Oliver Heldens’ HI-LO challenge is again eventually! “Impulse” is a scorching new collab with Barong Family common, Mike Cervello, and it’s been nicely definitely worth the wait. This beastly new tracks follows one other loopy summer time for Heldens, with Heldeep Records phases at most of the scene’s greatest and greatest festivals like Tomorrowland, Electric Forest, Spring Awakening Music Festival and South West Four.
Filtered kick drums poke away at a rising, siren-style FX sound whereas white noise wave rise over snare rolls. The full weight of the kick is unleashed as a phat electro pulse performs out an ascending scale bass line. The closely swung percussion provides the observe a drunken, swaying really feel, whereas a spoken vocal provides to the sense of depth.
Less is extra on this formidable, observe, with every component rigorously honed for max influence and layers of synths mirroring this ascending melody to make for a dizzying really feel. A haunting breakdown lays buzzing sustained synths underneath twinkling, maniacal melodies earlier than that phat, wonky groove slams again in. There’s a hardstyle-esque undertone to the entire thing that helps give it that darkish power, and as ever it’s all about mixing and bending the genres for HI-LO.
Now the HI-LO beast has stirred, count on extra high-grade weapons to emerge over the approaching months…
