“We had met and known Melika for a little while in NYC and had gone seen her perform in a few different coffee shops in BK. We all decided to get together one day and listen to a few different beats. Melika had just met someone and that’s always the best time for someone to write a love song. She wrote it in a matter of hours and that was pretty much it. A few weeks later we went to record and she revealed that she had added a little Spanish part and that pretty much solidified the song as it is now.”

Sydney attributes her love for music from her mom, who insisted on playing The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes rather than Kiss FM whenever she drove carpool and agreed to allow Sydney to attend Coachella in the eighth grade as long as she could go with her. That first festival only greater affirmed Sydney’s passion for the scene, but it was not until 2013 when she attended Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour concert in Los Angeles that she discovered electronic music. She was hooked instantly and has since attended a total of 23 festivals, with countless concerts in between. Sydney’s favorite artists include RL Grime, Jauz, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, Slander, Bearson and Big Gigantic but she is constantly on the look out for new music and artists to dance to. When she’s not scouring the internet for new tracks or grooving at a concert, Sydney studies Journalism and Biology full-time at the University of Oregon.


  1. Hi! I directed this video and got left out of the article

    After we did the shoot with Mike, all the footage had to be motion-tracked and then camera-solved. Solving is a process where the computer can make an accurate guess as to where the camera exists in a 3-dimensional space by analyzing tracking points that are applied to the raw footage. 3D Software is then used to re-construct the environment, and a healthy dose of displacement maps and fun visual effects complete the “trippy lyrical backdrop” that Sydney describes so eloquently.
