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.”

Upon its release, “Like Glue” became an international hit. It reached No. 13 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and made it into the top ten on UK, Canadian, Irish, and Swiss charts. Richastic’s remix adds heavier drums and his signature vocal chops to the dancehall throwback.
“It’s a lot of fun recreating old songs in a new remix and knowing that they are played in clubs around the world,” Richastic says. “Everyone who appreciates my remixes will be especially happy about “[Like Glue].”
