Tiesto ft. DBX – Light Years Away (Oliver Heldens Remix)
Future house’s youthful spearhead, Oliver Heldens, makes it seem like he has not taken a personal break since his hectic yet monstrous festival season with the amount of content he has been putting out. From a collaboration with Sander van Doorn to another with Mr. Belt & Wezol, it’s no surprise that the Dutch superstar was called upon by fellow countryman, Tiesto, to remix his original, “Light Years Away (ft. DBX).”
Recently, Heldens attracted some heat from haters for his last couple releases as critics deemed his sound monotonous and unoriginal. Well say “adios” to those notions as he takes us to the stars with his melodic transformation of Tiesto’s original. Oliver Heldens tactfully keeps DBX’s vocals a focal point throughout the track amongst a nebulous synth sequence and distinguishable future bassline. The rising producer takes the progressive, uplifting nature of the original and spins it into a funky, deep house jam that can be played in the late night hours or on the main stage.
