Powerhouse producer, renowned clubbing brand and outright festival favorite, the past three years have proven a wild ride for Dutch heavyweight R3HAB. Ascending the industry with a signature take on the big room sound, his studio achievements and onstage aura have made him essential to that bigger picture in electronic dance music. It’s a movement that resonates with DJs and partygoers alike. Here in 2014, its impact is being felt at every corner of the globe. A three-time IDMA winner who has risen through the ranks of ‘Breakthrough Artist,’ ‘Best Full-Length mixer’ and ‘Best Remixer,’ R3HAB’s is a success story like few others.

From Beatport number ones to sold-out crowds, his brand spotlights the enthusiasm not only of a new generation of dance fans, but an artist who makes the masses want to move. When all is said and done, those big and melodically charged anthems have become a calling card that remains as recognizable on dance floors as it does adaptable to the changing tides of electronic dance music. Those sharp productions come with an ability to keep both the big room and commercial market spinning simultaneously. No label untouchable, no crossover impossible, 2014 has been a poster boy example of that special grasp he holds on the industry. He’s kept the clubs in tow with a wave of Beatport chart-toppers, probed the commercial market with the aptly titled “Unstoppable” alongside Eva Simons, been entrusted with remixes for Rita Ora and donned his hand to Calvin Harris’ seasonal anthem “Summer.” Holding the best of both worlds doesn’t come easily, but in R3HAB’s hands the task sounds ever so sweet.

The progression of his sound has led to a serious live presence, one that has R3HAB playing across the continents on a whirlwind basis. Past duties at Tomorrowland, Future Music Creamfields and Summerburst, have the globetrotting talent leaving no continent untouched in 2014. With as much pull on the North American scene as he does on the European circuit, those air miles come with a proven ability to hold any given crowd thrown in front of him.

With a rollercoaster ride of new music, global expansion and countless crazy memories ahead of him, R3HAB’s remains an essential European club export ready to take the flag as Holland’s next great electronic dance champion.

Ummet Ozcan

In an age where very few artists break the mold and truly shine through as unique and innovative, Dutch/Turkish star Ummet Ozcan is one of the exceptions to the rule. Not only because of his advanced studio knowledge and the impressive string of dance floor hits this resulted in, it’s also thanks to his enduring presence at worldwide mainstages these last years. A success story that’s about to enter new grounds…

Growing up in the known epicentre of dance music, The Netherlands, it isn’t difficult for Ozcan (1982) to plug into dance music at a young age. “The EDM scene has been very big here since I was a teenager. We’ve had dance music playing on radio stations for over 20 years now”, he explains. So, as soon as he’s good and ready, music starts to come out of Ozcan’s studio.

It won’t take long before he gets the attention he deserves. Since achieving his first major success in 2011 with ‘Reboot’, which spends seven weeks at #1 on Beatport, the veteran DJ’s major hits have been sampled in his peers’ radio podcasts and played at festival mainstages all over the world.

In 2012 his genre-­‐defying #1 smash hit ‘The Box’ is one of the most played records at EDC Las Vegas, while a year later his W&W collab ‘The Code’ is one of the most popular tracks at Ultra Music Festival 2013, followed by the R3hab co-­‐produced, #1 Beatport hit ‘Revolution’ and the remix of Fatboy Slim’s ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’ together with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.

Instantaneous hits

In 2014 Ozcan sees another amount of his tracks reach the highest chart positions. ‘Raise Your Hands’, ‘Smash’ and ‘Superwave’ all become instantaneous hits, racking up millions of YouTube views and making it to #1 on Beatport. It’s no surprise that he’s an in demand talent who’s playing to an international market with gigs at world-­‐renowned festivals like EDC, Tomorrowland and Global Gathering and clubs like Avalon, Ruby Skye, Ministry of Sound and more. By garnering support from a broad array of the world’s top jocks like Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, David Guetta, Avicii, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and Sander van Doorn, he’s solidified his position at the forefront of all-­‐star dance producers.

His rise in DJ Mag’s Top 100 underlines this trend; in 2014 Ozcan gets awarded for Biggest Climber, moving up 68 places, now positioned at 31. Besides this, Ozcan is also known for his softsynth and soundbank design for well-­‐established music software houses like Rob Papen (Albino, Predator) and Access Music (Virus). Talk about being innovative, it all comes together in Ummet Ozcan’s resumes –stay tuned for more pioneering stuff soon!
