In a move that's sure to result in overjoyed DJs and salty bloggers, Pharrell has mentioned to MTV that many of his upcoming productions - including the next Twista single, "Give It Up" - will be taking inspiration from Baltimore Club music. The Neptunes have danced around the sound before (Pharrell's club-heavy soundtracks for Louis Vuitton runway shows, Chad's remixes), but Skateboard P is making it sound like he's about to get full-on uptempo. "I wanted to give my own interpretation of it, which is a little bit of Miami, a little bit of Baltimore house," he explained. "The way I'm doing it don't sound like B-More and don't sound like Miami. It just kind of [has] a lot of the remnants of the sounds of the things that I would use ... arranged with the mentality of the B-More stuff but with the low end of Miami. It's cool."
