Luka, Mattia and Simone, congratulations on a new Beatport number one with your edit of GENESI’s “Everything You Have Done.” How are you?

We’re busy, and this is a good sign. We’re working on a lot of new things and different project like Aeterna, our own label where we are going to release some club stuff from us and some young talented producers in Italy and outside our country. Then we’re working on the next radio single, on Odizzea of course, our live show. We’re working on a 2.0 edit and then festivals, club shows etc.

You call your version of the track an edit, not a remix. What is the difference to you, and in what ways have you edited the original version?

Remix is when you take parts of the original and you completely change the mood and the vibe of the track making something completely different from the original, the demo we got from GENESI was more or less ready for the release. We’ve been playing this one for almost seven to eight months, working with him trying to add that 20 percent more. We’re talking about a few tweaks, arrangement cut and mix and master, nothing more, that’s why we called it edit.

GENESI is a newcomer from Italy. How did you find him and can you tell us a bit more about him?

We’ve been good friends with him for 15 years, and we’ve been working together on a few projects before Meduza. It was the right time with this track to launch his own career, as we think he’s one of the most talented electronic producers out there right now.

This is the first release of your new label Aeterna. Why did you start a new label, and what are your plans for it?

Everybody when they hear Meduza thinks about our radio songs, and it’s pretty much correct, but we’re not just that. We’re DJs, we’re producers, and we’ve been living the nightlife playing as resident DJs in Milan and Como for many years. We have a club soul and we needed a place where we are free to release pure club stuff and experiment new sounds and new stuff. At the same time, we didn’t want to have rules to follow as if you want to send a track to someone else’s label you need to fit they’re style and wait for their schedule. With Aeterna, we’re free to release whatever we want whenever we want.

You asked your fans on social media which track they would like to see first released, offering snippets of them. Do you already know which one to put out next?

Yes, “Upside Down” is going to be the next release. It’s got a more melodic vibe than the GENESI’s one, but we’ve been testing this one a few times, and every time it was able to create a special moment in the set no matter if it was a festival or club show. We already have planned and are ready to go with five or six additional releases this year on Aeterna.
