Backw4rds – “I Like It” single
“‘I Like It’ recreates the typical ‘80s music feeling while pushing the listener with a tight house rhythm. The bassline is inspired by Modern Talking. The synth-sound is created with a Fairlight CMI, a synth that shaped the ‘80s pop sound.” – Backw4rds stated
‘I Like It’ contains a relatable storyline, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the dancefloor-ready tune possesses rhythmic instrumentation flavored with an old-school house and modern dance elements. Furthermore, “I Like It” serves as a great introduction to what listeners can expect to hear from Backw4rds in the near future.
“Everybody knows how it feels when you meet a person and immediately feel attracted. But there is something between you, something between arrogance and pretended uninterest. ‘I Like It’ covers this moment.” – Backw4rds
Backw4rds is mostly inspired by house music and artists like Jax Jones and Calvin Harris. Also, he takes inspiration from the late ‘80s and Cologne-carnival music.

“Can’t pretend I don’t like what you do. I keep fighting with myself, I see you looking well. So, I drink with my friends. Can’t stop thinking about your big Benz.” – lyrics
