Riddim Travelers ft Dutchess & Cherae “Rewind” (Monom Records) – DJ Pack
“Rewind” is the first priority single for vocalists Dutchess & Cherae and the song was produced by music industry veteran, Alexx Antaeus.
Seductive. Captivating. Enduring. Hit-making producer Alexx Antaeus and Riddim Travelers release their latest single, “Rewind” featuring Dutchess & Cherae on Monom Records. The RiddimTravelers featuring Dutchess & Cherae’s “Rewind” (Monom Records) is out now.
The Original Mix of “Rewind” is smoldering and filled with mystery. This version drips with sensuality as Dutchess & Cherae’s vocals – with Dutchess rapping in her Jamaican accent and Cherae singing in a full-throated, R&B/pop-infused way – come to the front. Producer Alexx Antaeus’ production is superbly tight and the song has the solid construction that American FM radio demands. The Basshall Remix exhibits a far-East sounding synthesizer with a pitched-down tempo so that Cherae’s vocals feel more seductive.Leaning harder towards Dutchess’ Jamaican roots, this edit maintains a dynamic punch well suited for big, open-air music festivals hitting summer 2019. Antaeus’ progressive-house touch and filthy horns ensure that this edit appeals to the more seasoned, house- music lovers packing today’s dancefloors. The Dance Remix begins with a vocoder processed vocal repeating the refrain, “Hey DJ,play my song….” The hip, throwback vibe of this edit is delicious, and the song vaults into a booming 4/4 beat filled with fun and spontaneity. As its name implies, the Reggaeton Remix is a downtempo dub track, but what’s surprising are the minor-key chords and electro-tinged synthesizers that put this version squarely in the electronic music realm. The Digi Remix has the main vocal entering immediately at the intro. This pop-radio friendly edit possesses an appealing effortlessness.
