Don Diablo is ‘On My Mind’
Don Diablo is unstoppable these days. After breaking some barriers with the launch of his HEXAGON imprint, releasing a couple of irresistible tracks this year, he now returns to Spinnin’s main label to drop a true festival anthem: ‘On My Mind’.
It’s not as if he’s come out of nowhere with this incredible tune. Earlier 2015 releases already seemed to build up to this record, getting better and more widely supported with every track. Remember his remix of Alex Adair’s ‘Make Me Feel Better’ in March, kicking off his HEXAGON label, which stayed on #1 of Beatport’s main chart for eleven days (!) and currently counts over 3,4 million SoundCloud plays?
Then there was his edit of King Arthur’s ‘Belong To The Rhythm’, which topped the house charts at Beatport once again, followed by a big remix of The Wombats’ ‘Give Me A Try’, played by loads of main artists (including Tiesto, Kaskade, Knife Party, Martin Solveig and Oliver Heldens). Recently, the Don expanded his sound with ‘Universe’, released on Spinnin’ Deep, shooting to Beatport’s Main Top 10 as if it’s nothing.
‘On My Mind’
Looking at the success of these precursors and the buzz his new single ‘On My Mind’ (out today on Spinnin’ Records) has caused these last weeks, it’s almost certain here’s a track that going for festival grandeur. First, the music is as temptive as you can get it; blending Don’s hooks and grooves with mesmerizing horns and sweet piano chords. Add to this some soulful vocals (taken from 1984 record ’Saturday Love’ by Cherelle And Alexander O’Neal) and we’ve got a big, no, huge record on our hands.
Support comes from all corners; DJs like Avicii, Martin Garrix, Hardwell and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike playing the track in their radio shows, guys like Oliver Heldens, Diplo, A-Trak, Laidback Luke, W&W and Showtek supporting it to bits.
And there’s more good news: the track is out today and comes with a truly cool video. Shot during one year in over 46 countries, we see Don Diablo travel the globe, meeting fellow DJs like Oliver Heldens, Sander van Doorn, Martin Garrix, Steve Angello and Martin Solveig and, above all, raise some serious roofs at festivals worldwide. For sure, the Don is going places, just as ‘On My Mind’ is destined t
