This is a remix of Nikki’s Cantik and Pretty Like Me combined. It’s not a mashup although it samples heavily from the song it was based on as Audi mentioned in his blog entry. It’s also bilingual so it’s guaranteed NOT to get any airplay and like Selamat Tinggal Genie, I’ve also kept to the album’s production rule of not using a crash cymbal at all on this remix.
I had tremendous fun doing this remix. So much so that I got caught playing the air guitar and air drums a couple of times during the making of it. As dorky as it can be, it sure beats hitting keys and drumpads anytime, especially on days when you really need to get it out of your system. Props to Nikki, Audi and Mr. Manager for their guidance and blessings for me to do this.
If you like this remix, go buy Nikki’s sophomore album Hawa, out in stores now where you can hear the tracks in their original state before I mangled them.
