Following the success of the original ‘Flex Pon You’ release, duo Ricky Dietz (Jamaican-Canadian R&B singer Sway Clarke and Pierre Baigorry) enlist none other than ultimate grime heavyweight producer Z Dot and the godfather of grime, Wiley, for the highly anticipated remix.
Wiley jumps onto the track with a verse heavily inspired by his most recent track ‘Boasty’ which proved a huge success with over 55 million streams to date.
With a skippy flow brimming with punchlines, he effortlessly injects ‘Flex Pon You’ with his raw grime roots. Mixing a Shaku rhythm with Sway’s unmistakably spiky word play it creates something cool and immersive.

Sway – a hit songwriter for the likes of John Legend and Tinie Tempah – joined forces with Pierre, already a successful singer in Germany, to create a confluence of innately funky, danceable sounds.
The product of the duo’s combined influences is the kind of tongue-in-cheek cool that’s becoming more apparent with each subsequent release.
Polished, insane and undoubtedly talented, Ricky Dietz have gone from hyper-local to transnational, and with ‘Flex Pon You’ set to continue to underline their credentials once more, it’ll also have you on the dancefloor.
