Dutch–Moroccan Multi-Platinum DJ R3HAB and Italian Producer Gabry Ponte Bring Us New Massive Track “The Portrait“
The new track opening with an ominous bassline and singsong vocals, the track uses descriptive lyrics and complementing topline along with instrumental elements to describe its subject. The “Oh la la la” of the course continues the lullaby-esque quality, while the contrasting bassline becomes deeper and bouncier, layering in instrumental melodies for an additional point of interest. This unique track is the first time R3HAB and Gabry have teamed up; read on to hear from both artists about the making of “The Portrait“
R3HAB says: “Gabry has always been a leader in the dance space, and it’s been a pleasure creating ‘The Portrait‘ with him. This song took a while to get just right, but it was worth the time it took us to capture the confidence, mystery, and swagger of the song’s subject. I hope you see a bit of yourself in this audio “portrait” we painted. I can’t wait to play this at my upcoming festivals.”
and Gabry Ponte adds: “When I first heard the idea of the song I fell in love with it, and I thought it would be the perfect match for me and R3HAB to collaborate. Working with him on the production was very challenging and inspiring. He has such a great vision!”
