"Turn Me On" featuring Vula is by no means the first time Oliver Heldens has paid homage to a classic, but this one hits different than the others. The Dutch DJ/producer sampled "Don't Go" by Yazoo in his anthemic Riton collaboration, resulting in an infectious nightclub heater.

Make no mistake about it, though - "Turn Me On" stands on its own merit. By the time the iconic synth lead from the 1982 classic creeps its way into the arrangement, it's but one element of an entirely different concept. For her part, Vula delivers an anthemic vocal that gives a song the sort of appeal that extends beyond the dance floor.

After garnering worldwide renown as the poster boy of future house a few years into the EDM boom, Heldens came to favor more classic sounds. In 2019 alone, he's sampled artists like Carmen for "This Groove" and collaborated with Nile Rogers on "Summer Love."
