Tiffin University’s a cappella group Up in the Air has been featured on “Two for the Money,” a new EP released by the international pop music production team The Dualists.
In 2012, Up in the Air covered the song “Heavy,” recorded by R&B singer and producer P.J. Morton and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine. The song was co-written by The Dualists, comprised of Australian producer Tushar Apte and British producer Manon Dave, who heard a live recording of Up in the Air’s a cappella version and offered to include it as a bonus track on their forthcoming EP.
Up in the Air did a studio recording of the song in Atlanta’s Namaste Studios, after which the group’s director Brad Rees shared the tracks with Dave, who remixed them for inclusion on The Dualists’ release.
Up in the Air’s version was arranged by TU student David Driskill, who is a featured soloist on the track, along with Seth Conklin. Driskill, a Cincinnati native, is currently a senior majoring in Arts Administration, and Conklin is a junior ProMusic performance major from Fort Wayne. Also featured on the recording are vocalists Shanna Litton, Chanel Arnold-Murray, Katelyn Ybarra, Cara Nally, Garrett McGrail, and beatboxer Ivan Santiago.
