Dutch DJs/producers Da Phonk and Robin Roij have teamed up once again, this time on a remix of the soca classic “Tempted To Touch” by Rupee. The Barbadian singer’s 2004 track was an international hit, making its way onto both the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles charts.
“We always love playing this classic tune in our sets,” the duo noted. “So we both thought it’s time for a 2021 version with a heavy buildup towards a banging drop.”

DJ ND, host of DJcityTV’s Made From Scratch and Beatsource’s Step Your Game Up tutorial series, has linked up with multiple battle champ DJ Odilon for a routine using their latest DJ tool. Released last week, the third installment of the Made From Scratch DJ tool series has already climbed to number five on the DJcity Hot Box chart.

Dutch DJ/producer Rogerson is back with another remix exclusively for DJcity. This time around, he flips Wiz Khalifa‘s club classic “We Dem Boyz” into a pulsing, four-on-the-floor heater. The original track premiered in 2014 and made its way to the number four slot on Billboard’s US Hot Rap Songs chart.
“When I started making this track, I wanted to make every sound myself,” Rogerson says. “I started with the break, working towards a heavy sounding drop, like I always do. I really like creating dark and rough tracks like these!”

In honor of DMX, Richastic has put his signature spin on the late rapper’s 1998 classic “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem.” The track was one of four singles from DMX’s debut studio album It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, which has been certified four times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
“DMX, a great artist has passed away and this is my way of paying tribute to him,” Richastic says. “I hope this remix will find its way into some DJ tracklists & help to keep his sound alive.”

German DJ/producer Richastic provides his trademark Latin-inspired flavor to another remix exclusively for DJcity. This time, it’s Mighty Dub Katz‘s 1995 favorite “Magic Carpet Ride.” Mighty Dub Katz was comprised of Fatboy Slim and co-producer Gareth Hansome.
“The last time I visited my friend Criss (aka ‘Crazy Boy’) at Hansa Studios Berlin, we talked a lot about music and my remixes,” Richastic says. “He’s the guy who got the idea that I should do a remix of Mighty Dub Katz – ‘Magic Carpet Ride’ and here you go.”

Dutchman Da Phonk and Colombia’s Luis R have teamed up for a remix of Notch’s 2001 reggae hit “Nuttin Nuh Go So.” Based on the same riddim behind Sean Paul‘s 2002 reggaeton anthem “Like Glue,” the duo imbues their remix with a fun, poppy feel.
Regarding the remix, Da Phonk and Luis R says that they “really enjoyed turning this classic dancehall tune into a bouncing 2021 remix,” because they both “love and play the original a lot!” Da Phonk says “on top of Luis’ bassline and chords, we added my type of drum groove and arrangement. That’s what made the perfect combination for this collaboration. We tried to create a new warm vibe so it will fit a little better in current 2021 sets with more energy and pumping beats.”
