About Oliver Heldens.
Oliver Heldens (born February 1, 1995) is a producer from the Netherlands. His 2013 song, “Gecko”, caught the attention of Tiësto, who signed him to his label and released that track with vocals from Becky Hill on June 23, 2014. Heldens also has a radio show named Heldeep.
Heldens began his professional music career when he signed to Spinnin’ Records in 2013. His first releases on the label include “Stinger” and “Thumper” which features DJ Jacob van Hage. Later collaborations include “Panther” with ‘Robby East’ which was released on the Oxygen label on the December 2, 2013.
The single “Gecko” was released in the same month on DJ Tiesto’s Musical Freedom record label and peaked at number 1 on the DMC Magazine Buzz Chart and was named “Essential New Tune” by BBC’s Pete Tong on January 31, 2014. In January 2014, Heldens launched his Heldeep Mixtape on his official SoundCloud page, creating extended mixes which incorporate different genres of electronic dance music including different types of deep house and tech house.
The first mixtape included his remix of label mate, Martin Garrix’s “Animals” which was largely well received by the press who described the new version as, “leaving us with a completely new anthem with a notable melody left intact.”
Heldens also released a remix of Robin Thicke’s “Feel Good” in 2014 and will be touring the summer festival and night club circuit with appearances at EDC, Amnesia Ibiza, Tomorrowland, Departures Ushuaia Ibiza, Creamfields, Electric Zoo Festival, Veld Music Festival and Stereosonic.
