HI-LO x Reinier Zonneveld – Saw Of Olympus
Opening with a mesmerizing soundscape, “Saw of Olympus” is a robust techno gem showcasing HI-LO’s exploration of the underground. Featuring Filth on Acid label head Reinier Zonneveld, this single marks the first of what is to expected be a series of new material from the duo. Reinier has also notably worked with Speedy J and Dyen, while HI-LO has connected with T78, and Will Clarke.
“Over the last few years I’ve become a big fan of Reinier’s productions, his style, and his label Filth on Acid, so a few months ago I sent him a couple of new HI-LO ideas that I was working on and he was really into them, so he invited me to his studio to work on some of these together. In the studio we were a really good match, it was very inspiring for the both of us, and I definitely learned a lot from him. We ended up doing multiple studio sessions and we are working on a few different tracks together now which I’m really excited about! This new track ‘Saw of Olympus’ is the first one that we finished. We called it ‘Saw of Olympus’, because the track has a very distinctive Saw synth, a real “Saw of the Gods”, continuing the Greek god theme of my latest HI-LO releases Athena, Kronos, Zeus, and Poseidon. Hope you like it :)”Oliver Heldens
“Since the whole scene is in lockdown and sitting at home, everybody has more time on hand to work on new things. For me, this is a great way to explore new collabs that might not be the most obvious ones. Oliver Heldens has been sending me some of his techno works for over a year already – under his alias HI-LO. I really liked what I heard and invited him over to my studio. Turns out he is a great producer and a very fun guy to work with, and we ended up doing regularly very inspiring and productive sessions which resulted in a whole bunch of new tracks that we’re both very happy with! One of these tracks is Olympus of Saw, and I’m really happy to share it with you on my label Filth on Acid NOW!”Reinier Zonneveld
Oliver Heldens reserves his HI-LO alias for his deepest sounds and darkest records. He has taken the techno scene by storm by releasing massive records that have earned support from the likes of Enrico Sangiuliano, UMEK, Amelie Lens, deadmau5, and Above & Beyond amongst others. His two releases “Zeus” & “Kronos”, landed in the top 10 of the most supported Techno tracks on 1001tracklists in 2020, which was a contributing factor to the artist being awarded the coveted number one spot as the most supported artist on the platform.
