Working with Smash & Aries and James Dee
The track “Doet voor Love” was another great collab in 2019 for Bennie Mellies. Smash and Aries who are good friends of Bennie reached out to while they heard the beat “Sappig” produced by Bennie. Smash followed up with Bennie to see if the track could be adjusted in both BPM and structure to fit the lyrics that he wrote for James Dee. James Dee is an upcoming artist in the Dutch Urban scene. She allready did another track with Smash & Aries for the Dutch TV program “Het Spijt Me” where their song was featured as title song. Nevertheless the tv station RTL4 decided to go with the old tune from Anita Meijer again after a poll on the internet. But the track “Het Spijt Me” by James Dee gained a lot of views and attention.
Releasing Doet voor Love
After working on the track together for a while, we finally had the end production. This was send over to a professional engineer (Paul Laffree) who helped us out mastering and mixing the track for radio quality. In the meantime Smash & Aries were also working on a professional videoclip for “Doet voor Love“. The track has a nice summer vibe and some great reggaeton/bubbling elements.
