Title: Million Places
Label: Rave Culture
Veteran Multi-Platinum producers R3HAB and W&W teamed up to create their production “Million Places,” an uplifting big-room gem with a distinctive atmosphere of the ’90s. While the track opens with sparkling, digitized vocals, the Dutch artists quickly incorporate a strong, driving bassline coupled with a dominant synth to up the ante. Despite the uplifting lyrics that are perfect for sharing with that special someone, the intensive tempo of “Million Places” isn’t for the faint of heart. The formula of undulating bass, expansive synths, and ethereal vocals is reminiscent of the sound that’s experiencing a renaissance right now, paying homage to artists such as Vengaboys, Alice Deejay, Culture Beat, etc. R3HAB and W&W employed their sophisticated production prowess to create something that feels both nostalgic and modern, appealing to both longtime dance music fans and those who are hearing it for the first time. Whether you had a chance to check out R3HAB & W&W‘s back 2 back performances at Tomorrowland Winter in the French Alps back in March and at Tomorrowland‘s iconic Mainstage this summer, you can be sure that you’ll experience “Million Places” this autumn on radio airwaves and dance floors across the globe.
“After months of testing and finessing, Willem, Ward, and I are excited to officially release ‘Million Places.’ It was inspiring to premiere this record at Tomorrowland Winter during our b2b set, and we agreed the record was ready to release after the great response at Tomorrowland Mainstage last month. It’s our fourth and most anticipated collab, and I think our work keeps getting better.” – R3HAB
“Loved working on this one with R3HAB, the vocals instantly hit us, and it’s goosebumps every time we play it.” – W&W
