Interview with Oliver Heldens at Parookaville

Oliver Heldens Parookaville

During our press trip at Parookaville, we had an a really short mini interview with Oliver Heldens due to his busy schedule and time constraints. We though asked Oliver a really important question about this recent alias Hi-Lo. Here is the the short interview between us and Oliver Heldens:

You have released so many tracks, both as Oliver Heldens and HI-LO as well. Which one do you enjoy the most?

"Well, I love doing both, but yeah, the last three years, I've been a little bit more focused on Hi-Lo, like for me, that has been a little bit more exciting, I guess. But at the same time, at the moment, I'm working on a lot of bit higher BPM trancy ravy stuff as Oliver Heldens, which I like to call 'EuroRave'. And I'm also really excited about those things so, yeah, it's really hard to pick. I love doing both."
