The topline of Takeaway is amazing which made this remix very straightforward. My initial vision was an upbeat, electro-pop remix akin artists like Kasbo, Kidswaste and Jai Wolf.
Midway through the announcement of Sulli's passing really affected me and the song took a melancholy turn. The lyrics took on a different meaning especially the line "before I leave you.. I'll break your heart so you won't break mine". I wanted to create a musical bed that brought to life my lyrical interpretation hence the acoustic chorus and reverberant outro. For the drop, I was really inspired by FX's song "Airplane". I listened to that song nonstop this week.
This week I realize this crazy musical journey of mine isn't mine at all. It's a culmination of everyone who inspired me and carried me to this point. As I continue forward, Sulli's inspiration on my music will continue to live on in my songs and in others. All the best and rest in peace my role model :').
