Now that 2014 and its flood of Yearmixes have come to a close, it’s time for artists to give their fans something special to start off 2015. Today, future house maven Oliver Heldens has followed suit by giving his fans a free but limited time download of his Return of the Mack remix.
If you have been to an Oliver Heldens show in recent months you undoubtedly have heard this smooth track. It starts off with sultry vocals and groovy first drop before moving into a vocal-heavy bridge that builds back to the infectious drop. Interestingly, many on the internet have pointed out that the instrumental for this track sounds almost identical to the one used in his remix of Disclosure’s ‘Latch’. In fact, a tracklist from Oliver’s Something Wicked set identified the track as a mixture of the Latch Remix instrumental and the Return of the Mack acapella. A quick search of Beatport shows that the Latch remix was never officially released as a single, so perhaps the instrumental was adjusted for release with a different acapella. An official explanation behind the similarities has not been given but nevertheless, Oliver Heldens surely breathes some fresh futuristic air into this 90s classic. According to Oliver, this track will soon see release on Spinnin’ Records so the free download only lasts until 1/8/15. Check out the similarities between the two tracks and get your free download while you still can.
