Oliver Heldens is back with a bang on new single Ibiza 77 (Can You Feel It), the first of his arsenal of anthems that he’ll drop over the summer. It’s the perfect warm-up for his hectic summer season and his residency on the White Isle that kicks off July 2nd in Hï Ibiza.
A Giorgio Moroder style arpeggiated bassline phases and bubbles away at the centre of the track, with the high-impact percussion playing out rhythms that border techno and tribal. A male vocal teases us with the words “can you feel it?”, pre-empting the main chorus hook that drops in during the blissed-out breakdown. It’s a track that does away with excessive theatrics, with Heldens instead using his immense production skills to hone these few elements to succinct prowess. It’s a chunky, rugged track with a killer vocal that blends euphoria with a pleasingly tough edge.
