After coming together throughout fall 2017 for the Horizon Tour, powerhouse producers Seven Lions, Kill The Noise and duo Tritonal dropped their much-anticipated collaboration “Horizon” feat. HALIENE today. Each of these explosive artists has been up to big things in 2018 – Seven Lions announced his Ophelia label and Kill The Noise dropped his incredible “Killumination” mixtape as he heads out on his own headlining tour, to start. “Horizon” is yet another impressive achievement from each of these musicians.
A collaboration between three groups (composed of four producers total) is easier said than done; with vastly different styles, the final product could have descended into a jumbled mess. Instead, each artist’s signature shines while still remaining cohesive with the track’s tone.
A euphoric intro guides the listener in, with HALIENE’s lofty vocals and a gradual build sounding quite Seven Lions-esque. The drop is split into three distinct sections where we can only assume each producer or group steps up to the plate. The first piece is reminiscent of Seven Lions, composed of a raucous kick and rumbling bass combined with glowing progressions. Next up is Kill The Noise – this dark section bursting with chopped up bass will no doubt take you by surprise. Last is Tritonal with a more radiant, lighthearted piece rolling smoothly into the outro. This style of collaborating was definitely a risk that paid off in leaps and bounds for these four. Check out “Horizon” below and enjoy!
