Oliver Heldens‘ remix of the basic observe “Le Freak” is one more testomony to his dominating model. “Le Freak” was initially launched by Nile Rodgers in 1978 on the peak of disco. The observe’s familiarity and iconic place within the sphere of music makes it a tough beast to straddle, however Helden does simply that.
Heldens doesn’t divert from the guts of the observe. Instead, he provides it a shock from the AED that’s his producing. The bass of Bernard Edwards, the guitar of Rodgers, the basic hook of “Ah, freak out/ Le freak, c’est stylish,” and even the basic violin all stay. What Heldens provides is one thing new to freak out about. His deep bass synths and rearrangement are completely are sewn by this observe. Heldens delicately provides simply sufficient to revitalize “Le Freak,” and in doing so, he respectfully pays tribute whereas making it his personal.
Such a fragile but distinctive contact is a key attribute to nice producers. It can be fascinating to know what Rodgers must say about this reboot, as Rodgers has caught with the instances and is rumored to have labored on a number of unreleased tracks with Avicii.
