Rising Dutch star Todd Helder makes his hotly anticipated NCS label debut with the stunning Guy Arthur collaboration ‘Closer’, out for full international release.
A blissed out slice of future electronica, ‘Closer’ sees Helder and Arthur delicately blend elements of hip-hop, bass and trap, using vocalist TITUS’s topline to expertly thread the entire production together cohesively.
Stuttering and shuddering in places, smooth and sweeping in others, the single’s dreamy, filtered synths carry an undertone of 80s electronica which should come as no surprise to fans of Helder’s retro-influenced sound.
Helder of course sprang to fame on the back of his Marshmello ‘Alone’ remix, which the bucket-headed sensation played non-stop on the road. Following up with releases on Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS label and Lowly, Helder cemented his growing status further with huge shows at Ushuaia Ibiza and a set at the almighty Tomorrowlands.
Hailing from Poland, Arthur’s effervescent bootleg remixes of artists like Sam Smith, Julian Jordan and Nero have increasingly caught the ears of fellow producers and music tastemakers, including NCS’ revered A&R team.
