    Yo all, I remixed Rihanna's latest single, "Rude Boy" recently. I went for a slightly mellower vibe than TC's remix (I didn't realise he'd done one until midway through mine). You can listen / download for free here:

    It's backed with the VIP version of "Enigma", an original tune of mine featured on my Enigma EP. Cheers for showning interest / listening, means a lot man.

    Thanks again

    I remixed it because once I heard it I had ideas for it.. I don't think it's that bad a tune in all honesty either.

    Cheers Technic :) I didn't use anything, just arranged them myself to where they sounded best.

    I must admit I love the TC remix! A guilty pleasure of mine... ;)

    It's weird because I don't really like Rihanna and I don't really like TC :lol:.

    I'll check it out and let you know bro

    This aint bad man. Overall I liked it.

    Only thing wrong is the vocals aren't in time fully in some places.

    Big ups.

    Nice one dude. You sure about the vocals? I've had people telling me the vox are way out of time, and others (including me) reckon they're fine except in a few places.

    Production forum here or the dogsonacid.com GRID is the best place for a question like this ... and i think he was just saying that the idea you used was good, not how it was technically done. If production crew or DOA grid crew says you are good, then you are good, if not, go back and redo them (simple as that).

    overall, not bad, but as previously mentioned the vocals are by rihanna... dear lord 6+/10
