R3HAB (original name Fadil El Ghoul) gave his remix touch to Steve Aoki's collaboration with Maluma, "Maldad." 

The "Maldad" remix is something of a friendly reciprocation for Aoki recently remixing El Ghoul's own single "Flames," featuring Zayn. In his classic fashion, El Ghoul gives another kick of energy to the original raggaeton track, lighting it with an upbeat, tropical tempo.

Though remixes are a well established market for El Ghoul, this revamped "Maldad" is one of his first forays into the trend of dance-Latin collaborations, like Major Lazer's latest release, "Rave de Favela," or Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's "Boomshakalaka." The dominance of Latin artists in the EDM scene is nothing new, as Major Lazer carved out that niche years ago.
