With over 850 million cumulative streams, Y2K and bbno$’ infectious ‘Lalala’ has been one of the year’s big breakthrough hits. Charting Top 10 at pop around the world, it has become inescapable, and now gets a huge house rework from the master that is Oliver Heldens.
Cleverly switching between the hip-hop rhythm of the original and his pumping house style, Heldens has delivered a seriously infectious remix here. The low end is amped up to the fullest, with his rubbery bassline wobbling atop his typically snappy house beats. A raw, detuned electro synth riff mimics the guitar line of the original, and with careful use of FX to increase the vocal intensity, he completes a powerful patchwork of sound. The remix has been teased in many of Heldens’ live shows in recent months, and the reactions have been suitably huge. You can check out the remix below and let us know what you think!
