“Remixes are hard, because some of my critics will be like, ‘Trav, you shoulda gone bananas on it,’ but going bananas on it will sometimes take away from how cool a song is — it’s a happy medium,” he laughed. “With this one, I see a gradual crescendo — it just gets bigger and bigger and bigger, all the way up until the last chorus, where I crash out and there’s a big Phil Collins moment, with a drum-fill solo underneath Drake’s chorus. It was a tough one, man.”
So is Drake happy with the end result? Barker has no idea — seems Drizzy hasn’t even heard the remix yet. No one has. Until now, that is.
“No one’s heard this!” Barker said. “Actually, Marshall [Mathers, a.k.a. Eminem] heard it, and he loved it — but no one else has.”
Here’s the CDQ!!
