Doesn’t get more LA than a fluid and bouncy remix of a Rihanna single from a yet-to-be-known producer. So here we are, ready to be blasted from car stereos with the windows down. Little known about Young Prince as of yet, other than he’s purposefully anonymous and residing somewhere in the depths of Los Angeles county. Rihanna’s single is booming – a stomping, in-your-face announcement rather fitting as a lead single for a new album, especially our darling bold RiRi. Somehow, Young Prince strips things to a shinier place, literally flooding the production with dripping synths. Normally something so esoteric isn’t necessarily assertive, yet Young Prince sonically delivers something that commands your ears and the room, stripping none of the booming energy from the original whilst shifting the mood and aesthetic to an entirely different place.
Intrigued to see what’s next from this mystery producer, I imagine it’s going to be good if you kick off with an official Rihanna remix….
