Rihanna – Work (Anders Young Remix)
Who says bedroom producers aren’t legitimate artists? Fools stuck in 1983, that’s who. The back half of the 2000s saw a monumental shift in the music scene with the beginning of the “EDM Bubble” (which we all know to be complete hoopla), capitalized by a trend of productions made away from the studio and into the comfort of one’s own home. Of course we love headlining acts and mainstay superstars, but this community is driven from the ground up, and producers like the ambiguously new Anders Young are a prime example. Making his online debut with a remix of Rihanna’s “Work,” the Swedish moniker proves you can make a dope remix that isn’t trappified. Is it EDM? Is it Drum & Bass? Is it pop? Who cares, it’s a seriously infectious take on a global phenomena of a track, and that’s all that matters to us. With a D&B inspired backbone this newly imagined “Work” just…well works; vocal cuts and filtration, springy piano, lifted n’ layered synths, and a decidedly summer vibe make this an ideal download for your seasonal playlists.
