Tiësto and KSHMR released the project file for the drop in their track “Secrets ft. Vassy” on Splice!
The creation of Secrets began with Vassy’s chorus, sung over nothing but a simple chord progression. I knew the vocal was special and I spent almost a year trying different layouts, drops, etc. It was good but not yet exciting enough for an official release. Some time had passed when I woke up to an e-mail from Jorn from Spinnin’ telling me Tiësto had heard the demo and liked it. We passed ideas back and forth until the song was in a place where we both loved it. It was originally titled “Stay A While” but, coincidentally, he had just released a remix by the same name. So, we decided to go with “Secrets.” It went on to become the biggest record of my career, and a huge milestone having collaborated with a legend of the genre. I’m thankful. Respect to Tiësto and all aspiring producers. Hopefully this project will be of some benefit to you. -KSHMR
