Who would have thought that future house and nu disco would go together so well?
Future house poster child Oliver Heldens teamed up with self-proclaimed “dirty disco” artist Throttle on a track called “I’ve Been Waiting” that makes us want to hear more artists take a stab at the stylistic synthesis.
For what it’s worth, though, even though Throttle is easily the lesser-known of the two artists, his contributions easily carry the track. A balance between upbeat instrumentals and a crisp rave piano melody set the pace for the arrangement before the organ synth bass line – which has Oliver Heldens all over it – gives a future house tinge to what the Melbourne-based artist put together.
While “I’ve Been Waiting” is most likely a one-off between Oliver Heldens and Throttle, if it sees enough success then perhaps “future disco” will actually be a thing.
