Get ‘Lost’ with VASSY

[Exclusive Interview]

by Michael Beas

Vassy Karagiorgos, known professionally as Vassy (frequently stylised as VASSY), is an Australian singer, songwriter, and producer. For those of you that don’t know VASSY has won the song of the year for her single  single “We Are Young” that reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Dane Chart. That made her the official and first Australian Artist to go No. 1 with her solo single debut release. She is a certified RIAA Platinum and Gold recording artist and she hasn’t stopped since then. She is currently one of the leading vocalists in the world. After breaking into the Spotify viral charts in five countries and hitting #4 on Beatport in its first week, ‘LOST’ has now accumulated over 3 million combined streams. Released by Armada Music, her new single “LOST” is made in collaboration with Dutch star Afrojack and Amsterdam-based producer Oliver Rosa, and may just require all three to clear some space in their respective trophy rooms. Michael Beas of Raver Magazine had an opportunity to talk to VASSY after a performance in LA, this is what she shared up with us…

You’re always working with the biggest names in dance music. This time around its with none other then Afrojack. What was it like working with him on this project?
VASSY
He’s cool talented producer & Dj…. hes open to ideas too so easy to work with…
Raver Mag. 
The lyrics on your new track ‘Lost’ are profound and deep; for myself it hits home on many levels. What does this song mean to you and what message do you hope it conveys to those who listen to it.

VASSY
Its about getting lost in love or lost to find love but more about how you lose yourself at times when u fall in love…..its a good and bad thing at times… but it can be intoxicating and sometimes u can induce the pleasure in the pain chaos of it.
Raver Mag. 
You’ve worked with a number of different labels, what was the experience like working this time with Armada Music?
VASSY
They are a great label very pro and personable awesome team and all eat lunch together at work in their very cool canteen downstairs where they have the best food ….i enjoyed having lunch with all 250 of them lol

Speaking of Armada, I noticed on your social media that you had some studio time with Armin van Buuren when he was in LA. What if anything is in the works with him the near future?
VASSY

Raver Mag. 
You’re one of the most sought out vocalists in the world today. What do you feel is your biggest challenge as a vocalist and how do you overcome that challenge?
VASSY 
Saying no to collabs lol … i luv so many Djs & they are always wanting to do a record with me so we can compliment each other but sometimes i want to focus on me… but its just hard to say no cos i luv so many of them 😉
