I hope people will like it as much as I do!” – Astrid S

“Working with R3HAB on “Be Okay” earlier this year was a great experience, so jumping on a song with both, R3HAB again and Astrid S, is something that gets me super excited for “Am I The Only One” to come out” – HRVY

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. Keep an eye out for what’s up to next! The lyrical side of “Am I The Only One” will hit home for anyone who has ever experienced a prospective relationship fall apart from a lack of vulnerability. Follow us on socials Both artists are the future of pop music, and I always love to work with talented people like that.” – R3HAB

“I’m so happy to be a part of this song with R3HAB and HRVY! 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. For his newest crossover single, R3HAB teams up with European pop sensations – Norwegian Astrid S and British HRVY, on “Am I The Only One.” It’s a modern dance-pop smash, delivering organic melodies and a groovy breakdown complemented by emotive vocal performances by Astrid S and HRVY, which gives a unique guy-and-girl perspective on a relationship. With his combination of innate artistry and innovative attitude, R3HAB is only beginning his journey. “Am I The Only One” is that song, and we’re both happy that HRVY was also excited to jump in. HRVY and I also worked together this year on “Be Okay,” released on my label CYB3RPVNK.

Following on several top-drawer singles released through their ‘Nights Like This EP’, ‘Like Gold’ marks the next dance-pop hybrid track from Loud Luxury. Everything in the track came together perfectly. Hotly anticipated since the release of their ‘Nights Like This EP’ and ‘Aftertaste’ (feat.

Steff Da Campo & 71 Digits revamp dance classic!

By EDM Nations – October 30, 2020 2 0

It meant the breakthrough of Dutch act Hi_Tack, making international waves with ‘Say Say Say (Waiting 4 U)’, using vocal lines of Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney’s eponymous 80’s hit song. Follow us on socials Safe to say, this was a legendary record in several ways. It’s a hot ride, and a more than respectful tribute to one of Spinnin’s (and dance music in general, for that matter) milestone records. Already a classic by its original standards, Hi_Tack’s 2006 hit tune ‘Say Say Say (Waiting 4 U)’ has now received an incredible remix treatment by Dutch DJ/producer Steff Da Campo and mystery act 71 Digits. Blended with an upwinding house groove, the record turned into a club favorite in the mid zeroes, followed by massive radio support in 2006. It’s been a landmark record since its release, and with its 15th anniversary in sight, any new remix of the track should be something special. Incorporating the original’s lyrics, they add a bouncy groove, gritty bassline and upwinding percussion, turning an already unforgettable melody into a fresh 2020 guise. Well, with Steff Da Campo and 71 Digits it seems to be in the right hands. So, for both artist and label this tune is a special one. We joined forces with Steff Da Campo to get that perfect crossover between pumping club sounds and a slappy radio vibe, with respect for the original.” – 71 Digits“Nearly 15 years after its release we were looking for a real dope remix to breathe new life into our 2006 classic. Together, they’ve taken the energy and vocally driven melody of the original to create a mesmerizing, fresh piece of dance music -heavy on the bass, and ready to rock the house (again). Both are renowned for turning timeless vocal tracks into blistering dance gems, and ‘Say Say Say (Waiting 4 U)’ proves to be the perfect tune for these specialists. This also meant mainstream success for Spinnin’ Records, back then still a small, upcoming dance record company. 71 Digits and Steff Da Campo delivered a spot on remix and we are thrilled with the result and can’t wait for this belter to drop!” – Hi_Tack. We revisited this classic together and I am very happy with how it turned out!” – Steff Da Campo“It was an absolute honor to remix this classic track.   

“Hi-Tack, 71 Digits and I go way back.
