(Source: Richastic)

German DJ/producer Richastic has flipped Rihanna‘s heavy-hitting 2011 track “Birthday Cake” into a booming, moombahton-style heater. The remix is available exclusively on DJcity

Richastic’s house-oriented production flair is showcased here. The track’s trademark zipping synths are chopped to create stuttering energy that, when paired with Rihanna’s vocal, creates a pop-dembow combo that feels ready for peak-hour play.

Richastic shared his inspiration for the remix via email: “I had the idea to do a remix of “Birthday Cake” in June when it was my birthday and there was no cake. 🙁

Dutch DJ/production duo Stavros Martina and Kevin D have linked up for another DJcity exclusive remix. This time, Corona’s Eurodance classic “Rhythm of the Night” —  a global top-ten smash in 1994 — gets a modern refresh.

Gone are the racing synths and manic energy. Instead, they’re replaced with a soothing dembow rhythm aided by the booming soprano vocal chopped into a melodic line all its own.

Regarding the remix, Martina says “the track was a special project. We made it to save the nightlife.  It means let’s save the clubs…because [the coronavirus] is doing a lot of damage to the nightlife. ‘Save the rhythm of the night’ is a nice quote. Let’s save the night together and work together to help each other in these [coronavirus] times.”

Dutch DJs/producers ZIGGY and Mr. Bermuda‘s latest collaboration is a remix of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis‘ 2012 hit “Thrift Shop” featuring Wanz. Since its release, the Billboard #1 hit single sold 10 million-plus copies worldwide.

Similar to their other moombahton-style edits that have excelled on the DJCity charts, the duo finds a unique element of the track and flips it. In this case, the horn line is chopped and tweaked, adding a fun flavor to balance out the low-end.

ZIGGY says, “[Mr. Bermuda and I] both play at the same clubs all across the country and we play the same events. We wanted to bring this track back to life because we love it so much and gave it a little twist and sauce of our own. We want this remix to be played all over the world once this whole COVID situation is over! For us, this is an absolute club banger!”
