Spryte is back with another DJcity exclusive, this time remixing Jay Sean, Sean Paul, Lil Jon‘s 2009 hit “Do You Remember.” Spryte adds a deep house groove to the track which, upon its release, hit the No. 10 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“I’ve really been digging Meduza‘s work lately, so I decided to take a stab at creating their iconic sound,” Spryte says. “After I had a solid idea of the track down, I exported the track to listen to it in my car. I always do this – I think it’s a great way to find flaws and experience how a listener would hear your track. After listening to it a solid 10-15 times, I switched back to the radio and they were playing Jay Sean’s ‘Do You Remember.’ I was like hold up! I put back on my track and started singing the Jay Sean lyrics over it and boom! The remix was born.”

DJcity fan favorite Rogerson has linked up with fellow Dutch producer Ray Montreal to flip Blackstreet‘s 1996 classic “No Diggity.” The Teddy Riley-produced track, which features Dr. Dre, hit the top spot on charts around the globe and has been certified platinum in the US, UK, and New Zealand.

“Me and Ray know each other for some time already, but we never did a musical collaboration,” Rogerson says. “After he asked me for feedback on his ‘No Diggity’ remix, we decided to combine forces. The R&B vibe really fits in modern house music, as it sounds tough and cool. On top of my bassline, we added Ray’s type of drum groove, which he uses on all his tracks. That’s what made the perfect picture.”

Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ Remixed by Spryte: DJcity Exclusive

Los Angeles-based DJ/producer Spryte‘s latest exclusive for DJcity is a remix of Rihanna’s 2007 hit “Don’t Stop The Music.” In his remix, the number one global dance single receives a pounding, deep house interpretation.

“For this track, I was messing around with soft synth guitars,” Spryte recalls. “After about a half-hour of playing different melodies on my Ableton Push, I stumbled across the main melody line I use throughout the track. I don’t usually do this, but on this track, I was inspired to work on the beat before I chose a vocal. There were a couple of different options on the table, but I ended up placing Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ over the track.”

The Champs’ ‘Tequila’ Remixed by Stavros Martina and Kevin D: DJcity Exclusive

Dutch DJ/production duo Stavros Martina and Kevin D have linked up for another DJcity exclusive remix. This time, The Champs’ 1958 classic “Tequila” —  a top-20 hit that year that has remained popular ever since — gets an exciting moombahton refresh.

The original’s Latin jazz flavor is preserved, and the tempo is dropped into a groove that matches the cool vibe of the famous saxophone solo. The dembow riddim under the chopped, bright horns and the groove in the melody is the spotlight here.

Regarding the remix, Stavros Martina says “Kevin D and I were chilling in the home studio, and I saw a full bottle of tequila. I said to Kevin D, ‘TEQUILA!’ He said what!? So I repeated: ‘TEQUILA!’ Then I sang the song. He thought it was an awesome idea for a remix. One day later, the remix was finished. One week later, we still had the remix in our heads and kept playing it over and over!”
