The DJ icon joins forces with the young protégé Hypaton to craft a Future Rave classic
David Guetta’s cutting-edge Future Rave sound returns on his new remix of La Bouche’s ‘90s classic ‘Be My Lover (2023 Mix)’ in collaboration with up-and-coming producer Hypaton, out on 21st April.
Guetta is fresh off of a legendary run, including new smash hit ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’, featuring pop megastars Anne-Marie and Coi Leray, and streaming monster ‘I’m Good (Blue)’, which hit #1 on the UK Singles chart as well as in 15 other territories including Australia, Denmark, Switzerland, Norway and Finland.
‘Be My Lover (2023 Mix)’ sees the French mastermind sharing remix duties with young viral sensation Hypaton, revamping La Bouche’s 1995 original with the dark yet electrifying blend of techno and progressive house that is David Guetta’s own Future Rave sound. Since being coined by Guetta and his partner-in-crime Morten Breum, Future Rave’s futuristic mix of underground sounds with festival-sized energy has become a genre unto itself, as proved by the pair’s huge 2022 ‘Future Rave’ tour, which included a Hï Ibiza residency and an appearance at EDC, as well as November’s acclaimed Future Rave EP Episode 2.
Young production phenomenon Hypaton has picked up the Future Rave mantle, going viral with his ingenious revamps of ‘90s classics. Though he’s been producing EDM and trance since 2014, it was in 2022 that Hypaton became an Instagram reel sensation with his clever reworks, earning the attention of the mastermind behind the genre, David Guetta. His music continues to go viral, amassing over 50 million views and counting and being shared over 100,000 times by accounts for the world’s biggest football teams, news agencies, celebrities and everything in between. Armed with a plethora of new, original, cutting-edge music for 2023, Hypaton’s rise to stardom looks certain to be nothing short of meteoric.
