2021 is turning out to be a big year for R3HAB as he continues to drop massive tunes one after the other. His most recent releases, ‘Fendi,’ and ‘Ringtone’ have already become fan favorites, with the latter receiving over a million hits on YouTube. He is not going to slow down anytime soon though as the Dutch DJ/producer has dropped yet another anthem entitled, ‘Distant Memory.’ This tune is huge and we wouldn’t be lying if we say that it struck us pretty hard. After all, the song also features EDM superstars Timmy Trumpet and W&W. How can we we not feel the combined energy that they unleashed on this track? R3HAB x Timmy Trumpet x W&W – Distant Memory has EDM festival written all over it. With this song, the future of Big Room EDM looks bright for 2021. To make this EDM collab even more memorable, the trio has put out a nostalgic Distant Memory music video. This is what R3HAB has to say about the song:
“Making music for a living is a special feeling, and to do it with friends is a next-level high. I’m excited to work with Timmy Trumpet on our second collaBORATION and have been looking for the right song to create with W&W for a long time. ‘Distant Memory’ is going to be a festival hype builder, but what makes it special is the contrast between the dreamy dazed verses and the drop. Timmy, Willem, and Ward have great energy, which keeps the artistic process fresh and inspired. Hope you love it.“
R3HAB x Timmy Trumpet x W&W – Distant Memory is a perfect song to start the spring season. It’s just unfortunate that the world is still going through a pandemic right now. Otherwise, this tune would have dominated the music festivals around the globe. This EDM collab is that good! The track opens with sweet vocals layered over dreamy pads, bells, and synths, wrapping you around in its warm and lull aura. However, this heavenly feeling doesn’t last for long as the song starts to build towards its first drop, and when the beat hits, you will realize just how powerful this Big Room EDM 2021 song is. This track is just as addictive as ‘Ones You Miss’ and ‘Am I The Only One’ by R3HAB. The Distant Memory music video is equal parts as mesmerizing as the track. This is what Timmy Trumpet said about the song:
“There’s nothing I love more than making music with my friends, and these guys are the best in the business. I’ve collabed with both W&W and R3HAB before but never on the same record and you can hear all 4 of us inside its elements. I can’t wait to drop this on stage with all 4 of us and blow up the dance-floor!“
We have been enthralled by the release of R3HAB x Timmy Trumpet x W&W – Distant Memory. It is structured with lush and catchy melodies that will make you hum along to the song. This EDM collab is a super effort by the trio. The tune truly embodies the Big Room EDM 2021 sound. The Distant Memory music video is also really impactful and will make you miss the pre-COVID life. W&W had this to say about the track:
“It was a real pleasure working with R3HAB and Timmy Trumpet on ‘Distant Memory.’ Both R3HAB and Timmy are really good friends of us which made it very easy going! We also feel it really combines the best of all of us as artists, and we hope you like listening to it as much as we liked working on it!”
This EDM collab is certainly one of the best main stage festival song of 2021 so far. We are loving every second of R3HAB x Timmy Trumpet x W&W – Distant Memory and hope that they work together on another banger soon.
