PROGRAM PROFILE

Performing and recording under the name R3hab, EDM artist Fadil El Ghoul started his career in 2008 producing the track “Mrkrstft” for Hardwell. He teamed up with Hardwell once again in 2009 on the single “Blue Magic,” and worked with Afrojack in 2011 on “Aces High (Prutata).” Later that year, and during 2012, he was commissioned to remix artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Katy Perry, and more. By this point he had accumulated a large discography, releasing material on many labels including Afrojack’s Wall Recordings and the German label Tiger Records, but it was with Spinnin’ Records that he developed the closest relationship. This eventually led to “Revolution,” a 2013 collaboration with Nervo and Ummet Ozcan on the label that reached the Top 40 of the U.K. singles chart.
