HI-LO & Chocolate Puma – LAZERSX999

Three of the biggest house names in the industry, the Dutch icons Oliver Heldens and the duo Chocolate Puma have teamed up to present a brand new track. This time, Oliver Heldens has used his renowned alias HI-LO for this new track called ‘LAZERSX999‘ that promises to be one of the club sensations of the summer.

The collaboration, which is out now on Heldens’ label Heldeep Records, is the third collaboration between the Rotterdam and Harlem based artists after their previous tracks ‘Space Sheep‘ and ‘Steam Train‘ and the second one as Heldens performing under his HI-LO alias.

While the track starts pretty uplifting with snares and lasers leading the way to the drop, the three legends surprised us all with the darkness and hardness of the drop. A punch hitting sound perfectly produced acts as a mindblowing blunt force weapon that will for sure blow away all tech house lovers this summer season. Deflating and lowering the tempo, the song adopts a more melodic tone on the break only to build the way to the top again and clashing two a second drop that fills with pure adrenaline.

Being asked about the song and their continuous collaborations, Heldens explains it’s their long-standing friendship and the admiration they have for each other what has brought them together in the studio so often:

There’s no one I look up to more in the electronic music scene than Chocolate Puma. We had a lot of fun making this one and despite having a very different mentality when it comes to producing, we compliment one another very well. There are always a lot of ‘discussions’ in the studio but it’s always a good time.’

‘After hearing records with some lazer sounds lately, we thought we might as well take it to the next level and make a track with lots of (999?) lazers. So it’s a straight to the point dancefloor record that sounds like nothing we’ve done before but couldn’t be anything else than a Hi-Lo & Chocolate Puma collab.’ says Chocolate Puma.

‘The track name says it all and I’m super happy about how the sound turned out’, adds Oliver Heldens.

After getting another big tune as a result of their great collab, we just can do nothing but celebrate that these guys get along so well, as we wait for more Oliver Heldens and Chocolate Puma material to please our ears.
