Regarded as one of the founding fathers of the Future House movement, it’s evident why Dutch DJ/Producer Don Diablo is seen as a pioneer of the dance music world.
Marking the 100th release on his HEXAGON imprint, Don Diablo unleashes a powerful club weapon – The Rhythm. Perfectly shaping his future house sound for the clubs, “The Rhythm” is sure to become a festival favourite as we head into the summer season.
“After four years I am proud to reach 100 releases on my HEXAGON label. For the 100th release we wanted to do something special so we decided to release one of my secret DJ weapons as a surprise for the fans. I always want to merge my trademark piano sound with ragga vocals so I could create a big clash between classic and futuristic house Hexagon style sounds to combine old school vibes with forward-thinking sounds. This one has been going down a storm in my sets, so I am happy to finally share it with the world!” – Don Diablo
