Since our interview with Sam Feldt following his live band performance at Tomorrowland last year, his most successful hit ‘Post Malone’ (feat. RANI) has been racking up more than half a billion streams and he has continued working on new music while growing his non-profit sustainability platform Heartfeldt Foundation and launching Heartfledt Records.
On March 27, ‘Hold Me Close‘, marked the start of this much awaited new project. Heartfeldt Records debut release with over 13 million plays already underlines Sam Feldt’s undeniable talent to bring a pop record alive with tempting hooks and lively dance rhythms. His background in deep house blends perfectly with the track’s chorus, inviting fans to sing along to Ella Henderson‘s powerful vocals, while proclaiming a universal longing to connect and share emotions.
After two months of marinating Sam Feldt’s ‘Hold Me Close’ proves to resonate with many esteemed producers, calling for proper remix treatment. The decadent ‘Hold Me Close’ remix package offers a range of versions from a thumping club edition by Feldt and a horn injected take from France’s RetroVision to a future bend by Jerome from Hamburg, LA based Justin Caruso‘s tropical touch and London’s Shift K3Y‘s wild house cut.
“Working with Ella on a track has been a dream of mine for many years so I am super excited to finally have worked with her on this song, which sends a message of love and hope in these challenging times. This pre-summer jam is all about keeping your loved ones close and spending quality time with them, something a lot of us can relate to at the moment in light of the current Coronavirus situation. Many of us are stuck to our houses right now, so I hope this track will make you dance in your living room and look forward to the summer (and hopefully the festivals) to come. With this track, we also launch my new Heartfeldt Records imprint and I couldn’t have asked for a better first release on the label!” – Sam Feldt
In the middle of releasing ‘Hold Me Close’ and the remix package, Sam Feldt pealed back another layer of his onion by dropping a techno mix for his Sunday Sessions. A Sam Feldt redux is what the scene has been missing.
