Bassline-loving Dutch duo Da Phonk and Rogerson have joined forces to remix “Pon De Replay,” Rihanna’s debut single from 2005. The original’s sweetly skittering bottom end is replaced with a more substantial and faster percussive riddim. This remix adds a husky seduction to the song’s sexy dancehall vibes.
“Pon de Replay” was not just Rihanna’s debut single. It is the first of what are now 31 top-ten Billboard singles featuring the Barbados native. It also kicked off her mainstream career with a song that has sold five million-plus copies since its release.
“We wanted to give this Rihanna song a more powerful vibe,” Da Phonk says. “So we combined my pumping drums with the signature bassline of Rogerson, created some crazy build-ups on top, and now it’s more DJ/club-friendly.”
