“We Found Love” (Star Slinger Remix)

    Fellow Prefixer Andrew Martin mentioned earlier this year that UK-producer Star Slinger has steadily positioned himself as “one of the more prolific hip-hop producers” of recent times. Despite his catchy remixes and his own brand of electro-hip hop singles, the producer hasn’t caught on stateside quite yet.

    His latest remix is of Rihanna’s lead single “We Found Love” off her 2011 album Talk That Talk. The original is a sunny, upbeat club anthem full of glossy synths and a massive hook. On the remix, Star Slinger chops those smooth synth lines up and drowns Rihanna’s vocals deep within the stuttered rhythms resulting in a Soca-fied offering that maintains its club-friendly atmosphere.
