It’s safe to say that the ZHU trend is alive and well. Within the last year, dance music has been experiencing an influx of mystery producers, like marshmello and ATTLAS, who choose to remain nameless, often prompting Internet detectives to go searching for their true identities. The Internet water cooler gossip only heightens with each release, and self-proclaimed experts begin speculating as to the identities of these mystery producers, claiming that Skrillex is actually marshmello, or that deadmau5 is ATTLAS. When the mysterious bass house producer, HI-LO, surfaced a few months ago on Mad Decent, the Internet went searching for clues as to his identity, and it looks like they’ve hit the nail on the head as to who he really is – Oliver Heldens. The Dutch phenom revealed himself as the mastermind behind HI-LO, and unveiled his newest single, “Renegade Mastah,” which will be the first release on his recently-announced Heldeep Records. “Renegade Mastah” builds on the bass house sound that Heldens explored in “Crank It Up,” as he borrows the familiar vocal sample from “Renegade Master” by Wildchild. The track is due out on July 20th via Heldeep Records.
