It’s almost the end of the January and we have already witnessed some great releases from the artists. Be it 7 Rings by Ariana Grande or Song Request by Lee Sora and Suga, 2019 seems to be a promising year for music lovers.
R3HAB too is prepared to wow his fans. A few days ago, the DJ announced the release of his EP “Radio Silence”, featuring the latest single of the same name from his album “The Wave”.
“Radio Silence” showcases Canadian pop singer Jocelyn Alice, whose stunning vocals combine with organic instrumentals to weave a wistful tale of loneliness and escapism that is easily relatable. R3HAB incorporates a soft uptempo drop to add a swell of hopefulness, leaving the listener with the inherent knowledge that, despite hardships, life is still beautiful. The EP also has several remixes by emerging artists – Ryan Riback, King Arthur, Rainer + Grimm, D-Wayne and Matthew Hill, all of who give it their unique spin.
Following the release of “Radio Silence,” R3HAB will kick off his “The Wave” North American tour on February 2nd, hitting iconic venues such as Echostage in Washington DC, Mezzanine in San Francisco and the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, to name a few.
The single beautifully vocalizes the anxiety of the character as she finds it difficult to focus on life after receiving a hard blow. The anxiety is accompanied by the sense of being lost, with and without people. Both lyrically and sonically, “Radio Silence” is a captivating track.
Over the last seven years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist R3HAB has been building a formidable grassroots following; his tracks have reached the top of many a list, his talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard magazines, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs all without the backing of a formal record label.
In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album “Trouble” through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over 300 million streams globally and officially established R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters with at least one LP under their belt. He made number 12 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2018, topping the charts with tracks like “Lullaby” and “Hold On Tight.” And on his sophomore album “The Wave,” – also over 200 million streams now – R3HAB reveals more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, telling the world that there is still much more to come.
