Deep house DJ and producer Regard burst onto the worldwide dance scene with the release of his viral remix of Jay Sean's 2008 hit "Ride It." The Kosovo-born Regard originally made a name for himself in the Balkans as a DJ and producer within the electronic dance scene before moving into the vocal deep house scene around 2016. Regard quickly made a name for himself with his online mixes, DJ appearances, and the release of his own tracks, including the singles "Dream," "Sun Goes Down," and "You're Mine." Although his reworking of Jay Sean's "Ride It" had been floating around since 2017, the track suddenly blew up after gaining exposure online, eventually going viral. Snapped up by Ministry of Sound, the label officially released it in July 2019 and it topped the charts in Mexico, the U.K., and Europe. Remixes followed by the likes of Jonas Blue and Franky Wah before Regard rounded out 2019 performing the track live with Jay Sean at London's O2. ~ Rich Wilson
