Ever since we heard World Of Dreams for the first time we got hooked! Since its release, this banger has been on repeat at the Scantraxx office. We sat down with D-Block & S-te-Fan and Frontliner to talk about this highly anticipated collab, how they came up with it, what the production process was like, and much more.
This week, you guys released World Of Dreams, a long-awaited collab! How did you guys come up with the idea of World Of Dreams?
DBSTF: The track started under the project name: Perfect 10 and after that: The Sun. We came up with Perfect 10 because the first melody is not following the typical pattern that songs normally follow. It has a different way of counting. That's the reason why you also can't really mix over the first melody (why would you, that's why we made the second melody haha).
We are big fans of the early Frontliner songs with those typical melodies so we really wanted to add that to the second part of the track. After we had those we wrote the vocals. Stefan had the idea of using "Children of the Night" as a theme, and we just started adding meaning to that hook. And then World of Dreams was born!
Frontliner: We actually started our collaboration around 2016 after we did our first track together, Friction, together with Hard Driver. A few weeks after we finished Friction we came together for a new track. The very first version of this track was actually called ‘The Sun’. At some point, we left it for what it is for a while, but last year we finally picked it up again!
Can you tell us more about the production process? What is it like when three legends work together?
DBSTF: It was amazing to work with Barry, he is a talented producer and easy to work with. We just met up in the studio and created the first melody of the track. But then we started working on the Antidote album which were all solos and from there, our schedules were kind of hectic. So during COVID, we finally found the time to finish the song!
Frontliner: The fact that we both have been in the scene for such a long time and released so many tracks throughout our careers makes working on new tracks easier.
