Fadil El Ghoul (born in 's-Hertogenbosch, 2 April 1986), better known by his stage name R3hab (pronounced "rehab"), is a Dutch DJ and record producer of Moroccan origin.[2] Alongside Afrojack and Chuckie, R3hab is one of the proponents of the modern Dutch house subgenre, although his style and sound at the time were usually darker, somewhat reminiscent of early psytrance or gabber compositions. During the 2012 WMC in Miami, United States, R3hab won the IDMA Best Breakthrough Artist Award.[3]

Musical career[edit]

R3hab began his career in late 2007 while producing the track "Mrkrstft" with Hardwell. One of the main influences R3hab has listed is the duo Infected Mushroom, whose music has been on the international scene since 1999.

His most notable releases to date are "Pump The Party" produced together with Ferruccio Salvo, "The Bottle Song", released on Wall Recordings and "Prutataaa", which was R3hab’s first collaboration with Afrojack.[citation needed]

R3hab was signed by internationally-known DJ and record producer, Afrojack, to his Wall Recordings imprint and is quoted as being one of its biggest talents.

In 2012, R3hab started his own weekly radioshow on SiriusXM, titled I NEED R3HAB.

R3hab is managed by Three Six Zero Group.
