Oliver Heldens previews tropical-inspired remix of Sia’s ‘Chandelier’
One cannot hold a conversation about the next-generation of dance music superstars without bringing Oliver Heldens‘ name to the table. The Dutch future house upstart has effectively found his niche in a saturated and ever-growing market, inspiring a distinct sound he has undeniably mastered.
Earlier today, Heldens posted a makeshift video preview of his upcoming remix of Australian pop singer Sia’s recent hit, “Chandelier”. This rendition steers away from the producer’s own signature future house stylings and boasts a pleasant, chilled-out tropical vibe that has steadily gained momentum as one of this year’s most popular EDM trends. Within the post’s description, Heldens mentions that this particular remix was “a bit inspired by Kygo and Flume,” which becomes clear between his variation of the now-famous Kygo pluck and the snippet’s overall warm sound. Seeing one of dance music’s brightest take chances and explore other genre territories is certainly a promising sight, even if this particular direction does not fit your preference.
