We’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of disco legends CHIC’s chart-topping single “Le Freak” with a bass-heavy house remix from Oliver Heldens. Heldens infuses his groovy house style with the funky, upbeat songwriting and production of Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards to reinvigorate this late 70’s classic. With the future house artist having rinsed the track in recent shows, Oliver Heldens’ remix is now officially out courtesy of Big Beat Records.

“I have always been a fan of disco music, and CHIC’s ‘Le Freak’ is one of my favourite disco songs. Growing up I heard it a lot because my parents loved CHIC. I really admire Nile Rodgers and he was always high on my list to work with, so it was a big honour that he asked me to remix Le Freak. I tried to keep it true to the original and had a lot of fun remixing it. I'm very happy with the result and super proud to release this remix.” - Oliver Heldens

Effortlessly blending house with its old-school disco counterpart, Heldens uses the original vocal hooks and iconic string and guitar melodies from “Le Freak” and underlays a bouncy synth bassline and punchy house drums. The accompanying video features an introduction courtesy of Nile Rodgers in which he recounts his and Edwards formulation of the original tune. It continues with trippy animations of Heldens and CHIC band members being brought to life as the remix pounds through the speakers. Check it out now below and enjoy!

There's just no stopping this man. Lane 8 has had an insane year so far and shows no signs at slowing down even a little bit. His Little By Little album was released at the beginning of the year and is still one of our favorite releases this year. On top of that he's kept a constant output of music including an EP, loose singles and various remixes that each showcase just how incredible of a producer he is. 

Now he's not only shared a new remix of George FitzGerald's "Burns," but Lane 8 took it upon himself to share two versions: a club mix and a morning mix. Last month he dropped loose single "The Disappearance of Colonel Mustard" which came shortly after a 5-hour mix and his "Bluebird / Duchess" EP. Now he's placed his spin on the already amazing original putting his magic touch on both version, as he once again delivers some incredible chill house. Enjoy!

Disclosure Return With Another Must Hear New Single "Where Angels Fear To Tread"


Another one! These past couple days have been like Christmas in August… except instead of santa it’s Disclosure and the presents are new tracks. Two of them actually. Yesterday they just dropped an incredible new song “Moonlight” and now they’re back with another one titled “Where Angels Fear To Tread” and I already can’t get enough of it. 

While “Moonlight” showed off their production chops and knack for crafting irresistible house instrumentals, “Where Angels Fear To Tread” utilizes an acapella sample from Swedish group The Real Group. Disclosure take the nostalgic tune and build production around it with infectious keyboard melodies, extra funky basslines and spacey synths all coming together with the house tempo drums in an uplifting way. Enjoy!
