HI-LO Gets Dark & Gritty with “Zeuz” Out via mau5trap [LISTEN]

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard from HI-LO — and the producer, better known as Oliver Heldens, just released on mau5trap.

“Zeus” is as dark and gritty as we’ve heard him take the techno project. With its distorted synths, hyper percussion, and overall high energy, the track has us missing raves badly — and sprawling over five minutes, the entrancing production keeps us guessing until the very end.

The collaboration with mau5trap feels instinctive, as the song joins other high caliber 2020 releases from i_o & Lights, deadmau5 & The Neptunes, Speaker Honey and more. Explore the roster.

Listen to the power of “Zeuz” right here.

Major Lazer, Avicii Top List Of Most Shazam’d Summer Songs of The Past Decade

We’re in the midst of a global pandemic that has shut down all live entertainment events for the past three months, so in lieu of concert reviews and live event round ups, analytics companies everywhere have taken to looking at streaming and radio.

KISS FM (in the UK, not KIIS FM in the states) and Shazam set out to find the biggest summer songs of the past decade, based on how many times the track has been searched on the music ID app. The results show that EDM is unabashedly tied with summer vibes, with artists like Major Lazer, Avicii, Kungs, Lost Frequencies, Oliver Heldens, Sam Feldt, Clean Bandit, and Robin Schulz all appearing in the top 10.

The top track goes to Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and MØ’s massive summer hit, “Lean On,” which also has 1.3 billion plays on Spotify and a huge 2.8 billion plays on YouTube. The second spot goes to the “Despacito” remix with Justin Bieber which shattered records when it came out, followed by Avicii’s defining hit, “Wake Me Up.”

According to the data, there were more songs on the list from 2018 than from any other year. However there were more songs in the top 10 from 2015 than any other year. Anyone who can remember as far back as 2015 can attest that the vibes that year were just… different.

Kiss presenter Tyler West said: “Summer might be a little different this year, but it doesn’t mean we can’t blast out some music, get amongst happy memories and have a good time.

“Hosting this show brought me back so many moments of past summers gone by and this selection is the perfect playlist to get you pumped for those sunny days ahead.”
