Following closely on the heels of a stellar remix of “Naughty Naughty” with the aptly titled “R3hab’s Pacha 6AM Remix,” MTV News is proud to bring you R3hab’s remix of Porcelain Black’s “This is What Rock N Roll Looks Like,” a pretty awesome re-work of the RedOne-produced original featuring Lil Wayne (if you remember Weezy brought out PB to open on his “I Am Music II Tour” last year).
For dance music producer R3hab, born Faadil El Ghoul, who in the last year has remixed Katy Perry, will.i.am and Rihanna, among others, working with PB on “TIWRNRLL,” remains a pretty awesome venture.
“The original vibe is crazy, and I am a big fan of Lil Wayne,” R3hab told MTV News. “This track makes you wanna rage like the lyrics say! I see [the remix] as a rollercoaster ride. Breaks slow it down. Then there is a climb, and the big drop!”
“I hadn’t heard of him before the remixes, but I think he’s DOPE!” Porcelain Black told MTV News. “I wish his remixes were the official singles because they really pop off next level. I love all the spooky horror pop synths he throws in the mixes, and the breakdowns make me wanna throw back shots of whiskey and hair whip. If I could have sex with a song I’d def be tappin’ dat remix!”
R3hab’s remix of Porcelain Black’s “This is What Rock N Roll Looks Like,” will be available for download for free on R3hab’s soundcloud Tuesday, January 24.
