Q&A: Rising Duo Billen Ted Drop Groovy Beast ‘Satisfied’

UK production duo Billen Ted have recently unveiled their new single ‘Satisfied’, one that didn’t go unnoticed.. Centred around a sample from the Chaka Khan 1984 classic ‘I Feel For You’, ‘Satisfied’ is an infectious dance-pop jam, combining feel-good piano chords, euphoric vocals and a deep, bumping bass line.

Listen 'Satisfied' :

Drawing inspiration from one of the most iconic tracks from the 80s, ‘Satisfied’ is truly a floorfiller with serious crossover appeal. And if you want to know a bit more about the track – and this rising duo – check out our exclusive Interview just below!

Hey guys, welcome on Sidekick! Let’s begin with yourself, can you tell us a bit more about Billen Ted?

Heyyyy – thanks for having us! Billen Ted….we’re just a couple of party on dudes having a good time writing and producing music for us and others! We love heavy metal, snooker, golf and have an insatiable thirst for the sesh whilst trying to keep our lives intact. 

You’ve made a great impression with your brand new single ‘Satisfied’! What’s your recipe to cook these treats? Any inspirations?

Thanks! I think in general the Billen Ted project is taking influence from a lot of our idols such as Chaka Khan, lots of 80s acts and sonics but bringing it up to date with what is going on in the dance realm at the moment along with a whole lot of trial and error.
