Otto Orlandi: Honing His Craft
Otto Orlandi joined us to celebrate his new track “Volcano” as we got a better understanding of what drives the rising Italian producer. He discussed his work with legendary songwriter Curtis Richa, star vocalist Melanie Fontana, and the show that’s most inspired his dance music productions.
You’ve successfully experimented and produced in many genres, so what was the initial inspiration and vision for the production that became “Volcano”?
“Volcano” was not the product of a random moment of musical inspiration: with this song, I had a clear vision in my mind. I wanted to release this tune around the end of June/beginning of July. People are then getting tired of work and they are starting to get ready for summer. I wanted “Volcano” to be the tune that puts people in a good mood and gives them a little taste of the summer about to come.
