Oliver Heldens brings us a new collaboration under his HI-LO alias with rising Brazilian star Alok. This to date is their very best in showing their dynamic partnership. Playing for the first time in his Essential Mix for the hit mix series of BBC Radio 1, HI-LO releases Alien Technology.
About the Track
The intro builds up energy that almost sends you into space. With sharp hi-hats, hard hitting bass kicks, and alien like vocals. Then come the synths that build the mood and drop with a huge range of effects that send us straight towards the drop! The track is very simplistic, but in a way that textures a metallic percussion and a low end of huge kicks, making for a techy edge. The name of the song really speaks to you through the vocal samples in the track. It’s almost as if aliens are trying to communicate to us through the song, and that’s exactly what we want.
What’s on the Horizon for the Duo
Alok’s official remix for the legendary Mick Jagger, and playing both weekends at Tomorrowland on the main stage along with a steady 8 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and his own single that went double-Platinum in Italy, Alien Technology is sure to be a huge hit for these two artists. Fresh off headlining the Heldeep Stage at Electric Forest this June, HI-LO will play the official Electric Zoo after party in New York.
