Few DJ-producers can touch the success that R3hab has garnered over the course of his young career. His rapid rise through the ranks of the electronic music world has been almost unsurpassed. Voted “Best Break-Through Artist” at the 2012 IDMAs, R3hab’s brand of ‘Chainsaw Madness’ has created such a stir, he has gained the accolades of such time-honored acts as Tiësto, Afrojack and Calvin Harris (to name a few) and rapidly become one of the most in-demand artists for high profile remixes while touring sold out shows at some of the most coveted venues throughout the US, Asia, Europe and Australia. A tour DJ however, is merely half of R3hab’s supremacy. His credits cross the gamut from his main-stage masterpiece with Afrojack, ‘Prutataaa’, to writing and production collaborations with Havana Brown, Enrique Iglesias, David Guetta and Usher and re-working credits for Lady Gaga, Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, No Doubt, Pitbull and Madonna. Come with your questions and gain invaluable insight into the artistry and production prowess of one of the industry's most sought after rising talents.
