Earlier this year, Sticky's Jumeirah Riddim was a constant staple of my playlist rotationals. Hell, it still is...who am I kidding. With a stringed bass and beat that makes my pulse race like none other, it's easy to see, nay HEAR, why I love it...in addition to the respect it garnered from being used in a Ludacris track.
The big news these days at Mixpak headquarters is the growing success of the Sticky and Natalie Storm single Look Pon Me, which uses the former's track to base the bounce. Get this: in the UK, Storm's video has been added to the official playlist on MTV, giving her the distinction of being only the second Caribbean artist on the channel (yes, the other is Rhianna). Not bad exposure for a small label like Mixpak and, if anything, it speaks to how good this track is.
With all the success, Mixpak has decided to give you the chance to remix this UK-Funky-meets-Jamaica-jam hit. Respec'.
