Washington, DC-based DJ/producer Trayze and Toronto’s Lincoln Baio have linked up again, this time remixing Timbaland and Justin Timberlake‘s 2009 collaboration “Carry Out” exclusively for DJcity.

As the third single released from Timbaland’s 2009 album Shock Value II, “Carry Out” helped the project reach the top 10 in both the United States and Europe. This version takes the original in a more soulful, lounge-ready direction.

“It’s been over 10 years since ‘Carry Out’ hit the clubs,” Trayze says. “[Lincoln and I] thought it was ready for a slow-bounce type of treatment.”

Dutch DJ/producer D’Maduro and Sweden’s DJ Stressy add soulful lounge vibes to two beloved R&B hits. D’Maduro flips D’Angelo‘s 1995 hit “Brown Sugar,” while DJ Stressy flips super-group Lucy Pearl‘s Don’t Mess With My Man.

“Don’t Mess With My Man” has always been a favorite of DJ Stressy’s. Regarding the laid-back vibes of the track, he notes that he “hopes listeners like this one in the car, at the gym or at a bar.” As for D’Maduro, he feels that, in remixing D’Angelo, “the biggest challenge is remixing a classic without losing its essentials. This one deserved a smooth funky/soul makeover with a touch of bounce.”

Rogerson Remixes Major Lazer’s ‘Bam Bam’: DJcity Exclusive

Dutch DJ/producer Rogerson has delivered a remix of Major Lazer‘s “Bam Bam,” featuring French Montana and BEAM. This DJcity exclusive goes into tech-house territory with a pumping bassline.

The original track is from Music Is the Weapon,  Major Lazer’s just-released fourth album. It marks three years since hip-hop hitmaker Montana and the tropical bass trio collaborated on “Leg Over” featuring Mr. Eazi and Ty Dolla $ign. That song received the Nigeria Entertainment Award for “Hottest Single of the Year.”

“I was searching for a song that I could remix, when ‘Bam Bam’ took my eyes, as it was on #1 in the record pool,” Rogerson says. “It already had the Afro-type vibe that I like, but I wanted to combine that with some full tech-house sounds. I had to find the right way to transition between the styles, but I’m very pleased with the result!”

Da Phonk & J Rythm Remix Daddy Yankee’s ‘Tu Principe’: DJcity Exclusive

Dutch DJ/producer Da Phonk and Los Angeles’ J Rythm have given a banging, dembow-driven refresh to Daddy Yankee‘s Zion y Lennox collaboration “Tu Principe.” Upon its release in 2005, the song cracked the top 40 of Billboard’s Hot Latin charts and has remained a Latin club favorite ever since.

Da Phonk notes: “When I heard this classic banger, I knew right away that I could make a pumping 2020 remix! With the special touch of my buddy from LA, we made a remix with heavy build-ups and a banging moombahton drop.” J Rythm continues, “We felt [like] keeping the original vibe but flipping the drop into a moombah kinda style, by chopping up some vocal samples to create lots of energy.”

D’Maduro And Tomcio Remix Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ and Eric Benet’s ‘Georgy Porgy’: DJcity Exclusives

Dutch DJ/producers D’Maduro and Tomcio have added a soulful moombahton flair to two R&B hits from different eras. D’Maduro takes on Al Green‘s 1971 smash “Let’s Stay Together,” while Tomcio flips Eric Benet‘s 1999 duet with Faith Evans, “Georgy Porgy.”

D’Maduro opts for a moombahton-inspired version of Al Green’s classic, and Tomcio’s take on Eric Benet adds a brighter bassline to the funk-drenched soul hit. In both cases, the grooving basslines are ideal for slightly more than mid-tempo relaxation. As lounge vibes dominate venues for the foreseeable future, these tracks are ideal.

D’Maduro notes that his goal was to revive a classic to “make you groove while expressing your soul to another person,” while Tomcio notes, “there are different situations during the gigs now, and these vibes are adjusted for the audiences right now.
