Since meeting after an impromptu back-to-back set some seven years ago, “Asia’s biggest DJ duo” Rave Republic have gone on to sign with Warner Music, rack up approximately two million streams on Spotify, score two No. 1 hits on iTunes, a No. 1 album, and play on the main stages of festivals like Ultra Singapore and EDC China, while rocking countless Top 100 Clubs alongside giants like Afrojack, DJ Snake, Skrillex, Marshmello, Nicky Romero, Alesso and more. And this year, Mathias Schell and Stas Madorski worked hard to take things even bigger in 2019.
“We’ve been touring a lot around Asia and recently did some shows in USA and Europe,” they say. “We’ve finished off a number of tracks, including a dance/pop hit with Luciana and Warner Music due for release very soon!”
They say they’ve also been working on some new EDM bombs that they’ve been roadtesting at shows. “They’re ready to take to labels — some we are still looking for the right vocalist.” We can’t wait.
