Elements of downtempo and house music are beautifully blended together for HAELIUM's collaboration with Peter Vogelaar called "Sides".

The rhythm section of the track feels quite straightforward, however the florid melodic section on "Sides" is bound to leave you enamored. Soft pianos complement the atmospheric textures that are drifting in the backdrop. And to my surprise, the influence of acid house makes an appearance in the second half to bring the track to life.

"Having met at a gig in Paris, the track was composed remotely with a careful meditation on each others contribution which led to the track title. Sides is the simple idea that conflict big or small comes from a lack of empathy and understanding of the others point of view."
