Over six weeks have passed since Dutch heavyweights R3hab & Quintino‘s impressive collaboration ‘Freak‘ was released, and the track still remains a real crowdpleaser in the sets of many major artists, including Tiesto, Oliver Heldens, and The Chainsmokers. Sampling Adina Howard‘s ‘Freak Like Me‘ vocals, the addition of catchy chords, sharp metallic plucks, and a tropical beat has resulted in a track that will work perfectly at both a chilled pool party and packed nightclub dance floor. As with any original hit, we always love to see tracks being taken in a new direction, and R3hab and Quintino have done exactly that by producing an emphatic ‘VIP’ remix.
The pair are no strangers to each other’s music, with Quintino previously on remix duties for R3hab’s track ‘Soundwave‘, whilst they also collaborated back in 2013 to remix Tiesto’s hit ‘Chasing Summers‘. And now they have put their own unique ‘VIP’ touch to their original, turning it from a tropical anthem into a festival floor-filler. With more uptempo vocals, deeper synths, and a heavier drop, this one is sure to cause mayhem on the dance-floor, and exemplifies the style that we have become accustomed to hearing from R3hab and Quintino. R3hab in particular has also been renowned for his epic remixes, having previously turned songs from Rihanna, John Legend and Taylor Swift into smashing house hits. The pair do not disappoint on this occasion, and we can only hope for more collaboration involving these two over the coming months.
Stream the VIP remix in full below, and stay tuned for the full remix package, including remixes from Sam Feldt and Joe Stone, set to be released on April 25th.
