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.”

Download Spryte’s “Don’t Stop The Music” remix exclusively on DJcity.

German DJ/producer Richastic has flipped Rihanna and Chris Brown‘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. 🙁

Bassline-loving Dutch duo Da Phonk and Rogerson have joined forces to remix “Pon De Replay,” Rihanna’s debut single from 2005. The original’s sweetly skittering bottom end is replaced with a more substantial and faster percussive riddim. This remix adds a husky seduction to the song’s sexy dancehall vibes.

“Pon de Replay” was not just Rihanna’s debut single. It is the first of what are now 31 top-ten Billboard singles featuring the Barbados native. It also kicked off her mainstream career with a song that has sold five million-plus copies since its release.

“We wanted to give this Rihanna song a more powerful vibe,” Da Phonk says. “So we combined my pumping drums with the signature bassline of Rogerson, created some crazy build-ups on top, and now it’s more DJ/club-friendly.”
