I always use to visit an old friend just to keep good old friendships.Fabian Lenssen was my old neighbor since we were kids and we always kept in touch every now and then. We grew up in the center of Amsterdam as children who spent time on skateboards and listened to music.
I called him up again at his new studio to tell him I was coming over to say Hello.That day he was busy receiving guests and doing business. One of the guests in the studio was Dj R3hab.They had been doing a lot of productions together lately and were working every day devoting time to new projects. I didn't stay too long because it was a pretty hectic afternoon.
The old mini studio at home around 2008 Where i wrote SKYDROP
I gave him all the parts, and he took took care of the mastering and final EQ , and than he changed the position of the big break to an earlier position at the timeline, which was a good decision. I asked which record company was going to release it , and he said it was going to be on Tiesto’s label. How did that go I asked ? Well , Tiesto loved the track and wanted to release it , but the problem was his busy schedule ,
and he could not release it any time earlier than after 6 months Than R3hab says that is too late so the track will go to ULTRA in New York !
But Tiesto answered , WHAT ? WAIT ! NO ! If you are going to ULTRA , than I will change my entire schedule and will release the track right now this week ! Are we having the deal. ?
And so all agreed to have it released on Tiesto’s label without any months delay ! The track got picked up by a lot of deejays worldwide and was a success ! I never expected that old funky jam would end up doing so well in the clubs!,
I didn't have a name for the track untill i showed it in LA to my good friend Steve Castro,. He just saw the movie from James Bond - SkyFall. And he suggested i should call the track SKYDROP. ! And so the name of the track was born !
