R3hab just unleashed absolute madness with his newest tune “Sakura.” Check it out above, read what he had to say about the track below, and stay posted here for updates on a release date.
Here is my brand new record ”Sakura’’. I went to Tokyo on May 5th, 2015 to play Electric Zoo Beach and I felt an energy from the second I got into Tokyo that left me inspired by the people, the culture, the food and the passion that everyone exuded.
I fell in love with the language so much that I wrote a story over the next couple of days while I was in Japan about a legend and then got it translated into Japanese and recorded it. Because of that little story I wrote, I wanted to do something epic and big sounding so after spending a long time on figuring out the melody that I wanted for this, I recorded trumpet players from all over the world to put in the record instead of using a synth. It was important to me to have that authentic feel while still maintaining the energy of a festival record.
I hope you guys like it and thank you for all your support. I have been very inspired in 2016 working on a bunch of different things and I am thrilled that the internet exists as an open forum to explain my thoughts on a record and in turn get to share the music and a story with all of you.
