Wyclef Jean and R3HAB get a Middle East Shakedown

One of the leading Middle East EDM DJs and producer, Mark Shakedown has started 2019 in style by hitting over 1 million streams with his official remix for R3HAB and Sophia Carson’s new track ‘Rumors.’ And the talented Middle East DJ has now been commissioned to take on Wyclef Jean’s new single ‘Mystery.’

Mark Shakedown has been a leading light in the Middle East dance scene for over a decade. A popular DJ who’s shared the decks with Steve Angello, Dash Berlin and Marco V; he’s been a constant presence on the Beirut club and radio scene and is now the artist and label marketing manager at Anghami, the leading music streaming service in the Middle East. Clued-up Middle East clubbers will instantly know the name Shakedown from his long-running Saturday night dance music show on Radio One which showcases the best in EDM and dance music.

He’s brought all that experience to bear with his blistering remix of ‘Rumors,’ a melodic, soaring, summertime smash full of clever builds, and punchy percussion which cleverly uses Sophia Carson’s drop-dead-gorgeous vocals. The track was released as part of a remix package on January 4 and has already picked up some huge support and easily went past the million streams just a few months after release. R3HAB is ever-present in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll since 2012, peaking at 12th in 2018, reinforcing his position as one of the world’s biggest DJs. And that success has led to Mark remixing ‘Mystery’ by K-391 and Wyclef Jean, creating a tropical house rework that’s set to dominate beach parties and radio shows across the region, further cementing Mark’s reputation as one of the biggest names in the Middle East and a real player on the global scene.

The Mark Shakedown remix of ‘Mystery’ by Wyclef Jean is out now.
