Rising talent REK makes his debut on Gemstone Records with his brand new track ‘The Weekend’ featuring vocals from Viex. Known for his multi-genre productions ranging from Big Room to Future Bass, the Columbian producer/DJ now switches his style once again by composing a pop-leaning track influenced by his Latin American roots.
‘The Weekend’ begins with an energetic breakdown which accentuates beautiful vocal harmonies and tonal plucks. The track seamlessly transitions to rhythmic percussion hits and pulsating shakers before leading to a drop driven by a vocal-chop melody reinforced by violins and pumping sub-bass. Strummed acoustic guitars initiate the second breakdown while ethereal voice effects subtly play in the background. REK later re-introduces the infectiously catchy pre-chorus and memorable rhythmic drop.
Hailing from Santiago de Cali, Columbia, REK has already been making big moves in the dance industry. He was recently nominated to the CDA (Colombia Dance Awards) for Best Academy DJ, and was also featured in DJ Mag Latin America for his previous track ‘Kingston.’ REK has had previous releases on labels such as Sirup and Red Lizard Records.
