After DJ/producer duo Lucas & Steve recently released a brand new, highly successful cut of Blackstreet’s ‘No Diggity’, without a doubt one of the biggest songs from the ’90s, the record is now back again in a fresh remix by Nathan Dawe. This phenomenon from the UK house scene has taken the track further onto the dancefloor, dropping some serious grooves and club vibes alongside the original’s re-recorded R&B vocals.
Such a grand tune couldn’t go without a proper remix. And who’s better for the job than Nathan Dawe, a rising star from the UK house scene. The Birmingham DJ/producer has been dropping serious dancefloor bombs these last years, delivering a contemporary take on UK garage, clubhouse, and 2-step. Surely, 2019 hit ‘Flowers’ was his claim to fame, bringing a fresh twist on the UK garage classic, but last year Dawe kept evolving with rhythmic house grooves ‘Lighter’ and ‘No Time For Tears’, this year followed up by the 2-step beats of ‘Way Too Long’ – each racking up tens of millions of streams.
So, the right man at the right place to remix ‘No Diggity’ into dancefloor bliss. Nathan Dawe honors the Lucas & Steve tune by maintaining the original’s vocals and melody but takes the record straight into the club with some moody piano chords, rhythmic bass sounds, and a steady beat. Quickly working the tune towards the chorus, the record is enhanced by subtle sound and vocal effects, brisk chord progressions, and a more uptempo groove.
The result is a record that’s even better suited as a DJ weapon. The hooks are there, as well as the inviting vocals, while the beat and rhythm make sure you’ll never stop partying to this timeless tune – ’No Diggity’ is here to stay.
