Courtesy of Marvel and Kutcorners, comes a special remix dedication to Ashanti‘s hit single “Only U” off of 2004’s Concrete Rose. The Vancouver-based production duo has recently started to operate under their remix and stage alias Live†Evil, which boasts a darker sonic direction for their collaborations. Along with the remix, the pair sends out following words.
Live†Evil is the new production/performance project for us. We wanted a definite identity for our productions and live sets which we started as The Freshest. We are focusing on a darker, brooding sound so we chose to remix Ashanti’s “Only U” as it felt like a good pairing for our new musical direction. Taking cues from the original but updating it for club play was our goal. We stripped all the original instrumentation and chopped up the vocal to create some new melody and built up the low end to really make it slap.
