Rihanna – Work feat Drake (Phantoms Remix)

You'd have to have been living under a rock to not have heard Work by Rhianna and Drake. It's been number one pretty much all over the world at some point in the last 6 months and in fairness it's a pretty decent track in it's original form. But it's the re-work by the mighty Phantoms that's been stuck in my head for the last few weeks.


I realise it's quite unusual for us to feature something so mainstream like this, but the thing I really like about this remix is the fact they kind of re-interpret the original rather than fully remix it – taking the original melody and re-play it, beefing it up, underlay lazy but snappy beat and then work it with subtle tweaks to the filters and vocals taking it from a dancehall thumper to a mid-tempo electronic behemoth that is as comfortable on radio as it would be on a loungey dancefloor.


Of course the tracks been around for months, as has the remix (which is free to download via an annoying Spotify support), but I've recently re-discovered it due to the fact I've been hearing it everywhere I go (the remix), it’s literally been hammered everywhere I go and has subsequently become a thorough ear worm for the whole family and a real guilty pleasure.


So, on the off chance you haven’t heard it, here you go
