Billboard Radio China Partners With R3HAB To Launch ‘I Need R3HAB’ In China: Interview
Billboard Radio China and Dutch DJ and producer R3HAB are partnering to launch the radio show in China ‘I Need R3HAB’ . The new show will air weekly on Billboard Radio China's official website and app from now on. R3HAB is now the fifth International DJ producer, joining Afrojack, Ferry Corsten, Eva Shaw and Hardwell to work with Billboard Radio China, in a pioneering platform to promote EDM in the Greater China region.
Recently R3hab sat down with Billboard Radio China at Creamfields Hong Kong backstage to talk about his radio show, ongoing music productions and his plans for 2018.
“Every week I'm trying to search the best new music which is always interesting,” he said. “It’s tough to fill 60 minutes of stuff you like but every week we get the job done.” Through this show, he really wants to keep people updated on the newest music.
R3hab never stops learning. He wants to try a little bit of everything. He enjoys exploring different music styles and is eager to invite people on various journeys through his tracks. His fans can look forward to new album in 2018. “I already worked on it in January,” he said. “If the feeling is right, I’m going to start on it right away.”
Putting the final touches on a couple of new songs, he dropped his remix single this month with tropical-tinged remix of Lauv's synthy hit "Getting Over You.” He hopes his new songs will play during the European summer festival season. “I want everyone to have a lot of new music to look forward to,” he said. Even with everything going on, he always stays busy. “Staying busy is important for me,” he explained. “If I'm not busy, I'm bored.”
To engage more Chinese fans, R3HAB created a Weibo account (https://www.weibo.com/R3HAB) and even gave himself a Chinese name 三哥. He’s currently working on his Chinese skills by practicing on apps and social media. “It's a little tough,” he commented. “I mean it's kind of like if you were trying to pick up Arabic or so. I know it's a difficult language but you know we'll get it done one day hopefully.”
