Multi-platinum Dutch-Moroccan producer R3HAB collaborates with French-Algerian collective, Acid Arab, on a remix of their hit track ‘Habaytak’ featuring Moroccan singer Ghizlane Melih’s powerful vocals. Released on independent label [PIAS] Electronique, the track came with a music video directed by Jean-Charles Charavin that offers a visually striking and complex production.

“I’ve been a fan of Acid Arab’s work for a long time now, so I was excited when they reached out,” R3HAB says. “I had a lot of fun remixing ‘Habaytak’, it’s always a good challenge to infuse my sound into different genres and musical cultures. I loved the experience and we're excited to finally share it with the world!”

‘Habaytak’, which came out on Acid Arab’s latest album ‘٣’(Trois), showcases their unique ability to weave Western electronic beats onto an Eastern-centric musical foundation. Known for their energetic and dynamic music, Acid Arab’s introduction to the scene came about with the release of their debut album ‘Musique De France’ (2016), which set dancefloors around the world ablaze, widely propelling their careers on a global scale. Emerging from Paris, Acid Arab’s rising popularity in the electronic scene is due to their innovative style that blends acid influences with Arab melodies and rhythms, birthing a cross-cultural exploration of sonic landscapes.

On a similar trailblazing path, Fadil El Ghoul, also known as R3HAB, is a well-respected producer on the rise, whose collaborations with Rihanna, Drake, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris have generated his most notable and breakthrough remixes.

R3HAB’s remix of ‘Habaytak’ is a darker, faster, more House-infused take on the track, that blends percussive, electronic basses, builds and breaks in a hypnotic electric culmination.  Stylistically, R3HAB’s sound tethers between Western mainstream beats and his Moroccan heritage, which he molds into a two-fold sonic duality.
