SLANDER trade hard-hitting basslines for melodic Dubstep vibes and emotive vocals on their fourth collaboration with Dylan Matthew, “Love Is Gone”, on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s label Gud Vibrations. The talented duo weaves cinematic chords and delicate piano keys with exquisite instrumental melodies through the majority of the track, serving as a backdrop to Matthew’s raw and emotional vocal performance. In a departure from festival anthems and a testament to SLANDER’s dynamic abilities as producers, “Love is Gone” is very much a heartbreak track, but one that lifts listeners from the doldrums into the realms of catharsis. Accompanying the track is its ethereal music video, in which fans can join a lone spaceman on a journey through worlds in search of that one metaphorical star. The video captures the song’s wistful and lost ethos with vibrant visuals of both space and faraway lands, catapulting the viewer into the inspiration in SLANDER and Matthew’s heads. The new release follows SLANDER and Dylan Matthew’s earlier collaborations – 2017’s “Without You” (released on Monstercat) and 2018’s “Hate Being Alone” and “First Time” with Seven Lions & Dabin (released on Ophelia). With an indeed one-of-a-kind working relationship between these artists, we hope there will be more projects coming soon!
“‘Love Is Gone’ is our biggest endeavor to date. The accompanying video has been in the works for the past 3 years and is comprised entirely of movie level CGI. Just the rendering process took over 3 months to complete. We are thrilled to finally give our fans a glimpse into this new universe we are creating for them, which comprises our new show visuals, this video, and a secret future project. We’ve been tight lipped about all of this until now and we are so happy to finally reveal some pieces to the story. This one has been a long time coming and we can’t wait to slowly reveal what’s next! Shout out to Roboto for absolutely crushing the video and showing us that there really is no limit on human creativity if enough time and effort is laid down. Also we would like to thank our long-time collaborator Dylan Matthew for once again delivering a stellar vocal performance. At this moment, we are the most proud we have ever been of a project, and we hope you guys enjoy the fruits of our labor.” – SLANDER
“It is great to see this finally coming out. I want to thank all the artists involved in this project because they are integral parts of it. Can’t wait to show to show you what else is in store! Also RIP to all the GPU’s that passed away in the making of this video.” – Roboto

Navarra Returns To Protocol Recordings With Upbeat, Emotive Big Room Tune “Repeat”
Dutch DJ and Producer Navarra is back on Protocol Recordings for the first time in two years with his new single “Repeat”, an upbeat and groovy Big Room tune that perfectly exemplifies the energetic and uplifting ethos of the genre. Drawing upon ethereal vocals, groovy melodies, and a bouncy bassline, Navarra merges electronic and pop elements to expertly deliver a track that is both emotive and dancefloor-friendly. “Repeat” pivots back into the EDM realm following Navarra’s 2018’s electronic-pop releases “Live Like This” with Justin Mylo and “Beautiful Day” with Cara Melin, or his 2016’s “Crossroads” – a collaboration with Nicky Romero himself. Press play on “Repeat” and let Navarra’s atmospheric melodies sweep you away.

Among them is Navarra, the Dutch artist who got his start at the renowned music school “Herman Brood Academie.” With both classical music and DJ experience, Navarra’s talent lies in creating a progressive pop sound that still enthralls the crowd during a live set. “Repeat” is his third release on the label, following his 2017 remix of Sam Void’s “On My Mind” and his 2016’s notable debut “Crossroads.” Keep an eye out for releases from Navarra coming later this year!

The Debut Of Cityzen, A New Exciting Act From R3HAB’s CYB3RPVNK Imprint
The newest project from R3HAB‘s CYB3RPVNK imprint comes in the form of the mysterious Cityzen, an artist who exists in the parallel of past and future and whose sound is a reflection of all that has been and all that will be. Cityzen introduces himself to the world with the release of his debut track “Sirius”, a driving Big Room timebomb that merges gravelly bass and retro vocal snippets with high-energy modern synths to make a unique, dancefloor-friendly track that will delight both veterans and novice fans of electronic music. Keep an eye out for the next drop from CYB3RPVNK’s newest family member, and perhaps the most intriguing one yet!
Although not much is known about Cityzen yet, we can be extremely positive about three noticeable attributes: his affinity for the color red, unique glasses, and his desire to give people the intense beats that one would imagine hearing on the metallic streets of a futuristic metropolitan. Perhaps Cityzen (aka СИТИЗЕН) can live in the past and the future at the same time, giving him the ability to merge vintage hardware like Moog synthesizers with futuristic house rhythms of the modern age. If “Sirius” is any indication, Cityzen is on the verge of something huge and previously unimagined, and all the world can do is wait. Armed with his sparkling glasses and affinity for the color red, Cityzen brings to life a crossover of old and new that will become the unique sound of the next generation.

