Birthday Cake (Liquid Stranger Remix) – Rihanna

February 17, 2016

Liquid Stranger

First off, I love this Rihanna song and always want it to be longer and featuring only her. I first heard it dropped at a rave in the woods in the west of Virginia and the crowd really went wild for it. In the midst of dubstep and drum & bass, this Rihanna song seized the crowd’s attention. So it should be no surprise that it also caught the attention of one of the original ravers, Liquid Stranger. If you want to get a sense of what’s going through the mind of Liquid Stranger, I present this interview to you as recommended reading, and Big Dub as the recommended festival. This remix is dark and dirty, filled with hints of dubstep, 808s and claps that evoke trap without actually deigning to be trap,  a couple stark big room synths to convey a sense of vast empty space, and a rhythm that flirts with moombahton. It’s a genre amalgam that feels original and innovative. So happy birthday, my fellow Aquarians; enjoy it.
