Oliver Heldens lets slip that Swedish House Mafia’s returning for world tour in 2019Swedish House Mafia 2013 Billboard 1548

Rumors of Swedish House Mafia‘s reunion in 2019 have been swirling since the trio’s performance at Ultra this spring. From Steve Angello’s announcement to a billboard advertisement, the legendary group has set the dance music world abuzz with excitement for a possible world tour next year.

Next to further the speculation is Dutch powerhouse Oliver Heldens, who let slip a confirmation of the group’s reunion and world tour while introducing a classic track in his Heldeep radio show.

“So, Swedish House Mafia have now officially reformed, and are announcing a World Tour in 2019,” he says during the show. “This week’s Heldeep classic was made in 2007 by two thirds of Swedish House Mafia. This is Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso with ‘Together.’”

The trio haven’t officially announced the world tour themselves yet, but the continued rumors and sources are keeping fans waiting with bated breath.

Remember Sidney Samson’s ‘Riverside?’ Oliver Heldens is here to remind you

Remember Sidney Samson’s ‘Riverside?’ Oliver Heldens is here to remind youRiverside 2099 Oliver Heldens Sidney Samson

Sidney Samson is a hardly recognizable name in today’s EDM-sphere; however, in 2009 this Dutch producer had taken the rave world by storm with his raucous single “Riverside” and its puzzling accompanying video. Those living through this single’s time at the top of charts will likely never forget its signature “Riverside, motherf***er” chant that leads into wacky drop filled with infectious, quirky synth melodies and lush percussion.

Thanks to future house pioneer and Heldeep Records owner Oliver Heldens, Samson and “Riverside” have returned to visibility. Heldens joined forces with the original creator to remake the single into a more modern, “Riverside 2099.” The re-work takes the original’s quirky flair, and underlines it with hearty kicks and funk-inspired electro riffs that make for a satisfying harmonization. Indeed, it certainly feels like it was made in this year; though, we’ll always have a soft spot for the original.

 

Oliver Heldens And Sidney Samson Rework One Of EDM’s Biggest Hits Of All Time – ‘Riverside 2099’

I will never forget the first time I heard Sidney Samson’s classic hit ‘Riverside’. It was way back in high school, circa 2009. I was riding around in my friend’s car, which was packed with far too many kids. We were all heavily into electronic music at the time and were listening to Electric Area

Oliver Heldens delivers a deep house remix of Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa’s ‘One Kiss’

This post was originally published on this site

Calvin Harris dropped three remixes of his most recent Billboard success “One Kiss,” with Dua Lipa. Oliver Heldens, ZHU, and Jauz each had the pleasure of remixing the Scotsman’s production.

Heldens gives the original his signature deep house, murky melodies. The distorted bass creates a stark contrast between Lipa’s optimistic, top-end pop vocals and the body-trembling, low-ends of the hook. With a bed of organ synths, Lipa’s voice produces that giddy anticipation of attraction while the drop pulls the rug out from under the listener, falling deep in love on the dance floor.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 39

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Just a month after the release of “Satisfied” on his Science EP, Robotaki has tapped the talents of Machinedrum for a dynamic remix. “When my team and I were thinking of artists to hit up for remixes, we wanted to have a collection of remixes that would truly change the way the original tracks felt and sounded,” Robotaki says of the remix. “Travis’ creative, eclectic and hard-hitting take on ‘Satisfied’ is everything I could’ve hoped for.”


It makes my heart happy that people are still remixing Oliver Heldens and Becky Hill‘s beloved “Gecko (Overdrive).” It’s been nearly five years since its release, and it remains one of my favorites. The song been reworked into a drum & bass masterpiece (thank you, Matrix & Futurebound), spun into a progressive gem (thank you, Lost Kings), and now has been funk-ified into nu disco by Flamingos. With a laid-back, synth-filled vibe, Flamingos revamp this classic with a retro feel.


With each new Rocket League collaborative album, Monstercat continues to impress. Volume three features the latest from Bad Computer: a tantalizing house track with vocals from Skyelle. “Silhouette” marks the producer’s third release with the Canadian label. With captivating instrumentals and beautifully emotive vocals from Skyelle, this one is an alluring addition to Bad Computer’s arsenal of well-crafted tunes.


Bass music plunges to the depths of hell in WAVEDASH and QUEST‘s new track, “Devil Music.” Sprinkled with eerie vocals from fknsyd, this creepy collaboration is crammed with aggressive bass and compelling sound design.  The in-your-face atmosphere of “Devil Music” is invigorating and menacing, making it a breath of fresh air in the saturated bass music market.


There are few things I love more than a drum & bass song that’s equal parts passion-packed and energetic. Flite and Boxplot’s latest, “Sunroad,” is part of Liquicity‘s Galaxy of Dreams 3 compilation, which came out at the end of April. It’s a clear standout on the LP, bursting with life and gorgeous melodies.
