  • HI-LO Returns to Drumcode with CRESCENDO/OPEN YOUR MIND EP


    Oliver Heldens has been a busy man this summer; playing multiple sets at world renowned festivals and pumping out a steady stream of releases under two names. Just last week, under his HI-LO alias, Oliver returned to Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label with another A/B side release “CRESCENDO”/”OPEN YOUR MIND”.

    This is HI-LO’s third such offering on Drumcode, following “Hypnos/Hera” in 2021 and “Rabbit Hole” with Layton Giordani last year. “CRESCENDO” follows the HI-LO formula to a T, with a pounding kick drum, dark and vibey rhythm and creeping synths.

    “My aim was to craft something hypnotic, dark, and trippy while maintaining a melodic and groovy essence,” Oliver says. “Personally, ‘CRESCENDO’ is one of those tracks I can play on an endless loop without getting tired of it. It has been exhilarating to witness the overwhelming response to the track in my HI-LO sets and in Adam’s sets at Time Warp in Germany and Brazil.”

    “OPEN YOUR MIND” is an energetic banger that will get you grooving to the beat. The trademark HI-LO kick drum is there to open the track, but the bassline and unrelenting beat take center stage on this track. Not surprisingly, this is a track that has made it into Oliver’s more mainstream sets. Regardless of genre, “Open Your Mind” is a certifiable banger.

    “After months of road testing and fine-tuning, I am beyond excited about the final result.” Oliver added of “OPEN YOUR MIND. “I’ve had a blast playing this track not only in my HI-LO sets but also in several ‘mainstage’ sets as Oliver Heldens.”
