R3HAB is back with another major collaboration — this time, featuring the singer/songwriter gone viral Lia Marie Johnson. After releases with A-listers KSHMR and Krewella over the past few months, the Amsterdam native is able to target another huge fan base (other than his own) with Johnson’s massive YouTube following.

“The Wave” features captivating lyrics that’ll take listeners right into beach season, with a slower tempo that centers in on major-scaling piano chords, up-beat synths and looped, interchanging vocal-motifs. Both talents have proved their aptitude in catchy production techniques, and have certainly wielded their abilities in full for this single.

Norwegian DJ and producer Matoma has teamed up with renowned producers R3HAB, CID, and Devault to release a diverse remix package for his last hit, “Slow.” The original version of “Slow,” featuring budding star Noah Cyrus, showcases an intriguing mix of prominent bass, flirty, punchy beats, and carefree waves of synths that are tied together by Noah’s playful top-line. The track is quickly becoming one of Matoma’s biggest hits to date, garnering more than 10 million streams worldwide since its release.

Each artist’s take on the original brings a unique flair to the production. R3HAB amps up “Slow” with a melodic future bass style and intoxicating waves of synths. CID’s spin on the single adds captivating, energetic beats and a striking progressive house vibe. Devault produces a rendition categorized by a striking, choppy climax infused with airy, distorted vocals.

With each remix, R3HAB, CID, and Devault flaunt their distinct signature sounds. With his most recent, “Slow” is a testament to Matoma’s ingenuity; his flair for immediately infectious pop-infused songwriting is now stronger than ever, as the single marks the first piece from his forthcoming debut studio album, One In A Million, available everywhere March 9 via Big Beat Records.

R3HAB & Krewella – Ain’t That Why

This post was originally published on this site

R3HAB‘s transition from electro house hopeful into full-blown crossover king has come to the tune of hundreds of millions of streams and a notable domination of the digital streaming world. Having spent the time since his debut album TROUBLE fuelling the market with stellar remixes for the likes of Rita Ora and Sigrid, the latest single from his own R3HAB Music imprint follows-up on recent KSHMR club collab “Islands,” landing alongside diligent US dance duo Krewella. A fusion of blissful future bass infused pop, the Krewella sister’s distinctive vocal chops flow seamlessly alongside the tracks bouncy and well tempered production values. It’s the kind of coherent and carefully balanced electronic pop we’ve come to expect from R3HAB – an artist who seems incapable of doing anything by the half measure here in 2017.

Just days after the release of his collaboration with Krewella, R3HAB has released another huge track: a rework of Thirty Seconds to Mars‘ “Walk on Water.” The powerhouse producer has been on a roll lately, releasing his debut album in September and finishing up multiple originals and collaborations.

His remix of “Walk on Water” adds a dance music backbone to the original track, but doesn’t stray too far from the empowering rock song’s core. R3HAB lets lead vocalist Jared Leto‘s voice guide the track, adapting it just slightly to fit in with the producer’s discography. It’s a well-executed of an already brilliant song that will rouse fans of both dance and rock music.

R3HAB & Waysons – Shanghai

This post was originally published on this site

Dutch producer R3HAB has released his collaborative track, “Shanghai” with Swiss duo, Waysons. “Shanghai” is the eighth track his debut LP Trouble, released via his own label, R3HAB Music, recently established last October.

“Shanghai” is a substantial leap outside R3HAB’s quintessential comfort zone, as he is known primarily for his big room and electro house anthems. “Shanghai” is a bouncy future bass tune infused with heavy kicks and melodic interludes. The song’s elements of heavy hybrid trap are uncharacteristic to the producer’s happy-go-lucky discography.

See how much your favorite DJs have changed over the past 5 years

This post was originally published on this site

While seeing someone like Hardwell or Afrojack at the Ultra main stage today may be a similar experience to what it was in 2012, it cannot be denied that dance music has seen considerable change over the past five years or so. One of the biggest signs has been the willingness of artists to expand their sounds and collaborative choices. For example, Afrojack, who was dropping the crunchiest beats in the game a few years ago, is now working with artists like Ty Dolla $ign and Luis Fonsi to breed mainstream, Top 40 tracks. There’s also the case of The Chainsmokers, who went from remixing popular indie/alternative songs in 2013 to now being arguably the hottest duo in the world right now, topping the charts across all genres in working with Coldplay, Halsey, and others.

Dance music has proven it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and that it is capable of rapid evolution and reinvention. To prove how much the music has changed over the years, a Facebook page called Revealed Family posted two videos entitled “EDM – THEN vs. NOW.” The videos give a track by track outline of how different music by the top DJs in the game was 5 years ago versus how it is now. There’s a clear difference in sound and production style that should be noticed instantly. The videos include old and new tracks by Nicky Romero, Zedd, R3hab, Avicii, Skrillex, Alesso, Vicetone, Deorro, The Chainsmokers and more.
