Fadil El Ghoul better known by his stage name R3HAB, is a Dutch DJ and record producer of Moroccan origin. Alongside Afrojack and Chuckie, R3hab is one of the proponents of the modern “Dutch house” subgenre, although his style and sound at the time were usually darker, somewhat reminiscent of early psytrance or “gabber” compositions.
R3HAB began his career in late 2007 while producing the track ‘Mrkrstft’ with Hardwell. One of the main influences R3hab has listed is the duo Infected Mushroom, whose music has been on the international scene since 1999.
From the influential Dutch circuit to his place at the forefront of global dance music, R3HAB now stands for a brand everyone can sink their teeth into. Catapulted into the limelight courtesy of a string of successful original material and remixes, his is a stamp of quality recognized on club floors, festival stages and the digital market alike. Sporting an agenda for big sounds with melodic stamina, 2015 marks another year in which Holland’s hottest export is dropping anchor on every corner of the globe.
With over 100+million Soundcloud streams, 26+million Spotify streams and six #1 singles in 2014 topping the Beatport Top 100 as well as the fourth highest selling artist on Beatport of 2014, the heavyweight producer balanced chart topping original material as well as a collaborative spot on Calvin Harris’s Motion album.
Remixing everyone from Beyonce, Calvin Harris, Rihanna, Axwell ^ Ingosso and John Legend along the way, R3HAB remained a beacon as to where evolving artists could adapt and engage new and exciting territory whilst staying true to the dance floor. An integral element of this reliable brand can still be found on the club floor, but R3HAB’s live experience has found further room to excel and engage.
After playing to over 1.9 million fans in 2014, his return to Coachella for 2015 marks another landmark in the globetrotting DJ’s playbook, with further global festival action complimenting a staggering international tour schedule throughout the year ahead. With a brand new night and day residency for LiFE Nightclub and Foxtail Pool Club at SLS Vegas and yet more landmark musical artillery to come throughout the year, there are no signs of the Dutch heavyweight hitting the brakes anytime soon. Where future proofing an experience for the masses without compromising on the energy is concerned, R3HAB has all bases covered. The Dutch-Moroccan superstar DJ just released THREE new singles on February 2, 2016 back to back and features: CIARA, KSHMR, and BURNS via Spinnin’ Records.
