Oliver Heldens is back with another massive single, “Deja Vu,” and this time he’s enlisted his biggest vocal collaborator to date, Anabel Englund. Combining Oliver’s trademark production and basslines with Anabel’s seductive and powerful vocals, “Deja Vu” is a perfect track to play on the dancefloor, or riding with the top down into the sunset.
Amsterdam meets Los Angeles as Oliver holds it down with a steady bassline that easily flows into disco vibes with hi-hats and hand claps. All the while, Anabel’s siren-like vocal brings the listener into a bright and vibey experience. Oliver could have easily taken this beat and turned it into a club/festival track, but this is a brilliant direction making the track more radio-friendly. This is a highly accessible track. Here’s what Oliver and Anabel had to say about making “Deja Vu.”
“When I first started working on this track in early 2019 I tried a couple of things for the vocals with different singers and songwriters, which were good, but I knew it could be better and more special. I’ve been a fan of Anabel’s music since 2013, and even more so during this pandemic hearing all of her new music, I knew she could be perfect for this track, so I sent the instrumental to her and luckily she was really into it and she came back with an amazing topline idea for the track. We then met up in LA to finalize the song and recorded some extra hooky melodies, and after that, we were both even more convinced about this record, so we moved around some things in our release schedules to make this song our top priority because we think the world needs to hear it! Enjoy!” – OH
“Working with Oliver has been so effortless and fun. This song happened so beautifully and I can’t wait to share it with the world.” – AE
