Oliver Heldens is back with a massive new record in the form of Flamingo: a peak-time house track that blends underground vibe with commercial appeal in a big way. Already being played by a diverse range of A-list DJs like David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Diplo, Axwell, Nic Fanciulli, Krywolf and Kaskade, it looks set to become a major crossover success.
While the melodic breaks in Flamingo take you to a higher level the track still manages to deliver this strong continuous groove with it’s old skool ‘90s flavour, combining a signature Heldens bassline together with swingy tribal percussion and big sounding house stabs. Flamingo is a tune which not only puts down a fantastic vibe, it also has big impact when the beat kicks in. It’s very easy to dance to this timeless sounding sexy house tune. Some heavyweights from very different scenes are already playing it in their sets and that’s no surprise. Also with the great online response (already a quarter of a million plays in 5 days), it looks like Flamingo is a sure fire winner.
Following on from the success of his Bunnydance contest last year, Heldens will also be running a talent search on Instagram to find the best dancers to Flamingo for use in the upcoming video clip.
