EDM's resident sadboi's are back again, this time with "Hero," a collaboration from Said the Sky (real name Trevor Christensen) and Dabin featuring Olivver the Kid (real name Bryan Sammis). Released through Seeking Blue Records, the track follows the success of the first 'Dab the Sky' collab, "Superstar," released in 2018.
"Hero" is characteristically sentimental and soft, building on Dabin's signature guitar skills and Christensen's use of emotive synths. Vocals from Sammis add drama to a drop that offers a huge release of all the feels.
The aesthetic combination of sounds from Dabin and Christensen is unsurprisingly cohesive, given their prominence in the lyrical dubstep realm. The producers are known for their emotive music, as Dabin has made a name for himself with his live shows and Christensen has turned out collab after collab. See "Already Know" with Adventure Club and "Potions" with SLANDER for reference.
The two artists recently took the stage at Lost Lands for a special Dab the Sky B2B set. The pair also have been touring with Illenium for his ASCEND Tour, providing them the opportunity to tease "Hero" at Madison Square Garden.
