During his set at Tomorrowland last weekend, Dutch DJ Oliver Heldens unveiled his anticipated collaboration with Knife Party. The two acts had previously teased the joint effort over a year ago, and the lucky crowd in Boom, Belgium were the first to hear the song played out live.
Oliver Heldens and Knife Party deliver a groovy underground cut on their collaboration, defying expectations with a more subdued sound than we’ve come to expect from the Australian duo. Driving rhythms and clanking synths dominate the track, while an Egyptian string melody sounds off in the background. The elements all converge to create a slow burning dance number that draws more on Heldens’ HI-LO project than his usual future house style.
While it’s not the sort of blistering electro workout some fans might have expected from Knife Party and Oliver Heldens, the unreleased ID has plenty of energy to work at a massive festival like Tomorrowland and fans will no doubt be hopeful for an official release in the near future.
The collab starts around 14:37 in the video above. Check it out and let us know what you think.
