The 'Backlash': Interview With DubVision | TURN UP THE BASS

Dutch DJ/producers DubVision, Steve Leicher & Victor Leicher, are known for their elegant melodies and collaborations with Sander van Doorn, Firebeatz, Project 46, and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano. We caught up with the brotherly duo for a chat about past & upcoming music and more, check it out!

The single “Rockin’” with Firebeatz uses an old school sample, how did that idea come about?

First there was a different vocal on it but then a record came out with the same exact vocal which was so rare because it was a very old disco song.  We had to replace it so we searched for so long and we came up with that.  We needed something catchy, samply, and old school. That sample was just reused once before by Till West & DJ Delicious a while ago on “Same Man” but we rerecorded the sample for “Rockin.’”

Being brothers what are some of the advantages and disadvantages of having your brother as your music partner?  

The advantages are that we know each other really well.  When we are in the studio we really compliment each other and we can bounce ideas off each other.  If you are stuck on something and you are alone and you don’t know what to do, you always have the opinion of your team mate which is good.  But it’s also different when you’re working with another artist and you don’t know each other that well.  You are different artists at the end of the day so if you are a good artist you always work for your own interests.  With us we have the same interests like making DubVision our brand and making it big.  We have the same mindset because we are brothers and musically because we learned piano with the same teacher.  We also have another middle brother who makes techno music.  The disadvantages, I think all brothers argue with each other and get irritated easily, that happens sometimes.

Not on stage though right?

Sometimes.  We’ve had moments where it’s like “no no don’t play that song” or “don’t touch that button,” but usually it works out really well.

Weirdest or craziest thing that’s happened to you guys this year?

When we went to India it was really crazy because it was like we were Madonna or something.  For us it was crazy because we had so many guards around us to keep people away.  We had like ten guards keeping a circle, making a radius of ten meters around us.  We even had people running up to the car – it was an awesome crazy.
