Oliver Heldens is back on his Heldeep imprint under HI-LO alter-ego with Poseidon, a full-throttle techno banger.
Poseidon is Oliver’s third apparition as HI-LO in 2019; in June he released another banger with Chocolate Puma on Heldeep as well but, this time, he went really underground. Rumbling sub-bass throbs away under hard-punching kick before the rasping, distorted synth lead hovers into focus. A huge snare and clap build pushes the intensity before the full, majorly detuned, guttural lead pummels us into submission. With a seriously wide stereo vibration dominating the attention, this gritty sound plays out a dark melody. Layers of filth bolster its texture before a heavenly vox synth-style arpeggio arrives in the main break to provide some pretty juxtaposition. Handle with care: this one is absolutely devastating!
A little change from the sound we are used to hearing from HI-LO but, surely much appreciated as the track has already 30k plays on Soundcloud and almost 150k on Spotify.
Oliver Heldens is digging deep in his crate for his headline sets, plowing through lots of classics, plenty of exclusive new material from his studio and Heldeep Records and even some tech-house and techno flavors in the vein of this storming new single.
