If you’ve ever looked for the perfect song to define the feeling of cruising your favorite city right before a night out on the town, look no further than R3HAB‘s new single “Downtown,“ which he made in collaboration with Kelvin Jones. Taking a break from the sounds of traditional electronic music, R3HAB cultivates the ultimate cool-kid vibe on “Downtown” with a deep, minimal bassline. The nonchalant and yet groovy mood is complemented by Kelvin’s soulful vocals, which paint a complete picture of being whisked into a night of luxury amid the big city lights. “Downtown” follows R3HAB’s recent big collaboration “Pues” with Luis Fonsi and Sean Paul, which saw the Dutch/Moroccan artist exploring Latin and R&B influences. Check out what Kelvin and R3HAB have to say about their new track below:
“‘Downtown’ is a club-inspired record with a bouncy beat drop and a pulsing bassline that support powerful vocals from Kelvin Jones. We wanted to capture the magic of the perfect night in the city. You’re with your friends, the club’s bass is beating through your blood, your legs are sore from dancing all night, you feel invincible.” – R3HAB
“‘Downtown’ is a mood in a song! We imagined how it would feel to be in New York cruising downtown in a Cadillac and what song you’d want to hear. This inspired the whole song. In an era where every song is overloaded with things going on, we decided to go against that and keep it as minimal and laid back as we could whilst still keeping the groove going.” – Kelvin Jones

EDM Masterpiece “In My Zone” Will Get Stuck In Your Head!
Even though it’s been over 9 months since Tungevaag released this EDM masterpiece, “In My Zone” is still in heavy rotation on both playlists and DJ sets. Definitely, the vocals find a way to hit you right in the ear and the heart.
Believe it or not, the Norwegian producer worked on this tune for almost 6 months. Apparently, he applies the philosophy of working hard in silence and letting the results speak for themselves.
Furthermore, he describes the culmination of the whole project as a dream that came true.
Above all, what caught my attention is certainly the cinematic music video directed by Henry Lipatov. Many fans are comparing the visuals to the popular Fast & Furious film, and they’re probably correct.
On the other hand, if you’re driving a vehicle or motorcycle, this is the ideal track to feeling all the adrenaline running through your veins. Just make sure you’re wearing your seatbelt or helmet properly.
In short, there’s also something catchy about “In My Zone” that quickly gets stuck in your head. His formula is no longer a secret, and I think perseverance and passion were the main elements to obtain such an amazing song.

OnenO And Anastasia Elliot Unveil An Orchestral EDM Sound!
Even if the rhythm is hard to classify in the end, it’s a call to party hard, throw up your hands and stomp your feet. Sonically speaking, it features an artful aesthetic you can feel thanks to the shimmering violins and the piano at the intro and subsequently coming right before the bass drop.
Of course, the whole output wouldn’t be the same without Anastasia’s extraordinary mezzo-soprano range. A very unusual combination between electronic textures and operatic nuances that somehow works!
Stream “The Shattering” via Spotify below.
When circumstances are stormy and your world is falling apart, all you need is motivational music. The verses in “The Shattering” truly represent the encouragement to stop suffering and finally move forward.
Indeed, that’s exactly the purpose of such an upbeat song.
Moreover, the lyrics are based on the Japanese art from Kintsugi. Just as this practice leads you to repair broken pottery, in the same way, this symbolizes that you can find potential after tough times.
Well, this is the hidden message behind a unique composition. Hopefully, it’s the first of many future collaborations.
