Dutch hotshot Oliver Heldens continues to impress, dropping the radiant new single “Oops.” Featuring the ear catching vocals of singer and songwriter Karen Harding, the new release is an exercise in fusing the old with the new, weaving in and out of inspirations from decades past to land on a modern dancefloor hit. Primed for everything from the radio to the club, Oliver Heldens and Karen Harding’s new single is out now via RCA Records and the mighty Ministry of Sound.
The new release sees Oliver Heldens dig deep into his coveted musical arsenal, landing on a sound that is equal parts fresh and nostalgic. A melting pot of tastes, “Oops” is the full sonic package– led by an infectious melody and brought to even greater heights by a kinetic and downright funky bassline.
Accompanying Heldens on the release of “Oops” is none other than Karen Harding, who’s had a steady ascent in her career since her 2014 debut, “Say Something.” The rare vocalist whose talent shines through the often-heavy production of modern club music, Harding has a proven knack of lifting dance beats to radio hits. Now alongside the masterful tastes of Oliver Heldens, the English singer takes her next steps to stardom, flexing her ability to carry a dancefloor delight with her upbeat and colorful vocals.
The new release rides the wave of momentum set off by Heldens’ string of recent releases, including his remix of David Guetta and Bebe Rexha’s ‘I’m Good (Blue), and his huge collaboration with Nile Rodgers and House Gospel Choir “I Was Made For Lovin’ You.” On the HI-LO front, Oliver hasn’t been sitting still either, recently releasing “Nirvana” and “Samsara” with Reinier Zonneveld, the seventh collaboration between the two Dutchmen who continue to bring their innovative sounds to the techno scene. This collaboration contributed to HI-LO’s position as #1 best selling peak time Techno artist on Beatport over the last 12 months.
