Deorro Finds Freedom in the Music on 'Wild Like the Wind': Exclusive

Alexi Papalexopoulos


Whatever you do today, good or bad, sets you up for tomorrow, and on "Wild Like the Wind" by Deorro, our female vocalist finds herself wrapped up in a lifestyle of vice and daring. It could be scary, sure, but she sounds kind of free, and that soulful independence inspired the Los Angeles producer to get creative in the studio.

"As soon as I got the vocal for this track, I immediately fell in love with it," Deorro tells Billboard Dance. "I picked up my cello, started plucking it and sampled a lot of the sounds I recorded. I was also messing around with a brand new pack I was obsessed with (shout out KSHMR) and let the track take shape on its own from there."

That frontier mentality translates into a powerful tune that pushes the listener toward their own fate. It's the perfect, gritty soundtrack of the first steps toward the rest of you life. "Wild Like the Wind" is out everywhere Friday, but you can kick your heels up and leave your fears in the dust with its sonic dose of hard spine a day early, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
