As an artist who is never afraid to dip her toes into the electronic dance music world for some of her singles, Rihanna has worked with veteran EDM artists such as Hardwell, Nicky Romero, and David Guetta. This connection with the dance music world has led to many artists remixing her singles and the results are amazing. Almost all tracks from the superstar can be remixed and they won’t sound out of place. However, even with this in mind, the latest remix from Los Kraits of ‘Needed Me’ takes those expectations to new heights.
Los Kraits formed in 2020 and comprises of Ricky and Matt. The duo hopes to build off their previous musical endeavors. By bringing their own unique sounds together, they hope to create something you haven’t heard before. Having impressed with their debut single ‘Press It’ receiving Spotify support from Martin Garrix. With this single, they were able to premier a fresh new style as artists, as they combine elements of bass house with groovy house music that is sure to get all heads across the world bopping as the listen.
For this remix, Los Kraits inject some bass house vibes into ‘Needed Me’ by Rihanna but they do so in a sublet way not to knock off fans of the original. It has quickly gained traction on SoundCloud, and for good reason: the track is upbeat and instantly gets you moving, but it also delivers dark and sexy undertones thanks to an assertive and melodic bassline. In fact, the bass itself sits front and center in the mix, riding perfectly alongside Rihanna’s nasty yet alluring vocal delivery. Using the vocals in a smart way, they build on the vocals with echoes and atmospheric sounds that build towards the drop. The drop hits with tons of groove and with low lying basslines, it doesn’t lack the power either. A fresh remix that is sure to make you take notice of this emerging duo.
