RMXTP2 Liner Notes: "Love Me Right"

Goapele is one of the dopest artists here in the Bay. She's also someone that people recognize outside of the Bay. Tap and I had a chance to get an exclusive tour of Skyblaze's new, Top Secret Oakland facility. The plans for the studio were pretty amazing. It will definitely be a driving force in the production of quality music here in Oakland. I can't wait to get a chance to do some work up in there...

When I decided to remix this track, I wanted to bring it over 100% into my zone, change the feel of the whole song.

The original track is real organic and pretty lighthearted.
The remix is real synthetic and a tad bit emotional.

I decided to make it more "serious", like she's begging for dude's attention. I wanted it to sound like she was super infatuated, the type of girl who loves quick and passionate. In love in one week, out the next. To me, the passion in the sound conjures up visions of someone so lustful it hurts. Think of Prince in his basement apartment with Apollonia, backwards crying in the tape deck right before they get it on. You can cut the lust in the air with a spoon ("... because it's DULL you twit... it'll hurt more!"). And sometimes Passion and Pain go hand in hand.

Of course, I could be reading into it too much... Maybe it just sounds nice.

Either way it goes... It Goes!

Oh Yeah. To all the SUCKA DJs: The beginning of this track on the [Re]Mixtape Vol. 2 is the reason why DJ Tap.10 is a GENIUS. Period.

Please do your homework.

Hmmm... Feels like De Ja Vu..
