We’ve made our feelings pretty well known to the blogosphere about Oliver Helden’s original “Koala” track that dropped a few months ago. To say we didn’t like it would be putting it nicely. Premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show last night, Oliver offers up the vocal version titled “Last All Night” with KStewart via FFRR. KStewart’s vocal contribution is notable, adding some much needed depth and variation to the track. I still think the drop is suspiciously similar to “Gecko” and I’m not going to back down from that criticism. Many of our counterparts in the blog world agree. Oliver may sound like Charlie Brown’s teacher, but he makes damn good tunes and you have to respect him for the shift in the “EDM” space he’s creating. Here’s to hoping Oliver finds a new synth to incorporate into his future house sound. If you’re into this, be sure to pick up the pre-order available below.

Progressive House | Anakyn – Point Blank (Nicky Romero Revisit)

Posted by on November 20, 2012

Coming off of his like massive collab with Nervo, “Like Home“, Nicky Romero gives us a slight retouch of “Point Blank” from Anakyn, which has received support from the might Pete Tong as it serves as a launch point for the restart of his FFRR label. Nicky Romero keeps much of the melodic structure, but just as any skilled producer with a fine tuned ear does, he finds the places that can be improved and adding an extra dimension in the low end to give the track the edge it needed.
