In the intro of “Colors,” they pair steady drums with layered piano and synth melodies to create an uplifting foundation for Sterling Fox’s silky vocals. A thought-provoking bridge soon follows and the song takes a breath just before a swift build. A crescendo with ascending elements then gives way to the melody-driven drop supplemented by vocal accents and a feel-good climactic vibe.

The swiftly emerging producer/DJ, Oliver Heldens, releases his deep house remix of Martin Garrix’s “Animals” via Spinnin’ Records. Following up on his breakthrough single, “Gecko,” Oliver unveils another smash production that rides on the fringe of the underground. His remix of “Animals” brings a high-energy vibe to deep house with heavy grooves held at a big-room tempo. Gaining international attention from top dance music artists, labels, new fans, and tastemaker bloggers, OIiver Heldens is making waves with his fresh sound. Purchase Oliver Heldens’ remix of Martin Garrix’s “Animals” on Beatport.
As a 18-year-old, Oliver Heldens has a long career ahead of him and his recent success is a strong indication of what’s to come. His “Animals” remix departs from Garrix’s progressive house stems making for more of an original track rather than a remix. Oliver has crafted multiple synth riffs and dynamic rhythms ranging from a four-on-the-floor house beat to breakbeat-esque percussion to serve as the foundation for the remix. With those elements, he arranged the track to be exciting throughout its duration keeping live peak-time energy in mind for a massive production unlike typical deep house. Oliver Heldens may be the first artist to bridge the gap between big-room listeners and the underground community.
