Oliver Heldens teams up with Shantel to breathe new life into the German DJ and producer’s 2008 smash single, ‘Bucovina.’
An artist known for DJing, remixing, and combining traditional Balkan music with electronic beats, Shantel’s original version of ‘Bucovina’ turned prominent calypsonian Wilmoth Houdini’s 1930s Calypso classic ‘Black But Sweet,’ into a Ukrainian folk vs. Balkan style masterpiece which became a dance music hit in Europe.
Now, Oliver Heldens and Shantel have teamed up to turn “Bucovina’ into a modern dance smash that features an infectious signature Heldens bassline that pairs nicely with the main riff while also giving off some spicy Latin house vibes. While summer might be drawing to a close, this track is a reminder that there’s still plenty of heat to go around.
