Rave Republic, hailing from Singapore, is made up of two members – one from Switzerland and one from Australia. They recently cracked the top 100 on the DJ Mag list and are making waves with their pop-EDM sound. Their tunes have been topping the charts around the region and they’ve even taken the main stage at some pretty big festivals.
Mathias used to work at Procter & Gamble as a brand manager before leaving to pursue his true passion – making music. Stas was an up-and-coming actor who had a part in the major hit movie Ah Boys to Men 3. In 2017, they joined the Active Talent Agency based in the UK.
Mathias and Stas decided to join forces in February 2014 and form Rave Republic. They wanted to bring that “festival vibe” to the nightlife scene and ended up getting gigs all over the region, from Singapore to Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, and Taiwan.
Rave Republic spun the tunes on the main stage at some awesome festivals, like It’s the Ship and Ultra Singapore. Their first single, ‘Far Away,’ came out in December 2015 and was released through Warner Music Singapore – it even hit #1 on the iTunes Dance Chart! The sequel single, ‘Shoot for the Moon’, achieved remarkable success, reaching #3 on the iTunes overall chart and #1 on the dance chart, as well as entering Spotify’s Viral Top 50 playlist. The release of the group’s debut EP, ‘Rule it All’, in September 2016 saw it debut at #2 on the iTunes overall album chart and #1 on the dance chart.
Rave Republic and Syzz dropped ‘Fall Into My Love’ in March 2018 and it made quite the splash! It featured TyteWriter, a 2-time Grammy and platinum nominated songwriter, and took off on the charts. It reached #2 on Spotify Viral Top 5 in Singapore and made it into the Top 50 in 8 countries on iTunes.
