Armand Van Helden, "Necessary Evil"
I grew up in the house realm and when you get success in an underground genre (which it was at the time) then your underground following shuns you away, which is fine – it's the norm in any type of music. But the intent of "Necessary Evil" – which is funny, because it's in the title – was to go, "Hey, anybody can do these underground tracks" because they're just so, like, underground and easy to make. Pop, whether people want to admit it or not, is not easy music to make. You have to be quite efficient as a producer to make a great pop song.
I just basically threw up this beat kind of quickly and then I put up a sound effect of a saw sawing wood, and chaos ensues from that point. And that's it.
