The music history is full of it, and now it also happens to Oliver Helden’s great hymn „Gecko“. The instrumental track has gained massive success combining the drive of Deep House rhythm with a banging melody that caught audiences around the world immediately. New things to come as June 22nd sees the release of a new version of the track that is called „Gecko (Overdrive)“ and features Becky Hill on vocals.
Seriously: do we need this? Sure, Becky Hill’s voice is unique and gives a fresh feeling to the original in some way, but it still sounds like ‘laid over an instrumental’. And it doesn’t make sense to me as this single is already a huge hit and there are other instrumental tracks that got hits without any vocals („Children“ anyone???). Judge for yourself:
Out on June 22nd.
