Kohen Launches Collab With Kenny Musik, Listen To “Magic Night”
Kohen returns to Alok’s imprint CONTROVERSIA with his deep and progressive Dance-Pop crossover titled “Magic Night,” for which he teamed up with Taiwan-based, Brazilian native artist Kenny Musik. The track is a perfect fusion of underground and radio-friendly elements, opening with velvety vocals that glide above a growling bassline. “Magic Night” feels like that mythical magic carpet ride you grew up – ethereal, energetic, and yet intriguingly dark, at home both on the radio and the dance floor. Kohen previously released on CONTROVERSIA with his single “I Mean Never” with Freakpass and Mikaylin, while Kenny Musik has previously put out tracks on Spinnin’ Records, HEXAGON, Intensity Recordings, and Sony Music.
“This collab started in 2021 when Kenny showed me his idea of ‘Magic Night,’ which was a slap house track and was basically a finished song. I thought that we could take it somewhere else sonically, so we dismantled it and assembled all the parts together differently, redone some of the sounds (not to mention the fact that we changed the kick drum more than 20 times), and after a few studio sessions, ‘Magic Night’ was finished in its current form. The lyrics are about how lights at night can be as rich and vivid as sunlight, which resembles situations in life when during difficult times, one positive situation can change everything overnight.” — Kohen
Throughout his career, Kohen’s music has found homes on labels including CONTROVERSIA, Spinnin’ Records, Musical Freedom, Hexagon, STMPD RCRDS, Sony, Universal Music, and Som Livre. His dynamic style garnered him support from the likes of David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Tiesto, Hardwell, and Alok himself. He’s been releasing on CONTROVERSIA since 2020, when he debuted with his now-hit track “Waiting” (which amassed 2,1M streams on Spotify). Kohen has also remixed Alok’s “Wherever You Go” in collaboration with Bhaskar for an exclusive release with Amazon Music and collaborated with Alok and Lithuanian artist Gaullin in the cover of Era’s “Ameno” (4,3M streams on Spotify). He’s also recently collaborated with Vintage Culture, Liu, Vinne, Felguk, as well as created official remixes for the likes of Martin Garrix, Jason Derulo, Bhaskar, Dubdogz, Vintage Culture, and Cat Dealers.

R3HAB & World’s First Global Pop Group Now United Drop “Run Till Dark”
R3HAB and Now United once again team up in the studio for their new Dance-Pop single “Run Till Dark,” out now via Liquid State. With the veteran producer’s chameleon-esque prowess when it comes to mastering different styles of music, R3HAB fuses breezy melodies and a soft, undulating bassline to bring a worldly, organic feeling to this euphonious song. Now United’s 18 international artists represent many different cultures and aspects of the world, which they bring to “Run Till Dark”‘s emotive and hopeful lyrics. Filmed in northwest Saudi Arabia’s ancient city of AlUla, the accompanying music video tells a story of R3HAB on a pilgrimage for the source of a song, and after journeying all day, has an incredible celebration of music with Now United. No matter if you’re a fan of electronic or softer styles, “Run Till Dark” is truly a feel-good gem, following R3HAB’s collaboration with Afrojack “Shockwave,” and on the flip side, Now United’s most recent “Forever United Tour” which saw the global pop group performing at legendary venues in São Paulo, Brazil (Allianz Parque Stadium), and Lisbon, Portugal (Altice Arena). In the past, R3HAB has also produced and written the following hit singles for Now United – “Jump” (over 57M views on Youtube) and “One Love” (54M views).
“I have always been a huge fan of how Now United represents so many cultures in harmony, so I’m beyond excited to join forces again for our new single ‘Run Till Dark’ because their vibrant pop energy pairs naturally with my vision of dance-pop. In “Run Till Dark,” we tap into the unique musical pulse the world has to offer, which we captured in our new music video shot in the mesmerizing oases of Alula. Our hope is that listeners realize we’re all running to the same pulse and, in this moment, feel how connected we are.” — R3HAB
