The relentless energy of Dutch house’s leading figure of the new wave of DJ’s currently emerging continues to luxuriate as he ups the stakes for a brand-new remix treatment on Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s progressive Calling anthem. Being a producer behind such ravishing club bangers as Prutataaa, Sending My Love and a row of remix cuts out of  Without  You and Maximal Crazy to name a few, R3hab has indisputably become a man worthy of upholding the crown of the next pioneer, of Holland’s club music scene, to be. His uniquely knitted hit productions are of as high of a standard to be compared with the productions of any top-tier icon and has established himself as a hard-working and massively talented producer at the very heart of clubland. The forte of R3hab being his cacophonic sounding chords, thick underlayers and monstrous sounds, the essential aspirant of the next generation of Dutch house lays his hands on one of 2011’s most renowned singles – Calling. Despite the fact that the original’s progression is rather hard to remix, the producer from Holland’s holy Grail of successful DJ’s – Breda – has made it clear there is no stopping his steady crusade this year as he teams up with Swanky Tunes, the Russian trio primarily known by Their Law, Together, Phantom and the Smolengrad / United EP, yet again to now turn the hottest offering from Refune Records to date into a full-on, rugged peak-timer to enact their signature sounds further.

Not only did Chuckie join Pete Tong for this week’s Essential Selection, Laidback Luke Rob da Bank and Armin van Buuren Judge Jules, but Friday night’s honouring of Holland’s prominent Dutch house scene on BBC Radio 1 also offered a flash-back on last week’s significant Amsterdam Dance Event with a bunch of live sets making up this week’s Essential Mix special. And it sure was an exclusive pick of Holland’s hotly tipped forefronters that was offered, including the likes of Afrojack, R3hab, Sidney Samson and Sander van Doorn to name a few.

Giving his new single alongside Shermanology, titled Can’t Stop Me Now, a spin, the label head of Wall Recordings, Afrojack, served his fellow native’s up with a discerning selection of his current top tunes. R3hab, the utterly talented and rapidly developing DJ and producer currently touring the states, showcased a pallette of his recent hit productions as well as the upcoming Dada Life take one of his more essential releases, Prutataaa. The man behind the successful release of Riverside, Sidney Samson, boasted his distinguished liking for the strident sounds of Dutch house. And last but not least, the trance turned trouse DJ Sander van Doorn returned to his fellow Netherlands for a 90 minute dynamic and hard-hitting set.

Becoming a label platform of the highest notch thanks to an exclusive scope of nothing but club- and festival anthems, Musical Freedom Records, with a row of hits like Zero 76, Future Folk, Mush Mush, Epic and K2 out, brings back Tiësto’s recently released fifth single of 2011 – Maximal Crazy – for a revision from the tribe behind Wall’s tremendous Sending My Love single – R3hab and Swanky Tunes. The Wall installment that’s currently awaiting a horde of remixes to be released, including the recently uncovered one from Kaskade, has become their forte over the past two months and from the looks of its recurrent playlistings from heavyweights like Swedish House Mafia, its advancement is still on the rise.

The dominating arpeggio of the original is disassembled for a complete remake with only a couple of leading elements remaining. Flipping from an uplifting breakdown and anthemic chords into a rough, dark and throbbingly sweeping ambience of all the minor and major ingredients to fulfil a full-on set weapon of floor filling ability. the remix is set to release on October 26th via the record imprint of Tiësto, have a listen!

Preview: R3hab – The Bottle Song (DJ Funkadelic Remix) [Wall Recrods]

The final portion of this year has been all about R3hab, after emerging on to the scene so quickly with little help from the Dirty Dutch leaders, Dj R3hab has had incredible year. With numerous releases on Afrojack’s very own ‘Wall Records‘ such as ‘The Bottle Song‘, ‘Prutataa‘ and ‘Sending My Love‘ that featured ‘Max C‘ on the vocals, has shown us that R3hab is able to climb to the top and stay among some of the highest and well respected Dutch djs out there. With numerous amounts of remixes, track, that have been supported by the likes of Afrojack, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia and many remix request coming from top Pop artist such as Jennifer Lopez, Gloria Estefan, there aren’t any doubt that he will be around from awhile.

After having his single ‘The Bottle Song‘ released in April by the likes of ‘Wall Records’, R3hab’s single is back and this time with a twist curtsy by the man Dj Funkadelic. With support coming by Tiesto and Hardwell, Funkadelic kept the roots of R3hab’s track and added a little more of a big room sound to crunch club speakers across the globe. With no release date mentioned, stay tuned for some additional news and enjoy the preview.

Preview: Benny Benassi ft Gary Go – Close To Me (R3hab Remix)

Brand new Preview by emerging artist R3hab, who once again showcases his talent as he is able to extrapolate the best out of every song he remixes. Sadly this clip being only  1 minute long doesn’t allow us to hear the full scope of Benny Benassi’s Close to me completely remixed, but all I can say is that it sounds incredibly promising. I’ve been listening to this preview on repeat since it’s been released and am still not tired of it. Can not wait for the full release later this october.





Release: Erick Morillo & Eddie Thoneick ft. Shawnee Taylor – Stronger (Nicky Romero Remix)

Even though the likes of Alesso and R3hab are stealing most of the limelight it is difficult to forget Nicky Romero who throughout this year has reaffirmed his position as being a house master. As always Romero does what he does best, with powerful beats and a strong lead synth, this is exactly what this track needed, to become an even bigger hit.
