Rui – Feel Alright


Rui (born as Rui Manuel Reis Maia) is a self-made DJ and producer who was born in Portugal, but moved to the Netherlands at the age of 2.

Rui has created his own musical signature: mellow beats with warm soundscapes lead up to a chill-out exotic beach vibe. His successful debut single Million Times is a good representation of Rui’s sound & personality, a humble guy.

Now he returns to the label for his latest dance-floor workout, “Feel Alright“. Rui is no stranger to Afrojack’s formidable WALL Recordings label, having released the stunning vocal anthem “Million Times” with Sam Ashworth last year to great acclaim and providing a top remix for Fais & Afrojack’s “Used To Have It All.”

The track is a vocal house track made for those ecstatic feel-good moments. Centering around a rubbery bass-line and hip-shaking beats, it’s powered by a triumphant vocal that recalls classic US house and garage. Breathy atmospheric pads create a subtle mood, while sustained bass notes deck out the breakdowns. Big piano chords top things off to send the track into overdrive, and the quality of the vocal means this one’s going to be as at home on the radio as it is on the dance-floor.

His signing on WALL Recordings has put him in the position of being able to do a lot of production and composing work for the music company. As a true silent force he is working on a great deal of releases on WALL Recordings.
