Oliver Heldens' new single is a sure sign summer is just around the corner. Teaming up with legendary songwriter, producer, and composer Nile Rodgers and Brooklyn rocker Devin, their single "Summer Lover" comes as a groovy future house original.
In late 2018, Heldens remixed Nile Rodgers' "Le Freak," a song Rodgers had written with his band and released in 1978. The original is preserved in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress, which has deemed the track culturally significant for its time. Shortly after Heldens outfitted "Le Freak" with a modern new production, we now also have an original collaboration on our hands between the two artists.
"Summer Lover" features the sounds of Rodgers' unmistakable bright, soulful guitar. On the low end Heldens incorporates a deep, rhythmic bassline formulating a captivating sultry groove.
Lately, Heldens has been on a disco kick. The Dutch producer's previous release "This Groove" channeled similar influences, and we're looking forward to hearing more music from him along this creative frequency.
