Don Diablo has always claimed his place on the electronic dance music scene, and his new single, ‘Bad’ that came out on March 20th proves that he is one of the top EDM maestros. The song is pure bliss to listen to thanks to the soothing vocal contributed by the supremely talented Moroccan-English artist Zak Abel. Diablo has been giving great collaborative singles on a regular basis for some time now. In 2019, he was clocked in at #6 in the Top 100 DJs list by DJ Mag. Zak Abel is himself a talented artist- a great songwriter and musician who is popular for his hits like ‘These Are the Days,’ ‘The Power’ and ‘Love Song.’
Don Diablo described ‘Bad’ as cheeky, being about guilty pleasures that every human can relate to at some point. It is actually a refreshing piece in such critical times when we are in need of some source of joy and wonder. The magical vibes of this song have got listeners hooked. The track is beautifully co-written with Elderbrook, and soaring vocals of Zak Abel makes it mesmerizing.
Musically speaking, it’s a new version of Don Diablo. He has tried experimenting with different styles and chords, some variations that hasn’t been played before by him. This is why ‘Bad’ is set to blow up the charts; Diablo has stretched his sonic abilities to enter a new era of his music life. However, while exploring different sounds he has kept his signature style for listeners, so they can have a feeling of familiarity.
Zak Abel’s voice and Don Diablo’s futuristic, lurid synths in ‘Bad’ makes it a true club and festival anthem. The track is embedded with pulsating beats throughout, which makes it a perfect music to groove to. We hope this amazing duo soon gets a chance to perform the song live together.
