You have to hear Drumma Boy's EDM remix of Usher and Young Thug's "No Limit"
The super-producer tells REVOLT why he thought the record could use a dance reworking.
Drumma Boy is synonymous with hot production. He’s worked with the likes of Gucci Mane, Usher, TI, Young Jeezy, Kanye, Waka Flocka, Wale, and plenty more. Obviously his schedule is jam packed with creating sounds for the hottest artists in the game, but at the end of the day he’s a musician and a creative at heart. When inspiration hits, he chases the feeling and gives the world true art in the form of sonic excellence. This time he came through with a remix to Usher & Young Thug’s hit song “No Limit,” but with a dance twist, along with fellow producer TRK MRK. It’s a different feel than what we’re used to from the Atlanta-based producer.
What inspired you to remix “No Limit” and move into the EDM sound?
DrummaBoy: I just wanted to showcase my diversity. This is one of my favorite tracks that I’ve heard from Usher. I’ve worked with him before and I’ve wanted to work with him again. Since he’s so busy and I’m so busy it’s been difficult to link up. I decided to remix the song to show the world what I can do on the EDM side. So many people love this format, I wanted to show how we could create the original music as well. I collaborated with my boy TRK MRK. We were in LA just messing around, we wanted to do something for the festivals. I think because of the depth of me being a musician, when I get bored these are things that I do. I follow my heart and go with those vibrations. I’m in LA just feeling the vibe and I make music around what I’m seeing and what I’m feeling. It was a must. I had to have the first remix. You have to beat people to the punch. Steve Aoki beat me to the punch on the “No Hands” remix and it was my record. It was all love and we both got paid!
What was the production process like?
DB: We were sitting together just vibing. He (TRK MRK) played around with the baseline on his computer and I did the same. There were different parts that we took from each other’s piece, we kept all the dope shit to come out with the final product.
What new projects do you have on the way?
DB: Miami, New York, and Vegas are booking me more as a DJ, and it’s just a blessing to be able to do that and give the fans what they want. I can’t wait to perform and do open format and be able to introduce this live to the people. Be on the lookout for work coming with Keyshia Cole; she has an incredible album coming. I’m executive producing Young Greatness’ project. New Young Jeezy coming, I got a couple records on Young Dolph and Black Youngsta.
That’s the beauty of creative energy. It’s an organic occurrence and once it hits anyone with the skills to translate that energy into something the world can consume, magic happens. According to Drumma Boy, the reception to the remix was crazy, with fans sharing their appreciation all over the timeline.
