fire’). We befriended him and asked if he would come into the studio that night to help us finish off the track. We worked throughout the night and finished the song by sunrise.
Where and when did you record/produce/master and who did you work with?
We recorded Fire in a secluded island off the Bahamas! We worked with Alex Markwell & Alex Gopher. Massive love to the whole team.
How did you approach the recording process?
We just went in and got it done. Good vibes, good food & booze. A very relaxing and exciting experience.
