Oliver Heldens x Riton – Turn Me On (Dr. Love)
No doubt that Oliver Heldens has been enjoying incorporating the 70’s-80’s vibes into today’s club life, and we are mad about it! A perfect example is his latest release in collaboration with English DJ and producer Henry Smithson, better known by his stage name Riton. The track was played at Oliver’s Tomorrowland set, and ever since then, the EDM fans have been impatiently waiting for the release of what was referred to as “Dr. Love”. The track has finally arrived on the Sony-owned record label, Ministry of Sound, and was eventually baptised as ‘Turn Me On‘.
The two brilliant producers got the opportunity to sample the classic Yazoo song from 1982 ‘Don’t Go’, hence the iconic hook follows through from start till end, bringing us back to the golden age of the disco era. But to give it a modern touch, the young Dutchman combined his style with Riton’s to add some signature house beats mixed with the soulful vocals of Vula, that spices up the track entirely with its sensual lyrics. And if it would not be enough, they also included a snippet of the 1977 disco tune ‘Doctor Love’ by the girl group, First Choice as the cherry on top of the cake. We absolutely love the groovy song that will help us survive the gray days now that the festival season has ended.
And in case you would like to smile a bit, watch Oliver Heldens singing the ‘Don’t Go’ synths sample here, during his interview at Tomorrowland.
On another note, Amsterdam Dance Event is only a few weeks away from now, meaning that this year’s top list of DJs by DJ Mag is soon to be released during AMF. Last year, the founder of Heldeep Records was crowned as the prestigious #9 DJ on the DJ Mag Top 100 of 2018, we are curious to find out this October where he will land on the high-profile ranking.
Until then, put on your disco shoes and celebrate the fresh hit with some dance moves! Enjoy!
