Skytech Collides with LILO and Cappa for Cover of BANKS’s Hit Song “Beggin For Thread.” Out Now on CYB3RPVNK

by

CYB3RPVNK veteran Skytech returns to R3HAB‘s label with his rendition of BANKS‘s hit “Beggin For Thread,” an energetic and big-room influenced gem produced in collaboration with South Korea-born, Sweden-based master of covers and reworks LILO and LA-based singer/songwriter Cappa, whose past collaborations include working with SNBRNJustin CarusoTELYKast, and more. Riding on a deep, groovy bassline with a steady buildup, Skytech brings his dancefloor-friendly style to the indie classic while preserving the original’s emotive vocals. “Beggin For Thread” follows Skytech‘s recent single “Scrolling Up” with Fafaq as All That MTRS, as well as his remix for R3HABLuis Fonsi, and Sean Paul‘s “Pues.” LILO is known for his official covers of Kylie Minogue‘s “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” and Milky Chance‘s smash hit “Stolen Dance.” See below for what the artists had to say about making their “Beggin For Thread” cover:

BANKS‘s original song “Beggin For Thread” was one of my personal anthems of 2014, so when I first heard LILO‘s electronic demo version, I immediately fell in love with it, and I had to jump on it to finish the production. The process was a lot of fun, and I believe I added some Skytech flavor to it.” – Skytech.

I really enjoyed working with Skytech and Cappa on this beauty and hope to be working with them in the near future again. I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it. It’s an honor dropping this tune on one of my idol’s label!” – LILO

The process of working with Skytech and LILO was great. They already came up with the idea for the track. Since we’re located in different parts of the world, I went to the studio and laid the vocals with my engineer. We actually communicated a lot over Instagram. It was a fun process!” – Cappa

Mateusz Dziewulski, better known by his artist name Skytech – is already a household name in his home country of Poland, and the rest of the world is soon to follow. His name first appeared on the map when R3HAB discovered his original track “Tiger” and then helped Skytech put final production touches on it, proving to be a winning team after “Tiger” skyrocketed to over 100M streams on all platforms. Since then, the two have worked on numerous tracks together via the CYB3RPVNK imprint, such as “Fuego,” “What You Do,” “Hyperspace,” “Starflight,” and more, fusing their sounds to make music that is club and festival-friendly while never sacrificing substance and soul.

Electro-Pop Darling CAPPA Teases New EP

by

Carla Cappa, aka electro-pop darling CAPPA teases new EP with her debut singles “Change My Mind” and “There With You Baby“. The Philadelphia native shares a new video as she prepares for the drop of her next EP. The artist’s hypnotic vocals pair well with her sought-after songwriter skills and hit TV shows like Riverdale and Alone Together feature her music. Every track she works on creates dance worthy nights. Fans can anticipate the release of her feel-good EP this summer.

Cliché Mag: What was the inspiration behind “There With You Baby”?

CAPPA: “There With You Baby” is about going into a new relationship and knowing that it may be a bad idea. It could combust at any moment but you go for it regardless. 

What was the experience like creating your upcoming summer EP?

With my previous EPs, I’ve sad down and kind of laid out all of the songs, but I approached it a little differently on my upcoming EP. I basically just consistently wrote songs over the course of 6 months and then picked my favorites. I liked this process a lot better. It felt a lot less contrived. I just put out the songs that I like now.

Talk about your songwriting process.

I usually start with a concept or idea and bring it into a session. Then, the producer will start a track idea and we’ll go from there. I usually bring a few reference song ideas into it so we have an idea as to what to aim for.

How have you changed as an artist since your breakout song “Hush” in 2015?

I didn’t really know what I was doing back then but I kind of liked it better. I just made songs with my friends because it was fun. I think the music industry is just a mess right now as it’s so overly saturated. Back then it was just easier to make music with friends and have it gain traction. Now it takes much more than a song just being good — do you have a label? Money to promote the project? Know people at streaming services? It’s just a whole trickier and sketchier ball game!

Who would most like to work with on a new track?

Pharrell Williams! 

What do you hope to accomplish this year that your fans can look forward to?

