‘Zapdos’, the new banger track by Oliver Heldens, inspired by the original legendary Pokémon, is now out on Heldeep Records!
Oliver Heldens returns with his second release of 2021, with the fiery ‘Zapdos’, out via Heldeep Records!
Inspired by the original legendary Pokémon, the instrumental club track displays the global DJ/producer’s diversity once again. The eponymous creature was based on a mythical phoenix always surrounded by lightning and thunder, which impeccably portrays the feel of this club-ready track.
Subtle percussive elements punctuate the rhythm as a brooding synth bass hovers in the background menacingly. Ride cymbals are combined with electrifying hi-hats, setting pulses racing and spines tingling blissfully into the abyss, propelling us to the drop.As the chorus is about to hit, percussive rhythms are added as the arp filters into clarity boosting the track with energy and creating a surprisingly full sound from just a few elements. The contrast between the big, swirling chords and the alluring and upbeat keys send ‘Zapdos’ soaring higher.
Following on from ‘Never Look Back’, which amassed millions of streams in a matter of weeks, Oliver is already on his way to another smashing year.
The instrumental masterpiece will undoubtedly be the novelty hit of the summer, and you can find it HERE!
