HI-LO. One of the biggest names in house music. Sorry, my bad. One of the biggest aliases in house music. Oliver Heldens‘ alter ego continues to rise up as a fan favorite. Release after release, HI-LO has given us a whole different vision into what house music really means to Heldens. A completely new sound, more focused towards the grandiosity of house music. Ever since teaming up with Reinier Zonneveld, Helden’s project has acquired a whole new sound. Personally, I’m all for it. This new side of HI-LO is beautiful. Filled with magic and an energy I didn’t quite feel on Helden’s latest tracks under his very own name. I can’t say they were bad releases. HI-LO, however, has been nothing but perfect. HI-LO’s latest collab with Reinier Zonneveld is titled ‘Balearic Mornings‘.
Quite the match. The two DJs work together like clockwork to deliver a hardcore house sound that borrows elements from different genres. Heldens continues to be a house music powerhouse. Zonneveld, on the other side, has been making a name by himself lately through acid house. If you’re a big Heldens fan, you’ll notice the DJ has slowly evolved step by step into a more acid version of himself. It all started by playing more and more acid house tracks at his sets. Then, HI-LO exploded into a massive Acid House collaborator. Alongside Zonneveld, the pair released their track ‘Saw Of Olympus’. About that track, Heldens declared:
WE CALLED IT ‘SAW OF OLYMPUS’, BECAUSE THE TRACK HAS A VERY DISTINCTIVE SAW SYNTH, A REAL “SAW OF THE GODS”
So, how good exactly is ‘Balearic Mornings’? The new track from HI-LO & Zonneveld is a great sequel. Just like Heldens said. A sound of the gods. A whole new, immense track. The duo has done an amazing job. I’m really excited and can’t wait to see what comes next. Props to the duo!
