R3hab (born Fadil El Ghoul) brings high energy in his remix of “Treehouse” by English pop singer James Arthur.
No matter the genre, El Ghoul gives all his remixes a melodic, electronic lift. “Treehouse” is no exception. Arthur’s piano-led original carries the message that it’s okay to not be okay, because what happens after is of real importance. El Ghoul retains that hopeful sentiment while instilling it a new life with a carefree, more upbeat drop.
This remix is one of many in El Ghoul’s hot streak this year. Already, the Dutch DJ has delivered over 15 remixes, in addition to a U.S. tour and album drop.
2012 X-Factor winner James Arthur follows a similar successful trajectory. Spotify recently awarded him a disc for reaching 1 billion streams with his global hit, “Say You Won’t Go.” He's one of only 10 artists ever to achieve the milestone.
