R3HAB remixes Acid Arab’s electrifying ‘Habaytak’, feat. guest vocalist Ghizlane Melih

R3HAB, multi-platinum producer, and DJ released a blazing remix of Acid Arab’s ‘Habaytak’ on 17 November. Fadil El Ghoul, better known by R3HAB, has crafted remixes of the likes of Rihanna, Drake, Taylor Swift, and Calvin Harris. He has put out original tracks with huge collaborations whilst dominating the mainstream with his Dutch-Moroccan influences. Released via [PIAS] Électronique, R3HAB gave the Eastern-inspired sound of the original track a darker, edgier twist. Along with Ghizlane Melih’s vocals, the remix is a mystifying force of high energy. Watch the new Jean-Charles Charavin-directed video here: 

Blazing through the original track with his unique sensibilities but never forgetting to build on Acid Arab’s existing builds and breaks. R3HAB incorporates House elements and throbbing electronic bass, exaggerating the source material’s production whilst highlighting Ghizlane Melih’s gorgeous vocals. In doing so, he not only elevates the track with thumping rhythms but also pays homage to Moroccan heritage and influences. Listen to both the original track and the remix below: 

R3HAB had this to say about his remix: “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!”. Acid Arab chimed in too: “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.”
