RELEASES “SURVIVE” FT. EMELI SANDE & GUCCI MANE
Regarded as one of the creative minds behind the massively exploded Future House movement, it’s evident why Dutch DJ/Producer Don Diablo is seen as a pioneer of the dance music world. Over the last few years, Don’s popularity has been on the rise to an unprecedented level, with his sophomore 2018 album FUTURE hitting No. 9 on the U.S. Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart in February.
This month sees Don Diablo announce his much-anticipated major collaboration and new single “SURVIVE”, featuring hip-hop mogul Gucci Mane, bringing a unique edge to the single, spitting his rhymes on the track, along with award winning power voice and songwriter Emeli Sandé.
Speaking of the collaboration, Don describes the release:
“It’s just one of those records that needed to be absolutely perfect, from start to finish. I wanted to it to stand out and combine three worlds into one. A Dutch music producer, an incredible British singer songwriter, and one of the biggest US rappers of today – not your everyday combo. All three of us did something different from what we normally do but at the same time we were all able to add our own trademark signature to the song. I am more than proud of the final outcome and hope the music and the message of the song will motivate people to dream big and see beyond the clouds of their personal challenges.” Don Diablo
Emeli Sandé speaks just as enthusiastically about the collaboration:
“I’m So Happy to be collaborating with the very talented Don Diablo. I love his unique creativity and his deep passion for music. It was a real pleasure to write and lay down the vocal on this powerful track. I really hope this song will empower people to find pride and confidence in their own story of survival.” Emeli Sandé
Recognized by Billboard as “one of the definite greats of his generation,” Don Diablo has popularized dance and house music in the United States, joining the rankings of Zedd, The Chainsmokers and David Guetta. From remixing Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Coldplay – and just last month Martin Garrix x Khalid along with Diplo x MØ – Don has earned praise from talent and tastemakers across the globe for his unique and distinctive production – which is demonstrated through his domination at festivals such as Tomorrowland and Lollapalooza. With hits such as ‘On My Mind’, ‘Universe’, ‘Anytime’, ‘Chemicals’ and ‘Cutting Shapes’, there’s no more perfect time for such a distinctive new record and collaboration.
