Rewerk Wednesday/R3hab

Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, (“Work!!”), Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris, Halsey, Dan + Shay, Lady Gaga. 

Those are just a few of the many names that EDM producer DJ Fadil El Ghoul–otherwise by his stage and world tour dominating name, R3hab--whose original tracks mixed, mashed and serve our feet with all to move on the dance floor of life….

……and this Saturday, he’s about to do all of that and so much more when he takes over Haven Nightclub in Atlantic City in the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino. 

Jumpstarting his career in 2008 producing the tracks, “Mrkrstft” and “Blue Magic” alongside fellow DJ Hardwell, R3hab would eventually link up with Afrojack in 2011 on “Aces High (Prutata), and it was pretty much thanks to that trio of monster club hits that he would come to werk with all of those names listed above.

And when it comes to his slay alongside Aussie DJ Diva Havana Brown on the ever-so-classic, “Big Banana?” Fucking priceless. 

Over the years, R3hab certainly been a master of his own material releasing several records on Afrojack’s Wall Recordings label, but it was his later partnership with Spinnin’ Records that would not just lead him to his own weekly radio show on SiriusXM, but also a handful of International Dance Music Awards that led R3hab even greater stateside notoriety. 

These days, El Ghoul continues to be a dominating force on the festival circuit (hey there, Coachella) and will no doubt continue to own our fist pumpin’ lives forever. For much more with this globally dominating DJ, you must dive into his latest record, The Wave, right here and his 2017 set, Trouble, here, as well as on this playlist of rewerks below. 

And going to witness him take over Atlantic City this weekend wouldn’t hurt either, if it does, you know it would only be the good kind of pain brought on by the one-and-only, R3hab

For much more local entertainments goings on this year and beyond, be sure to hit the floor like J,Lo with Philly Mixtape right here and here
