Oliver Heldens is back with the definitive sound of summer in the form of ‘Break This Habit’, featuring London reggae singer, Kiko Bun. And best of all, it’s all in the name of charity.
Distorted kick drums are well complemented by off-beat tribal percussive hits, while classic Heldens electro bass wobbles and warps a pleasing melody. On-beat claps join in the tribal feel as the tropical keys rise into action. Kiko Bun’s soulful, powerful vocal cuts through beautifully as the soaring chorus melodies burst into life and the bass and lead melody unites into a thick wave of sound. It’s a melancholic cut that screams ‘summer’, coming on like tropical house taken into a darker, more dramatic place.
Payback Records — a joint venture with Big Beat/Atlantic Records, who will release the record in partnership with Heldeep — are donating all the proceeds from this single to organizations who are helping support those affected by COVID-19, as well as others struggling with addiction. They are funding organizations focused on procuring and delivering basic necessities to frontline health care workers, as well as supporting Shatterproof, Caron and Safe Project — three charities tackling America’s addiction epidemic.
