Released in late June, Sander van Doorn’s newest track “The World” was intended to be a sweet, soaring ballad. The finished product, however, turned into something much darker and clubbier.
So shared van Doorn during a recent Billboard Dance Instagram takeover. Taking us into his studio, the venerable Dutch producer explained how he first connected with fellow Dutch artists Lucas & Steve years ago during Miami Music Week, how they finally connected in the studio, took a pre-existing vocal and transformed it into a massive new anthem released via Spinnin’ and now being heard around “the world.”
“I showed them the vocal,” van Doorn says in the clip, “and they really loved the idea and they had tons of ideas to work on, so we started messing about in the studio, and before we knew it, ‘The World’ came out.”
