Oliver Heldens Made a Call of Duty Warzone Anthem

Oliver Heldens and Spinnin’ Records squad up with Call of Duty to launch Call of Duty®: Warzone Season 04 Anthem ‘Sound Of Vondel’. In fact, the DJ and producer worked with Activision, one of the biggest gaming publishers in the world, to celebrate the exciting new season of Call Of Duty: Warzone with an all-new dance track. Operators dropping into Call of Duty: Warzone Season 04’s new medium-sized map, Vondel, can listen to the track directly in-game.

Moreover, Heldens drew inspiration from his techno-oriented alter ego HI-LO. ‘Sound Of Vondel’ is a darkly propulsive and atmospheric journey that perfectly evokes the epic next-level gameplay that fans worldwide have come to expect from Call of Duty. A longtime fan and player himself, Heldens cleverly incorporates elements from the game itself, including the voice of Modern Warfare’s Captain Price, one of the game’s most loved characters. Here is what the man had to say about the collaboration :

“I’ve been playing Call of Duty for as long as I can remember. I even named a bunch of my first officially released tracks in 2013 based upon inspiration from the iconic Modern Warfare 2 game. To collaborate with the Activision team and to create some truly authentic music as the official anthem for the new Vondel map in Warzone is a massive honor to me!”

Obviously, the track takes the listener into the sonic world of Vondel, a historic district within a greater metropolis built on an extensive river network. The waterfront district of a Baroque European city where centuries of old-world history blend with modern architectural developments.

“Collaborating with Oliver Heldens has been an extremely exciting project for us”, commented Michelle Bresaw, VP and Head of Live Services at Activision. “The marrying of a global DJ and the Call of Duty franchise acts as a celebration of what’s possible when the games and music industries collide.”
