Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Rework
Just in time to cure the winter blues, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike + R3HAB team up to put a spin on a classic with their rework of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. The three all-star producers infuse the original’s singsong melodies with a deep, groovy bassline and percussive synths during the chorus, complementing the dance-friendly vibes with distorted vocals. This is not the childhood tune of your memories; the “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” makes for a merry and adult-friendly version of the old favorite. Although the continuing global pandemic has many of us celebrating differently (and distantly) this year, R3HAB and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike wanted to bring their listeners a little bit of winter joy.

“It’s always a good time working with Dimitri & Mike, and we’re excited to share our version of this classic record with everyone. We want this to be a gift to our listeners and a reminder that winter is a season for happiness and togetherness. Be generous and good to each other, and remember good things are ahead.” – R3HAB

“It’s always fun getting in the studio with R3HAB. We have a great synergy and know each other’s strengths, so the ideas always flow naturally. After a tough year, we hope we can spread some positivity over winter and give something back to the people that continue to support us.” – Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike

Dutch/Moroccan DJ and producer Fadi El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB, has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the better part of the last decade. From his breakthrough hit remix of Afrojack, Pitbull and Ne-Yo’s “Give Me Everything” to his dance anthems, such as “All Around The World (La La La)” and “Lullaby,” which have collectively amassed over 600M streams, to his collaborations with the likes of ZAYN, Andy Grammer, Sofia Carson, Timmy Trumpet and more, R3HAB has proven to be one of the most talented and forward-thinking artists in the game. He partnered with Spotify and GATTÜSO to create the first-ever official “mint” single release. In 2016 he founded his label CYB3RPVNK, which passed one billion streams on its catalog within the first two years since its inception. R3HAB himself continues to evolve and diversify his sound by working with a variety of artists around the globe, experimenting with everything from hip-hop to pop through his collaborations. With his combination of innate artistry and innovative attitude, R3HAB is continuing his journey. Keep an eye out for what’s next!

Since their debut in 2007, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have been making waves with hits like “The Hum,” “Higher Place” in collaboration with Neo, and “Hey Baby” with Diplo, all of which went Platinum and spent record amounts of time on the Billboard Dance chart. Further flexing their prowess, the brothers teamed up with Hans Zimmer for a rework of “Dead Men Tell No Tales” from the 5th installment of Pirates of the Caribbean. Then teamed up with David Guetta and Kiiara on “Complicated,” which has almost 150 million streams on Spotify and over 80 million Youtube views, and released one of the biggest songs of the summer 2019 “Instagram,” which also featured David Guetta, Afro Bros, Daddy Yankee and Natti Natasha. Pairing these chart-topping accomplishments with a packed tour schedule that has included Tomorrowland, EXIT festival, Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, and more, the wDimitri Vegas & Like Mike & R3HAB rework classic “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”orld has fallen in love with the duo’s high-energy performances and dynamic style. Always evolving with the times, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are certainly ones to watch.

Showtek Send Important Message With New Single “Show Some Love”

Published

Show Some Love by Showtek
Dutch duo Showtek brings a message of hope to the current tumultuous global landscape with their new track “Show Some Love” ft. sonofsteve, out now on their label Skink. Opening with a classic progressive buildup, Showtek quickly proves their ability to step outside of the genre by incorporating a deep, funky bassline and organic instrumental melodies to the track’s soulful vocals. With lyrics like “if there is just one word that will always win, no matter where you’re from, the color of your skin,” the duo uses their music to spread a message of inclusivity, positivity, and love that has always been at the heart of dance music culture – and the world needs it now more than ever. True to Showtek’s dynamic style, “Show Some Love” is an emotional vocal dance track that also resonates on the dance floor. Read on for the inspiration behind the new single:

“With this song we’re continuing to spread a positive message through our music, that hopefully brings people together in a time of divide. This year has been turbulent for everybody. Not only because of the pandemic, but also because of the systemic racism that has finally been brought to light. We felt it was time to spread some love and give the people something positive to listen to. We want our fans to know that we love them no matter what skin color, religion, sexuality or gender. We believe in a world where everybody is treated equally and where you can live together in our differences, that’s what makes us all beautiful.”

Brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen – better known together as Showtek – have made a name for themselves in the international dance scene with their high-energy, beat-driven style that has produced many a festival anthem. Their initial success in the hardstyle realm with tracks like “FTS” made them a household name, and they have continued to develop and evolve their style into the dynamic, genre-crossing sound we know and love today. Their hits such as “Believer” with Major Lazer (which is certified Gold), “Booyah” or “Bad” with David Guetta, their single “We Like To Party,” and their cover of Moby’s “Natural Blues” have become dance classics heard around the world. The brothers lead their label Skink, which has releases from the likes of Henry Fong, Gammer, Sidney Samson, MAKJ, and more. Showtek has proven again that they are nowhere near being finished their musical journey, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

electronic anthem "Dreams" by John Lynx
John Lynx
is no stranger to producing euphoric basslines and emotional-filled masterpieces. With that in mind, the Chicagoan producer joins forces with Sergi Yaro to blow up the speakers once again. Effectively, “Dreams” is the kind of pop-centric EDM paired with excellent vocal hooks that help you stay motivated. If you think pursuing one’s dreams is important and necessary in life, then this new electronic anthem will move your soul to the highest vibration level.

The Tiesto and Armin van Buuren’s influence is notable on “Dreams” but it truly stands alone with its solid soundscape. Additionally, listeners can feel the striking climax right when the beats drop. As well as the magma of vibrant melodies that fades into the background of this electronic anthem. All in all, these sonic elements are there with the aim of energizing your mind and your will to build a better future. With a growing fanbase over the last 10 years, John Lynx finally dares to empower other creative musicians to do everything they can in order to achieve their goals, visions, and plans.

«Inspiration for “Dreams” is to never give up on them. There have been many times in my life I have been turned down to DJ or getting my music signed. I never gave up on those dreams, and now it’s become a reality. I am very happy I never quit.» – John Lynx

Hooked by Danny Spade
Just in case you haven’t checked it out yet, Danny Spade brings you feel-good vibes through his new song, “Hooked. In the first couple of seconds, its impressive intro will catch your attention. Designing catchy melodic elements, the music producer from Connecticut teams up with Tara Louise who stands out for her gorgeous vocals. Actually, there are some cuts that just make you feel happy immediately, and “Hooked” is one of them. Moreover, I love how he creates a bridge between EDM and Pop by reshaping and breaking up the traditional stuff you’re used to hearing on the radio.

Whoever listens to this cool tune might realize the love-themed lyrics and the whole composition is really well executed. Without a doubt, Danny is a rising talent that needs to be on everyone’s radar. “Hooked” embodies an effervescent delivery hooking listeners in no time. It is not in vain that his first single “Effort” reached over 114K streams on Spotify. This being said, I think every mountain top is within his reach if he keeps climbing with such great releases.
