When news first broke that Don Diablo was working with Gucci Mane on a new single, I honestly thought it was a troll. Lucky for me, and gut feeling was totally wrong because ‘Survive’ turned out to be one of Don’s best releases of 2018. Now as the year begins to come to a close,
I remember the professor of my first research class saying “statistics don’t lie”. While he would later add a caveat to that statement explaining that statistics can be manipulated, I have found his quote to hold true in almost all areas of life. For this reason, I absolutely love 1001Tracklists for providing the most up
Don Diablo is back to deliver a unique “Chill Mix” for his Hexagonian listeners. Straying away from his signature upbeat, futuristic house anthems, the Dutch DJ-producer slows his sound down with his “Another Chance” remix featuring Big Pineapple.
The Hexagon Radio founder shared the release to his 322K followers on Twitter to voice his excitement about the track, which he had first remixed in June of this year, alongside minimal details on the original track. The new release comes just a few weeks after his explosive collaboration with Gucci Mane and Emeli Sandé, “Survive,” which blends the realms of rap and dance music into an electrifying, beat-driven single.
It may be tough to imagine an EDM crossover collab still raising eyebrows in 2018. Artists ranging from Skrillex to Kygo have made pop-savvy dance tunes featuring radio royalty Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and more. Still, anyone who saw a futuristic meeting of worlds between Don Diablo, Emeli Sandé and trap rap icon Gucci Mane likely had a crystal ball. The three of them make future house magic on a new single titled “Survive,” arriving via Diablo’s Hexagon imprint.
Emile Sandé kicks things off with hair-raising melodrama, her choruses meshing perfectly with the track’s epic atmospherics. Don Diablo lets the stuttering beat worm its way into listeners’ ears before Gucci Mane takes over on what has to be the most unique backdrop for bars the rapper has ever met. Gucci’s verse is sure to surprise those who though the ingredients couldn’t possibly fit, his triumphant brags providing instant swagger.
“It’s just one of those records that needed to be absolutely perfect, from start to finish,” Diablo told Billboard. “I wanted to it to stand out and combine three worlds into one; a Dutch music producer, an incredible British singer songwriter, and one of the biggest U.S. rappers of today. I am more than proud of the final outcome, and hope the music and the message of the song will motivate people to dream big and see beyond the clouds of their personal challenges.”
Don Diablo and Hexagon have been on an absolute roll lately, and it’s not stopping today.

Dutch super producer Don Diablo is the latest heavy hitter to try his hand at remixing Martin Garrix‘s hit collaboration with R&B crooner Khalid, “Oceans.” Adding his signature upbeat flair to the track, Don Diablo undoubtedly extends the shelf life of Garrix and Khalid’s infectious crossover cut, with a remix effort that stands head and shoulders above the rest.
Don Diablo slows down the tempo and enhances Khalid’s vocals to become the centerpiece of the track during the introduction. The track breaks with cutting, club-ready chords as Don Diablo injects a fresh energy into “Oceans.” Diablo’s ability to pick up the energy while maintaining the song’s original allure showcases the producer’s versatile hand behind the console. The new “Oceans” remix is out now on Garrix’s STMPD Records.
