Jesse Van De Ketterij and Rachid El Uarichi are the two young producers behind the alias Pep & Rash. Hailing from the South Netherlands, the pair are imminently about to release their debut track “Da Fck You Lookin’ At!” on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Smash The House imprint.
Opening with a heavy beat and deep electro bass line, “Da Fck You Lookin’ At!” progresses naturally to the build-up. A funky stabbing keyboard pattern is introduced, the beat dips out and a vocal chant appears, quickly adding to the energy. The track drops with a dominating subby electronic bass, giving “Da Fck You Lookin’ At” a full on mainstage feel, a sound that’s quickly becoming a trademark technique of the duo.
Pep & Rash’s hit track “Rumours” catapulted the pair into the scene back in 2014 giving them worldwide recognition. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength playing a host of shows and festivals around the world. With 57 million track streams on Spotify and support from the likes of Avicii, Calvin Harris and Tiësto, this progressive house duo is set for big things. It won’t be long before you’re blown away by the imaginative sound of Pep & Rash.
