Rihanna – Where Have You Been (Omnidextrous Radio Remix)

by Ruben on July 16th, 2012 Leave a comment »

A quick experiment, started yesterday, bored with it today. This remix was done “the other way around”. Instead of adding tracks to an existing vocal track, I started out by just jamming some dance-tune and trying to find vocals to match my track afterwards. The vocal track that seemed to fit best with my creation was “Where Have You Been” by Rihanna. If you listen carefully, you can hear the shamelessly ripped bassline from Lil Louis’ “French Kiss” in it, which was a big hit in 1989/1990.

The first version is called the “Radio Remix” because my original version was too long and a colleague played a version on his local radioshow that he cut shorter in a way I absolutely didn’t like, so I made a shorter version myself. The second version is the original full-length version.

This remix was made on a MacBook (not Pro) running Logic Pro 9 and various AU plugins. The track used to be on SoundCloud, but I got a complaint from the fuckers from Universal Music Group and it was removed by “The SoundCloud Copyright Team”.