I was really hoping to get out and do small tours and shows. I’m not exactly sure what that will look like right now, but I would love to start actually meeting fans and playing live more. It may just be something that will have to wait until 2021 though!

How do you see the current state of the world impacting the music industry? Do you see it impacting your own work?

Yeah, it has definitely had an impact already. A lot of people are out of jobs. A lot of the stuff I had going on sort of went into a halt for a while. Very few industries weren’t affected by it. I’m just trying to maintain a positive attitude and know that the whole world is going through it together!

CAPPA Talks About Her New Music, Recent Move, and More

by

With her music featured in multiple television shows and advertisements, songwriter, CAPPA, has been making her mark in the music industry. Writing upbeat pop songs that you can dance to as well as appreciate the lyrics, her music brings something fresh to the pop scene. CAPPA answered some questions for Cliché about her recent move, her songwriting process, new music, and more. She also has her new single, “Sux,” debuting today.

 

Cliché: You had a relatively recent move from Nashville to Los Angeles. How has that been so far? Would you say the music scenes are similar or very different in the two cities?

It’s been amazing, actually! I’m really happy about the move. I was very skeptical moving because I had heard the music scene in LA was a lot more cut throat, but I love it. Everyone’s been awesome and I feel much more inspired here than I have in a while.

Nashville has a cool pop scene coming about. It’s just a totally different vibe all around. It’s much smaller than LA’s scene which is much more fast paced.

 

I’ve read that your song, “Waste My time,” released back in 2017, was the first single you had released after over a year of not feeling very musically inspired. Can you talk about how you came back from that? What was it that got you feeling inspired again and wanting to release new music?

I wasn’t sure what style I wanted to do for a little bit. I was uninspired by a lot of pop music at the time and tried some other styles but they felt contrived. “Waste My Time” was the first song that I did that I felt like was cool and different than a lot of what I was hearing. I always want to release new music, so sometimes there is just a lot of pressure to get a good song right away- sometimes it takes a little while to get the right song.

 

Can you describe your songwriting process? How does it all come together for you?

I typically either start a basic idea on piano or start with a producer in a room, just depending on the song and what I am going for. Every time is a little bit different but it typically always starts with melody because that is my favorite part. Once I have melodies I like, the rest comes pretty naturally.

 

What is your favorite song to perform live at the moment? Why?

I like performing my most recent single “Tension” just because it is so fun and people seem to really respond to it when I am playing it, so that always makes it 10x better.

I’ve come across a few of your covers, and they all have your distinct style on them. I think it’s great the way you make the songs your own while respecting the original. What’s your favorite cover that you’ve done so far? What is it about the songs that you’ve covered that made you want to record them?

Thank you! I really like the “No Scrubs” cover just because it was and is one of my all time favorite songs. It’s just a good jam; I grew up singing it. I was just really surprised people liked it at the time. I thought it was a little bit cheesy but was just doing it because I loved the song so much.

 

Your songs have been synched in ads for huge companies such as Victoria’s Secret, Bumble, and Under Armor, and films/television shows like Netflix’s, “Set it Up,” and Freeform’s, “The Bold Type”. How would you say that type of exposure has helped in growing your fan base?

It’s been so awesome. One of my dreams has always been to hear my songs on tv and be caught off guard that it was me. I was napping on a friends couch the other week and heard my song in a commercial and I woke up out of a dead sleep and was like “THAT’S MY SONG.” It’s a great feeling.

 

You’re new single, “Sux,” coming out November 30th, is such a fun and catchy song with lyrics about something not exactly fun. It’s such a great contrast! What was your inspiration behind it?

Yeah, it’s definitely not the happiest topic. The song was about a recent relationship of mine where I got broken up with my over the phone about a month or two into moving to LA. It was really nice to write honest lyrics about the situation and gave me an outlet to put some of it behind me. Even though it’s about a break up, I wanted it to feel more badass and not sound like it was coming from a weak place but more of an empowering stance.

 

What else can listeners expect from you in the near future?

There will be a remix of “Sux,” then a few more singles and an EP in the near future 🙂
