In just a few short years, Oliver Heldens has masterfully translated his dance music career into a revered alter-ego, HI-LO, in the Techno realm, gaining underground acclaim along the way. HI-LO has become synonymous with groundbreaking, hard-hitting techno that breaks genre boundaries. Today, HI-LO presents a remix of the iconic English electronic music band Depeche Mode’s ‘Speak To Me’, a track from their 2023 album “Memento Mori”.
HI-LO ingeniously weaves his remix around the original melody, constructing a dense techno soundscape that interlaces seamlessly with Dave Gahan’s signature vocals. While reimagining the instrumental arrangement, HI-LO maintains the emotional resonance of the lyrics, allowing them to shine through the innovative sonic canvas. This remix joins HI-LO’s recent 2023 releases, including ‘Crescendo,’ ‘Bonzai,’ ‘Brazil,’ ‘Arpeggio’ (with Space 92), the Pura Vida EP, and his debut on his HILOMATIK imprint, complete with a standout Wehbba remix. His collaboration with Reinier Zonneveld, the two-track Nirvana EP, further underscores his musical prowess.
As HI-LO embarks on a bustling summer of global performances, including appearances at Ultra Europe (Resistance), Airbeat One Festival, Tomorrowland & Mysteryland (Drumcode), Weeknd Festival, Fest Festival, Electric Zoo, and Elrow, his remix of ‘Speak To Me’ adds a compelling chapter to his evolving artistic narrative.
