HI-LO & Danny Avila Revitalize “Gangster’s Paradise” in New Single ‘PARADISE’

In an exhilarating collaboration, techno powerhouse HI-LO, the alter ego of Oliver Heldens, and Spanish sensation Danny Avila have unveiled their latest single, ‘PARADISE’. This track serves as a contemporary homage to Coolio’s iconic ‘Gangster’s Paradise’, itself a reinterpretation of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Pastime Paradise’. The single, released under HI-LO’s burgeoning label HILOMATIK, has been making waves across the globe, solidifying its position as one of HI-LO’s most celebrated releases last year.

‘PARADISE’ masterfully bridges Danny Avila’s signature Mainstage Techno with HI-LO’s unparalleled sound, garnering support from industry titans like Oliver Heldens, Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, and GORDO, among others. The track distinguishes itself with its ingenious fusion of universally recognized chorus vocals and deep, underground beats, crafting a soundscape that is both nostalgic and refreshingly innovative.

Oliver Heldens, under his HI-LO moniker, has experienced a meteoric rise within the techno domain, earning accolades for his contributions to the underground scene. HI-LO has become a synonym for cutting-edge, high-impact techno, with tracks like ‘Zeus’ and ‘Kronos’ dominating’s most-played charts in 2020. His prowess extends beyond the studio, with electrifying sets at major festivals and clubs worldwide, further cementing his status as a genre tastemaker.

HI-LO’s influence extends through collaborations and support from the industry’s elite, including Adam Beyer, Reinier Zonneveld, Carl Cox, and Solomun. His recent accolade as Beatport’s top-selling and most-streamed techno artist underscores his significant impact on the genre. The launch of HILOMATIK in January 2023 marks a new era, promising a slew of innovative releases and events that aim to redefine techno’s boundaries.

Danny Avila’s concept of Mainstage Techno encapsulates a vision where the raw energy of underground techno meets the grandeur of the world’s largest stages. Premiering at Tomorrowland’s Around The World festival in 2021, Mainstage Techno represents Avila’s full-circle journey to his DJing roots, elevated by his extensive experience captivating vast audiences. It’s a bold reimagining of techno, designed for the most colossal crowds and the most unforgettable experiences.

‘PARADISE’ is now available for streaming on HILOMATIK, marking a significant milestone for both HI-LO and Danny Avila as they continue to push the boundaries of techno music. This collaboration is not just a track but a testament to the evolving landscape of electronic music, where the past and future converge to create something truly groundbreaking.
