Speaking with Billboard, the DJ (real name Jordan Roseman) said that he's noticed that there's an increasing wave of adult contemporary pop music taking over the charts.
"I try to get a feel of what is in the zeitgeist," he told the outlet of his process. "Music has been going through a softer phase than it was a few years ago so there's that return of adult contemporary. That's maybe represented by the Ellie Goulding track, it's very lush and soft. And then there's sort of retro, uptempo dance stuff, and that's represented by The Weeknd track."
