Cassie - Me & U (Achaziyah's Hi-Draulic Bed Rockin' Rendez-vous) by Achaziyah The Alien published on 2012/05/23 01:55:43 +0000 With Cassie’s “Me & U”, I desired to reconstruct the message of the song to something more direct, and just so ironically, a directed message emerged with the trimming of lyrics, broadening of the beat, and a rounding of the melody. Originally, this song was going to be a mere alternate ending to “Hi-Draulics”, but that soon changed because the sudden key change that would’ve been in Hi-Draulics wasn’t befitting of the mood of the song, and the consistency would’ve been broken. Since the part was in C-minor, it occurred to me to slow the tempo of the part down to the natural sultry nature of c and put a wider beat on top of it. From there, the alternate ending turned into an alternate mix. Writhing, yearning, and winding in a constant state of sexual potential energy, this bed rocker is meant to penetrate your mind before anything else. The stage gets set, and a slow build is made toward a revealed scene of the bed rocking at 1:27, slamming straight into the vocal. The suspended cymbal makes things a little tidier, revealing the chillout/jazz influence of the piece. A kamasutra-styled percussion break lands at 2:25, symbolizing a sequence of events that are frequently only carried out in your imagination. A sauntering, quasi-disco tempo is released at 4:28. Momentum builds into a solstice of energy from 4:37 to 4:54, until the return of the beat at 5:15. Looking for a theme song that is almost as thirsty as you are? No problem. Step on up and get supplied. The melody will respond to your every stimulus, quivering in anticipation and expertise, and ending in a frothy explosion of colour and orgasm. Join us for a spell, for we promise that you’ll never regret it.
