HI-LO and Chocolate Puma share Heldeep Records heaterOliver

Oliver Heldens, under his HI-LO alias, teamed up with fellow Dutch artist Chocolate Puma for a new electro-house heater on Heldeep Records.

The track, aptly named “Lazersx999,” features a pushing beat and synths that resemble a video game. HI-LO and Chocolate Puma overwhelm the senses with unrelenting lasers, placing the listener in the center of the chaotic game the two artists created.

When producing as HI-LO, Heldens tends to lean more towards an electro style, and this new single is no exception to that rule. “Lazersx999” sounds like an ode to the European rave scene; its high energy begs to be featured heavily in the club culture.

Oliver Heldens delivers a summer anthem with Chic’s Nile Rodgers on ‘Summer Lover’Ultra Oliver Heldens

Oliver Heldens has gone in a new direction with a folk-leaning release “Summer Lover,” and as the title of the track alludes to, the new collaborative cut could be the summer anthem everyone is looking for. The track features vocals by Devin and Chic’s Nile Rodgers, with Heldens dropping his characteristic house chords, a kicking guitar backdrop, and flaring synths. The catchy melody adds a new element to a Helden’s production with its upbeat energy centered around the enthralling vocals, making the song a likely pop radio hit. The track is out now via RCA Records.

“Summer Lover” comes just as Heldens is wrapping the first North American leg of his Heldeep 5 World Tour. Stream “Summer Lover” below.
