Chicago native, Rain Man, strikes again as he delivers yet another jaw-dropping crossover tune, the haunting future trap ballad entitled, "Habit" (released Friday, October 7th , 2016 on Dim Mak Records). According to a recent press release, Rain Man chopped the vocals of Krysta Youngs to deadly effect. Youngs, a Berklee College of Music graduate, whose eclectic alternative pop sound is on full display in "Habit", developed her craft through songwriter rounds in Nashville, Tennessee before working with The Writing Camp’s acclaimed founder David Quinones. Her unique sound has been featured in MTV’s The Real World, ESPN, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Additionally, she has worked with some of pop music’s biggest stars, including Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo, and Rihanna. Combined with Rain Man’s impeccable production, Krysta Youngs’ vocals radiate through on this bona fide future classic. Listen to "Habit" by Rain Man and Krysta Youngs on SoundCloud here.
“Habit” is just the latest vocal-driven crossover hit for the versatile Rain Man. During his time as a member of international sensation Krewella, Rain Man produced the group’s first Top 40 hit “Alive,” which peaked at #9 on Billboard’s Pop Songs Chart and propelled their debut studio album Get Wet directly to #1 on the Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. His 2016 single “Bring Back the Summer (feat. Oly)” (released in March) catapulted to #5 on Spotify’s Viral 50 Chart (both US and Global) and the original plus remixes went on to amass over 20 million combined streams on Spotify. At radio, the single garnered over 1,000 plays on Sirius XM’s “BPM” channel and was supported at major Top 40 stations like KIIS FM in Los Angeles and KMVQ in San Francisco. “Bring Back the Summer (feat. Oly)” officially hit #1 on the Mediabase Dance Chart in August (knocking out Calvin Harris’ “This is What You Came For (feat. Rihanna)” in the process), and Rain Man celebrated by debuting the official music video here.
Building on his buzzing momentum, Rain Man released a string of notable official remixes including The Chainsmokers “Inside Out (feat. Charlee),” Watch The Duck’s “Beautiful, Broken, & Wasted (feat. Steve Aoki),” and Yellow Claw’s “Sin City.” In addition to his busy release schedule, Rain Man also joined the Dim Mak 20th Anniversary celebration with performances in Miami, Chicago, and back-to-back Labor Day Weekend sets at New York’s Electric Zoo and Las Vegas’s Wet Republic.
