Wiz Khalifa - Black & Yellow (Cova n Mo Rada mix) - Mo Rada and Cova take it to the next level with their mix of "Black & Yellow" released on Rated H. The track boasts a clever re-arrangement of the original keys and perfectly imaged percussion. Mo Rada got a chance to play this track out before releasing it and had this to say: "I dropped it at the right time as was able to turn a room full of Blue-Yankee-Hat-wearing hip hop heads into fist-pumping Guido's." One of the bartenders called the track "arguably the best Black & Yellow mix out there." Take a listen:

Mo Rada and DJ Cova do it again. This time, with Rihanna's new hit "S&M". It took only a single day to climb halfway up the charts on the Rated H remix website. This particular mix boasts big room percussion with a distinct smooth sound. The snares and toms will undoubtedly grab your attention. The original melody was kept, but given a new sound and house style facelift. The bridge build is just infected with a sexy energy that fits perfectly with the song. Take a listen:
Mo Rada returns to the production scene joining forces with DJ Cova, an already accomplished remixer & producer. Their first original remix promises to be a big one and is already making a splash around popular remix forums and web sites. Have a listen:
The track features a "housey" re-imagination of the melody and a "dutch-like" build re-layered with both hard and sharp percussion that just bleed energy. However it's best quality is the employment of moderation. All of the elements are so well balanced that it keeps the track from being labeled with one house genre or another. Simply put, it can be played for a commercial top 40 crowd at the local bar or a 2am house crowd at the city mega club.
The track was released on Rated H.net and is available for download there.
