OLIVER HELDENS & PARTY PUPILS and MAX, “Set Me Free”
The music business sometimes finds the unlikeliest people making a collaboration that comes out slicker and better than you might expect. The careers of Oliver Heldens and MAX have been made up of many of such serendipitous events! Within a year of releasing his own music as a teenager, the Dutch producer’s “Gecko (Overdrive)” (featuring Becky Hill) soared to #1 in the UK. And that was a liftoff no one could expect – collaborations with the best of the dance music biz followed, along with numerous electronic dance hits and formidable gigs around the world. MAX’s travels have taken him from modeling and acting, through to being a go-to voice in the dance music world and finding a huge fan base in South Korea (as well as connecting to BTS!), all while making his own music either solo or with his best buddy Ryan in Party Pupils. So, all of these forces converge to make the heavenly and anthemic “Set Me Free”. The energetic Party Pupils vibe and MAX’s resilient voice highlight and compliment Oliver’s snazzy production. “Set Me Free” is one that you will play on repeat and is a great end-of-year anthem through which we can say good riddance to 2020.
