Multi-platinum DJ/ producer R3HAB adds his dark energy and Dutch-Moroccan influence to remix the insanely catchy “Habaytak” by Acid Arab. The French-Algerian collective are renowned for their boundary-breaking music, and this riveting collaboration, enriched by the soaring vocals of Moroccan diva Ghizlane Melih and released on [PIAS] Électronique, guarantees to set dancefloors and streaming platforms ablaze.
‘Habaytak’ (feat Ghizlane Melih): R3HAB has given the energetic, hook-packed, hypnotically percussive, Eastern infused original, a faster, darker vibe, with a more explicit House beat, a more growling, twanging electronic bass, and existing builds and breaks intensified to teeth-tingling levels, while fully respecting the original’s culture, and Melih’s gorgeous vocals which still take centre stage.
‘I’ve been a fan of Acid Arab’s work for a long time now, so I was excited when they reached out. I had a lot of fun remixing ‘Habaytak’, it’s always a good challenge to infuse my sound into different genres and musical cultures. I loved the experience and we’re excited to finally share it with the world!’ —R3HAB
‘This mix of R3HAB’s more mainstream sound with our Arabic inspired electronic music, has spawned a unique and potentially massive track. We’re honoured that R3HAB agreed to add his special touch and individual vibe to our track. We’re proud to see more musical boundaries fall.’ — Acid Arab
