The Up-Turn

@TheUpTurnMusic / tinyurl.com/upturnfbook

Rihanna is an artist I never imagined I’d be blogging about but leave it to mysterious producer Earnest Blount (who also gave the same treatment to a Drake track) to take a song like this and make it undeniably amazing.  Earnest Blount extracts all the club-ready synths from the original and replaces it with a great sensual atmosphere that is more fitting for Rihanna’s manipulated vocals.  The track reaches an audio break down around the 2-minute mark that left me stunned the first time I listened to it and still gives me chills to listen through.  Despite the remix being simply gorgeous, Earnest Blount describes it as a simple “little nugget before the EP comes out”.  Whenever this EP drops I’ll definitely be listening.
