DJcity remixer DJ Valid has been releasing tracks under the name HUNDRD PCT, a side project made to explore the soulful side of house music. One of the latest releases from the project is his remix of Ashanti‘s 2004 hit “Only U.”
“I enjoy playing older R&B flipped into house remixes lately,” HUNDRD PTC says. “I felt this song could use an updated remix to fit in my sets. The horns started out as the main drop but I felt it needed something a little different. Now that most club venues are fully open, hopefully DJs enjoy this one and drop it this summer!”

UK-based DJ/producer Freejak has flipped Fat Joe and Ashanti‘s 2002 collaboration “What’s Luv,” exclusively for DJcity. Upon its release, the song reached number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and was Fat Joe’s first-ever top-ten pop single.
Freejak’s ability to concentrate on the most house-friendly elements of this track allows it to excel as a remix. Ashanti’s vocal, as well as the 8-bit style synths in the track’s melody are highlighted. The bottom end’s original rap breaks are replaced by quicker-paced, house-style, four-on-the-floor percussion.
Freejak notes: “’What’s Luv’ is such a feel-good track. And I think we all need a bit of feel-good these days. My task was just to purely open up this classic to the dance music community. As always I hope this puts a smile on someone’s face and can get a head or two bobbing.”

“[It] is a song that’s still included in many DJ’s tracklists because it’s a timeless throwback,” Richastic says. “It was time for a new version that gives it a brand new edge!”