R3HAB & Norwegian Star Julie Bergan Join Forces For Uplifting Vocal Track
R3HAB and acclaimed Norwegian singer Julie Bergan have teamed up for their new vocal track “Don’t Give Up On Me Now”. The song delivers a dose of warm weather vibes with breezy, organic instrumentals that undulate beneath Bergan’s powerful solos, showcasing her all-star voice with soulful lyrics. Romantic at its heart, “Don’t Give Up On Me Now” carries an inspiring, hopeful tone bolstered by R3HAB’s bouncy and melodic drop. This is R3HAB’s first collaboration with Bergan, who has experienced massive success in Norway and has earned multiple platinum records, Spellemann Award (the Norwegian equivalent of The Grammy Awards) and has amassed over 320 million streams on Spotify. After listening to “Don’t Give Up On Me Now,” we hope this will be the first of much more music together!
Over the last seven years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul – better known as R3HAB – has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music. 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, 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 a half billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters. He made number 12 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2018, topping the charts with tracks like “Lullaby” and “Hold On Tight,” while his sophomore album “The Wave,” revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 200M streams in its first few months of release – leading to its North American sold-out tour of the same name.

After Joint Performance At Coachella NGHTMRE Drops His Remix Of Oliver Tree’s “Hurt”
NGHTMRE continues to ride the high of his groundbreaking performances with the release of his official remix of Oliver Tree‘s “Hurt” via Warner Music/Atlantic Records. The two artists performed the new version of the song for the first time live at Coachella last month as part of Oliver’s surprise guest appearance during NGHTMRE’s set, which was a hit with the crowd inside the packed Sahara Tent. NGHTMRE lends his signature style to “Hurt” through cinematic synths and melodic basslines, which pair dramatically with Tree’s raw vocals. With over 20M streams on Spotify alone, the original version of the track is one of Oliver Tree’s the most successful releases to date, and NGHTMRE’s remix is set to be one of this summer’s electronic anthems.
“I found Oliver Tree’s music last year and loved it! As soon as I heard “Hurt” I knew I wanted to make a remix that was melodic and vibey! Finally getting to meet him at Coachella and performing the song together was a dream come true!” – NGHTMRE
NGHTMRE has evolved into a real force of nature over the last several years – between hit collaborations, originals and the launch of his own label, the LA-based artist has earned his position as one of the bass music’s leading faces. He recently collaborated with A$AP Ferg on “REDLIGHT” and Shaquille O’Neal & Lil Jon on “BANG,” and has teamed up with heavyweights like Big Gigantic, The Chainsmokers, Wiz Khalifa, PnB Rock, and Dillon Francis. His dynamic, always dancefloor-friendly sound and fast-paced, exhilarating live sets have earned him a loyal fanbase, resulting in a packed tour schedule that includes a Hakkasan Las Vegas residency, Lollapalooza, EDC, Electric Zoo, Mysteryland, Creamfields, Amnesia Ibiza, Shambhala, Middlelands, Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, Holy Ship!, and Tomorrowland, as well as his own Gud Vibrations multi-event series with SLANDER. NGHTMRE continues his meteoric rise to the top. Stay tuned for his upcoming announcements and new music coming soon!

Skytech Teams Up With Tommy Jayden On Upbeat Festival Anthem “Looking At Me”
The latest from R3HAB’s CYB3RPVNK camp is label veteran Skytech and newcomer Tommy Jayden‘s original track “Looking at Me” and it might just be your summer festival anthem. The new release delivers plenty of eclectic, groovy bass and futuristic sounds effects, elaborating on the Skytech’s melodic and yet formidable sound. “Looking at Me” follows Skytech’s remix for R3HAB & MOTi’s “Up All Night” and original release “Out of my Mind.” The CYB3RPVNK boss is always actively looking for forward-thinking, fresh talent, with the label serving as a platform for young producers to gain exposure for their music.
Mateusz Dziewulski – better known by his artist name Skytech – is already a household name in his home country of Poland, and the rest of the world is soon to follow. His name first appeared on the map when R3HAB discovered his original track “Tiger” and then helped Skytech to put final production touches on it, proving to be a winning team after “Tiger” skyrocketed to over 100M streams on all platforms. Since then, the two have worked on numerous tracks together via the CYB3RPVNK imprint, fusing their sounds to make music that is club and festival friendly while never sacrificing substance and soul. Since then, Skytech has been touring around the world, increasing his global footprint with every electrifying live performance. In 2017, Skytech was the most streamed Polish act on Spotify and debuted at Tomorrowland, while in 2018 he came in a close second on the Polish Spotify charts right after Frideric Chopin. He’s already off to a strong start and is committed to releasing more music than ever in 2019, so this year is looking to be the best yet.
