If you’re an EDM lover, you’re likely to have heard his mixes. Remix­ing for the likes of Calvin Har­ris, David Guetta, Ri­hanna, Lady Gaga, Madonna and LMFAO among oth­ers, Dutch DJ R3hab (real name: Fadil El Ghoul; right) has per­formed at night­clubs across the world, and expects only one thing from his au­di­ence — en­ergy!

“I’m the type of guy who in­ter­acts with the crowd. For me, per­form­ing is not only play­ing amaz­ing mu­sic, but about the whole ex­pe­ri­ence. It’s my work­out ba­si­cally,” says the record pro­ducer, who will per­form in Gur­gaon on Novem­ber 15 as part of Sun­burn City Fes­ti­val. “Peo­ple in In­dia are very warm and wel­com­ing,” adds R3hab, who has per­formed in In­dia ear­lier as well.

Talk­ing about his mu­sic, the man be­hind hit tracks such as Pump The Party and Revo­lu­tion says that his beats draw in­spi­ra­tion from his Ara­bic back­ground. “My par­ents are from Morocco... We call it (my kind of mu­sic) Chain­saw Mad­ness. Now, why is it called that? You bet­ter lis­ten to my mu­sic and let it speak for it­self,” says R3hab, whose favourite in the mu­sic in­dus­try is Dutch DJ Afro­jack. “Afro­jack has been a men­tor to me. Also since we started the chain­saw mad­ness,” says the 29-year-old artist.

What’s his take on the EDM scene in In­dia? “It has evolved a lot. We’ll see if there is an op­por­tu­nity for col­lab­o­ra­tions with In­dian artists on this tour,” says R3hab.

For me, per­form­ing is not only play­ing amaz­ing mu­sic, but about the whole ex­pe­ri­ence
