New tracks that DJs should know about.
Dutch DJ/producer D’Maduro and South Africa’s Shaun Johannes have added soulful, modern vibes to Aaliyah‘s 2001 R&B classic “Rock The Boat.” The track stayed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for half a year in 2002 and was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards.
“This smooth R&B hit needed some extra love,” D’Maduro says. “So I’ve teamed up with one of South Africa’s most talented bass players, Shaun Johannes, to add some funky and flavor-filled bass lines.” Stylistically, the remix picks up where D’Maduro left off with his flip of Al Green‘s 1971 classic “Let’s Stay Together”.
