Katy Perry – The One That Got Away (R3hab Remix)

4 years ago written by

Not going to lie. When I saw that yet ANOTHER Katy Perry song had been remixed this year, I almost skimmed past it. However, I’m a chick and because it’s in my feminine nature, I hit play.

The beginning of the track is a bit predictable with emphasis on Ms. Perry’s vocals. I yawn. But alas, about a minute in, the beat drops and suddenly I’m impressed. R3hab has done it again. To take a musical hammer to a top 40 hit and smash the living daylights out of it is not descriptive enough for this remix. I’m not saying that it’s been butchered, I’m saying he’s torn it up in the best way possible. R3hab’s work puts a chainsaw-esque emphasis on songs, creating a totally new ear-opening sound. He’s transformed the song into one of his own. In my opinion, he’s done a bangin’ job (no pun intended).

R3hab has exploded into the electro-house scene and is creating quite a following. He’s been knocking it out of the park most recently with artists like Tiesto, David Guetta and Calvin Harris. I look forward to hearing his next release, as I’m a fan of any producer/DJ that can transform a mediocre song into something I can actually vibe with.

    how this is considered as “house” is beyond me, i think its better suited to the shitty subgenre of shitty generic trash electro, please dont defame the name house music with this pile of dog shit for a remix

  • ghiuko

    it is good shit but i have to agree that it does not belong in the house section

  • Rebecca

    this song rocks and under the shitty one now thats mean cuz she works hard to write these songs and she gets up in front of everyone and sings and shes doing what she loves to do so she just leave her alone cuz alot of ppl love her and she is a very good song writer and shes good at singing to so step off quit trippin when u can write songs and then sing them in front of the world then u can go a critisize ppl but then u prolly would want to cuz thats what ppl are gunna be doing to u and ur not gunna like it so u shouldnt do it to other ppl
