Rihanna – Work (Murlo Remix)

Last few months have been like living with your back against a dodge-ball wall being bombarded by anyone and their pet acoustic guitar armed chipmunk making acoustic covers of Work by Rihanna. London based artist Murlo however let the dust settle and released his own pastel Murlo-shaped edit. Starting 2016 by composing the Nasir Mazhar AW16 show soundtrack in January followed by launching the DBM project with Local Action’s Deadboy in February. Springtime sees him dashing around the UK and Europe before heading off to the States for a debut DBM North America tour in July. His edit of ‘Work’ gives the original more space to maneuver, expanding it with Cainhurst Castle reverb. He opens the track with a threadbare intro that he slowly adds his own signature elements so that by 1 and a half minute in , familiar flutes slalom in between by hi-hats mixed at just the right level; nothing overdone all with a freshly squeezed bass-line.
