It’s remix time everyone! This week we are moving back over to the CYB3RPVNK label to check out R3HAB’s latest track, providing his talents to cover the late XXXTentacion’s “BAD!” While you may not have heard of R3HAB since his career started seven years ago, this Dutch/Moroccan producer has been evolving and growing in the grassroots of the modern music community. Since his adventure began, R3HAB has toured some of the best clubs in the world and amassed more than 300 million streams of his debut album. What is actually amazing however is that R3HAB was able to accomplish this with no major label backing, only working through his CYB3RPVNK imprint.
Back at it again, R3HAB has pumped out yet another track breaking down these genre barriers that keep artists in a box. R3HAB takes his high-energy electronics and applies it to XXXTentacion’s sad-boy rap style to completely change the tone of the track. While X’s vocal work still remains, R3HAB as completely warped the track into a dance-floor Brazillian bounce bop. Since this cover is the first off of R3HAB’s upcoming Skins album, we can’t wait to hear the rest. R3HAB, you almost have us addicted.
