Charlotte, Enrico, congratulations on your new Beatport number one with your “Age of Love” remix. Did you already have a chance to celebrate the news?

Hey, thank you! We’ve been celebrating this remix constantly since the moment we knew we could release it on the original label! It’s a track that means a lot for the both of us so to get the stamp of approval on a contemporary twist was just fantastic!

This is the first time that you are releasing a track together. Was it clear from the start that you would collaborate on this remix? How was the process?

It was the first track that popped in our minds when we thought about a meaningful collab that would connect both our backgrounds. We ended up in lockdown together from March 2020, so suddenly, we had a lot of time to spend together, and it turned out to be very fun to work together in the studio.

“Age of Love” is an Italian trance classic from 1990. Since then, it has been remixed a number of times by artists such as Jam & Spoon, Paul van Dyk and Solomun. What made you want to remix this track in particular?

It’s a timeless masterpiece that connects both our cultures and backgrounds. The magic of the original Italian production reaches its peak through Jam & Spoon’s rework on Belgian Diki record label, so it’s a story that we both felt closely related to. Our intention wasn’t to top any previous version but to respect it by giving it a contemporary twist we would use in our sets.

This might be difficult to answer, but is there a certain element or feeling that you particularly like in each other’s records (or DJing)?

Enrico: “I like Charly’s direct way to get where she wants to bring you, she knows exactly where. Essential and straight to the point.”

Charlotte: “Enrico is a much more advanced producer than me in the studio, and how detailed and layered he works taught me a lot, and it’s very inspiring to me.”

You’ve been very busy at a time when you couldn’t play in front of live audiences. What are some of the things you could do during lockdown that maybe otherwise you wouldn’t have the time to pursue?

We tried to keep the connection with the fans and the scene by offering livestreams and releasing music. In a time where everything is disconnected and not physical, it felt more important than ever to keep the interaction alive. Nothing will ever compare to being in front of a crowd and surrounded by the people we love but sadly, during the past 18 months, that did not seem to be possible. We did all we could we the limited resources we had.

Do you have any more tracks that you worked on together waiting to be released?

No, but…
