Katy Perry – Chained To The Rhythm (Oliver Heldens remix)
Future house master Oliver Heldens is a busy man. Spending much of his time managing the flourishing Heldeep Recordings and working his HI-LO alter-ego, the skilled producer hasn’t been pumping out music under his primary project with the same frequency as he once did.
Despite his evident lack of production time, Heldens’ latest remix of Katy Perry’s “Chained To The Rhythm” proves to listeners that the Dutch DJ is still a deft purveyor of future house. Remixing a Katy Perry single offers producers massive hit potential, which will likely propel Heldens to a higher echelon of popularity.
The song itself features a groovy bass-guitar sampled intro supported by his typical drum machine sounds. The veteran pop star’s vocals are present throughout the single, giving the track an unmistakable party vibe. The amusingly off-kilter beat drop adds character to the track, turning it into a future club anthem.
