Kris ‘Halo’ Pierce skillfully blurs reality with this Coldwave-meets-Ambient Breaks track, blending his signature melancholic vocals with haunting, ever-evolving melodies. Drive With Me (To The Edge of Space) is an escapist anthem. Twenty-one years after two high school friends set up a studio in the garage, the symbiotic, outside-the-box, song-crafting between Kris Pierce and Wendi Hughes, remains strong. The etherial, stream-of-consciousness vocalizations by Elaine Benavides twist expertly around the cut time beats and frantic breaks, taking on a life of their own as a living, breathing lullaby.
The supporting remixes, produced by Halo as well, are deep dives into House and Drum n Bass territory and are wildly diverse. Whereas the original mix is more living room electronica, Halo’s Insomnia House and Everything Breakz remixes are DJ set friendly.
Catch DJ Halo spinning live in Amsterdam on October 17, 2018, at the world famous Kashmir Lounge during ADE. He’ll be debuting a new track, Drive With Me (To The Edge of Space), during his set. View the announcement HERE

The music video was filmed on the island of Ibiza, Spain by Sascha Vos de Wael and Tomas Toonders. It tells the story of a musician and producer on tour in Europe, and through their travels on the island of Ibiza, find musical inspiration. Sweeping drone footage, beach splashes and impromptu reactions very much show the creative chemistry between Kim and DJ Halo.
