Following on from their much-loved collaboration Space Sheep earlier this year, Oliver Heldens once again teams up with Dutch house masters, Chocolate Puma, for new banger Steam Train—only this time he has donned his HI-LO mask!
Techno is the name of the game on their latest effort, with bruising rhythms and heavy percussion leading the charge. The track builds through layers of tribal drums and rolling grooves, metallic elements thumping as the energy builds. A nagging lead riff springs into life built around a tuned percussive sound, the whole affair channeling some of that classic Marco V tech-trance sound and even a little hard house flavour.
After the addictively hyperactive sounds of his HI-LO productions so far, Steam Train is a more direct, heads-down offering, and one that will still destroy dancefloors but in markedly different fashion.
The previews for the track have already picked up over 350,000 plays, and with the likes of Sander Van Doorn giving it some heavy road-testing, it’s set to be another smash for this dream team pairing.
