2018 has been a year of forward-thinking hard work from Don Diablo. Since the release of his sophomore album, Future, there’s been a lot to acknowledge regarding the Dutch producer, including remixes for Martin Garrix, Kygo, Diplo, and more, alongside various original works. Now, he’s decided to pay homage to the late Nate Dogg with his latest single “I Got Love.”
Dogg — who died tragically at the age of 41 — is considered one of the pioneers of West Coast hip-hop, coming up with rap legends such as cousin Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Dr. Dre, and 50 Cent. It may seem that Diablo is taking things in a unique direction here, but his previous single, “Survive” featured contemporary rapper Gucci Mane — proving his innovative moves to break into hip-hop’s rising popularity.
The track samples Dogg’s vocals from his 2001 release of the same name, which are layered over upbeat piano chords and subtle drum hits to create blissful future house vibes.
Don Diablo is taking his relationship with Disney one step further, announcing a special Halloween performance at Disneyland’s Paris amusement park. The Dutch producer and DJ will fittingly take over the Star Wars section of the park for his performance, following a clothing collaboration with the franchise earlier in 2018.
Don Diablo has been making it a point to DJ some impressive events this year, most recently live streaming a sunset performance from a yacht in one of Ibiza’s most iconic vistas. And Disneyland’s European location is bulking up their presence in the dance music hemisphere, boasting this booking that follows a festival that launched in 2017 called Electroland. Here’s to hoping the amusement park’s Los Angeles and Orlando locations follow suit and jump into the dance event space soon.
Combine Don Diablo, Halloween, and Disneyland Paris and you have quite the epic night ahead of you. Yesterday the DJ announced his special show taking place in the Star Wars area of Disneyland Paris. Earlier this year, Don Diablo announced his clothing line collaboration with Disney’s Star Wars which proved successful. He’s now taking that collaboration
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. Diablo has released a massive collab titled “Survive” featuring UK singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé and superstar rapper Gucci Mane. “Survive” isn’t the typical upbeat future house festival track you would expect from Don. “Survive” is laced with an absolutely magnificent
Don Diablo is always full of surprises. After a massive year featuring an incredible album, and countless singles to boot, Don isn’t done quite yet. Today on social media, the future house pioneer has teased what might be his biggest collaboration yet. This time Don is blurring the lines of dance music with rap as
