19-year-0ld Oliver Heldens’s spin on Tiesto’s “Light Years Away” featuring British electronic group DBX, successfully takes the saccharine prog-house original far into the future. By laying a deliciously catchy piano melody underneath DBX’s lyrics, the Dutch future house prodigy keeps the essence of the original, off of Tiesto’s latest album A Town Called Paradise
, intact while propelling the track forward into deeper territory. The best part of Oliver’s remix is its versatility: it’s upbeat, nuanced and groovy enough to take you from the pregame to the afterparty. Of course, it was Tiesto who discovered Heldens and his track “Gecko” just last year and signed him to his label, Musical Freedom, so it’s cool to hear a product of the veteran producer and his breakout discovery. Check out the Oliver Heldens remix of “Light Years Away” below before it’s official release on November 30th.
