I had the opportunity to sit down for a chat with Dutch DJ & record producer of Moroccan origin, Fadil El Ghoul better known by his stage name R3HAB, just before his DJ set at Coachella. Check out the video above & enjoy our conversation.
Who is Fadil El Ghoul aka R3HAB?
R3HAB began his career in late 2007 while producing the track ‘Mrkrstft’ with Hardwell. One of the main influences R3hab has listed is the duo Infected Mushroom, whose music has been on the international scene since 1999. From the influential Dutch circuit to his place at the forefront of global dance music, R3HAB now stands for a brand everyone can sink their teeth into.
Catapulted into the limelight courtesy of a string of successful original material & remixes, his is a stamp of quality recognized on club floors, festival stages & the digital market alike. Sporting an agenda for big sounds with melodic stamina, 2015 marks another year in which Holland’s hottest export is dropping anchor on every corner of the globe.
Remixing everyone from Beyonce, Calvin Harris, Rihanna, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, John Legend, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift & Steve Aoki along the way, R3HAB remained a beacon as to where evolving artists could adapt & engage new & exciting territory whilst staying true to the dance floor. An integral element of this reliable brand can still be found on the club floor, but R3HAB’s live experience has found further room to excel & engage.
After playing to over 1.9 million fans in 2014, his return to Coachella for 2015 marks another landmark in the globetrotting DJ’s playbook, with further global festival action complimenting a staggering international tour schedule throughout the year ahead.
With a brand new night & day residency for LiFE Nightclub and Foxtail Pool Club at SLS Vegas & yet more landmark musical artillery to come throughout the year, there are no signs of the Dutch heavyweight hitting the brakes anytime soon.
